Keaton Bendel

Forever 25

My son has a beautiful little boy whom he loved more than anything and a Fiancé which he would be marrying this year on October 3, 2020. On January 17, 2020, he purchased what he thought was cocaine. It was discovered in the toxicity report that there was no cocaine in his system. It was pure fentanyl!!! Instead of continuing with wedding planning, we had to plan a funeral. Never in my wildest dreams did I think this would ever happen. Never did I think my son would be gone at 25 years old. Never did I think my grandson would have to grow up without his daddy. Never did I think I would have to go on with my life without one of my children in it. No one should ever have to bury their child. Yet, I had to. I will continue to bring awareness so that I can prevent even one person from trusting a drug dealer with their life!! Forever 25 Keaton’s Mom
