    RE: My Son-in-Law that Died

    Hi there,
    Thanks for the messages that you all have posted. My son in law did not commit suicide. This was an accidental drug overdose that killed him. I do know that he should have known better than to mix so many different meds together and from what I also know that night he did drink some alcohol drinks. Not sure exactly what though.

    It is still very upsetting for my daughter to go thru this since it is a constant reminder since it was the day after her 40th b'day that he was found.

    She has found a grief support group but that was where she used to live. Now she lives in another city and has not found a grief support group there. I do hope that she will find someone to talk to or find a group.

    I hope that this clears a few things up. Perhaps he meant to end his life, but I don't know.

    God Bless Both of You, 77grace
