  • LETTER:Spare families from the heartbreak of alcohol

    I am a mother with a broken heart. My only child (a son), whom I adored, became a victim of alcohol abuse at the age of 36 when he took his own life.

    Bryan was a bright, intelligent boy, was a talented artist, his heart was filled with love and compassion and he had a wonderful sense of humor. Bryan was raised in church, he made a profession of faith at the age of seven and he attended the church’s Awana club where he achieved earning a Timothy trophy. What a bright, wonderful future this miracle from God had before him.
