sad call from DS
Tuesday, January 28, 2020
good morning - I got a call from my DS around 9:30 pm last night. He asked me to babysit his daughter so he could go to his best man's funeral. This man was my son's BF but when my son joined the Army, they drifted apart. This man did not want my son to go into the Army. He was only 29 years old. DS said he died by heart attack. My son and I know this man. He had gotten into heavy alcohol drinking and drugs, since they went into separate directions. It is very sad. For my son to even want to go to a funeral is something b/c many of his battle buddies have died from battle or suicide. DH & I will be available to my DS to support him in his time of need. This man who is no longer here was a neighbor that my son has known since elementary days.
I have learned to not use food when I am sad. have a good day. I will.
