Tell Us About Them:
Allison was our first born. She was a great girl. Full of life. Allison was an A student through Hugh school, was in marching band from middle school until she graduated. Allison was the one in the crowd that would always make people laugh. She was so fun to be around.
Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:
We really didn't experience Allison struggling with addiction. It was brought to our attention that she may have tried heroin. We talked to her about it and offered her help, but as I'm sure all do, she denied using. Within just a couple months she overdosed. Her sister found her in our living room. She overdosed by snorting the heroin. It is something I will never understand and ask myself why everyday. Some days I'm just numb and don't really even know what I feel. I just know it's the greatest heartbreak I have ever known. My heart aches for her and I miss her more every day.
What Made Them Smile?
It didn't take much at all to make our sweet girl smile. She loved being around her friends and enjoyed the simple things in life.
What Do You Miss the Most About Them?
I miss hearing her voice and seeing her smile.
If You Had a Chance to Say One More Thing to Your Angel What Would It Be?
I would just tell her, as I did every day, how much I love her. I would tell her how special she is.
