Victor Orlando Woolson had only just turned 19 when he drowned in Lake Ontario in Oswego, NY. He was a great, smart, funny, witty child. He graduated High School with an Advanced Regents Diploma and was about to start his second year of college. He lived at home.
He was struggling to overcome a recent addiction to synthetics/bath salts (which were legal up until just before he died). He found out that one store in our area was still selling them, purchased Avalanche in a store, smoked and went swimming and had a fatal reaction. Yes, the Avalanche was banned by the Health Department, the Federal Government and the State Government. Yes, the store is still open. Yes, I got it raided and got the strictest laws possible at a County level passed.
I attend a 13-week 'GriefShare' group at The Vineyard Church and it has helped tremendously. I'm looking for more groups, online or locally. I'm working on some memorial things I can do in my son's name. I have grandchildren who are a godsend and I have renewed my love for Jesus and brought him to the front burner of my life and am seeking a local church. The Vineyard is wonderful, but a one-hour drive from my home!
That's all for today.
