He takes that moment every day to cleanse and remember. 

"They were really good boys, very solid, solid people -- tough as nails, physically, mentally. That just tells you about drug addiction. If it can take them, trust me, it can take anybody," he told FOX25Boston in 2009. 

When his sons died, they were cremated. Their ashes were spread in the ocean, so he returns there every day to visit them.
