Tell Us About Them:

Bob was my oldest child and only son. He was a fun loving, quite and shy individual. He had a contagious smile and twinkling eyes. Growing up he played baseball, basketball and football. He was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan. He was a great father to his son, Keylin and a wonderful brother to his sister, Kayla. He loved to hunt and fish. He was happiest sitting by a body of water with a fishing rod in his hand.

Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

Bob began experimenting with drugs in his later years of high school, starting with marijuana and eventually prescription pills. Once his addiction began to spiral out of control and he couldn't afford the pills he turned to heroin. Once he went down that road there was no turning back. It robbed him of his soul and it robbed me of my son.

What Made Them Smile?

His son made him smile. Keylin was his heart and soul. Even through his darkest times, he never turned his back on his son. He gave all he had to him, up until his last breath.

What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

I miss his smile and our talks. I miss seeing him become a great parent and do things with his son that I know he treasured from his childhood. I miss hearing him calling me "mother" when I knew he wanted something, or just his big hug with the words "It will be okay Mom. I love you."

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

I tried to save you but I couldn't fix you. I miss you so much, but I know you will live forever in my heart. I will never give up the fight to help those still struggling. I wish you didn't have to go, but your passing gave me a voice and a purpose to help others, and I know you are standing beside me all the way. I love you my baby boy.
