Pain & Suffering

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

I went to a friend’s son’s funeral yesterday. His son passed away at the young age of 25 years. It’s very sad, as well as the pain and suffering he and the whole family have endured with struggling with his addictions. I know both the Fresh Start Recovery Centre and the Canadian Mental Health Association were both very helpful in his journey, but sometimes even these great resources aren’t enough.
