So Sorry NG. It's admirable and a great tribute to him that you share his story and your pain in the hopes it helps another.

There is a fantastic book out there that I had 2 different friends send to me & I'm reading it still, probably for the 6th time. It's titled How to Survive the Loss of a Love. Get it. I laugh, I cry, it helps. Reach out to others. It's helped me.

A beautiful tribute to your son. Thank you for setting aside your pain to remind others that addiction is a disease and not a reflection of a person's worth. God has Danny in His arms now.

It took a lot of courage to share your story. It provokes a lot of thoughts.  Thank you for that. Condolences to you and your family.

Such a sad story.  So many lives taken by accident, addictions & natural causes...way too young.

 

May god bless you and your family going forward.

This past Friday afternoon, my son Danny lost a long battle with addiction.  My heart has a gigantic hole in it that is only getting bigger as the hours go by.  Danny was (as some of you that met him) a kind, funny and gregarious boy...he never lost those qualities.  He tried to beat his demons over the past 6 years, and was temporarily successful for months at a time...once over a year!  He never wanted that life and hated it, he never gave up...My family and I never gave up on him...we loved him so much.  Friday I got the call that no parent ever wants to get.  He will be coming home for the last time later this week.  Not the homecoming We ever wanted.
 
He was a life long rabid Bills fan.  Proud to be a Bills fan. Wore his Bills colors in the heart of Dolphin territory...we texted each other all game long, shared the victories and the defeats...planned to come this this years tailgate.  Now that's all gone.
 
My plea to you is to have compassion for people in his position, they don't want to be there...they hate it, are ashamed of it...and sometimes just can't escape it.  I miss my son and best buddy...I'd gladly change places with him, he was so young so much to live for.  Please say a prayer for Danny to finally be at peace.


I'm so very sorry to hear this. I freely admit I cried while reading it, both for your loss and knowing it just as easily could have been us. Take comfort in knowing that Danny is at peace. Thank you for sharing this as people need to better understand that addiction affects good people. We all need to judge less and try harder to understand more. Danny, you and your family will stay in our thoughts and prayers.

NG  Very sorry to hear about your loss.  I have seen the damaging affects of addiction which leaves me hating the drug culture with every fiber of my being.

Pain is the cost of love.  Those who do not experience anguish do not love deeply.  I believe with Julian of Norwich that "all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well," but that is an eschatological hope.  Your words are tribute to your son and to the love of a family for each other.  God bless.  You are in my prayers.
