Tell Us About Them:

Josh was a loving father of our four boys. I miss my handsome husband. One of a kind, my soulmate, my eternal love. We miss you Josh. Every single moment.


Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

Josh struggled with addiction for most of his life. He never wanted to succumb to this demon life, it just took over his entire being. He started using hardcore with cocaine, and oxycontin along with alcohol. Up and down, up and down, he tried to stay away from it. We moved, it followed. 21 years of my life with this man and I didn't even know he used heroin. I thought about it a few times, but was too scared to ask and possibly get an answer I couldn't handle. So, I found out about his addiction when the coroner called me to come identify his body at the morgue. So many hearts stopped beating that day. I will not ever shy away from asking, I will never be ashamed to speak up, never again will I take way the chance of saving a life. You will hear my pain, and hopefully you'll never see it.


What Made Them Smile?

He had the most handsome precious sons that made him the proudest father in the world.


What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

I miss his face. His knowledge, his strength, his heart that loved me so hard, his laugh.... Silly sense of humor. My one and only love, I miss you being here with me.


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

You were right, I will forever be your wife!!!
