Tell Us About Them:
My mom died too young. She was 46 and was funny and loving when she was sober. She adored her grandchild and loved dancing and movies and cuddles and rescuing animals.
Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:
My mom struggled with her addiction from a very young age, alcohol and then prescription pills in any form, uppers , downers... She then found heroin to be cheaper and while she never injected it, she snorted it and the mix was deadly when combined with her heavy drinking. She tried numerous times to get sober and sometimes it would work for a few months but she always went back to heroin and alcohol.
What Made Them Smile?
My daughter Ava made my mom smile. Watching movies together, talking, makeup and hair made her smile. Seeing her family made her smile
What Do You Miss the Most About Them?
I miss the missed opportunities of creating this life together with my new children and seeing my babies forge a bond with her is now long gone. I guess I miss the what ifs.... I miss her smell and smile, I miss her phone calls late at night drunk at a bar. I miss her chaos, her noise, her frequency. I miss the smell of alcohol and Violet's chewing gum mixed with sweat and exclamation blush. I miss her drama and her needing me for help.
If You Had a Chance to Say One More Thing to Your Angel What Would It Be?
Mom, I am sorry for not understanding your disease more. I wish I knew more about it. I am sorry that I didn't spend more time with you at the end. I am sorry I pushed you away to try and protect my child from seeing you like this. I want you to know that where ever you are now, you are missed and loved and thought about daily. You have left a hole in my heart that can never be repaired. I forgive you for being a shit mom but can you forgive me for letting you go ?
