  • Shawn Hobbs from Palm City, FloridaA little over a year ago, my beautiful fiance, Marie Ray died unexpectedly 1 month before we were to get married. We had been together for 9 years, both battled the first half of those 9 years with a horrible heroin addictions. We had both found a way out of that life, by helping others see hope. She passed away from a brain bleed, unexpectedly 1 month before my dream was about to come true. This song 100% spoke to me, and took on a whole new meaning when that happened. I could so relate from addiction to death.
