My son's funeral is Sat. June 19

The "celebration of my son's life is this Saturday June 19.
3:00 p.m. pacific standard time.

If you are able, please light a candle for us at that time.

San Francisco and heroin kicked his ass. However, we will remember him for all the gifts he gave us and the beautiful 26 yr. old son, friend and family member that he was. With two yrs. sober just prior he was a real force of nature.
I miss him.

I did not see this when it was first posted...
I just went back and read your original post
I am sorry to be late sending my love but I could not let the moment pass....

I remember your early posts and our chats regarding our sons
your words were always a comfort and an inspiration for me

I am glad you found a way to honor your son's life that is comforting to you
I pray that you will be surrounded by family and friends

so many beautiful lives have been lost to this dreadful disease
I pray that the day will come when all people will unite to fight and defeat this enemy

tomorrow i will light a candle for your beloved son

I promise a candle will be lit at my house. I wish I were there to give you a hug and help in any way that I could with the celebration of his life. You are one of the people here on SR that I feel I 'know', and yet have not met. You've said many things that helped me. I'm just so sorry this happened. Sending warm hugs on the Kansas winds to you!

I've been away Spiritual Seeker - I'm so so sorry.
Both you and your son, and all who loved him, are in my prayers.

May our candles be a symbol of our love for you and our prayers for your son and all who loved him.

And may the light of our candles shine through to your heart so you know we stand with you today.

(((Seeker))) I think of you every day. I wish there were a way to lesson the grief you feel... but then I think, rather than lesson it, it is even better to honor it.... for you would not grieve so deeply, had you also not loved so deeply. You and your loved ones are in my thoughts and prayers. Another candle will be lit in honor of your son and celebration of his life.

I have read your words of wisdom many times during my
travels with my own son. Your gentle way has carried me
over many a hurdle to reach a positive answer within myself.
I can only give back by saying thank you, your loss is also
our loss..HP bless you, your family and may you find the
comfort that you have given so generously.
