Worldwide Candle Memorial Wall Postings

Today is December 7th 2019. My son Jared Carpenter died 3 years ago today of a heroin overdose. I think of him every minute of every day. I don't like being a member of this club but I'm in it for the Long haul. He was such a great kid he was in soccer, hockey, he graduated and then he went to the doctor and got 19 warts removed from his hands and he was in terrible pain so he got pain pills and got hooked. You know the story the one where the doctor wouldn't give him any more pain pills so he turned to heroin. And then you know the rest of the story. My younger son is also an addict, but for the love of God, as far as I know, he is clean now. I miss my son Jared, my heart is broken, I wish the pain would go away. Honestly, I so look forward to the day I will see Jared again. May God bless you all. πŸ’”πŸ™πŸ’”πŸ™πŸ’”πŸ™πŸ˜’πŸ’”πŸ™πŸ˜’πŸ’”πŸ™
