My Tribute:My heart breaks that he wouldn’t let me help him when I knew he was struggling. The pain he carried inside is inevitably what killed my baby. He chose to self medicate instead of feeling safe enough to tell me what he was feeling. I don’t say this to hurt anyone or to make anyone feel responsible or as if I am incentive. I say this because I want people to know how wonderful he was and that this world is truly missing a great human being. Our children have lost the most amazing father to such a horrible disease. All I ask for is change which is within all of us. I want us to smile at one another. I want us to be able to ask for help when we need it. I want us to apologize with a change as to never have to repeat the same apology. I want us to not turn moments into memories. Damien was an incredible man, husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. May we all remember his contiguous laugh, at times annoying humor, his beautiful eyes, his amazing spirit and caring heart. I love you.
