Tell Us About Them:

Paige was a loving and sensitive person. She always tried to help everyone else. Even when helping herself would have been better for her. She was funny and a free spirit and accepted everyone for who they were. She could light up a room with her infectious smile and sense of humor.

Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

Paige was diagnosed with depression when she was 12. She struggled for 8 years with mental illness. She turned to drugs to self medicate when she was 13. She began with alcohol and eventually turned to heroin when she was 18. She overdosed on heroin with people she hardly knew 10 days after her 20th birthday.

What Made Them Smile?

She loved music, especially Sublime and Bob Marley. Her family and most of all her niece. She wanted so badly to be clean but just couldn't win the fight.

What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

I miss her smile, laugh, sense of humor, and her big hugs. I miss having my beautiful, amazing daughter by my side.

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

Don't use, call me so I can come get you and help you. I love you forever and a day, and don't know what I would do without you.
