We simply ask that you remember that individuals in torment are someone’s family and a child of GOD. Offer a gentle smile, a warm hello, or a loving act of kindness to our walking wounded. The demons of addiction/mental health are powerful and last night those forces defeated a once kind and gentle soul. Our little finger sucker, oldies singing, joke cracking, loving baby boy is gone forever. Give more hugs. Say "I love you!" Count your blessing every day. Peace, love and happiness.
