total hearts received for Moments That Survive

Ruby Millner

My son’s name is Rasaan Lee Millner. He was 33 years old. Lived December 24, 1980 to May 5, 2014. It was a Tuesday when I got the call at 3 p.m. that he was dead. I was in total shock. I could not believe the words that were coming from the other end of the phone that my son was dead—my only son.

It has been a long journey to get to where I am at now: I have learned how to accept my son’s death and still be able to live a productive life. I am in therapy for PTSD, and it has been helping a lot. With the help of my two daughters, that is my backbone.
Thank you.
