Tell Us About Them:

Jared was a son, brother, and uncle who would be there for you no matter what. During his active addiction he was a totally different person. He was the most cockiest person I had ever met. He loved learning about trees and had an extensive knowledge about them. He hated school and authority. Loved to be out doors all of the time.


Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

We have a lot of presumptions but we really don't know when he really started to experiment with drugs. He tried alcohol before he was 21 and got into trouble with that. After the first time of being in trouble with the law it just went down hill from there. He was very good at hiding his addiction. It wasn't until he was caught that we realized the extent of the situation. He had struggled for about 6 years with addiction. In and out of jail, being sober in jail, then getting out and going right back to drugs and hanging around the wrong crowd. We had hoped that a year and a half of jail time would have made him realize that sober was the way to be, but 30 days out of jail he was right back where he left off.


What Made Them Smile?

He loved goofing off and picking on people.


What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

I miss everything about him. Even though he got on my last nerve I still miss not having him here with us physically. Not being able to grow old with him and knowing it's just me now is what hurts the most.


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

I would tell him that I loved him. We never really expressed out feelings for each other or in our immediate family. We all just sorta knew that we all loved each other in the actions that we took everyday. That we all needed him even if he thought that we didn't. I would express my feelings more openly with him and tell him the honest truth with no filters. Hoping that he would realize his actions was hurting everyone around him.
