April Ann Molinari

She loved her family.

April had struggled for more than 15 years. In the past three years her addiction escalated to to highest level possible. Her struggle of mental illness and addiction was always present. Being a nurse and her Mom, I was always trying to fix her and get her help. Somehow she always bounced back. Through the use of outpatient, in patient, expensive out of state programs, and DBT therapy, I always looked for the golden ticket. Her struggles in the last three years led her down the path of no return. Every horrible thing from incarceration to living on the streets happened. We were able to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with her for the first time in three years in 2018. As she was waiting to get into a recovery home, she stayed with her father, near all of us. April's drug of choice was not heroin but it became it for the first time in 15 years. Her death was an accidental overdose. Her struggles are no longer but I miss her every minute of my life. She is finally at peace at the age of 32 years old. April was the most kind, artistic, giving, and religious soul. We fought so hard over the years. April has family that love and miss her beyond words. April loved making jewelry and painting. She was always making something and giving gifts to everyone. I cherish these...her Mom
