One of our own has passed away
RIP LSUGuy13

quote:

For years, Bryan McLain would wake up in the middle of the night to check his phone for a missed call from an unknown number. He was certain, each night, the call would come that his son had overdosed.

In recent years, however, the Lafayette developer and restaurateur had fallen into a more comfortable sleep. His oldest child, Matthew McLain, seemed to have overcome addiction and had found new meaning in life through helping others with their recovery.

The dreaded overdose call didn't come while Bryan McLain slept. It didn't come during the darkest of Matthew McLain's days. It came in broad daylight on a Monday afternoon

re: One of our own has passed away
I was wondering when this thread would hit the OT

Matt started a sober living facility and affected the lives of many. It was pretty incredible reading the amount of posts on his facebook wall the day it happened from individuals and loved ones of individuals whom he helped. I wish this thread was about the good he did and not the deamons that came back to haunt him after being sober for so long.

You just helped do that.

I encourage others who knew him to do the same.

That's really sad. Prayers for the family.

Don't be selfish and get mixed up in drugs, people.
He leaves a family in this world without him abd that is sad.
Please don't even start. And if you have started, stop.

Not really. We became facebook friends after he bought some LSU tickets off me years ago and we ran into each other on a few road trips.Seems like he was a great dude when he was able to control the demons though.
