I've been closely following the blog of Katie Allison Granju since she began writing about her teen son Henry's traumatic injuries after a drug overdose and a severe drug-deal-gone-wrong physical assault.

As a reader on the outside and a recovering alcoholic myself, I worried openly about the addiction angle of Henry's story. Once recovered from his physical injuries, would he make it past his drug addiction? However, his physical injuries appeared unrelenting, and I saw that Henry was struggling over the weekend. And then I got behind on my reading for a few days.

Today, I burst into tears when I read that Henry passed away Monday due to complications from his injuries. Please send your thoughts and prayers out into the universe for Katie and her family.

What a sad ending here for this beautiful boy. My deepest condolences go out to Katie and her family.
