The day ended well!

So late Saturday night look who I picked up from the airport. Richard flew in from LA to spend a week with family. I don’t think I will ever be used to him living 3k miles away. Good lord I miss my son. An only son, now.

Back in eighth grade I knew he’d move to LA. He was so into film then. I remember thinking, “How will I live with him way out there on the west coast?”

I knew how much Charles loved Richmond. At least he’d be close by.

I’m going to enjoy my week with my oldest boy.

What Richard said after his brother’s suicide

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.
