Galen Call

Our oldest son Weston passed from a sudden and most unexpected seizure on August 12, 2018. He was otherwise a very healthy, happy, gregarious, 32-year-old, successfully running his own business in Big Sur, California. He had big plans for the future! Despair, a massively broken heart and the overwhelm of grief led me to seek hope and new solutions to living. Through reading endlessly, I discovered that suffering is optional grief is not and because I continued to open doors, I found Helping Parents Heal. COVID-19 closed the window to life as we knew it, yet again. However, thanks to the supportive environment of HPH and countless zoom presentations enjoyed in the comfort of my home, my spiritual grounding began to evolve, one day at a time, slowly adjusting, ever evolving bringing peace, belief and trust in extraordinary ways. I am so grateful. I know Weston is with us, right here right now! In honor of his legacy, a fund was created to support non-profits in the town he cherished. More can be read at

My name is Michelle Hamilton. I am a mother to a beautiful 19-year-old young man who lost his life to a fentanyl poisoning. Tyler is my only child. Upon losing Tyler, I felt that I lost myself along with him. I remember the morning of his passing and looking at the sky and thinking how vast it was. I thought, “Where are you?”. I needed to know where he was and that he was okay. I immediately immersed myself into grief groups, fentanyl awareness groups, afterlife articles, etc. Finally, I stumbled upon Helping Parents Heal. I am so grateful that I did. I now know that this was no coincidence nor was it a mistake. I feel that my son led me here. I feel my son near me every single day. This has saved my sanity and restored my hope.
