I married my sons’ father 22 years ago today. I thought it would be a love to last a lifetime. We had two beautiful boys. Our first son, Sam, was born ten months after we were married. Nick was born the following year. A mother’s love to last a lifetime.
Sam died sixteen years later after being sold Acid that was really a synthetic drug called 25i-NBOMe. He left behind the love of his father and I and also of his younger brother, Nick, now a college sophomore.
What was once never-ending love of a beautiful baby boy is now intertwined with never-ending pain. Sam didn’t graduate high school. Sam didn’t go to college. Sam wasn’t here to celebrate his 21st birthday this year. Sam isn’t here today. #muchlovetosam
