    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.

    Oh how awful. We had a neighbor who found their son on Christmas morning, just on their front porch. Not only is it the worst nightmare, but every Christmas they will relive it. My heart aches for them.

    Beads rattling from here too. This is something we all fear. I hope the parents can find comfort down the line that they had done all they could. Sometimes tragedies happen in good families, sounds like one of them. :(
