Woman's obituary includes a poem she wrote about addiction

Associated Press

The parents of a 23-year-old Pennsylvania woman who overdosed on heroin have included a poem in her obituary that she wrote about struggling with addiction.

Delaney Farrell died Saturday in the bathroom of a hotel where she worked.

The obituary for Delaney Farrell was published in The (Sunbury) Daily Item. The Selinsgrove woman died Saturday in the bathroom of a hotel where she worked in Williamsport, where she'd also been staying in a halfway house.

Farrell's poem begins, "Funny, I don't remember no good dope days. I remember walking for miles in a dope fiend haze."

It ends: "I remember constantly obsessing over my next score but what I remember most is asking God to save me cuz I don't want to do this no more !!!"

Bridget Farrell says she included the poem because it showed what her daughter was going through.
