CARUS Recovery offers our condolences to Megan Barry, the mayor of Nashville, TN, as she and her husband, Bruce Barry, mourn the loss of their only son, Max. The 22-year-old tragically died from a drug overdose on Saturday in Denver, Colorado.
Megan Barry’s office released a statement on Sunday from the couple, “Early this morning, we received news that no parents should ever have to hear. Our son Max suffered from an overdose and passed away. We cannot begin to describe the pain and heartbreak that comes with losing our only child. Our son was a kind soul full of life and love for his family and friends.” The family has asked that people respect their privacy as they try to contemplate this tragedy.
Funeral arrangements are still pending, however, a visitation is set for Monday evening and a memorial service is scheduled for Tuesday morning so that friends can mourn the loss of Max Barry.
