Tell us what they were like before they developed a substance use disorder*
Nicholas was a very smart kid, he had a fairly dry sense of humor and was extremely close with his extended family. He never knew a stranger and was absolutely crazy in love with his dog named Ruger. Nicholas although had struggles truly loved his family.
Tell us about their struggles with substance use disorder
Nicholas like many young people started off with marijuana. He had written in a journal that I read after he passed..”the first time I tried marijuana I knew then that drugs were for me”. A very scary read for those that don’t believe in that drug being addictive. Nicholas passed from an accidental drug overdose of Heroin. He had used Heroin for around 10 months we believe. It stole his life VERY quickly.
What made them smile?
His dog Ruger without a doubt made him smile. He also enjoyed fishing, boating, frisbee golf, camping and being with family.
What do you miss the most about them today?
His hugs, the smell of his hair, his husky laugh and his deep love for his dad and I.
If you had a chance to say one more thing to today what would it be?
We love you......deeply and ALWAYS did.
