Marie Osmond spoke to omg! Insider correspondent Michael Yo about the approaching anniversary of her 18-year-old son Michael's suicide.

"God gives you respites. Who do I lean on? I lean on God. I am a woman of great faith and I rely upon that, because I believe, I know I'll see my son again, and it's that kind of faith that gets you through the difficult dark moments." Michael took his life on February 26, 2010.

Osmond told Yo, "It never gets easy." Osmond continued, "Have I been through dark moments? Absolutely. Is it difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel? Sometimes it's very challenging, but I have great hope. If I were to say one thing that I would want to spread through this show and the things that I do is to give people hope. To let them know that we all go through it. To let them know that we all go through it." In honor of her son, all proceeds from her current inspirational album "I Can Do This," are going to Children's Miracle Network in her son's name.
