   in the memory of Eddie Bisch.



          Our son, Andrew, died on September 26, 2002 from an OxyContin overdose.  It has been a little over a year since his death and our family has been imploded and we will never be the same.  Every day is Hell!
          Andrew was twenty years old, one month from his 21st birthday, and a junior at Saint Michael's College in the Burlington, Vermont area.  Everything in his life seemed wonderful...He had a lot of friends, was very popular, had no financial worries since we paid for his College, and he was planning on going to Italy for his Spring semester since he had just completed his second language course in Italian.  He had so much to "live for" and to "give to this world" and now he is gone.
          We are a very close and loving family.  Andrew brought us so much joy with his sense of humor and stability and caring.  We did things together and spoke all the time.  The night before he died he called us and said he had just finished his homework and was going out for a little while with some friends.  My wife and I both spoke to him and told him we loved him and he told us he loved us and we were always so good to him.  Everything was fine and we were so proud of him and "Happy." 
          Then that horrible dreadful day happened that every parent fears.  A state policeman came to our home that morning and told us our son was dead from an apparent drug overdose.  We said no, no, this can't be, you have the wrong person, the wrong house!  This has to be a mistake.  It has been a living hell for us since that day.  The friends who were with him that night (and they come from supposedly successful and good families) are reluctant to talk to us.  Nobody wants to get involved...We know they were involved, had impaired judgment, and they could have saved his life.  I could go on and on with what we have learned about how this happened to our son, and how it can happen to anyone.
          There is a prescription drug abuse epidemic in our High Schools and on College campuses across America, and most people are unaware of it until it effects their family.
          Purdue Pharma's OxyContin is a deadly drug that is easily accessible to our high school and college children, because of its mislabeling as a moderate pain killer.  Many doctors and dentist who have little understanding of how deadly and addictive OxyContin is are prescribing it so readily to their patients for moderate pain relief.  These pills are finding their way to our children as a social/recreational drug.  OxyContin needs to be strictly controlled and monitored for use only for very severe pain so it cannot find its way so easily to the street.
                                        "We can't let Purdue Pharma's OxyContin continue to kill our children!!!!!!"
                                                                                   THE WAKE LEFT BEHIND!
