A Dad Has Written A Brutally Honest Obituary For His Daughter After She Died Of A Heroin Overdose
Tom Parks said he hopes his family’s honesty about his daughter Molly’s struggles may help other families dealing with drug addiction.
A dad in Maine has written a painfully frank obituary for his 24-year-old daughter after she died from a heroin overdose earlier this month.
Instead of being vague about his daughter Molly’s cause of death, Tom Parks wrote point-blank that his daughter died of a heroin overdose.
He then detailed in heartbreaking detail his daughter’s years-long struggle with addiction.
The obituary was published online, and quickly went viral for its candidness.
Parks wrote that Molly attended college for one year, “until her addiction took over.” “She enjoyed theater, fashion, reading – especially Harry Potter, and will always be remembered for fearless personality and her trademark red lipstick,” he wrote.
Parks wrote his daughter had made “bad decisions,” including drug use. He said she had struggled to fight her heroin addiction for at least five years and had almost died of an overdose once before.
