Sara Nixon

Sara Nixon

Born
Died

My only child, my Sara, lost her life to a fentanyl overdose after being tossed from rehab and finding her way to the place she always called home... Ligonier, Pennsylvania. Only two months later she was gone. She had struggled for 17 hard years and had thought she could make it through herself and with friends support after losing confidence in rehabs help.

Tell us about your loved one.

Always a little moody as a youngster, Sara was pretty and sweet with the world seemingly on her shoulders. She was raised by me, her mom, as her father had disappeared after knowing I was pregnant. She needed a strong father figure but never had one. I'm sure there was a hole in her heart missing a dad. She was a wild child as she became a teenager looking to find herself in altered states... I constantly was warning her about drugs and taking care of herself. She was an Aries and hard headed and never wanted to do anything except what was her way. I often felt I didn't know her as she often reminded me. I wish I had more happy times to tell about her, but it was a hard job getting her to finish school, find work, be responsible and help her mom. I hope to learn someday why she felt so defiant... a mental health issue? An overprotective mom? A world that was hard on her? I loved her with everything I had from the minute she arrived in this world and I wonder if I could have made her life happier somehow.
