Remember Eric

I lost my bestfriend , boyfriend to an overdose this year. He did not use fentynal regularly . It was just one day he decided he was going to try it. I knew nothing about it. He said he was going home and taking a nap. That was the last time I heard from him. I blew his phone up I told him I was on my way home . He never answered . He was always home to be there to unlock the door for me. Lights on car still in drive way. He never opened the door . I lost him to fentanyl January 14th 2022 . I called the ems but it was too late he was gone. He was bright , always working always wanting to make money. He would drink here and there. He was a good kid !!! Only 22 …. We just celebrated our birthdays October of last year … who knew that would be his last birthday … Eric you were a great guy!! You helped out everybody you could. Breaks my heart you were taken from us so early . You had everything good going for yourself & you would never let me go without . We love you Eric . May your pain be gone & god watch over us. I will always remember how great of a person you were. Forever 22 💙
