January 2011: From Grief to Gratitude
From the January 2011 Grapevine Magazine
On Sunday, Nov. 13, 2004, a U.S. Coastguard representative stopped in front of my house at exactly 11:10 a.m., bringing me the horrific news that my son had died in a diving exercise on Oahu, Hawaii.
You cannot believe how quickly our family found itself in turmoil. The disbelief, sorrow, anger and self-pity were unimaginable. Since I had been in AA and had been sober for 10 years, I found myself clinging with all my might to everything AA had to offer.
