    I did not know Emily,I am so sorry for your lost. I agree with Toni Shafer, I'm sure it was hard for you to tell this, if only more people would admit it, so many young people are on drugs and believe me I hate that word.  God bless you and the children.

    Prayers for your family and your loss. Praise for your honesty. So many families are experiencing the same but don't have the courage or maybe honesty to be candid about the cause of death. I have lost several people I love to the same cause. Awareness is the only hope to make a difference. God bless you all.
