In loving Memory Of A Son & Brother

May 24, 1984 – June 12, 2012

By Alice Grega Wolbert

August 31st 2017 was “Overdose Awareness Day” and I attended. a candle lighting ceremony to honor all who have lost their life, including my son. He was the light of my life and had a heart of gold. But his addiction took over and ripped our lives apart. We did everything we could to help him including Not helping- trying not to enable him. But I was unable to turn my back on him the way some people told me to. I knew my favorite guy was still there, he was still caring and funny and oh so kind. He quit many times in fact the last time was for almost a year. He was doing great. But for some reason he picked it up again on Father’s Day. Was it because he had lost his dear son when he was only 3 months? I'll never know. I planned on talking to him the next day when he was sober. But the next morning we found him and it was too late. I know there are other grieving Mom's and Dad's out there who have also lost their loved ones to this dreaded disease. My heart goes out to you. Let's end the stigma that comes with it. Let's not hide it any more. Our children lived, loved and were loved. More people need to come forward and show it can happen to anyone. Maybe it will save a life.

Addiction Hurts

From A Sister’s  Perspective

By Dana Wolbert

 

August 31st- “Overdose Awareness Day” is rough.  Addiction not only can ruin another person’s life but the families that are involved also. Addiction ruled my life. I hope people have the courage to not only save their own lives but to save their family from the pain. Losing my brother ripped my family apart.  Losing him changed my whole life. Addiction took my brother, addiction changed my life. He wrote to me saying, “I needed to believe in myself”.  I just wish he believed in himself, because I did - I believed in him, and I believe in anyone struggling with sobriety. I'm writing this to not only pay my brother some respect, but for anyone struggling with an addiction, there is hope, your life is worth living, and someone out there does believe in you- I do.
