My Tribute: Samuel passed unexpectedly early morning on Aug 15, 2021. Skip may have been one person in the world, but he meant the world to many. While he grew up and had many friends and family in Maryland, his new journey took him to Louisiana where he made new friends and new family. Skip was a free spirit who kept an open mind and open heart. He spent time searching himself personally and spiritually, and had a drive to always be better. Skip showed his love in more than the conventional ways. Skip would help others less fortunate, even at times , when he himself was struggling. If you needed help, Skip was there. If you needed a different point of view, he had it. My world will never be the same without my brother, but I’m grateful he has found the peace he searched for all his life. Skip, until we meet again, your family and friends will miss you dearly. I look forward to the day we are together again. Fly High

My Tribute: My beautiful baby sister is forever 36 years old. We tragically lost her to heroin on 10/24/2021 and I have never been so heartbroken in my entire life. She was an amazing person who loved so deeply and wanted so much to fight her demons and live a normal life. I will never know what brought her to need to use again, but all I hear in my head is her voice saying “I love you Stephy.” And I hope it never goes away.

My Tribute: My only sibling, my baby brother, Eric. I wonder if you know how much I loved you or how much I miss you. You were my bubby and there is now a huge hole in my heart that can never be filled again because you are gone. You struggled for most of your life with mental illness and substance abuse. Your death was classified accidental, which it most certainly was because you had no way of knowing that you were given fentanyl. Five months later, I still cannot believe that you are really gone. Maybe I will never accept it. But, your life mattered! You were handsome, so, so funny and intelligent and you were incredibly loving. No one was a better listener than you and you gave the best and most insightful advice of anyone I have ever known. Sissy loves you.
