Amy Winehouse is the same age as my youngest son who got his BS in kinesiology a couple of years ago from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, California, one of the state's best colleges. He was also a decathlete there. He now works at as a strategic account manager at Maxim Integrated Products, a publicly traded company that designs, manufactures, and sells semiconductor products. He was raised, along with his two brothers, by me, a single mom, without child support.

I am so blessed in that none of my sons - the oldest is 40, the middle one will be 29 this month, ever did drugs or caused me any real grief.

I have nothing but the greatest sense of pride in these boys of mine.

What makes one's children die at the age of 27, especially someone like Amy Winesap who has such amazing talent, wealth and the adoration of thousands and thousands of fans.

I feel badly for her parents and her family. She must have been so tormented. May she now rest in peace.
