Dr. Jen - Of course I would be happy and priviliedged to speak with your friend who also lost a son to drowning. I like the concept of speaking mom to mom. Just let me know when. Out of curiosity: where is the place you mentioned that you teach learn to swim? In what body of water? As always - I wish you peace & love - Josh's mom.....wanda jean
