    I have no doubt that your death was an accident. I think you were working hard and doctors tried to treat you with pills that did you no help. It is a travesty to you and your family. I can only hope that you are at peace and rest in heaven. I pray for you and your family, especially little Matilda, may you all have peace and may you be remembered as a hard working, talented, and loving father forever. Rest in peace and god bless.
