    I got the dreaded knock on the door from APD Victim Services early today. He died from a drug overdose in an Austin motel room after battling addiction for the past couple of years. Less than three days out of a 30 day rehab program, he couldn't stay away from the dark side.

    He was only twenty four years old, but one of the best people that I have ever known. My best friend and my only child. He was my life and now I am lost without him.

    If you have kids no matter what age, give them a big hug and tell them you love them each and every day. I just wish I had one more hug and I love you to share with him.

    I miss you and love you son.

    Third Coast,

    I cannot begin to imagine the pain you are feeling. Surely there can be comfort in the knowledge that he is once again well and whole.

    My heart aches for you. You and your family will remain in my prayers.

    The Dark Side as you call it is patient and powerful. It waits on those of us who try to beat them. We all have our own demons; Brad's demons won. It does not make him less of a son or less of a man. I did not know Brad but in the 25 years that I have day by day been clean and sober, I have met a million Brads. I pray for him, as I do those million others, and for me. Quarter of a century and I am drink away from joining him. I have watched my Mother bury two children; Viet Nam and an anurism. Lifes cruelest act, a parent outliving a child. God Bless you and keep you. If it helps any at all, he is free from his own personal hell, his own prison, his own shame for disappointing you and those who have loved him. God Bless You.

    TC, I'll pray God wraps your son, your family and all touched by your son's loss, in the comforting mercy he promises those that seek him.
