I am a newcomber to this sight. I am so sorry for the loss of your son, like another previous poster said this is the one thing we truly dread as parents. May GOD grant you peace in this time of great difficulty.

When it hit 3:00 my time, I went to the virtual candle-lighting site (thanks, CO) and then realized that I was going to away from home at 3:00 your time. So I walked around and lit about 8 different candles, so that as I walk through the house for the next hour and a half, every flame will remind me of you, and your son.

I wish you peace soon.

Oh Dear God, I just read this and had to sign in to tell you how very sorry I am! Like everyone else I am in shock. I will look for your original post. I will never forget our phone conversation when I thought something had happened to my son, as his gf reported him missing and you just happened to ring me at the same time. You had such a calming effect on me~ sure wish I could do the same for you. Sending you love, light, hugs and prayers. Your son is resting in peace.

I have been away and only just saw this post. Lauren's words are what is in my heart also. I could not have said it better. Don't know if you remember, but I am in the same struggle with my son. Your words have always been a beacon of light in the darkness for me.

Please know that we are all standing with you. I will be lighting a candle in my home tonight to honor your son and your love for him.

No energy to hit the thanks button, but...

ThANK YOU ALL THE CANDLE LIGHTING + WORDS OF SYMPATHY,
I NEED YOU NOW AND I FEEL THE SUPPORT.
EVERYONE HAS GONE HOME OR TO SLEEP. I AM SLEEPLESS, IN SHOCK AND DISBELIEF. MY SON IS GONE, WHICH IS A FACT I MUST LIVE WITH
AS I LEARN TO LET GO.

It was a veritable ocean of candle flames here on SR, yesterday, from all the candles for your son, SS. Like a wheat field, blowing in the breezes, were the candles.

We all know this disease could claim one of our loved ones at any time. We were right there with you, knit into the fabric of the family effects of addiction. We hope our net will help hold you up as you transition through your grief.

I wish I could help take your pain, but all I can do is walk beside, in support.

:ghug3 A thousand gentle hugs, for the thousand tears you will shed, today.

And a hand, held out, to help catch the broken pieces of your heart.

Sending love,

CLMI
