Eva Holland's husband tragically died from a heroin overdose on Sept. 2, but the mother-of-two's methods of handling her grief have rubbed some people the wrong way.
Following Mike Settles funeral last week, Holland posted a photo to Facebook of her and her children smiling next to his open casket. It's her way of spreading awareness that addiction can be deadly.

"I'm sure this photo makes a lot of people uncomfortable it may even piss a few people off but the main reason I took it was to show the reality of addiction," Holland writes next to the picture. "No parent should have to bury their child and no child as young as ours should have to bury their parent."
She goes on to say, "This was preventable it didn't have to happen but one wrong choice destroyed his family."

Holland shares that her husband first got hooked on heroin after taking pain medication. Following a stint in rehab, which ended last Christmas, he felt like "a new man" until he was prescribed pills for a dental issue.
"He did so good for so long but then a couple months ago it started with a single pill for a 'toothache' which inevitably led him back down the road of addiction," she writes.

While many people are questioning Holland's decision to post the controversial photo, she also has her fair share of supporters.
"Wow how well put! I am so sorry for your loss and I can only hope this helps the next person!" one commenter wrote while another said, "My heart goes out to you guys...and you have every right to post this!"
