Son, Father, Brother, Huge heart

My son was a very bright guy with a charismatic personality. He struggled with addiction since he was very young though had many sober years, off and on. He was raising his daughter by himself for his last eight years. He got an infection in his back that the hospital didn't diagnose until it covered 70% of his spine. Long story short, he relapsed and overdosed. The hospital only gave him two doses of Naloxone, which wasn't nearly enough. My precious son passed away of a fentanyl overdose. He loved riding motorcycles, fishing, playing guitar...most of all he loved his daughter who is now 12 years old. My son was a welder and loved it. Thank you for allowing me to share a bit of his story 💔❤💔
