Tell Us About Them:

He was the most caring person, would do anything for anyone. He was learning a new trade and beginning to love his new life. He was my youngest of 5 children and we have a very close family. This has broken us apart and we are lost without him. He is missed terribly.

Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

His struggle I think was right out of high school but became worse in years to come. He struggle for many years but we finally thought we had this beat. Heroin is evil. It took my baby after 15 months clean.

What Made Them Smile?

His family, especially his nieces and nephews. Also working on and reaching his goals made him happy.

What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

His hugs, his voice, his laugh, him coming for coffee before work in the morning. Not one thing is easier than another. I miss everything about him.

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

I love you so much. I'm so sorry I wasn't here for you that horrible day. I don't know what made you go back but I wish I was around to make a difference that day.
