My son was doing great...or so we thought. He had a good job that he never missed a day from. He was a single father and had all three of his children living with him. He was a truly great dad for his kids - being a father was, to him, his greatest accomplishment. He was found by his sister, dead of an overdose in bed. His children are ages 2, 3 and 5, and do not understand that their Daddy will not be coming home. My 5-year-old grandson has many questions for me, including asking me if his Daddy will be out of the ground next time we go to the cemetery so he can see him. This is a horrible tragedy that still does not seem real. I pray that this does not happen to another parent or another child.
