My 28 year old nephew passed away about 7 weeks ago. He was as close as one of my own children, however, I know he was not my child so therefore I know that I am only feeling a smidgen of the pain that my sister is feeling right now.
I feel such a loss for her and myself. I cannot accept it and I am sure she feels the same way. I just try to be there for her and occupy the time if she wants to do anything to get away. I sent her this website as I think it has tremendous information that I think she can use.
He was to graduate from nursing school this Dec. He passed away from an accidental prescription overdose. This is an epidemic in this country and in my state of Florida. There is an article everyday of someone who has passed away due to the prescription pain killers.
Just wanted to say thanks for this website.
