My Tribute: Seven years gone by and not a day has passed that I don’t think about you and my question of “why” is never fully answered. You had such amazing talent and I look at the artwork from your time in rehab with the plea of “God, please take away my need for heroin…” and that is the only answer that gives me some comfort. Your disease hit your hard and the struggles here on earth seemed unbearble to you.
As you told me a week before your overdose, “Mom, some of us need to die in order that other addicts live.” How profound and I am trying to be your venue to help others.
