Tell Us About Them:

Lonny was a wonderful son and person. He was my baby my last one. I have one older son. Lonny had a hard time with the divorce from his father but his father was a pediphille I had to leave him and take my boys far away from their dad. At that time I took them to a child psychiatrist who specializes in thiscandcshe felt their dad did not touch them it was just little girls. So we moved to Michigan. In time and with therapy he started to understand. Lonny was a straight a student he was on deans list through the school and college every semester. In 2006 he had gastric by pass surgery and in time became addicted to pain killers. So a long 5 years of him using and then losing everything. His car job his girlfriend. Jail time for stealing from us and becoming homeless

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

Please don't give up honey. Fight fight fight again I will be behind you always but I told him that all the time I new something was wrong because he wouldn't talk to me or his brother four days before he overdosed I left angry messages but I also left living ones
