Megan liked to act like she was tough but she worried and cared about everyone. She was kind and generous and a really great Mom.

My favorite memory was seeing her with her baby son and how proud she was and the love in her eyes.

I miss Megan every hour of every day. She always checked on me and cared how I was doing even though she had issues to attend to. She was a wonderful daughter.

Megan would like to be remembered as fun-loving and someone who lived life on her own terms.

Desiree was hilarious, loyal and beautiful. She was my best friend since I was 13. She was good mom and an amazing friend.

There are too many to count. We spent half our lives together. I think the day I met her is my favorite memory of her. Within 3 days of knowing each other she basically lived with me and my family.

I miss her laugh, her sense of humor and everything about her.

Although she was taken too soon, she saved many lives by being an organ donor. She was one of the funniest people I ever met and she loved her children with ferocity.

Michael “Mikey” Emile Wofford

Age 25
Mikey was the People's Champ
Age 25
25

All it took was one moment of breathing the same air to fall in love with Mikey.  His mere presence touched others in a way that was extraordinary; it was as if he knew how to comfort your heart without you ever revealing why it was unsettled in the first place. You laughed, you marveled, you shook your head, and then you wanted more!  He was the purest source of light, that emanated from a spirit who found true joy in being a real friend, without expecting anything in return.   

For most of us, it was being on the receiving end of that infectious smile that gave him the ability to light up a room and warm your heart, and if you were on the receiving end of his "I love you more" goodbye, you knew you were blessed.  

Because he offered himself so honestly, his spirit indiscriminately reached unsuspecting people, regardless of their walk of life.  He shined during those random interactions, they were his muse/thing...there are now some vacant corners in the hearts of '25 years’ worth of fellow travelers, beneficiaries of his accepting, loving light.  For this truly incalculable segment of the population, we are left with memories of a gifted kid, whose invocation manages yet to still bear its trademark fruit -  joy, incredulity, laughs, hope... we remain still yearning for more. 

For those, even the luckier ones who got to ALSO know Mikey, the man - confidante, inspiration, partner - there is no substitute.  No replacement for the role he selflessly embraced in our lives.  There is only the consolation that he is now being rewarded for his unconditional service and love to us with eternal peace.

Mikey would like to be remembered as someone who loved without condition and tried every day to share that love with his family, friends, and strangers. 

We are deeply touched by the outpouring of love and overwhelming support of family and friends.  Gifts made in loving memory of Mikey have enabled a donation of $57,767.60 to Shatterproof. We know for certain that each of your gifts will impact the lifesaving work and programs of Shatterproof - ultimately reversing the addiction crisis that we each know all too well.

He was so loving and could make the hardest days better with just a look. The love of my life. A great father the man that gave me our daughters. I'll forever hold you in my heart. Till we meet again my love. Always forever baby. Miss you so much 💞

When you would play with the kids teaching them to build things change a tire play baseball and always making us laugh. Always taking care of us making sure we had everything we needed.

Your smile the way you could tell what was on my mind and I didnt have to say a word the way youd hold me tight when you hugged me and the way you would write on the kids face to get them to fall asleep and how you made us feel so safe. Your touch your smell and my god your kiss. The way you walked. The way you would pick us flowers every time you found one. You was an amazing person so talented and smart God got a angel and I got a broken heart. I love you Gary Cardwell always an forever

As a father a painter and my best friend the love of my life. He was always looking out for us and adored his kids all 3 of them. They was his world as he was alsocours

Freda Jeanette Goode

Age 52
Mom,Grandma, Sister, Aunt and definitely one of a kind
Age 52
52

She was a sweet simple soul. She loved kids. Kids loved her and were comfortable around her. So much empathy that she was often taken advantage of by other people.

There are too many memories. I miss the advise and motivational talks given in a way only she could deliver.

I miss her voice. I miss her singing and dancing through the house while she cleaned. Her energy in general is so dearly missed

She would want people to know she never did "drugs" she took prescriptions that caused her to become addicted. Being left to manage your pain with morphine for 10 years in lue of a surgery by her insurance company. Guess it was cheaper for her to die than for insurance to pay for the procedure
