Tell Us About Them:

My brother was my first teacher; he taught me how to write my numbers/letters. He was a talented baker, and was very sensitive. He had a huge heart. Steve wanted to be loved the way he loved. He finally found that love within his own son, who he left behind at the tender age of 3.


Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

Steve struggled with many types of drugs before Heroin, but tried it the first time at age 21. He never looked back and was hooked the first time for more than 22 yrs. He passed from severe cold turkey withdrawal. It took four days.. here is a link to the piece I wrote detailing the day he died: https://addictionunscripted.com/jails-institutions-and-death/


What Made Them Smile?

Family made Steve smile. His son Cruz made him smile. True love made him smile; the beach; the sunsets/sunrises. Laughing with my sons... Hugs..


What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

I miss everything about Steve, except Heroin. I miss his contagious laugh and hugs the most.


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

I love you, and you are not alone.
