Our Ginger

My Tribute: Our amazing son struggled with depression and learning disabilities. But in spite of all his physical and emotional challenges he had a determined heart. An accomplished motocross racer and executive chef, he was full of love, and cared for everyone around him. Tim didn’t have a long battle with drug addiction but it only took one time, one distrustful friend who gave Tim drugs that he adversely reacted to. Our world has been shattered. This didn’t have to happen. We are losing our children needlessly.

Lily Dooly

My Tribute: Lily Dooly… daughter, sister, aunt, best friend… yes Lily did drugs but that was secondary to all of those roles that she played. And Lily was sober… even with her chronic pain from medical reasons, she was sober… and then one night she wasn’t. I look around at all of the people that love her and only pray that she even remotely understood her impact on this world. On top of my sadness of losing my best friend I sit here Then the family that she left behind. And then I am angry… how could she have been so reckless with their hearts… she’s fine now but they are not… I am not… my kids… her neices are not… but then I remember as a recovering addict myself… we all wanted the same things… including Lily… our demons are always there and sometimes they win… that does not negate the work Lily did and how strong she was… Lily was sober… Lily was strong… Lily was loved… Lily…….

My Tribute: Mark was the love of my life. He battled these demons for many many years. He had just done 30 days in Cali for rehab and came back in time for my birthday. He was so happy and healthy. 2 days after being home he was getting high again. 11 days after being home he was found dead of an over dose in my bedroom all by himself. I myself struggle with this disease and he is now my guardian angel. I will do this for him because I know that’s what he wants from me. I miss him everyday. I hope this epidemic will come to an end so no one else has to loose a child, husband, wife, brother, sister, significant other, friend or anyone. rip babe I love you.

My Tribute: Loving Son, husband and father, brother and friend to many. We miss his smiles,
humor and laughter and jokes. Always there when someone needed him. Worked up to the day he died while bravely fighting cancer and addiction. Suffer he did from the ravages of cancer, Oxy became his only friend and ultimately took his life at age 33. His epithet reads: Love Lives On and Nothing Beautiful is Ever Forgotten. May he rest in peace knowing he is loved and never forgotten.

Freddy Vizoso

My Tribute: My brother was a good soul. His addiction did not define him, it did steal him from us. He is so greatly missed. The world has lost a man who by his very nature was lived by everyone who met him. A Good Samaritan and awesome son, husband, father, brother and friend, his death leaves a void in many lives. He wanted to stop using heroin. He hated the pain it brought in his life. His promises and resolution to quit were real and authentic. Heroin was stronger then his determination. It was a demon that took control of his mind, his will power and eventually his life. May he rest from the torment that his addiction brought him. May his soul and spirit find peace in death. May he know how deeply he is loved now and forever.

I miss you greatly Freddy. I love you.
