My son, VJ suicided on September 2, 2008. He was 16 years old. That day has touched and changed the lives of more people than VJ could have ever imagined. As his mom, I now live to make sure his memory is never forgotten. Acceptance of his death has given me the strength to spread the message about depression and suicide. This walk is my family and freinds time to verify VJ's death has purpose and our pain and suffering has turned into determination to remember VJ and teach others that suicide is not the answer....depression exists....and it is okay to talk about it and ask for help.
In loving memory or my son, VJ....
My heart forever broken.....VJ's spirit forever alive..... his mom, Heidi
