In memory of Brian Richter

Created by Family Of Brian Richter

Brian Richter

My son has lost his life at 23 years old due to an overdose of prescription drugs. My family and I will grieve for the rest of our lives. I am so upset that doctors are prescribing Methadone to their patients to break a drug addiction. This drug is so freely used and no one has a clue that it is deadly. The only thing they know is that they can make money off selling it as a recreational drug. It is disgusting people can get a prescription, then turn around and sell the medication for a profit. When are we going to stop these pain clinics from prescribing drugs for resale? I know the police have their hands tied, because the have a prescription for such drugs as Xanax, Methadone, Valium, Oxycontin, and the list goes on. How many more children are we going to lose? Why is the same circle of people making a living off selling the drugs to our children? Why are these people not going to jail or drug rehab and why are these doctors having the right to murder by prescription? Patricia Levine

Brian is my son, I hate that we all had to loose him this way. He had so much to live for. Brain did not do this on purpose he made a mistake. We can blame each other or blame ourselves. Brain would have wanted us to to learn from his mistakes and raise the rest of our famailies. Brain loved kids and did not get the chance to have any of his own, but if he would have they would have been hell raisers too.

Patricia, I cannot say anything to make a difference right now. What can one say in the face of a child's death? I know there were no words of great comfort for me, for a long time. But I am so sorry. So very sorry you have lost Brian. The death of a child leaves us speechless. Our beautiful children...they will never be forgotten. We as parents insure this. May you find Peace. I wish you Peace.

Patricia first I want to tell you I am sorry for your loss. I do truly feel your pain. I lost my son Jason to heroin on 3-5-2008. His addiction started with perscription drugs not perscribed to him. I personally blame the pharmaceutical companys and or the government. The pharmaceutical co. give the government big money to let them do what they want to do.Again I am sorry you lost your son. God's peace be with you.

Dear Brian's family, I am truly sorry for your loss. I lost my son yesterday, 4 years ago, much the same way. The Drug - Crime Force looking into my son's case was just overwhelmend with work, but just kept working day and night. These people are so very dedicated and earned my respect. They are keeping up the good fight for all of us. I agree with you, why do the addicts get to leave with drugs to sell on the streets to our children? Brian is in a much better place.
