Since Michael's death, there have been reports that Michael was addicted to drugs, but the Cascio family says they never saw any signs of drug abuse. "It was unfortunate to learn of the so-called problem or addiction that we now know he suffered from," Eddie says.
The family says they spoke to Michael just three days before he died, when he called their home on Father's Day. They say his death has been hard on all of them. "It's an everyday battle that we all have," Connie says. "We all mention his name all day—at least once a day we mention him—because we actually can feel him in our home."
