December 9th, 2019 is the sixth anniversary of Mary’s death. Mary was a close friend, and also a coworker at The Blade, the newspaper in Toledo, Ohio.
On the morning of December 9, 2013, I received a call from a former co-worker (I had retired) at The Blade, informing me that Mary had not shown up for work that day. They had sent someone to her home and had found her laying dead on the kitchen floor. She had been stabbed to death. Her son was convicted of the murder. He was a loving son, and her only child. But, heroin got the best of him, and this was the result.
Today I ask everyone who knew Mary, worked with Mary, or seeks help with an addicted loved one to take time to explore A Place For Mary. Remember Mary. Find help for yourself here.
This site is a good first step in understanding addiction, realizing you are not alone as you struggle to know how to help someone you love, and finding the help you need, whether it’s just reassurances that you’re doing the right things or finding professional help for yourself.
Mary, you are missed.
