They left us, but they did not intend for us to die with them or they would have killed us too. This blog will serve as a reminder why we must not die with them, even though we feel like breaking into a million pieces every single second and between seconds.
My name is Angela Mantia. This blog is to serve for others as a place for refuge and education. This blog is a refuge for me to work through my own grief. My son, Shepherd Mantia, was 3 days shy of his 17th birthday when he took his own life on October 19, 2015.
