Reggie Whitten shows pictures of his son to strangers.He tells them stories about him, too. How he was such a happy boy with these big brown eyes and this ever-present smile. How he became an All-American kid in high school, a football standout and the homecoming king. How he planned to go to law school, then come home and practice alongside his dad.
But he also tells them stories about how his oldest son, Brandon, started mixing pain killers and alcohol. How he became a different person when the drugs changed his brain chemistry. How he died.
