Forever 33

Just 7 days out of prison, we lost my brother. After 22 months in prison, and almost a year of that during the pandemic, where they spent most of their time (23 hours a day) on lockdown, suddenly thrown back into society. December 27th we celebrated our dad and my daughters bdays, he was smiling, enjoying family and we had the best day. December 28th at 1130 am, on our dad’s bday and my daughters 16th bday our dad found my brother deceased. Fentanyl, heroin, cocaine, xylazine intoxication. We need to normalize the difference in overdose deaths and drug induced homicide. My life will never be the same.
