When a son dies of hazing: Edie Heideman (opinion)

Here is a powerful column by writer and editor David Little.

It has this powerful quotation from Mrs. Heideman:

“Adrian was my only son and he was the light of my life. … When he was diagnosed with cancer, I vowed to give up everything so that my child could live. And he grew up to be tall and strong and handsome and brilliant. And then he died. Living without him is painful, every day. … It aches and aches and aches, and the hurt never goes away.”
