I put my story up 5 weeks after my son died of accidental overdose.

It has been 13 weeks now and I still can't believe he is gone. I wait for the phone to ring hoping it's him but I realize it can't be. My son was a very loving and sensitive person.

I think of him every day and miss him so much.
He left behind 2 children that he loved very much.
They meant the world to him. I know I can't bring my son back but I can keep his memory alive.

I'm sorry for all of you that have lost a loved one.

Mary, I'm sorry. I too, lost my son, named John, to an accidental heroin overdose on 1/3/11. He was my only son- I have 3 daughter now. We feared this might happen one day, but we were not prepared for the emptiness, and the sorrow. We too, are still in disbelief. While nothing can take away our pain, nothing can take away our memories of our sons either. My John was a funny, outgoing, handsome boy- he never married nor had children. Perhaps that might have eased out suffering, to see his child. However, it was not in the cards. My heart goes out to you, and to all of us. Heroin is a terrible drug, and what brought our sons to use it is beyond me. I'm sure it started out with smoking it- and escalated. So many parents have lost their kids to overdoses. I thought that this would never happen to me. Now I see, there's so many of us.
I wish you some peace and comfort, that our son's battles and struggles are over. Ours, unfortunately, have just begun.
Stay strong, as I will, and please take care of yourself.
With deep condolences from someone who cares,
John Joseph Di Lustro Travis 7/14/83- 1/3/11 RIP

I know your pain
by: Annie

I lost my beautiful 26-year-old daughter Nicole on April 2 of this year. Cause is still pending but we are fairly sure it was Percocet/Xanax. She left a 2 year old son. I feel like I am in a nightmare from which I can't wake up from.

So lost
by: Pamela Teter

I am so sorry for your loss. Today it will be two yaer today that my son died. And it has not got any easier. I try to think of all the times we laughed then I can see him smiling down on me and know he wants me to be happy. I don't want him to see me sad, so I smile and go on with my day. I know if I think of all the good times and his smile it make me feel better.

So sorry for your loss. Please if you need someone to talk to because I know I need to talk and have no one that under stands; you can write me and I will talk to you.
