Still going to remember #Prince through the way he lived — his music. Don’t remember him for the way he died.

Aww, #Prince. Nothing sadder than a person succumbing to an addiction they were trying to fight.

So heartbreaking. All we can hope is that this brings awareness to drug addiction and to the criminals who supply people opiates without prescriptions.
