Share Some Thoughts About Them

Tell Us About Them:

He was a good man at heart, and he loved his daughter so much.

Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

He had been struggling for a few years to kick the habit. Just this past summer, he was trying to get help and get the vivotrol shot. Family and friends were all trying to help, and he really wanted a way out. He feared the withdrawals the most, having done them a few times. Hanging with the wrong crowd....always calling, texting and tempting him... He got put in jail and went through withdrawal for 45 days...

What Made Them Smile?

He had a funny sense of humor and infectious laugh. Me buying him milkshakes made him smile, spending time with his daughter, his favorite cousins and true friends

What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

His excitement to see me when I came to visit, him washing my car for me, and just being able to talk to him.

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

So many people miss and love you. Hanging onto the funny memories and who you were before you met heroin.
