Passing of John Petrillo

My name is Tayla Simone. I am deeply saddened to learn my brother and last living sibling has passed away earlier today due to the awful disease of drug addiction.

My brother and I have been facing extreme heartbreak, anxiety, depression, and grief the last couple years after we first lost my oldest brother to addiction in 2015 and then 9 months later my mother’s body was found in the Charles River with the cause of death still under investigation. Now, I am the last one of us here and feeling extremely overwhelmed and scared not knowing how I will give my brother Johnny the proper services he deserves. I will be missing work and uncertain of how I will be able to take care of my bills along with the heavy pain I feel writing this. Anyone that can help me I appreciate it so much. No amount is too small. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY BROKEN HEART!!!!
