This is a story of my little girl. I miss her humor and smile every single day. A beautiful soul taken way too soon. I couldn't get a photo of her to paste, but, she was a smart, beautiful loving young lady. She was only 27 years old when she lost her battle with addiction. She lost her brother to the same demon 2 years and 6 months to the day after her brother Joey. She and Joey were extremely close and she couldn't get past losing him. She fell further in her addiction, trying things she never tried before and before I knew it she had suffered the same fate. My world was over, see I'm a recovering addict myself, and I couldn't help neither of my children. She was so full of life, a beautiful soul, taken way too soon. I miss both my kids very much, Samantha never had any children but her brother Joey left us his son, that he never met. He loved his Aunt Samantha, he means the world to me and they both live on in Joseph Michael Pierce Jr. I hope and pray for every mother who is fighting or trying to help an addict. May God bless you all.
