Brian Zielinski

Born
Died

I miss everything about him...even things I didn't like. I miss his smile, his absence and presence, making his lunch and including the 'special' treats, driving him to work. I miss sharing a good laugh with him. I miss Brian, my son, my baby, my love.

Tell us about your loved one.

Brian was a beautiful young man who had a zest for life and adventurous spirit. He enjoyed music, movies, skateboarding, camping and the beach. At home, he was content to listen to music or watch a movie, while curled up in bed with the cat. With friends, he lit up the room and got the party started. Brian had a great sense of humor, wit, and a contagious laugh. He always knew how to tease his mother! Brian had many friends with whom he was known to be a confidant, and a caring, faithful friend. Brian was a hard worker--always willing and able to give an extra hand. He was looking forward to skydiving with friends and was saving to buy a car.

Tell us about Brian's struggle with addiction

Brian was in court-ordered programs off and on. When in program his drug use was minimal as there was the risk of failing a drug test. When he could, he dabbled. I don't know that he had a drug of choice. What I do know is that his first heroin high was his last of any kind.

What made Brian smile?

Being a jokester and teasing Mom could always bring a smile to his face.. His friends and family could always make him smile.
