His love, smile are always with us. However to hold him to have him with our family to laugh with him to just talk with him and have him be able to have his own family he wanted so much. That is what we miss. He is with us but he's not with us.

Tell us about your loved one.

Loving and caring person........ Who worked so hard to beat his addiction but at the end he was tired not just at his mental health issues, his addiction but also tired of hurting his family and friends who he loved so much and who loved him so much.

Tell us about Scott's struggle with addiction

Started as a mental health (OCD) issues in 5th grade then as he got older a very complex, confusing and a tangled web of not one issue but multiple issues that didn't allow Scott to live a normal life. He tried so hard through wilderness program, rehab centers, AA meetings, finishing high school and going to college. He/We did everything possible. Our Christmas of 2009 we had our family back together again and how happy and full of love we all shared together. Scott was clean now for over three years trying to continue on the road to recovery and live the normal life he so much wanted. However mental health issues and the web of addiction caused Scott great angst and pain. We lost Scott just before his 21st birthday. In his letter to us he says "this is a choice that I have wanted for a long time now, even since I was a kid. The cause is unknown but it kills me everyday, there was nothing done wrong by anyone. To my family I love you guys so much and don't you forget it. I'll never forget the good times we had as a family. Words can't describe how horrible I feel everyday for putting such strain on all of our relationships. I love you guys so much. We Love You More (LUM) Scott and are so very proud of you for everything you had to go through and everything you did in the short time you where with us.

What made Scott smile?
