In memory of my brother, Scoot

My brother Scoot passed away at an early age of 41 on October 7th 2019. He battled the drug demons for over 20 years and it took his life due to meth, heroin and fentanyl. I knew nothing about Black Balloon Day until today, March 6th 2020 when I saw a post from a friend on Facebook remembering a loved one.

It truly is a struggle but yet I somehow feel closer to my brother now that he is at peace. Some people are ashamed of their loved ones that pass away from a drug overdose but not me- I love my brother, always have and always will, and I want to help in the awareness of the drug epidemic.

Thoughts, prayers, peace and comfort to all of you!
