In memory of Robert V.

Created by Family Of Robert V.

Robert V.

Drug this person used or died from: Cocaine

My uncle Robert was a very lonely and depressed person. He got married at a young age because his girlfriend was pregnant and they were together on and off for 12 years. Due to his drug habit, it was hard for him to hold a job, so they lived with different family members. His wife always spoke badly about him and to him. She made him feel like he was worthless. They had three children: one was 11, the middle child was 5, and with the youngest one just 2 months old when he died. My oldest cousin, who was 11 at the time, found my uncle in the bathroom on the floor dead. He loved his children and he was a great father, but he had many problems that he thought only drugs could get him through. The saddest part, as I looked at him in his casket the day of his funeral, is that he finally looked like he had found some peace.

My advice out there to anyone who is depressed and thinks there is no hope, is to just remember that you do have people who love you, and that there is always someone who will listen.

You were a great person, and I miss. I loved you very much. You were never alone; we all love you and wish you were still here. I hope you found the peace that you were looking for.

I love you, Robert
