William "Brad" Bradley Spiegel

Age 33
Son, Brother, Partner, Friend
Age 33
33

Brad had presence. Aside from being very handsome, he was confident, strong, kind, and charismatic. He had so many friends and welcomed everyone into his circle. Brad was a gifted athlete, especially squash and hockey. He was a special person.

This past year, Brad found happiness with his girlfriend/partner Vee, and her daughter Paisley. They brought him so much joy and made his heart full. A little family unit had formed and they had hoped for it to grow. Brad had found a partner and he had purpose. Although their future was tragically cut short, that he was able to experience a deep love in his final year is comforting.

I will always mourn the brother I grew up with, before addiction controlled his life. I will miss his music recommendations, his texts showing me the new shoes or watch he bought. I will miss his gifts, because they were always so thoughtful. For my parents and I, Vee and Paisley, there will forever be a hole in our world.

Brad would want to be remembered for his open heart. He loved hosting and bringing people together, often for an afternoon bbq, evening of games, or attending a sporting event. Addiction was a dark shadow that engulfed him at times, but underneath he was kind, funny and lit up every room he walked into. Let's remember him with that warm glow that was felt by everyone around him.

Christina Marie Kirsch

Age 28
Daughter, fiercely loyal, bold, courageous and fearless
Age 28
28

Christina loved her family and she had a love for all humans and a love for nature. She never hesitated to give a helping hand and was never judgmental. Her kindness was to always help others and to bring life through her words and actions.

Christina had an incredible spirit, an infectious smile to share with the world that was unforgettable and an amazing personality. She was a beautiful soul inside and out and treated everyone she met with respect, compassion and kindness. She would always find a positive side to a negative situation. In 2005, Christina attended Pace University in New York City and graduate in 2009 Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Art degree in Psychology and made the Dean's list every semester.

I miss the most her spirit, spunk, wittiness, her smile and laughter, drives through the park at 1:00 a.m., going to the supermarket at 1:00 to buy ice cream, her kindness, her stand for justice--to speak for those who could not speak and defend those who could not defend themselves, a humble and loving heart, singing in the shower at the top of her lungs, journal writing, going to museums, going to Provincetown, Massachusetts (PTown) which she called her "Happy Place" and so many, many things.

"She will always be my "Shining Star" I speak of Christina everyday, I celebrate her birthday with balloons and her favorite dinner and cake. The memories I have will be for eternity.

Bran Henson

Age 36

Bran was an amazing artist. He loved the Steelers, cooking and fishing. He was a great uncle to his friends children and his sisters dogs. Bran loved listening to music and watching funny movies. He was always making someone laugh.

My favorite memories with Bran are riding bikes and playing outside when we were kids. We loved to go swimming together and play tag in the dark to “thriller”

I’ll miss his booming voice and big laugh. His silly memes and videos he used to send me. His texts would always end with “love you always”

I want everyone to remember Bran as someone who was kind and always checking in on people. He had the best manners and wittiest sense of humor. He loved plants and animals, especially his cats and was always trying to taking in strays. The world is a little dimmer without him.

Age 39

He was a strong person that would bend over backwards to help the ones he loved. He was funny. He loved deeply. He worked hard and played harder.

One time a our grandparents house I came running when I heard him screaming. He was standing on a recliner yelling about a scorpion. I looked and saw the crayfish escaped the tank. I scooped it back in and he climbed down.

I miss his laugh, his hugs, the dumb things he would say, how much he cared.

"I was the guy everybody said wouldn't amount to nothing. Now, I'm the guy that's proving them wrong."

Brenda Lynn Card

Age 42
Mother, lover friend God's Angel
Age 42
42

A woman who loved chubby things, tortoises and life;Sent to me to show me that I'd be truly loved no matter how many times I made those mistakes. Her friend asked why she was with me because I was ugly and fat? She replied; cause I feel safe with him

Our walls at Turtle Bay where I worked and ever time she walked the dock a painted turtle, she named "Picasso" would always come out and see her. One day the guys I worked with caught Picasso after B left and said theu we're gonna eat him. They placed him in a bucket outside on the dock. So when I took my break from dishes to take out the trash; I released him. I told her that night whatp happened and she was happy I let him go but was sad when she said " I don't want him to come see me anymore.

Hearing her snore as my mind raced with torment and I knew she wasn't being tortured like I was.

A mother who'd do anything to show her children they would forever be loved.

He was stubborn and fierce but you always knew he cared and he would always be there to protect you or make you laugh when needed. He was an awesome brother

Him calling me to make him dinners and choosing to hangout with his boring older sister made me feel special

He’s determined assertive personality and his sense of humor and kind heart

For his crazy fun outgoing personality and his love for his friends and family

Michael A Anderson

Age 25
Loving, Son, Brother, Father, missed
Age 25
25

Michael was my youngest. His father has multiple addictions and passed from Alcoholism. Michael had a green thumb and could grow anything, loved to play guitar and adored Metallica. He was a young father of one boy who misses he daddy more than he can put into words. Michael was always a very busy, outdoors kid and sitting still was not in his make up. We struggled for many years with his addictions and sadly the last few years of his short life were more than difficult for him. This breaks my heart and I just can't replace my child no matter how hard I wish it.

His smile and Laughter were contagious. I miss his big carefree smile

Having him period, I will always miss his presence

Remember him by hearing music and letting it fill you with joy and wonder

James helped people. He cared .he worked for his life . His life was hard having addiction and alcoholism in his family. He would take his shirt off his back for you .he was a proud man , but hid his depression

James always loved April 8th.the day his mom (me) got clean in 2002 . He finally had his mom . He always hugged me and told me things would be alright and to keep doing what I was doing , when I asked him to go to councelling with me . There are too many memories of James that were great. I miss him so much.we had so much life left to grow into a living relationship

His calls from bottom of my balcony . ." Throw down your keys mom" and his calls when he said " you make any dinner mom ?". I miss uss growing in a relationship

As a strong man who got on the wrongside but always always cared for his family , especially his grandparents .uncle and aunt.

Kerri Elizabeth Fernley

Age 26
Daughter, sister, beautiful, courageous, empathetic,
Age 26
26

Kerri was a beautiful, energetic loving young woman. She was my best friend. She had a smile that lit up a room & would do anything for those around her. She loved to read & was a gifted writer. She wanted to raise awareness of SUD & help others.

There are so many memories that I can't pick just one! There's the time she thought she discovered a new band that turned out to be Bon Jovi or the time her dad brought home an abandoned kitten. I told her once when she was mad that you catch more bees with honey. She responded that a fly swatter worked better. Finally one time she was so mad at me & she called me on mother's day to tell me I was her mom and she'd always love me - no matter what.

I will miss her sense of humor and just talking to her for hour upon hour regardless of the time. She knew me better than I know myself and I will miss the amazing bond and connection we had.

Kerri wrote an essay on her senior year of high school and in it said she wanted to be remembered as the girl who was always willing to help anyone find the same meaning in their own life as she found in hers, the girl who always had a good time, no matter what situation she was in & the girl who found her way to the top without the pressures of society influencing how she got there.

My brother was the kindest person I ever knew, with a heart bigger than life itself putting everyone before himself, always.

It’s hard to choose just one memory to mark as my favorite… We did everything together. We were the best-friend kind of siblings.

Everything.

He would want to be remembered for his laugh, his kindness, and his music.
