My Tribute: Matthew lost this battle when he died from acute Fentanyl poisoning in March of 2023. He could have truly been anything he wanted but drugs and alcohol waylaid him. This disease is devastating for the victim, the victim’s family and friends.
Matthew would do anything for anyone and even without being asked. He was such a gentle soul. Unassuming, forgiving, and thoughtful, he did not realize how special and loved he was and how destroyed those that loved him would be in a world without him.
Hug your loved ones tightly, let them know how special they are, and that they give your life so much more meaning. Do it today, do it right now!
We love you, Matthew XOXO Until we see you again…,

My Tribute: Rebekah had the most contagious smile, it lit up the room! She was the most caring, kindhearted person I knew! She was always there to help anyone! She was my world, my best friend, my loving daughter and my Sunshine! She never stopped fighting her demons! She fought so hard! Addiction is a horrible disease. Yes, she went to use that Friday afternoon, but what she was given was not what she thought it was, she overdosed from carfentanyl-laced crack cocaine. That day my world was shattered, and even 1 year later, I’m still shattered ( as well as her dad and younger brothers). Even after death she still continues to help as she was able to save 4 lives with organ donation.
Mommy loves you baby girl forever and always! Forever 25! I hope you are twirling and dancing in the sky! Love you Sunshine!

My Tribute: Bryan was so much fun. We hang out a lot together. Just enjoying the simple things in life, walking, drinking coffee, trying new restaurants, and always catching up on tv shows on Netflix. He hated being addicted but keep trying to get away from drugs. But unfortunately he overdosed. He will live on in the hearts of those that loved him.

My Tribute: Will was my first born, he was a great child.: very kind, strong willed and so so smart. We had many wonderful years together alone and then with Noah and Talia, his younger siblings. Headways had girlfriends, and was a loyal friend to those he hung out with. After becoming sober, fell in love with Rebecca, got married, graduated from School of Mines with high grades. He and Reba moved to Oklahoma as Will got a job as an engineer for the Airforce. He seemed happy, accomplished and I didn’t see what was going on in his head. They moved back to Colorado this past year in August to attend School of Mines and get his Masters Degree paid for by the Airforce. He and Rebecca had lots of plans for the future. I was so happy for them. Willy was an excellent artist, musician, and knew everything about music. I spent time with him two weeks before he passed. He gave me sage which I burn to clear space for my son, I will always miss him. Addiction does not discriminate.

My Tribute: Devin Coe. You lived with your heart on your sleeve. I am eternally grateful for your presence in my life. You taught me so much about myself. You had endured more than any of us ever realized, and for that, I am so proud of you for being this shiny, supportive and loving person to everyone that you knew. You wanted people to be uplifted and strong. You wanted to be happy and free as a bird. You wanted so much out of life. I wish I could give that to you. You loved and cherished your babies Bruin and Brother. You were one of the world’s biggest Phish fans, and adored music of all kinds. You put time, effort and devotion into your cars, detailing them and making sure they ran smooth as butter. You took great pride in your wardrobe and hygiene. You always looked fresh and fly! You loved art, and videogames, travel, and family and friends. You always kept in touch and cared deeply for all whom you loved. I miss you every single day. I love you. I know you watch over all of us with love!!!
