Fentanyl – one of the deadliest drugs ever.
And it is killing people in record numbers.
And for the most part when we read and hear about this latest drug scourge we move on.
We don’t give it much thought unless we are personally affected.
And if the truth be told fentanyl not only kills but it is devastating for the people that knew the person that died from taking it.
So let us take you into the world of one brave mother, and her son’s death from a fentanyl overdose.
It is gut wrenching, heartfelt and filled with raw emotion.
But most of all it is the story of one mom and what her son meant to her.
It is something we should be mindful of.
Her name is Angie Levasseur.
“It was Sunday April 29, 2018. It was still only 10 a.m and I got a phone call from my husband that’d change my life for all time.
He said to come over NOW.
We only live a 3 minute drive apart and I knew something was wrong. Instead of asking questions on the phone, I knew that I could arrive there quicker than talking about it on the phone. I knew something was wrong, and his voice was upset, but I had no idea that in 3 minutes my life would change forever.
I prayed OUT LOUD during that short drive. “Please God, Please God, let Zac be ok”. You see, my son had been suffering from mental health issues since probably even before his early teens. He was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder, social phobia, and depression.”
