What can I say?


My 20 year-old son, Nathan Barrett Litton, died yesterday in our backyard swimming pool. He drowned for no apparent reason. He had been in the backyard alone for about 10 minutes and some friends came over and found him floating face down. He was pronounced dead late yesterday afternoon when paramedics couldn't revive him. I was in a car on my way to the airport in Spokane, Washington.

I got back to Houston at 6:30 this morning. Now I have to put together pictures for his memorial service that will be on Sunday. It's 3:30 am and I'm still wearing the same clothes I had on yesterday.

The earth is still spinning, I'm still breathing. But I will never be the same.

Oh Cas,

I am so sorry to hear this. My prayers and thoughts to your family. You don't look old enough to have a 20-year-old. I pray that your family will grieve properly and will never forget your son. Please keep us posted on yourself when you can - E :)
