To our dearest Charles you are so missed and thought of every single day. Our lives were changed forever the day you left us. Our hearts still ache as though it was yesterday. Please continue to watch over us from above. All our love forever until we see each other again.
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.

You are loved by so many. Your laughter, your passion and your love will never be forgotten. I hope you know you were never a failure. You were a powerful inspiration to every person that ever met you. I still have all of your letters you wrote me, you were always better with words. Thank you for being you. -Jamie (mama bear)

John was always willing to lend an ear to any hurting soul even when he was probably hurting more than any of those he helped. He’s now at peace.

Kristan Whittle8/03/87 - 3/11/18
Kristan was an angel on this earth. Her goofy sense of humor, her easy laugh, her empathy for all creatures, her magic with words, the incredible way she loved so completely even the broken, lost and abandoned, her intelligence and curiosity that spurred so many deep conversations and the extraordinary way she made others feel are forever gone.

Our beautiful Daughter Nicole overdosed and passed away on New Year’s Eve, of 2021.
Nicole graduated from USF and had a successful career as a healthcare recruiter.

Ronnie was a funny, highly intelligent and had a heart of gold. Ronnie was an amazing athlete and runner and such a kind soul. I can never remember Ronnie saying an unkind word about anyone, ever. He always found the good in everyone. He had so much potential but died way too young. Ronnie you are still with us, just not physically anymore. We love and miss you more than words can say. I know without a doubt that we will reunite someday again. Until then, you are in my heart and not a day goes by without thinking and missing you. xoxo

Ryan McElvain12/10/1980 - 01/13/2019
My beautiful boy was killed by pure Fentanyl. His Dad and I had no idea he was using so finding him deceased in his bedroom was an unbelievable shock. Ryan was handsome, funny, smart, kind, and a wonderful friend and loving son. I cannot wait to be reunited with him in Heaven. #Forever38
A beautiful soul who lit up the world with your presence. You are a gift to all who know you. Always in our hearts. We love you and miss you every day. Love, Mom and Dad

Spencer, you could light up a room with your dimples and even now I can still hear your goofy laugh. Your brother has grown up missing you every day. And you now have a nephew, Isaiah Spencer, who will know you only in memories and photos. You are not forgotten, we miss you so very much.
Steven Silver12/15/83 - 11/5/10
The day you left my whole world collapsed. You have changed my life in so many positive ways and i hope that you have been looking down from heaven to see just how much good you have done. There is not a day that goes by that mom and i don’t miss you or don’t think about you. I can’t wait til the day i get to see you again. We love you bro!
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
