For years the photo on the page about me has been the one that is there.
Because of all of the negative debates and controversy, I will not be changing it out of respect and admiration for her talent, music and the joy it brought me.
I will not attempt to capitalize on blog hits by posting the name or even allowing it to be mentioned in a google search; but know this: if you have ever known someone with an addiction, mental illness or function hindrance, you have to know that at some point, they want to give up and let go. There is nothing we can do to make them stay and tough it out. My will, love and support was no match for the pain that they wanted to evade.
Having lived with and experienced all three during my formative years, it is only by the Grace of God that I can try to embrace and not judge.
Rest in peace, my friend. May your soul find the love and fulfillment that evaded you in life.
