    Today is International Over Dose awareness day. Last year Linda and I got the worst news ever that our Loving Grand Daughter Amanda died from an Over Dose. She was 27 years old. In her Honor I would like to ask for Prayers for those lost and those that will be lost to this awful disease. 200 souls a day lose the fight against this disease. Please don't hate the addict...Hate the disease. We Love and miss you every day Amanda.

                    On May 30th of this year, I lost my youngest son to an accidental overdose. He had been "clean" for months, but after several setbacks in his life, he relapsed and overdosed. He was 32 and had a 12 year old son.

                    He was a good man, hard working and honest, and had many friends. He make a very bad decision and it hurt him.

                    A friend described what happened as a strong young man that was beaten by something stronger than him.

                    Last night, I attended a gathering of people that had lost loved ones to this epidemic. It was a large cross section of people from every social and economic background. I tell people that if it happened to us, it can happen to anyone.

                    I miss him.

                      Positive thoughts for all affected. Staggering numbers hidden by Big pharmaceutical companies.

                          My condolences to you for your loss. Amanda fought this addiction for several years. We sent her to many Rehabs but she would always gravitate to the friends that use.This time she got put in Jail for failure to appear and other issues and we all decided as a Family not to post bail ( very difficult decision ) She was in jail for 6 months and on the day they took her home they made the mistake of going back to work and leaving her alone.My Son-in -Law had a funny feeling and went back to check on her. She was already dead on the floor when he got to her. Not even the Narcan could save her. She had called and had delivered some Heroin within 10 minutes of her Parents leaving. Like you I will take every chance to try to educate those that say" They could quit if they want".

                          Thank you and I'm sorry for your loss.

                          For those out there, it seems like this is typically what happens. Someone is "clean" for months, sometimes years, and they go back and do it again. Problem is that their body can't take the amount that they did before for one thing... and there's something else that comes into play.... Fentanyl. Heroin and other drugs are being cut more and more with this very, very dangerous, cheaper and much more addictive drug.

                            Addiction is a terrible disease and it does not discriminate.It's only job is to kill you.
                            God Bless all who suffer from it directly and indirectly.
