Tell us about your loved one.

Chris was a very intelligent young man that had so many dreams for his future. He was engaged to a wonderful girl and was making plans to start college. The youngest of three sons, he was definitely the free spirit.

Tell us about Christopher's struggle with addiction

Unknown to us, Chris started using mj around age 14. By the time I realized he had a problem, at age 18, he had already become addicted to heroin. Chris tried several different rehab programs but none that would keep him long enough to be of much help and with him being over 18 we had no control. When I found him in his room that final day, he had been clean for almost a year. His struggle was over...but ours, 11 years later, continues on.

What made Christopher smile?

His fiancé Bre and dog Sam. His big brothers and all of the pranks they loved to play on each other.

What do you miss most about Christopher?

His hugs and hearing him say "I love you Mom"
