Born: 1975

My Tribute: Her family loved and cared about her deeply but didn’t want to discuss the problem. She tried to get clean, entered rehab, attended women’s recovery camps, and had periods of sobriety and fellowship. She even moved from one state to another 6 months before her death. Unfortunately she overdosed in August 2014. No real obituary, no rememberances of her work for kids with cancer, her love of the beach, or her support of many charities. It’s like her life was erased because she was an addict. This makes me sad; addicts are more than their addiction.
