In memory of Dale Louchart

Created by Family Of Dale Louchart

Dale Louchart

My cousin died on January 12, 2008 at the age of twenty. He was my best friend. We were together everyday from a young age up until we wee about fifteen and sixteen.
Heroin was not what killed my cousin. However, if not for his addiction to heroin he would be standing well near me today.
Due to his heroin use, my cousin made some very bad moves in his life. Some of the things that he did landed him in jail. While he was in jail he caught some kind of infection that he died from.
We still have not found out what it was exactly that infected him. But, I believe with every piece of me that I can blame it all on the heroin he was so addicted too.
I would really like to spread his story out to others. He did not die from the drugs, but from the choices he made because he was using drugs.

I never knew you, but I also never knew that Heroin could kill someone so fast. I hope your life was great and I wanted to let you know that God is waiting for you in heaven. May this not happen to anyone anymore. It wasn't your fault.
