My name is Sammie and this is my story.
I'm 15 and originally got my key to help look forward to something I had a lot of worries and a lot of anxiety and wanted to get rid of them that's why I chose the phrase "let go". Recently my cousin died. She struggled with alcohol abuse, drug abuse, and was unstable all together. She was 23 when she passed. My family and I got back from her funeral a few weeks ago. I decided to give her my key, so I placed it in her casket with her. Hopefully she will be able to let go of her demons and be at peace.”
