Lifetime love

IMG_2747.jpg

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
