On November 11, 2006 I married Jason John Large, my best friend, one true love and soulmate.
On November 4, 2009 our son was born.
On November 14, 2009 my beloved husband died. That night, before he fell asleep he said “Wake me up if you need anything. Promise?” He never woke.
It took 3 months for the autopsy results to come back. When they finally did I learned that the primary cause of death was methadone intoxication.
The disease of Alcoholism and addiction can steal anyone, even someone who has been sober for 5 years and is the happiest he has ever been. He left this world at the top of his game, and he left the rest of us in misery. While I have a million unanswerable questions, these are two things I am certain of: my husband loved me more than anything and he loved our son more than me.
In the midst of heartbreak I have glimpsed hope. I share my story hoping that my journey toward healing will inspire others. I live Large in honor of my husband and son, and for all of you who are loving me through this.
