    Dear Mayor Barry,

    I briefly met you once when you came to speak at my workplace grand opening and my instincts told me immediately that you were an amazing person with a good heart. When I heard the news of your son’s passing my soul ached for you and your family.

    I’ve battled addiction for 20 years so I know first hand what it can do to a family. I am so incredibly sorry that this happened, but I know if anyone can transform a tragedy into victory it’s you! This won’t be the final outcome. Max will live on within you and your family and I pray that brings you some comfort.

    Thank you for all that you’ve done for this community. Please know that we are grieving with you and we all love and support you, just as you’ve loved and supported us. We will be here for you and whatever we can do to help you through this, consider it done.

    Your Friend and Supporter,

    Erin Smith
