About my Loss:
My son passed away early morning of November 22 of an accidental overdose. He had insomnia and someone had sold him a fentanyl patch to "slow him down." It worked one night, but didn't the next and then someone gave him Xanax. Died of respiratory failure. I was sleeping next to him. He had called me to come (he lived in TX but was moving to Florida). He had no idea what the patch really was. I am having the woman who sold it prosecuted. I am heartbroken.

Oh Jill, that is so awful...my son was into Xanax with his friends. I don't understand why. Good for you to have her prosecuted, I only wish I could find the person that turned my son onto heroin, ultimately I know it was his choice to do it of course. Hugs to you, I'm so sorry.

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.See More
"I realize more and more each day that my mom was the center-piece of my life. The one constant I always had in my life was my mom. All was right with the world as long as I had my mom. Of course I had bad days, but I still had my mom. And now I…"
