So sad. May his family and friends find love support and comfort in this most tragic of times for them. I lost my 20 year old son last October, and while the pain is still so strong, you learn to find joy slowly. The most powerful statement I had heard was " you must find a way to remember your loved one, without it ripping out your heart".

Charlotte, my nephew sadly died in a one vehicle accident a month before your son passed. It happened in Iberia Parish. My sister and his father decided to donate his tissues and bones. He helped other tremendously with his donations. But it is a bittersweet sitution as you stated on facebook. I want you to know I am so broken hearted for your family and your grief. My nephew was so like my son from another mother in my heart and was always with me but his mom's grief is off the charts and fresh like yours. Please keep in touch and write anytime. Until your post today I had no ideal that you beautiful smile was hiding such tremendous heartache. My sisterinlaw is our old schoolmate Cindy Rougeau. Her son Allen J Aucoin (another one of my nephews) was brutally murdered Jan. 9, 2010. Peace and love to you, Charlotte and you husband Nelsom.
