Tell Us About Them:
Our son was an intelligent, kind soul, who would help anyone and everyone who needed a hand. He was amazing with small children and enjoyed all types of adventures. Everyone who met him, loved and respected him. He had a bright future ahead of him and was loved at a level that I am sure he was not aware. He was amazing and is missed by so many.
Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:
He struggled with Heroin addiction for about 2 years (we think) and prior to his death was very close to taking the next step in recovery. He attempted detox a couple times, but the demon always came back. Ultimately his choice to use on 5/27 was his last.
What Made Them Smile?
He loved life! He lived everyday to enjoy time with friends and family. He loved his family, his truck, his girlfriend of 3 yrs and spending time just messing around. He could make any adventure fun with his crazy sense of humor. He laughed and smiled alot!
What Do You Miss the Most About Them?
I think I miss his smile the most. Every time he saw me, he would say "Hi Mom" smile and give me a hug. I miss that the most.
If You Had a Chance to Say One More Thing to Your Angel What Would It Be?
I would tell him that I love him more then life. Also know that I forgive any and all things from the past and hope that he is at peace.
