My mother was saucey, she was intelligent, fiesty, loved to shop, loved to garage sale, loved scrap booking, reading, taking/getting pictures of her kids & grandkids.
i know that my brother had a lot of problems to run away from.i won’t say that he was a saint while he was on this earth, but i looked up to him.We will celebrate you and love you for all that you are. But when you are done dreaming, flying and achieving don’t forget there is someone waiting for you at the place where it all started. I MISS YOU On November 8th 2015, I received a phone call from my oldest son. Sincerely her mom, Tami My son Jonathan died of a heroin overdose September 26,2015, after being in a coma for 20 days. I had no idea when I got the phone call that he had ever tried drugs. We educate school kids and others on the evls and consequences of ever trying drugs.He said three little words that rocked me to my foundation, “Mom, Johnny’s dead.” He had such a good heart. Using the stories of our sons and daughters and their deaths due to drugs.I would always tell people and even today who ask in a voice of pure joy say “We Were Friends” who just loved and excepted each other. Not one phone call or text message ended without us saying “I love you”. He died at my parents home of an overdose of carfentanyl August 26 2016 no one knew how far his addiction had gone. Robin – our much loved son and brother who sadly died aged 27 on 18 November 1997 from an accidental heroin overdose – nearly 21 years ago but the pain of this still hurts today and always will. Loved you then Love you still Always have Always will Mum, Dad and Sean xx My daughter, Elizabeth, lost her battle when she was 23 years old in 2016, one day after leaving another 28 day rehab program. We will always miss your beautiful voice and your quirky sense of humor. Always, Mommy xoxo My first born child, daughter, sister, aunt and friend, Lauren Nicole passed away Christmas Day 2013 from an accidental overdose of Fentanyl.
Satara’s gone but she wasn’t the kind of soul that disappears or dies out. She has no idea how powerful and dangerous this drug was or that she would possible pass away from taking it.
For years I tried oh so hard to help you and get you clean and you had finally given me some hope, but oh was I wrong.
Just like the paper you wrote in a rehab class that I found in your room after you died at 26 years old, you wrote my mom was a very nice person but naive when it came to my addiction. It has only been 8 month and I miss you so bad every day.
I realized we would most likely never have been best friends, but I did love my mother. While of course you have to put yourself first, just know that someday you may need a loved one to be your rock, your tough love, your support system and that we can never truly know what is going on in someone else’s mind. We need to do all we can to save others from our pain 💔💔 I have been struggling with a heroin addiction for 6 years. I want to be clean and sober and not struggle with addiction everyday more than anything else I could ever have.
I did enjoy the periods where we were on the same level, enjoyed our adventures to deep conversations, her wisdom and input on many a topic. That makes me more sad than when I feel alone and know that the need to have your mother is no longer an option for me. the ups and downs, smiles and screams, tantrums and binges. What secrets and demons they deal with that are never mentioned. So try to embrace those you love as well as yourself. Please pray for me to get better and have a better life for me my family my kids and everyone else around me.
Remembering those who have died – or been injured – because of overdose is an important part of International Overdose Awareness Day. I wish I had known how to get you clean when I got clean, but I didn’t.
