Today I Buried My Son

The Loss of a Son to Oxycontin

Those words "Today, I buried my son" is something no parent should ever have to say. Today I was going through photographs and came across a photo of me in an airplane, on my way to bury my son. I looked so bewildered and confused. I remember it being so surreal at the time.

As odd as it seems, strangers have given me the most comfort. And they don't say stupid things like, he is in a better place, you are lucky to have another son, etc.
