Tell Us About Them:

Alyssa was a beautiful spirit, a nature lover, animal lover, and wanted to take care of and love any creature that most others would think unloveable. She had a great and quirky sense of humor and loved to read.

Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

Alyssa had struggles and incidents in her life that I believe contributed to her addictive tendencies. She struggled with alcohol, pain medication and heroin abuse. We attempted to get her help, but she refused to admit her problem. She did go to a 6 week treatment program prior to her passing, but overdosed within 2 days of her return home. I found her...worst moment of my life, the image will be in my mind forever.

What Made Them Smile?

Her love, Mason, playing in the rain, her kitty Nico, and finding quirky things at thrift and antique stores. Such a silly girl!

What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

Her voice...she would call me Maja, I miss that. She would laugh, and say I sounded like a hooker when I would walk in clunky noisy boots or heels! Her goofy sense of humor, and thrift shopping with her. She was special!

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

I'm sorry, I wish I had done more sooner, I love you SO much!
