The obituary, so stark and visceral, captured the public’s attention.
It was for 24-year-old Molly Alice Parks. She died in 2015 of a heroin overdose in the bathroom of her Manchester workplace.
The obit’s final line: “If you have any loved ones who are fighting addiction, Molly’s family asks that you do everything possible to be supportive, and guide them to rehabilitation before it is too late.”
But what if you don’t? What if you’re lucky enough not to have a loved one battling this addiction?
