Keep Noah’s Law in the forefront so we don’t lose more child lives

Thank you so much for your article concerning the support of Noah’s Law on Wednesday, March 9, 2016.

We need to talk about this and make people as much aware of this as we can. The death of a child or grandchild could happen to anyone. Minors and many adults do not realize the real danger of caffeine products. One life is too many and there have been several.

Thankfully, we have had several cities and counties to support this and pass the law locally within the counties/cities. We need full support to try to get this passed to try to help us help others and possibly prevent this happening to other families. I can assure you this is a pain and heartache no one ever wants to experience. 

The worst day of my entire life was when my friend and I found my grandson on the ground and he had already passed away. She tried and tried to revive him while we were waiting on the ambulance. It was to no avail because he was already gone. I hope you have never experienced this, but, if you have, you will know what it feels like.

That picture is in your mind constantly. You cannot sleep, it is there; you cannot be awake, it is there; you cannot do anything, it is there. All I see is that picture. The entire family is going through a terrific heartache that cannot be explained. This was his father’s only child and my only grandchild, but it doesn’t matter, you cannot replace a child.

Please support this law. Call senators; email them; call the lieutenant governor who is against it; email him. Share this. Do anything you can to help.
