I knew the time had come, his delicate state could no longer be supported. With his father and the priest present, life support was removed. I like to think that his soul was long gone from his body.
I had the hospital priest come to pray for him and to forgive his sins. He felt so horrible for using drugs and for the harms it caused him and others.
I miss your face on a daily basis and the only consolation for me is that your soul is no longer suffering. I didn’t even know you were dead until 3 months later because of the shame your parents felt. I miss you my son…so much…I know that one day I will see you again…. On February 6, 2011, my beautiful son Levi lost his life as the result of an accidental overdose at the age of 30.
I know you are flying high with the angels and watch over all of us who loved you. The injustice of drug laws of which you were a victim has inspired me all my adult life, to change them so that more don’t die and others suffer completely needlessly. I never believed I would loose a child, but it happened anyway. God gained another angel when you were taken from this world. I pray that our Lord has been merciful with you and that you are in the utmost peace and tranquility….brothers miss you and love you and we talk about you often…never forgotten…always loved with cherished memories…. An educated, funny, music loving father of two is deeply missed every minute of everyday. His death broke so many hearts and had especially negative effects on those closest to him.
Your sister, dad, niece and I talk about you all the time, and you will always be a part of our lives even while you live in heaven. Nick you are no longer fighting this battle of addiction and are at peace. I honor his memory along with hundreds more every chance I have. My son, Branden, died by overdose on July 16th, 2010. He was, is, and always will be loved and deeply missed.
Erica Lane although we had grown apart you we’re a life long friend w a HUGE heart and an amazing soft loving spirit !

My sweet angel, 21year old Chase overdosed on heroine in November of 2015…my love, my life, my best friend I, not anyone who knew Chase will EVER be the same I never knew anything could hurt so badly I am broken I am empty I can’t wait to see his lovely face FLY HIGH MY SWEET DARLING YOU ARE SO GREATLY MISSED …all I want for you, my son is to be satisfied…all my love xoxo To My Precious, Loving Son, Ryan: Not a day goes by that I don’t think about you and miss you terribly. How many days am I supposed to wait to say anything? I say my son Maxwell’s name proudly and I am NEVER embarrassed to tell his story. I like to think that he is finally at peace, free from the tortures of addiction. Whether you are someone in active addiction, in recovery, a family member with a loved one in active addiction or in recovery, or the dreaded, a person with a loved one lost to the disease, we all suffer. We must stay strong together to demand changes in treatment and in stigma.
