Patrick was my cousin. He was always the jokester and the one who was always getting in trouble for mischief as a kid. He had such a big heart for family and loved his wife and family dearly. He never got the chance to be a father and that breaks my heart everyday. I tried to get help because I've been there and go through staying sober daily. Sometimes hourly. He was my family and because of a knee injury 10 years ago, he became addicted to opiates. He tried getting help at a clinic but was still using.
