Crazy, but I always wondered if he rehab may have killed him ... maybe his body could handle the drugs but he could not handle the withdrawals. Or maybe he felt he needed to get super high before going into rehab and that was too much. And of course, he put on a LOT of weight in the end.
And I sort of always felt that his wife #3 - Debra Koons Garcia forced him to go to rehab. This is just a total guess on my part, based on there being something about her I just never liked....or I should say something about her made me feel funny. I always wondered why Jerry was with her, it felt to me like she didn't "get it"...but that's based more on her suing everybody after he passed and trying to cut everybody else out of Jerry's will (actually I think there was no will, which was a problem). I honestly know very little about her. But her fighting with Mountain girl
I'd love to hear any thoughts or facts about what really happened.
<-- if nothing else, check out Phil and Steve Parish ~ 5:25 into the video
More stuff: 30 min special from BBC...
<---REALLY GOOD IMO
Sickening the way "Mountain Girl" - wife # 2 was treated by Deborah ...especially hearing it from Jerry's daughter (in part II Of you can't take it with you).
May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
