[PHOTO] Find Out The Story About This Family Photo That Will Leave You In Tears

People say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and that could not be more accurate than this photo. One woman bravely tackled the truth of addiction by taking a photo with her children and her deceased husband in his casket. The controversial photo had its fair share of negative and positive comments, but we will let you be the judge.

According to Opposing Views:

An Ohio woman whose husband died of a heroin overdose posted a viral photo smiling with her children near his open casket to illustrate the harsh realities of addiction.

Eva Holland said that her 26-year-old husband, Mike Settles, died from a relapse on Sept. 2, less than a year after becoming “a new man” in rehab, the Daily Mail reports.

On Thursday, Holland posted the picture to Instagram and Facebook, where more than 250,000 people have shared it as of Monday.

The couple had been together since Settles was 15. The Daily Mail reports that they split up earlier in the year but reconciled in May.

“He loved us all so much he decided enough was enough and went to rehab at the end of last year,” Holland wrote. “He got out right before Christmas as a brand new man. He had found His purpose for living again, he found his gorgeous smile again, he became the man, the son, the brother, the dad that we all needed him to be again.”

But everything went downhill months later, when Settles took “a single pill for a ‘tooth ache'” that derailed his recovery, Holland said.
