To a former student, who died too young.

Mike Lutz was a good kid when I knew him.  Quiet, funny, a bit silly.  A good boy.

Somewhere along the way, after he went on to high school, he lost his way.  Now he's gone, dead because someone sold him some "killer" heroin.  And it killed him.

In our local newspaper, his parents were quoted as saying that they knew Mike had a drug problem. They just didn't know how bad it was. “I think we were just clueless, absolutely clueless,” his father said. They tried and tried to get their son some help, but apparently, Mike's habit was stronger than their love. And that is the real shame.

Rest in peace, Michael. Maybe now at least you'll find some.
