John was a caring guy and he always got along with everyone. He was always worried about how everybody else was doing, but not himself -- that's the kind of guy he was. He would do anything for you. He loved weightlifting, which showed because he was a big guy. John was in and out of prison his whole life and he kept going back because of a bad problem with heroin. It was rough for him, but he dealtwith it.He just could not stop using it -- it was just too hard. I know how hard it can be, because I used it too. The last time he was released from prison he went right back to it, but this time it killed him.He got some heroin that was laced with Fentanyl. Now he's gone and the only thing I can do, as his brother, is keep his memory alive -- and I will do that. WE WILL MISS YOU FOREVER.
