Drug Related Death, but not Overdose...

Tina Starcher
Died May 27, 2007
Tina's Story
Tina was addicted to heroin and was murdered

Cody Grove
Cody's Story
Cody's story is one that terrifies a lot of us who love someone addicted. Cody in desperation, tired of fighting the fight, tired of feeling he was disappointing his family decided to take his own life

Caleb Connor
Killed by a driver under the influence of marijuana

Taylor Wilson
Taylor's Story
Taylor is not from Martinsburg or Berkeley County, WV. She was from Huntington, WV. My son met her at an NA meeting in Huntington during his short stay at the Newness of Life in Huntington, WV.  Taylor was waiting on a bed. Her story resonates so many others that I have spoken with.

The Butterfly on each of their shoulders represent Butterfly Kisses
