" #lostmy17yrOldSonToSuicidein2022," O'Connor wrote in reply. The message was accompanied by a photo of O'Connor embracing her Shane.

"Been living as undead night creature since," she continued.

"He was the love of my life, the lamp of my soul. We were one soul in two halves. He was the only person who ever loved me unconditionally. I am lost in the bardo without him."
