I thank god I got the opportunity to meet you and am waiting for the day I see you again.
I hope you are happy and healthy and I now understand why you couldn’t tell me why you left. The day she died mom ( my grandmother but I call her mom) and I had started a folder of thing to show her when we meet after I turned 18 and the next day we get a call saying my mom had overdosed and didn’t make it.
I was going through some paperwork today and found the doctor’s report of my admission to the hospital, which you were responsible for, because I was in no condition to do it for myself. She was very depressed cause she hung out with the people who didn’t care about her and so she hated her life if I only could have seen her one more time I would have told her how loved she was by my brother and I and she didn’t need to feel alone but we couldn’t talk to her and let her know.
Mandy was a huge part of my family lives, more like a sister, daughter, and second mother to my children. You are always missed and forever loved and thought of. Rehabs and Clinics are only in the business of making money not saving lives. I have another son, David who joined the Navy to get away from this epiepidemic! When he came home he struggled with his addiction once again. You take ours hearts with you and you will always be missed by those that loved you so much..
I know that she had to make the decision to stop and no matter how much I pleaded or punished it would have made no difference. Mom❤😓🎶🙏🏻🏃🏼🏀🏊🏻🎷🎮⛪ NC December 28th, 2014 was the day that changed my life… I miss you more than you’ll ever be able to understand) With Love, Your Princess 👑 USA I lost my handsome, intelligent son Michael due to his disease of addiction on February 5, 2016. He was found to be 100% disabled after fighting for his country and the day after his brother overdosed he received a retroactive disability check in the amount of $149,000! If I would’ve been there that day this would’ve never happened. Lexington, NC I want to send a special message out to my husband who I have known half of my life he was my first kiss it was like a dream came true I met my soon to be his am I always known from the first time I seen you that you were going to be my husband!
She used from the age 17 off and on till the day she died at the age of 55.
The day we found out we were devastated and began to plan her wake and services but it turned out not to be so simple.
Remembering those who have died – or been injured – because of overdose is an important part of International Overdose Awareness Day.
If you would like to commemorate somebody, please add Tributes here.
Whether it takes every fiber of your being, make that phone call, knock on that door, but reach out! I love you Talbott ‘COOKIE’, my (BIG) BABY BROTHER…I’m in my 16th year of sobriety now, 8 years after your death, but I almost died too…were so proud of me…but our FAMILY has had GENERATIONS of genetic predisposition to ADDICTION and we’re in social denial …and because of ‘success for some’, our ADDICTION-FACTOR was kept hush hush…generations of us dying prematurely because others won’t get involved…i don’t know…im not a Ph D…im just a sober Big Sister still struggling with your absence…I didn’t know someone could cry so hard for so long and still be alive… MIZPAH, “JIMMY”☝️ Michigan Rachelle, it has been 4 long painful months since you left. Throughout her life she had survived many difficult and life shattering experiences that she felt could only be covered by the numbing effects of drugs.
This disease doesn’t have to take another life if you are willing to humble yourself and get the help you need. I’m so BLESSED to have had you in my LIFE…My Dad died when I was 5 …Mom remarried and you were born when I was 8 years old…I got to go to the Hospital and SEE MY NEW BABY BROTHER! I still play back in my mind everyday what the police told me at am on August 23,2017. It took over you and took your life in such a short time. Although unfortunate we will not remember Sonia for her struggles, only the loving, bighearted person she was. She was a mother to six, daughter, sister, grandmother, and friend to many.
She was a person, smart, funny, always quick witted. 8/1/88 – 10/4/17 God gave us 29 years with Brent and he left us with two beautiful grandchildren. He did his best to try to stay sober, but the addiction had been too powerful. His love for other people and animals would melt your heart. My 24 year old daughter was addicted to oxci 30s and eventually she turned to heroin! Thankfully I had my grandson when she was arrested otherwise he would be in State care! I know we will all be together again but until then I pray they are finally at peace, Okc, okla Dear Mary, I know that you are in recovery now and have realized over the past 4 years why you left me.
