Wow! I was afraid this story would be too maudlin but she really made me celebrate her son's life in a way I hadn't expected. Ultimately, the ending is very sad and if you have children it will really cause you to pause. I thought it was a wonderful read and would definitely recommend it.

Facinating story about Gloria Vanderbilts sons death at the age of 23. The child who died was the older brother of Anderson Cooper, GVs youngest and famed newsman. A quick but powerful read, very personal and painful.
