Travis Wagenfuehr

Age 30
Beloved son and brother
Age 30
30

Travis was handsome, brilliant and funny with beautiful eyes and a great smile.

He built a whole city in legos on his bedroom floor one summer, complete with all the usual buildings, police cars, traffic and an airport. I couldn’t vacuum his room for months. I thought he was so clever!

We miss everything about him. He is loved.

As the loving, caring, wonderful son, brother and friend he was - ready to help anyone who needed him.

Eric David Bishop

Age 37
Brother. Father, Best Friend
Age 37
37

Eric was an easy going, funny, smart, likable, gorgeous, artistic, cocky, crazy, fun to be around guy who adored his 2 daughters more than anything, loved meeting new people, partying, listening to music, playing video games.

There are too many to list. We lived together for a couple years. He was my BFF & Brother. I will miss him dearly. I still can't believe he isnt here. 😭💔

His gorgeous blue eyes, beautiful smile, annoying habits, crazy behaviours, munipulative mind games, distructive lifestyle, impulsive moves, attitude, perverted jokes, quick Witt, and most of all, the way he knew me better than any one else, even myself.
I miss my Soul Twin Dearly💔

As a good looking-smart ass who did what he wanted, when he wanted, wherever and he had the ability to convince or manipulate anyone into anything he wanted and was damn great at it and used this as his gift and weapon. He strived to be the best Dad he was capable of to his 2 daughters and loved being a full time dad. He would want them to know he tried & did the best he could. He is sorry he couldn't get better. He loves those girls more than anything. 💔

Alexandra Elizabeth Slane

Age 26
Daughter, Sister, Niece, Cousin, Friend Loved by all
Age 26
26

Alex would like to be remembered as someone who cared about helping others. She was convinced that God allowed this terrible disease to happen to her so that she would be able to use the experience to help others. She was an intelligent, gifted, spiritual woman, with a child's loving and trusting heart. She was a loyal friend and family meant the world to her. She loved making people laugh and she enjoyed life to the fullest degree.

Jody Lynn Yaple

Age 42
Mother,Daughter,Sister,loved,never forgotten.
Age 42
42

Beautiful,kind,intelligent Jody wanted the best for everyone. She loved her family,especially her children. She tried to find lasting recovery but stigma and shame would throw up roadblocks. I deeply regret that I didn't know then what I know now.

How much she desired connection with her family and how much she wanted to do better, be better, for her children. Her generous kind spirit, her strength.

I am going to miss seeing Jody in longterm recovery and all she would have become. Things are starting to shift around Harm Reduction and people can survive and live better lives if we open our minds and hearts. I'm going to miss getting to know her better and bonding with her and developing a closer relationship based on all I've learned on my journey of educating myself and advocacy/support for people who use drugs, those in recovery and anyone impacted by Substance Use Disorder.

First and foremost as a loving, concerned Mom... also as a person who cared about others and was compassionate, who was truly sorry for any harm she may have caused anyone and as a person who believed in and loved God. She would want people to educate themselves so they could understand the disease that she struggled with and ultimately took her life and they could then KNOW that it wasn't because she didn't try hard enough, didn't care enough, didn't love them enough, it was the disease.

Jesse Kite

Age 21
Son,Brother,Grandson,Great Grandson, Godson
Age 21

He was always so happy so full of life and just loved family.

The way he would always play jokes on everyone and thought it was sooo funny.

His laugh and his hugs.

As someone that loved family and loved when we all got together and would get along and laugh together

Dale Michael Zopf

Age 59
Brother, Uncle, Heart of Gold
Age 59
59

Dale was my younger brother who put everyone above himself. He never had children of his own but was active helping other kids including ones he never met. Dale was one of the three brothers I had and the last to leave our world. My heart is forever broken.

My favorite memory of him was telling me he loved me.

I will miss talking to him. I will miss seeing him at family get togethers.

Dale would like to be remembered as someone who tried to make a difference in someone's life.

Tiffany L Lash

Age 34
The Keeper of Childhood Memories
Age 34
34

Tiffany struggled with alcoholism for many years. Though she was in a constant struggle with the disease, her passion did not dwindle and her sober times made us extremely proud of her fight.

Her organizing her sisters and cousins to put on shows for us. She remembered everything about her childhood and was known for her love of all things Disney.

She was a fighter, and she fought alcoholism and we witnessed her take the disease head on and even overcame it time and time again. She continued to fight in what became an unbeatable battle that eventually took her short life at age 34. We find comfort in knowing she is no longer struggling and is at peace, but know this fight continues for so many. However, we miss the "hope" for her to win the battle as that is no longer an option.

Tiffany loved dancing, softball, cheerleading, swimming and water. She loved the warm sand cool waves in Nags head and Ocean City where she had countless memories with her sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.

Nick was a funny outgoing person who always lit up the room. We had to beautiful baby girls who were is everything. They were only 1 1/2 and 6 months old when he died. He was an amazing father for the very short time he got to be one

He was always cracking jokes and trying to make people laugh

Watching him be a father, his cooking and most of all the love he had for our family

John Richard Page

Age 33
Son, brother, uncle, artist
Age 33
33

John was a all of energy from day one, we fought like crazy… but loved even harder… we were all one another had. I am lost without my brother

When John locked me in the trunk our mom has in the living room
And FINALLY he got in trouble!!

His dedication, his deep rooted knowledge of right from wrong, good from bad… that’s what made it so difficult for John to recover..without professional support he felt to much pain

As the smart, multi talented, handsome, funny, slightly controlling man he was.

Age 40
40

my brother was the most caring and kindest guy u would ever known. His contagious laugh would make you smile no matter what kind of day you were having. He was my little bro and will be missed and loved forever♡

I have sooo many but just recently last summer we took a ride to Hubbard Park and parked on side of the bridge for like 3 hours we talked,laughed and cried that day. I am so grateful for that memory.

His laugh and the only one who ever called me jenny.

He was a loving and positive soul. He fought his addiction every single day wether he was clean or using. He hated this drug and I know he is now at peace.

Adam Carlton Paxton

Age 31
Son, brother, intelligent, beautiful, wickedly funnny
Age 31
31

He was amazingly smart, funny, caring, insightful and unique. I will miss him always.

He had a girlfriend in high school that I just didn’t like and it dawned on me, for the first time, that I may not like or get along with whoever he married. I shared that thought with him…and he responded “but Mom, don’t you think if I love them you’ll love them too?” I told him I had always thought that would be so but I just I didn’t love “Brooke” his current girlfriend….he lit up with a huge grin and replied “me neither!”

His humor and his hugs.

As kind and generous.

Age 23
23

Kind to everyone he met with a heart for Jesus! Loved unconditionally...

His sweet and kind spirit

Hearing " I love you" and his hugs!

As a man with a different spirit and one who enjoyed sharing God with whomever he could.

Dalton Robert Mulkey

Age 24
Daddy of 2, full of life
Age 24
24

He had such a sense of humor. He had motivation and drive, he could and would accomplish anything he set his mind to. He had everyone’s best intentions at heart. That’s before we lost him to addiction.

Starting my first job, he trained me as a biscuit maker @ Hardee’s. Creating a family and a life, learning adulthood together.

His sense of humor. How he didn’t meet a stranger, he was instantly loved by all who met him.

As a good dad, a good person.

Jim Patrick Troilo

Age 32
Son, Brother, Father, Husband
Age 32
32

Jim never went anywhere without meeting a new person. His smile lit up his eyes. His little boy giggle continued into adulthood.
His love for his family was great but it was his love for his son that was pure.

His smile, the way he twirled his hair.

Haha! I miss his smelly socks! But most of all his excitement when he found something he wanted to share.

His genuine interest in others.

Cory Michael Watson

Age 24
Brother
Age 24
24

My brother cory was the most genuine yet misunderstood soul I was so lucky to grow up being protected by. He had a heart of gold and a soul of fire. There isn’t a day where my heart feels okay without him here with us. We are broken forever.

Too many favorite memories, I miss most hearing him laugh and making goofy jokes everyday. His personality was so pure and unique, little did he know that he deserved the universe and more. He inspired me to stop caring what people think, just to be myself and live by that unapologetically. He had no idea what an inspiration he was to me my whole life. He saved my life as a baby and again 13 years later, and still does today even on the other side. The only reason I kept going was for him.

I miss his hugs, his smile and beautiful eyes. I remember the heartache and pain just looking at him. I wish i could have showed him how special he was to my family and I. I miss him doing dumb crazy things just to get a laugh out of me, and I miss him threatening every person he knew wasn’t needed in my life. He was always right, and he always knew what was best for me. I miss the protection he gave me, the security, the love. I miss our cries together and I miss our laughs. I miss him more.

Remember him as the stud he was. The ladies man, but also with a heart of the purest gold. The person who would never hesitate to go out of his was for the people he loved. Never was a force to be reckoned with. My Cory, you were and always will be the light of my life and my inspiration to stay sober. I know you were in pain, so..so much pain. All we want is for you to be okay today. Please continue to watch over my soon to be son, as I know he would be so utterly loved by you. I love you.

Sabrina Ann Smith

Sister,heart as big as ky
Age 42

I NEVER thot there was anything that would take her away. She NEVER knew real love she lived her life on earth in domestic violence everyday he tried many times to kill her but God kept her here and then on this day an addiction to pain pills took her away

She always enjoyed holidays. She would go over board and beyond for everybody she knew. She NEVER let anybody go hungry she always made sure ppl had food

Being able to text her everyday even tho she wouldn't answer for days on end at least I knew she was on the other end of the phone....

She only wanted to be loved and appreciated.... Remember her big heart and how she always wanted to make ppl laugh....

Jon Austin Cheatham

Age 26
Courageous, Honest, Believer, Handsome and Irreplaceable.
Age 26
26

Austin was determined, strong, handsome, stubborn and a strong believer. He stood by anyone or anything he felt strongly about. He was eager to make a life that had meaning. He loved hard. He was selfless and willing to do whatever for our family.

Austin struggled with a lot of demons on daily basis. I watched him learn patience & be a father to my daughter, I watched him change from someone who had past mistakes defining them to someone who had fought to get limitless opportunities. He got his dream job. He got his biggest catch aired on a news station along with his picture. He got to watch his son being born. He always wanted to make his Mom&Grandparents proud&he did. Witnessing him achieve all this was something I’ll always remember.

His love. Once you got to understand him for everything he was. It just all clicked. He would go to war for the ones he loved. Fishing just isn’t the same without him. He was the fisherman for sure and he enjoyed it. He was my safe place that feeling of home. I never not one day doubted he loved me. He brought that drive out in me. He saw all I could be and wanted it for me. He was my soul mate and I will miss everything about him and us. Austin is irreplaceable in all of his loved ones life’s.

I want him remembered for who he was, what he lived for. The good days. The times he was there for you. The times he made you laugh. The times he cried with you. The short time he fought with determination to make something of himself. I want Austin remembered for who he was on the inside.. No one is a saint we’re all sinners. He is no different. His death shall not be in vain. He was a son, grandson brother, cousin, nephew, husband, father. He was ours and he was someone worthy someone special.

Age 32

My little sister had a heart of gold, she loved animals just as much as her family and friends. She would do anything for anyone. She had demons, just like everyone else, but she fought them for years and then they won. I miss her more than anything.

My favorite memories are many but the one that sticks out the most was the night we were just driving around and laughing, and we seen a sign for R&R's BBQ, and we stole it to give to my best friend who we called R&R. And Robbie still has the sign today.

EVERYTHING!!!!💯💗💓💕💖💚❤️🧡🎼🎼🎼

For how much she loved her daughter Alice.
