  1. I miss her. Her and I, were pretty close. We had major ups and downs through out our friendship because of her addiction, but when she wasn’t on that stuff, she was happy and a beautiful soul to be around. Rest in peace Elizabeth!

  2. Your Granddaughter was a beautiful young woman. She died way too soon. I’m so sorry. I’m addicted to narcotics and will be until there’s a cure for me. I have hope. Every time my narcan expires I get more because Worker’s Compensation has to pay for it because I’m on narcotics, but I bring it everywhere with me hoping one day, just one day my narcan can make a difference and then I can by staying at the hospital with them for a little bit to talk. I was always in the helping field until I became permanently disabled. I knew Anne’s son. Charles was great and the work Anne is doing is amazing. It took a lot of courage to write your story. Dealing with mental illness is hard as a parent and as a child. I’m sorry your journey ended this way, but speaking up and telling your story is what we need. We’re looking at a big monster in the war on drugs. I’m calling it a war because it’s no longer a crisis when so many people like your daughter are dying. There’s way too many drugs being made, brought in to this country, and sold illegally. I know arrests are being made, but there’s so many others ready to take their place. A wall certainly isn’t going to stop it all. It’s a start, but then where. You see neither side has the answer. I am frustrated. I’m frustrated Charles passed away and your daughter or granddaughter (I’m sorry) passed away too. Then there’s so many others. There were at least 43 confirmed by the FDA that decided to take their lives due to being forced to be weaned off their needed medication for a medical condition. That was just the ones that they confirmed. I was forced to wean down on my medication to. The CDC apologized and said it wasn’t meant for chronic pain conditions. Others turned to the street or Anne I don’t know if you read all comments or not, but they sell it in cigarette shops and it’s called kratom. It works on opiate receptors in the brain too, but isn’t against the law yet. I didn’t go to street drugs or kratom. I’m sorry I went off topic.

  3. Oh my Dear Betty , your Grandaughter was so Beautiful. Your story broke my Heart. She is at peace now, no more pain. I Dam the demons that stole your Grandaughter. I’m so very sorry 🙏 RIP Elizabeth💫✨💫

    1. Thank you. I can’t imagine that so close to Christmas. Holidays are the worst. Someone is always missing.

  4. Dear Betty, that is so upsetting and I am so sorry you and her family have had to feel that pain. We had a very similar situation with my son, and he was only 25 and was beautiful as well. He was depressed and took his life alone in an apartment in New York. He was scheduled to come home for Christmas and then we were going up to help him with his apartment after the holidays. We sent his cousin to check on him and they found him with detectives. It was 7 years ago.
    I think of your daughter and you, and hope that you both have had good support as you have found your way forward without beautiful Elizabeth.
