    I Lost My Son In Car Accident

    my son and his friend were killed instantly in a head-on car crash on Oct. 15, 2011.  My son was the driver, we think maybe he fell asleep at the wheel.  It hurts so bad and we miss him so much. I don't have much energy for anything, i am just heartbroken, he was only 23.
