Heart full of tears

“You’re my mom, the only one I’ll ever have, I’m sorry I was bad, all the tears I could sit in a bath” –From “Forgive Me Momma” by Charles Aubrey Rogers

In the last 14 months, I’ve cried enough tears to make a bath. Tears for my child Charles who died by suicide. Those words were meant to illustrate his pain but they ironically ended up describing mine.

I raised two boys, Richard and Charles, and lost my youngest son, Charles to substance use disorder and suicide June 5, 2015. I help people foster a culture of connection to prevent suicide, reduce substance misuse and find life after loss. My motivational, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, and grief. 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. Professional Speaker Website. Trained in ASIST and trainer for the evidence-based 4-hour training for everyone called safeTALK.
