Tell Us About Them:

Michael was athletic, kind, funny. He could name any player, on any team, of any sport. He was a great left-handed pitcher. He loved the Dodgers.


Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

Michael tried alcohol and pit when he was 12. At 14 he had a surgery and was given morphine. He said "this makes me feel good." That was the beginning. He spent the next 12 years on a roller coaster of using, rehab, sober living, relapse, rehab...

His daughter Mia. He called her "my girl." He loved his time with her. She was 3 1/2 when we lost him.


What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

His laughter and his hugs.


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

I'm sorry. I'm sorry that I didn't know enough about this disease to help him more.
