It has been 17 months since my son’s passing. At first I struggled daily, asking “Why? What if? Should have.” When Jer made his decision, he sent a text “Plz everyone forgive me.”It took me a while before I could do that. I have now accepted this was his choice. Do I like it? No. But I have forgiven him and with that I find comfort. I know my son is now free of his inner demons, and yes, I have made my peace with him and God.
