    Sad news! Condolences to the family and Juliya Roberst! Drugs are a very dreadful. Whether it was an overdose or suicide it is sad a woman left this world so foolishly at such a young age. People, stay away from drugs and find in life other reasons to live. Life is the best gift that cud lave been given to you as you could see the world and come on earth. Taking drugs is a crime for yourself, breaking your personality and ending your life fast. Besides, it is a great pain and loss to all relatives and friends.
