Submitted by: Millie Jones - Parent

Name: Nathan Taylor
State:  Maryland, 21801
Date of Passing: 01/24/2013
Date of Birth: 01/06/1986
Age: 27 

Tell Us About Them:

My son was a charismatic young man. Quick witted and hilariously funny, intelligent and humble in the most sensitive of ways. Strong and handsome. Loved and deeply, deeply missed. We did not suffer my son's addiction as many families do. He never stole from us or did the things that many have experienced. My son's addiction came like a thief in the night and stole him from us before we knew what was happening. There aren't any words for the shock and dread that still haunt each of us who mourn for him.


Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

Nathan lost his finger in a wood chipper and never recovered from the pain medication. He walked a little on the wild side of things in his youth but I trusted him and believed that he would work his way through the obstacles and come out stronger. He had come out stronger until the accident. He struggled with pain and we talked about it just 2 weeks before he died. I know now in my heart that he suffered from the stigma of addiction and could not reveal where he was in the battle of his life. The drugs won. We lost him to less than 40mgs of heroin without evidence of any past IV drug use. It is assumed he had snorted the amount and stopped breathing and died alone in his apartment on the coldest day of 2013.


What Made Them Smile?

His smile always came easily. But if I had to describe his happy places; I would have to say when any pet showed affection, feather pillows, super soft blankets, new socks, music, his favorite foods, his friends, his siblings, the innocence of young children, a certain play on words or a phrase that could catch his imagination. He noticed things and expressed these things in ways that could make you laugh endlessly or stop and think about his take on it long after the time had passed.


What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

I miss every single amazing wonderful cell of his being. The way he held his shoulders. His essence, his eyes. Those eyes that a picture can never seem to capture the depth of. His mind, his thoughts, his moods, his peace and his poetry. His songs and his lyrics. How can I ever portray the depth of my sorrow and the sorrow of all who knew him?


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

I love you beyond measure and am so sorry I didn't know the depth of your struggle. Please forgive me for that.

2013/02/08 - Denny Bristow - Age 26 yrs - Ionia, Michigan

Submitted by: Sherri Boster - Parent

Name: Denny Bristow 
State:  Michigan, 48846
Date of Passing: 02/08/2013
Date of Birth: 8/2/86
Age: 26 

Tell Us About Them:

Who was Denny Bristow? Just an addict? Absolutely not, he was so much more. 

He was a mentor, protector, and best friend to his brother Randy (my second oldest).
To his younger siblings he was a hero, teacher and giggle maker.
He was that "one" crush to so many girls that they still remember it today.
He was a friend to many which meant a friend for life.
To his best friends he was family. To their mothers he was son. 
If in need he was counted on to be there to help.
To his first love he will forever own a piece of her heart.
To his aunts he was their care taker at times, helper and like a son.
To his cousins he was the cause of fun and laughter. Always having their back.
To his grandparents he was "scooter", their fence mender, yard keeper, repair man, BBQ cook, driver to the hospital, student of hunting and the R.I.P/deer tattoo on his arm to honor his grandpa.
To the schools and the boys in blue...... Well let's just say he never let them be bored. And yes going through a house, out a window, past a underground pool and over a 8 foot privacy fence in 30 seconds can be done. Especially if a cop car pulls in the driveway 
To Tony Stewart he was his biggest fan. And Denny is who brought nascar to our whole family. 
He was a country boy for life. He wore camo loud and proud. 
To his mom he was my first born and keeper to my heart. He was a son that had a great love for me. A bond that only we knew. The one that first taught me what real unconditional love was and what real pain is. Denny taught me patience and gave me strength I didn't know I had. Denny changed my life the day he was born and again the day he died. The time in between is what matters and was filled with so many memories that keep me going today. I choose to remember all the good ones with the real Denny. The bad and painful ones were opiates not my son. Denny was, is and always will be my baby boy. 
Denny had a great love for fishing and hunting. He loved his family and friends. He loved riding dirt bikes and quads especially with his brothers. He touched many in both life and death. He lost everything due to opiate addiction which lead to his final breathe from heroin. No words could ever describe the pain of his loss. The tears haven't stopped and the hurt will not ease. The memories are plentiful and held by many hearts. Denny is loved and missed dearly. 


Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

It all started with having fun with friends. Partying and the introduction to OxyContin. Addiction quickly set in before I even knew what was going on. Many run ins with the law and jail. Many rehabs. Family support and family destruction. A life of roller coaster ups and downs. Heroin was found to be cheaper with the same effect or better. He went from loving family, himself and life to hating it all. Helpless


What Made Them Smile?

Hunting, fishing, riding. Most of all his family


What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

I miss everything but especially his hugs with I love you mom


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

I'm sorry I couldn't save you

Tell Us About Them:

Tawni was my only child. She was my everything. She was very shy. She desperately wanted everyone to like her. Tawni had alot of acquaintances but not alot of real friends. The true friends she did have, all considered her to be their best friend because that's how she treated each of them. She had a huge heart. She absolutely could not pass a homeless person without giving them money. She spent her summers in high school volunteering at a camp for disabled children. She would do anything for anyone. She was also very silly and loved to laugh and make people laugh. She loved music and loved to dance but only when no one was watching lol. She was not very good at it. I could probably go on forever about all the wonderful things about her because to me, she was perfect. I miss her!!


Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

Tawni's struggle in life was her mental illness. She was diagnosed severe Anorexia at age 10. At age 11 she developed a heart condition caused by her eating disorder. Around age 12 or 13 she also developed OCD. Around 15 the eating disorder got better but she replaced it with cutting. She was depressed, hearing voices, obsessing over everything made multiple suicide attempts. She was diagnosed with several mental illnesses and was in and out of mental hospitals. Drugs were never a problem. In the end of 2012 she got out of a 3 yr abusive relationship. I don't think I had ever seen her so happy. She was enjoying life. At least that's what I thought. Jan 29th 2013 I was looking for something in her purse. What I found was Heroin. I was in such shock. She didn't even smoke cigarettes. I knew nothing about Heroin. I had no idea kids were even doing this drug. I confronted her. She cried and apologized. She said she wanted help. We sat and spent days calling every rehab in the area. Every single one told us the same thing. 6-9 month waiting list. Tawni didn't have 6-9 months. On February 14 2013, just 2 wks after I found it in her purse, Tawni died from a Heroin overdose. I can only guess how long she was using. My best guess is 3-5 months. Apparently she met a boy who she really liked and he was a Heroin addict. It is believed that he introduced her to it. I am changed forever and I don't think my heart will never recover from this.


What Made Them Smile?

Helping people made her smile. She just got so much joy from helping people and feeling needed.


What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

Her smile, her hugs, her laughter, her silliness...everything!


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

I love you!
