Candid heartache in opioid addict’s obituary

A young Vermont woman’s obituary is shining a light on the struggle of those trying to escape the grip of opioids. The obituary for Madelyn Linsenmeir, 30, appeared on the website for the independent Vermont newspaper Seven Days.

"If you yourself are struggling from addiction, know that every breath is a fresh start. Know that hundreds of thousands of families who have lost someone to this disease are praying and rooting for you. Know that we believe with all our hearts that you can and will make it. It is never too late."
