Melissa on the tracks, 2009.
Melissa on the Ave, 2011.
i’m really intrigued by your project you have going on here. i live a half hour outside of philly, and know the ave. well… i can’t wait to read more stories and interviews… do you have a bunch that you’re holding back for a book or something, or is all your work you have on your sites? just curious… anyways, keep up the great work…. can’t wait to read and see what you post up next…….
This is sad- such a wholesome pretty girl and two years later she looks as though she’s aged twenty years- such a terrible waste I feel sad for her – I wonder what the families of these girls are about that they arent fighting to help her no matter what- I too am an addict (fortunately in the comforts of the Main Line) but I am 59 years old and have always been able to maintain my professional life in the law but I know had I started out at her tender age, my family would have stopped at nothing to straighten me out- I didn;t start this garbage til I was 46 years old and had 9 back surgeries – unfortunate that dope is cheaper than prescription drugs (that makes no sense at all,but its a fact)- I am a mother and I would be crushed had my child ever done drugs- I look at these pictures and think how much I’d like to help then remember I’m in the same boat, just that mine is still seaworthy as it were- very intense work. Mr., Stockbridge- stories that need telling- bravo to you
This is a good friend of mine, so sad…. I know she just got out of jail in Delaware County not long ago. Hope she is well. Her boyfriend, and the Father of her children, Patrick Carr, came back to Delaware and overdosed, he is no longer with us, GOD BLESS HIS SOUL!!!!
