Caine Albrecht Hilderbrand was 24 years old when he died of a drug overdose. Caine was Intelligent, funny, loving, and athletic. He played college soccer and was a junior Olympian skiier. He loved his family and his animals. He was someone that was friends with everyone. It has been 6 months today since he left us. Not a day goes by that we don't think of him and miss his spirit.
Caine reached out about a year and a half ago asking for help with heroin. He became sober and was doing well in local counseling and recovery groups. He relapsed on June 20, 2018 and died. The drug was laced with fentanyl. He was 24. I miss my son, his laughter, his gentle spirit, his intelligent mind, his way with others, and I miss our long talks about life. I miss family time spent skiing, camping, rock climbing, and rafting. We had many adventures together. Be the change you want to see in the world- Gandhi. A quote that Caine would like for others to fulfill.
