His smile and how he could just magically lighten up the atmosphere!

Tell us about your loved one.

George was extremely outgoing, full of humor and would light up a whole room with his presence. He was outgoing in sports, dance, friends. He still makes me smile when I think of my memories with him. I could read his every move with his eye and body movement. We had a deep spiritual connection. Now his 2 younger brothers are full blown heroin addicts. I am stuck, I don't know how to help them now.

Tell us about George's struggle with addiction

George started smoking pot, I believe age 11 or 12. I know I found him drunk just a few times. I just never even knew he was headed toward a massive war which would take his life. From psych wards, counseling, A.A. & NA meetings, jail, prison. He would pull himself up but never being able to stay sober for long. I believe now he should of been on some medication for depression. I should of taken him when he was young to a psychiatrist to get examined. He cried to me often. But one time, one of his sober times, I remember taking him to look for a job and he looked at me and said " Mom, what is wrong with me?" The addiction of course advanced to the point that he wished for death.

What made George smile?

George was cheerful. He was a leader. Love and laughter was his daily attitude.
