Richie

I lost my grandson who was more like a son to an overdose of fentanyl & heroin. Richie was 32 & living with us. He had been sober for 43 days & life for us all was finally a joy & full of hope. But Richie had intense anxiety & he was about to go back to work after three months of recovery. This anxiety caused him to fall back on the drugs not to get high, he wasn’t high when he passed, but to help him calm down with this pressure. I failed to give him the out that he needed & when I found him in his room I could not save him with naloxone or cpr. Now after 500 days I still miss him & beg him for his forgiveness for not shielding him from pain & keeping him out of harm’s way. I miss my BBF so much he hurts so bad.
