John’s family wishes to spread awareness about

The dangers of drug addiction and how dangerous

the drugs are that your loved one is getting. 

It’s not just in the Pittsburgh area, but this

Is everywhere.  So take the time today to check on

someone, get them the help if needed, or

You will be planning their funeral as well. 




You can still show your support by sending flowers directly to the family
