Egor Was A Bright, But Troubled Boy There Was No Warning
Did you see it coming? You must have noticed something. How can you not know your child was suffering? These were just some of the questions that we faced after our son’s suicide. My wife and I were always at a loss for words. Our son was a gem – always prioritizing work, a brilliant student and was always on top of things.
That illusion shattered into a million pieces when I opened the garage door and saw my son dangling from the ceiling. After his death, my wife and I found out he was taking anti depressants that were prescribed by a local clinic. This was a shocker, but what was abhorrent was the sheer lack of responsibility they took.
Tragedy Strikes Without Warning
No parent should have to bury their child. ‘My Name is Dad’ is a heartbreaking story of loss about a family who lost their son and had to force themselves to move on after he was gone. Learn how we coped with the loss, moved into a new home in a new state and chose kindness to honor his legacy.
What Our Readers Are Saying Now if we did not convince you, maybe a few words from our customers will!
“I lost my daughter in an accident and not a day goes by that I don’t blame myself even though I know there was nothing I could have done to prevent it. Life had become numb and meaningless. At the lowest point in my life, this book gave me hope. Like Egor’s parents, I am working to set up a charity in my daughter, Tiffany’s name that helps grieving parents come to terms with their loss.”
“Suicide happened to other people in my world but after reading this book, I ran to my son’s room crying and gave him a huge hug and told him he could talk to me about anything. Don’t take your kids for granted even if they seem content and happy. Depression is a ticking time bomb and the family left behind is the one to grieve.”
“You never know how much your child is hurting even if you are the most loving parent in the world. My daughter lost her best friend to suicide and it took months for her to recover from the loss. She has read My Name is Dad countless times and it made her make sense of the tragedy and gain the closure she needed.”
“No parent should have to bury their child. My Samuel was a fun-loving and extremely affectionate boy. He was quite popular in school as well and a good student. What we didn’t know was that he was getting bullied online. My darling boy took his own life because he believed their lies and taunts. My Name is Dad helped me and my husband come to terms with our grief. While the pain and regret will never truly go away, we have started moving forward bit by bit. It’s what Samuel would have wanted.”
