Keven found out someone in his program died recently. For once it was not heroin related. He was a man in his 40's who we all knew well. He seemed like he really wanted sobriety, but just couldn't do it. Every time I saw him in court the judge would lecture him about not drinking because of his diabetes.
The last time I saw him in court, she pleaded with him "you are going to DIE if you don't take care of yourself!". And she was right.
I am sharing this because it reminds me that we can warn someone but if they don't take matters into their own hands, warnings don't help. This man had a family who loved him. Its sad.
Peace, Hope and Love, Barbara
