My heart goes out to you. My 31 year old son died officially on August 9, 2011 from an heroin overdose. He laid at the hospital for 24 hours before we knew. When we got to the emergency room and saw him connected to life support I knew then that we had lost him. He overdosed on August 4th and was found in a McDonald's restroom. They do not know how long he was without oxygen and did not get a pulse until 20 minutes later in the emergency room. We also are now caring for his 10 year old son. Right now I am crying as I cannot bear now being able to see him again. He was my youngest son. At the time of his death, we did not know how we were going to pay the costs for a funeral. By God's grace, our church stepped forward and paid for him to be cremated and had a beautiful memorial service for him. Over 200 people came to the service. The family also decided to donate his organs. Because of his drug addiction it was found that he had Hepatitis C. Gift of Life was able to use his liver for a 55 year old woman who also had Hepatitis C. Just knowing this gives me comfort. As my son always loved and helped everyone and would have wanted us to do this. My heart goes out to you and I will pray for you. I am an ordained priest and am struggling through this. All I know is that we need to "Rest with God" and that he is a "God of Comfort". Just know that your son is present with the Lord and is at peace. Drugs are horrible and not only does the drug user suffer, the family also suffers. May God Bless you and your family through this most difficult time.

died 8/9/'s been one long horrible year. I've cried rivers. One thing that's helped is The Compassionate Friends. See if they have a meeting place near where you live. Also, there is a facebook site called Grieving Mothers. It is closed so your privacy is protected. There are over 5,000 of us grieving moms on this site....I'm so sorry you are in this awful club. I wouldn't wish it on anyone...

Rest in Peace

Anthony was a great man. I remember all those times we use to hang out and play basketball as kids. I remember a few days before he passed away I asked if he believed in GOD. He said yes. I know he is in GODS hands now because he had faith. Grieving is the natural process we all go through especially when someone we love passes away. Have hope Cindy that when our time comes that we will all see each other again in Gods loving grace. The Bible assures us that. Temo told me about everyone coming together around town for the car washes to raise money for the funeral, and of course I will be helping in any way possible. He was a great friend. You are not alone Cindy everyone in Alviso mourns your loss. You and your entire family are in our prayers.

Died 6-2-011. He was 31 from an overdose of heroin. He left behind 2 girls. I am now responsible for them. He was my only child. I am sorry for your loss. A mother's loss is somehow different than other losses, but certainly not any less.
