it's over

The funeral was a sad affair, and their two boys looked worn out. It was an hour and 1/2 and was way to short for someones life. We went over to their house after the funeral and it was just me, my wife and my 3 boys with her and the two boys. We talked of how things could have been different if we only had 8 hours more. He would have been in detox at the hospital and on his way to recovery. But today is the last day he will be remembered like he was at the funeral. There is no coming back and people begin to forget about you. That is sad to me, but if I drink it will happen to me. I want to live today, because I am sober.

That is really sad and unfortunate for all of thesurvivors.
But for you, and us through you, it is another reminder why we must continue to do the things we do to remain alcohol and drug-free.
Thanks and God (as you understand Him) bless.
