Loss of a son is not something you ever get over


Re: A Warning, Delta Optimist July 23

I wanted to send my condolences to Mike Halpen and wife Linda on the loss of their son and to praise him for his efforts to help others who are struggling with mental health issues by establishing a Delta Community Group.

We, too, lost a son over 20 years ago in an accident. It is not something you ever get over, but in time you learn to live with it.   

It is indeed important for us to remember that all lives matter and to do whatever we can to help others.
