Six months already

Six months have passed since my brother, Boo, passed away and I can hardly believe it. It seems like only a short time ago since that awful evening. Every time I remember that night its still so fresh just like yesterday. At the same time, I feel like I have been through a lifetimes amount of grief. I have dreamed about him twice since he passed and both times were disturbing since he seemed to be mad at me. Maybe its my own feelings of guilt because he overdosed on drugs and I will always feel…See More

One month..

Posted on November 1, 2013 at 7:24pm 2 Comments

Tomorrow, October 2, will be exactly one month since my brother, Jerald (Boo) passed away from an accidental drug overdose. I believe the semi-numb haze of shock the past month is starting to wear off. Although I am more in control of my outer emotions, the pain is growing worse because I am starting to realize that I am NEVER going to see my brother again. I am never going to hear his voice again, or drive past his house and see him mowing his lawn, or anything else that I took for granted…

Jen, Thank you so much for sharing. My brother Billy also died of a accidental overdose in the bathroom. He struggled for many years with addition. He was only 42. I never thought I would be writing his eulogy. I was honored in a strange way. And yet I told many people the truth thru it.And was able to express his heart and who he really was before the addition took control of his life. I have gone to the international overdose awareness day that they have every Aug 31st. This is international! Thanks again Jen. I do know both of our brothers are at peace now.
