    My precious only son, Dylan also died from this horrible drug on 5/5/07 at 20. I am still in denial, I believe because he lives forever in my heart. I prayed for so long that some girl would come along and tell me she had his child, so that I would have a piece of him. I still wish that would happen, but realize now enough time has elapsed that it is highly unlikely. Have hope that Katrinas’ Genesis will be your Genesis….a new beginning in a new world without your precious daughter. Someday we will all no the answers why, but until then we must be there for one another. I have taken over the Compassionate Friends group in our area. It has been a great aide to those like us who are experiencign this horrible fate of losing a child. Try to find a CF group in your area. For now, go to the CF Nat’l sight on Facebook. It is wonderful. Peace be with you and may eternal light shine on our angels souls in heaven until we meet again…..
