Richard, my oldest, is visiting from LA. So glad to have my boy home on a visit and hard having my only child all the way across country. Andy went crazy seeing him. Just like he did last week when Charles’ friends came.
Got a lot planned. Looks like the river activities won’t happen due to it being very high right now. So we’ll hike and look at it instead.
Family time! Missing the youngest member of our family.
What Richard said after his brother’s suicide

I am an emotionally naked mental health speaker, and author of the Book, Diary of a Broken Mind and co-author with Kim O'Brien PhD, LICSW of Emotionally Naked: A Teacher's Guide to Preventing Suicide and Recognizing Students at Risk. I raised two boys, Richard and Charles, and lost my younger son, Charles to addiction and suicide on June 5, 2015. I help people foster a culture of connection to prevent suicide, reduce substance misuse and find life after loss. My motivational mental health keynotes, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, anxiety, coping strategies/resilience, 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.
