Family Love – #griefheart number 7

#griefheart and grieving heart
Family Love

For months, I have mourned not having this song, “Family Matters.” Charles wanted to record that rap song and publish it to iTunes through Imperial Alliance Media, but he died before that happened. I believe he wrote this one about 10 months before he died. So I pick up his backpack and turn to a page and there it is! I have been looking and looking. And it was here the whole time. What a gift.

Charles died by suicide June 5, 2015 and I think he wrote it in May of 2014 before he was addicted to anything. And I don’t think Charles had been addicted for much more than 6 or 7 months before he died but I don’t know for sure.

I will publish the song on this blog. It takes a while to type them up and get them right. It’s a good one, a love letter to family.

By the way, the heart is origami. I’m not a pro but gave it a shot!

What is the #griefheart project?

I am the mother of two boys and the owner of emotionally naked, a site that reached a quarter million people in its first 18 months. I am a writer and professional public speaker on the topics of suicide, addiction, mental illness, and grief and currently working on getting a book published. I lost my youngest son, Charles, 20, to suicide June 5, 2015. As talented and funny as Charles was, letting other people know they matter was his greatest gift. And now the legacy I try and carry forward in my son's memory.
