Andrew AJ Godbout

Born
Died

I miss how even when nothing was ok he would make me believe it was, in the happy moments or the good days I miss his smile. He was always laughing so I guess I miss his laughter the most.

Tell us about your loved one.

AJ was a funny, soul. He loved to laugh and absolutely loved his movie collection. Any action movie he probably had it. He just missed his 23 birthday when he died. We dated for 3 years right up to his death. He loved life and loved his puggle Bella, he was always walking her around his college campus. He seemed to have known everyone he was friendly, caring, he used to call me his angel. He been mine for coming up on 2 years now. It doesn't get any easier leading up to the anniversary that's for sure. He was a beautiful person inside and out.

Tell us about Andrew AJ's struggle with addiction

AJ struggled with addiction for years, his poison..prescription anxiety meds..opiates. Though he was a happy soul on the out side, many days he struggled with depression. Fearing he was never good enough for anyone to love him, he often felt guilty for his addiction. For a while he was doing great except he traded one addiction for another after a while drinking in substitute...he finally went to rehab and got out New Years eve of 2012 we rang in the new year together. He was sober. He passed 14 days later. He was on life support for 8 days. The overdose caused an "anoxic brain injury" they called it. Most heartbreaking day of my life.

What made Andrew AJ smile?

His puppy Bella, Bella could make anyone smile he called Bella his daughter sometimes I think he loves that pup more then he loved me. In reality it was him who made me and Bella's hearts smile most of the time.
