Thank you so much for your heartfelt, open, honest, loving memorial to your son and his disease. I lost my sister 15 years ago to the stuggle and I am battling myself right now. I think it is absolutely wonderful that you shared your experience, strength and hope with us and not tried to hide the family "secret". God bless your family and Em one day at a time.

Emerson and I had a very special and unique bond which was both spiritual and brotherly. May his loss remind us all that addictions can be stronger than human relationships. Fortunately, love is eternal, thus we have the hope of one day being reunited with Emerson and our Creator, where addictions will no longer plague us. May Emerson now rest in peace.
