Even more so we hope that anyone out there currently struggling will reach out. Help is out there. No matter what you are doing today, if you are still alive there is hope of a better tomorrow. Addiction effects the entire family, and our entire community. In the loss of Gary it is also important to remember that although addiction ultimately claimed his life, he was so much more, a man that lived, laughed, smiled and loved spending time with his family.
