Friends lost their difficult child son last night. I'm simply beside myself - it's the same old story, gfgness, mental illness, substance abuse, and the parents finally having to take a stand and say "not in our home". My heart is just broken for them. If you could hold this family close in your thoughts, I'd appreciate it. They're such *good* decent people, and they tried so very hard to get their son on a better path. It's such a staggering loss, so pointless.
