  1. So heartbreaking. What did they die from? I’m sure there are measures that can be taken into action to make better living situations for these people. What are we doing as a community to help get these people back on their feet? How can we help?

  2. john sisolak died on the 19th of august. he was trying to fight mental illness & get himself together so i would marry him someday. we loved each other very much, but never caught the right break to actual go through with it. i’ll miss him every day for the rest of me life because he loved me with the rest of his. so many others still need help. when you see a homeless person, dont look away, smile, ask them if you can help, treat them like people who need help…he would like that
