My son died on February 18, 2017 just 4 days after his 24th birthday. He was addicted to heroin for 6 very long and awful years. Wrecked cars, jail sentences, hospital stays (all attached to ventilators), felonies, at least 15 rehabs, probation. During the last 3 weeks before he died, he was working and everyone was stunned at how well he was doing. I told him everyday how much I loved him and how very proud of him I was. He was paid on 2/17/17 and I found him dead the next day. Police found needles and heroin. I am beyond broken and miss him more than words can adequately say.
