Michael Lee Cancino

Age 48
Loving, Funny, and Artistic
Age 48
48

He was a beautiful soul that went down the wrong path in life that he could not return from. He was loved and cared about by so many. He is missed everyday but we all take comfort knowing he is no longer struggling.

His unconditionally love , his beautiful drawings, and his laugh.

We miss his voice and his annoying laugh that would make you laugh right along with him. I miss your daily phone calls Big Bro. We love and miss you with all our hearts.

Brandi Ann Shepherd

Age 31
Mother, Sister, Friend, Advocate, Ally
Age 31
31

Brandi just lit up the room with her smile and inner beauty! She was an amazing person who advocated for those who were unable to do it themselves. If she could see through our eyes, she would have seen how loved and adored she is forever and always!

I remember meeting her and her friend (our friend) Amber at a local gas station/diner. They ROCKED guitar hero so well that Amber went out and purchased the whole setup! I tried to take photos that day but my phone was dead so I was unable. I also remember going to Logan WV (I live a county over) for my first CCAR PRSS training where Brandi was the first to talk to and assist me. She and all the rest in Logan made such a impact that I've made it a point to keep in touch to support one another.

I will miss making pacts with Brandi like "I will go if you go" Ya see, we both suffer from terrible anxiety but still love advocating. We would attend events where we were nervous to speak so we ended up kind of daring one another. Advocating for mental health and addiction recovery will never be the same!

As an advocate for those who haven't succeeded in navigating through their own addiction and mental health issues into a healthy way of life! And as the amazing mother, sister, daughter, friend, aunt, advocate and ally she was!

She was very out-going and always cracking jokes. She was an optimist and a ray of sunshine with a bubbly personality and a contagious smile. She was always in a good mood and smiling.

Her confidence and her smile.

As a wonderful mother who fought to the death against her addiction to be with her son.

Jeffrey had a huge heart. Even though he struggled with his demons he tried to help others with their's. He has 2 girls he loved more than anything & he loved his ma so much, he said I was his anchor. #jeffreyforever35 💜🖤💔

He once seen a homeless person & asked if I had any cash we could give him. I turned the car around. Jeffrey gave him the $7 I had & we sat in a parking lot while the talked like friends. What a beautiful heart.

The thing I miss the most is him always calling me ma. He didn't see his girls often but he lit up when he was with them.

Jeffrey would like to be remembered as a brother that loved his 2 younger brothers, a grandson that loved his grandparents,but most of all he would want to be remembered as a father that loved, and adored his daughters Emma Jane & Karlee May

Loved his girls, my soulmate and best friend. My protector and my safe place. The biggest heart. Loved to fish and hunt. Could make anyone believe anything, always cracking jokes

So many memories. The day he got my engagement ring, his excitement. The nights we’d slow dance in the dark.

For his love and wit. His jokes and stories. His desire to always help others.

Princess Eowyn Nymawea Bogan

Age 19

She was rainbows and darkness. She wanted to make everyone happy but could never find her own happiness.

Day at the pool. Someone stole her shoes so she has to wear mine. It was hot so I had to jump shadow to shadow for 20 blocks. It was fun trying to find the next shadow for me to jump to. Afterwards we played Monopoly and she cheated her butt off to win.

Jessica Chelsea Leigh Corrine Jasmine HAYWARD

Age 25

Her unique perspective gave her the ability to see and understand things that people around her were going through and help them see it more positively. If only she could've seen herself. She struggled with feelings of inadequacy that no one saw.

Halloween
JESS: Can I borrow one of your masquerade masks? I'm going trick or treating with the kids....
FrIend: What are you going out as?
JESS: A LAW ABIDING CITIZEN...but I need to wear a mask cause I might have warrants

Her smile , her laugh , her loving-kindness and imagination

She would like to be remembered as she truly was. Someone who deeply regretted being an addict but could no more change that than she could change the way the world spins. She would like to be remebered as a mother a daughter a friend and sister, just a regular person. Not just another addict. Like she said it wouldn't matter if she never did drugs again, or she turned her life around and never did wrong for 50 years no matter what people would always see her as just another junkie, not as her

Matt was a force, so admired and respected among his peers. He was an extremely talented big wave surfer, a charger! He was so funny and had the most unique laugh like never heard before. He loved his family fiercely especially his Son Logan.

Being in Mainland Mexico surfing and water slides with our Son Logan.
Hiking in Hawaii diving and chasing turtles, cruising around in Baja, MX.

His beautiful hazel/green eyes, the way he looked at me, his laugh and the way he loved our Son Logan !

Matt fought his hardest to beat this horrific disease. He was not the addict, he was so much more. He helped so many to get clean and stay clean. He saved lives. He was loved beyond measure by so many people ! He touched a lot of hearts !

Cassandra Sue Walker Nolin

Age 38
Daughter, Mother, friend and Joy
Age 38
38

Cassandra could light up any room she walked in and knew how to make the most awkward or shy person feel welcome. We miss her hugs the most.

Cassandra’s most precious legacy she left behind are her 4 beautiful children whom she loved and was so very proud of. She was always full of joy and her love for God, her family, and friends was obvious. She loved the outdoors, hiking, camping, the mountains and beach. She made beautiful quilts, loved to cook, paint, and write poems. We love you forever

All the times we spent as a family having fun and being carefree. From the time she was a little girl she was always full of smiles and joy. Even in her darkest days she always had the most positive outlook on life. She never gave up and loved her family fiercely.

I will miss her hugs and laughter the most. I can’t wait to hug her in heaven one day and never let her go.
Cassie had the most beautiful smile and the kindest heart. She was gentle and kind but would fight for what was right.

Cassie would like to be remembered as someone who was always full of joy and love. She would do anything to help anyone in need. She was also a hard worker and would be quick to learn new skills and take on whatever was put in front on her 100%

Gunnar was a funny loving man who only wanted to make his family proud. He loved me, his mom, more than anything and our relationship was beyond close. Gunnar loved to ride motorcycles, quads and his pride and joy his Chevy Silverado.

Gunnar would do funny dances to make us laugh. Whenever he gave you a kiss he would have to give you three kisses.

I miss how much he loved me. I miss his big hugs and hearing him say Love You Mom, Love You Dad a hundred times a day

Gunnar was a loving, funny young man who only wanted to help someone who was in trouble. He loved his family more than anything

John “Jack” Dyer McDonough

Age 18
Son, Brother, Giver & Outdoor Enthusiast
Age 18
18

My only child, Jack, was the love of my life. He was a dedicated friend to many and could make me laugh even during the darkest of times. He was a hunter and fisherman; and an old soul who could carry on a conversation or debate with adults at a young age.

Kayaking up north and discussing his past & future. It’s a memory I hold close to my heart as we were able to be open and honest. Just the two of us on the lake, no distractions or influence from others.

I will miss Jack’s sense of humor, love and wit. And, his unique and forward-thinking ideas.

I believe Jack would like to be remembered as a loyal son and friend. He helped many in need or crisis while placing his own needs aside.
