"If you or anyone you know has been struggling, please take your intuition seriously, speak up about your feelings, and reach out for help[...]"

He expressed his family's desire to start an organization in Pierce's memory, which will focus on real and lasting positive change. He concluded his message by writing

"Take care of yourselves, all of you. If anyone out there ever feels alone & doesn't know where to look for help, you are not alone. We will all get through it together."
