In memory of Larry B.

Created by Family Of Larry B.

Larry B.

I write because there is no other place where Larry will be remembered. Larry lies in a pauper's grave in NYC. I got to know Larry as I sat out on my stoop talking to him about his life. At 55 he had been drinking heavily since he was 9 years old. He was homeless, sick, unable to get treatment, and felt that no one cared about him. Mostly he talked about how he wanted to die and had no hope that things could ever be different for him after existing this way for so long. He was hit by a car in the middle of 108th street late one night in April. I hope he has found peace. It broke my heart that he felt so hopeless as the disease of addiction often makes one feel.

This Memorial was created to commemorate a loved one's life and to let other families know they can turn to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids for help when struggling with their son or daughter's substance use. Please consider sharing this page to increase awareness of substance use disorders and to provide hope and healing for others.
