If you have someone in your life who needs help, don't ignore them, help them. Get them to the people who know what needs to be done and stand up to them. Don't let them fool (little f) you into thinking they have it under control, they don't. The one brother saw the problem in time and is still alive to tell his story, the other didn't and he is no longer around. Don't let it be too late for you

Thanks for sharing all that, Deannda! It is gut-wrenching to see someone you love slip away. I haven't lost any close friends or relatives that way for about 40 years, but it really comes home to you then how destructive it is.

Best,
Richard
