After 10 + years watching u battle Heroin you Beat Heroin yet overdosed on Methadone (silent killer). You were not prescribed Methadone & somehow were able to buy off the streets which Murdered you. Whoever sold it to you is still making money off their next victims. Now I have to keep my head clear of depression to fight the demon that reminds me how you died? I’m not sure how to do that? But with God’s help all things are possible. I know you’re at peace. Amen
