Over the last 20 years, prescription pharmaceuticals caused the death of between 14,000 and 27,000 Americans each year. One of the most tragic high profile deaths from prescription pharmaceuticals was Heath Ledger.

This is something that I wrote for Heathcliff Andrew Ledger.
Heath you make me don't fear to death.
Heath tell me what heaven is like.
Heath please come back my love.
Heath everyday I love you and I miss you even more.
Heath let me hold you in my arms.
Heath just God knows how much I love and I miss you.
Heath tell me why I can't be there where you are.
Heath our guardian angel, we would never forget you, ever.
