I'm really glad I found this site today because my son would have turned 29 today had he not died of an overdose 3 years ago. I am alone tonight except for you all. I made a potato salad today to share with the Compassionate Friends group I go to every 3rd friday here in town for the bereaved. I am going to read the last poem I wrote to Jacob and wear a Pink Floyd shirt and a Raiders Hat I bought that he always wore to celebrate his life. I know he is in heaven but these things make me feel closer to him. Compassionate Friends is an awesome group for grievers where you can really talk about the pain and the way it is. They are right there for you and I love their news letters. I have cried alot of tears and done alot of writing and it seems to have done me alot of good. I miss my Jacob but I am not alone. Hugs to all.

After teasing the cooks, he would go harrass the little ones, tickle them and sniff their ears thinking...
