Christopher was a sweet, compassionate soul and loved all who came into his life. He was passionate about human rights, loved animals, playing his guitar and had an amazing sense of humor. His greatest wish was for people to understand those struggling with the disease of addiction and for there to be equality for all who need healthcare, regardless of income. As Christopher didn’t have health insurance and couldn’t afford a drug rehab program, he turned to the herbal drug Kratom to manage his addiction and died from acute Kratom Intoxication.

As the months go by, I’ve learned a mother’s love never diminishes; in fact, my love for my Valentin has grown, just as it would have if he was still alive. I am still your mother. You did not die without a legacy and a purpose for those that you left behind. It’s up to me, and your brother. We honor you by healing. We wouldn’t want it any other way. Sadly missed along life’s way,
Quietly remembered every day…
No longer in our life to share,
but in our hearts, you’re always there. Te Amamos Por Siempre
