Addition to the "Deaths" section
I would like to make a sad addition to the "Deaths" section of this site.
My step-brother: Emanual Sullivan, died of a drug overdose, aproximately 2000, in Spokane Washington. I was in the military at the time & had not seen him for a few years, was browsing your site and realized his name was not there.
I believe his death was a combination of not feeling like he fit in. He was half African American & half Caucasian and living in a mostly white state like Washington, was prob. equally hard. Growing up the majority of his life in commune style living and then going into the "System," was most likely hard for him and although he had loving friends, you usually get a "crash course" in making it in this world(drugs, identity, self-asteem, etc).
He was also Shunned by his own biological father-Gary Sullivan AKA James (THE FAM Name he went by).
