Josh of all trades Gendron

At one time holyoke had more billionaires per capita out of the entire united states.

Now it has the best h****n dealers and best h****n prices in the nation. Ok now on a serious note ive been in all these citys i live in chicopee and at a low time in my life was homeless living in holyoke and springfield with a massive drug problem.

Ive been shot ive been stabbed and ive been in the worst of what these citys have. Im proud i rebuilt my life 6 years sober.

Own my own buisness and have a wonderful family. But everyday is a grim reminder when i bounce from holyoke springfield each day for jobs.

Thank goodness i live in chicopee.
