Sons death from an enabling parent.
I buried my oldest step-son one month ago. He actually died from a drug overdose, but his mother and step father enabled him by giving him a place to live rent free, food and a vehicle to drive therefore allowing him to have money to buy drugs. They said they did it because they loved him and couldn't let him live out on the streets.
They thought my husband (his dad) and I were horrible because we wouldn't help him financially. He lost his house because he got into debt so far that he couldn't make his house payment and we wouldn't help him. He had to sell his car to get money to move 1000 miles away to his mothers home.
My husband and I begged them to make him accountable, but they wouldn't. We offered to pay for rehab, but he wouldn't go. It's not easy to walk away from your child and not help them when you know that's what you really want to do. But I encourage and beg you to have the strength to do just that so that you don't have to face buring your child too.
