Melissa’s statement read: “Today I joined the hundreds of thousands of families who have lost loved ones to opioid addiction. My son Beckett, who was just 21, struggled to overcome his addiction and finally succumbed to it today. He will be missed by those who loved him, his family and friends. My heart is broken. I am grateful for those who have reached out with condolences and I feel their love and sincere grief. We struggle with what else we could have done to save him and in the end we know he is out of pain now. I will sing again, soon. It has always healed me.”

Such sad news! Sending our thoughts and prayers to Melissa, Julie, Bailey, and all those that knew Beckett. He truly was way too young and will be missed.
