Puppy love – #griefheart number 127

Puppy love
Puppy love

Eleven months ago  Chaney Corley who was only 13 was pronounced dead. It was a death by suicide overdose and she had been rushed to the hospital. I met her parents online after they read my article about honoring my son Charles who died by suicide. The article published in February of 2016 and their loss was still so raw.

I feel like I know Chaney now. In this picture, she is making a heart with her first boyfriend and they snapped a picture of it. This one in honor of her upcoming death anniversary next month because I can’t do much for her mom, Angel and Dad, Tony. But I can do this. I can honor Chaney’s struggle. I can honor her.
