My Tribute: Katie, you taught me how to love. The first time I held you, after the doctor pulled you from my womb, I learned the meaning of love. Thank you for that. I miss you so much, everyday! I love you with all my heart and I will be strong, for you alone. I know you didn’t want to die and I know you didn’t intend to leave me. My precious daughter. I’ll remember you until the day I get to be with you in heaven. Love you so much,

My Tribute: It is a struggle to get through each day without you Sean. It helps to try to tell my heart you are in a better place, and that you are no longer suffering. I never truly suffered a heartache until the day God called you home. I know you fought that long tough battle as hard as you could and unfortunately lost. You left behind family and MANY friends who love you VERY much. We have a lot of wonderful memories. I will never forget how you would light up a room when you made an entrance with that big beautiful smile, and had a laugh that was contagious. You LOVED to watch and play sports; I was your biggest fan when you played hockey, soccer, and baseball. I also loved hearing you sing to modern country songs, and OMG how you would dance like nobody was watching. I was, and still am, so VERY proud of you Sean! You are my angel and YOU will live on in my heart forever and ever!!!

My Tribute: My brother, Ronnie, was the most loving, family oriented person one could ever meet. He had a brilliant sense of humor and loved to make us laugh. He was a highly intelligent and talented musician, artist, and business owner who thrived on creating and expressing himself through the arts. He adored the ocean and nature–living the simple life . He was a wonderful brother who was there for me many times throughout my life and made my life better in a multitude of ways. He was lost far too soon and we will miss and love him for the rest of our lives.

My Tribute: My brother was 5 years old than me. We were always at different stages of life but he was my hero from the beginning. I always wanted to be just like him. The way he lit up a room with his presence. His fear of nothing and ability to make friends so easily. I didn’t realize that he had self esteem issues and so much pain until the first time I found out about his addiction. Even after I knew he was sick I looked up to his ability to keep fighting and fixing his life. He always ended up back on his feet after he fell. No matter how hard he fell. It wasn’t until his addiction began that we became closer that he would invite me over for dinner or a drink. My closest time with my brother was while he was fighting his demons. And I was trying so hard to fight them for him. In early 2016 he got clean for the longest amount of time he ever had. He had gotten a great job in the union that required drug testing. He got an apartment all by himself with no ones help. He was proud he was seeing his worth. The week he died was a bad week for him. He got laid off and he got in a car accident. He was feeling down. He fell back to his demons. He used for the first time in 8 months. They ran a tox screen. It was the first time he relapsed. But the heroin was laced with fetynal it killed him imediately. My parents found him December 21st 2016. He was clean and one mistake later he was dead. I constantly see my brother in every thing I do. And I’m searching for ways to end the stigma and to save people in our community. That’s how I hope to heal.

My Tribute: My love,

It seems like this is a bad dream I will wake up from eventually. The days are longer and time moves slower. I stare at our daughter and wonder why this happened to us. You were so full of life before this awful drug took over your life. I saw the sadness in your eyes looking at us knowing how much pain you have put us through. I never stopped fighting for you or gave up. My nightmare became a reality when I got the news that you overdosed. Now I’m left with our beautiful baby to remind me
Of how precious life really is. I miss you more & more everyday. We talk to you all day, I hope you hear us. I pray you are finally at peace with your addiction and know I knew you didn’t want it to end this way. It’s a sick disease that I’m not ashamed that you had. I will keep your memory alive everyday. We love you so much. Until we meet again ..
