Tell Us About Them:

She was smart and funny and could play any musical instrument she tried. She had a beautiful voice. She loved her family and friends. Her favorite color was sparkle.

Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

She started a couple years ago with alcohol and pot. Then she experimented with other drugs. Rehab, IOP, etc. We thought things were going ok. She had her first apartment and car, 2 jobs. But she decided to try heroin.

What Made Them Smile?

Talking with her friends or siblings, telling us about her makeup or outfit or hair, going shopping, baking, teasing me, listening to her music, and driving all made her smile--almost as much as taking selfish did!

What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

I miss snuggling up to talk, watch a movie, take a nap, or make one of us feel better. I miss watching you grow into adulthood. I miss just having you around to see beautiful you and to hear your voice.

If You Had a Chance to Say One More Thing to Your Angel What Would It Be?

I love all of you. You were right about several things :) I miss you with every fiber of my being. Being YOUR mom is the best thing I ever did.
