My two adult sons lost a very good friend of fifteen years to a Heroin Overdose, Kieth was his name and he died at the age of 26, that was a great loss, but now my Step Son Korey had just lost his best friend of fifteen years Shawn Kessel age 27 the same way and that too was an even greater loss because of Kieth. Sawn nonetheless was a bubbly ole chap that could make anyone's bad day a whole lot brighter just by his presence because he was always smiling and laughing, making jokes and he could just give you an uplift making a bad day turn into a good day. Such a waste of a life with such potential for a bright future. Shawn and Kieth had touched our lives, they became family and they will be greatly missed for the rest of our days. It is our greatest wish that a massive war be launched to get rid of this horrible drug and its dealers so that we don't lose anymore children. Thank you for this opportunity to express our sorrows.
