Tributes to lost loved ones
To my dear precious son, Ryan Taylor Moore, you've been gone less than two weeks today. I was on the way to take you back to rehab and you got out of my car and said you couldn't put your life on on hold and wanted to live a normal life. Well precious baby, you are now living more than a normal life, you are in the arms of Jesus. You were kind, big hearted, huge smile and such a tender mess. I prayed and prayed for God to deliver you and give you peace. He did, just not my plan. Your precious Madi and Amanda will always forever love you, as will your MJ and PD. We fought the hardest battle together right until the end, but heroin, like any other demon gets its stronghold and there are just no other words to say, other than I loved you, I'll love you forever, and I know I went down fighting harder than ever. I'll always wonder what more I could have done, but in the end, you are at peace and no longer fighting a fight that was already won at Calvary. You were my special needs kid and I wouldn't trade one second that I spent trying to love you and save you. May you rest in peace in Jesus loving arms. In memory of my son, Ryan Taylor Moore, April 3, 1993 - August 11, 2017........Raleigh, NC

Remembering my son Davey Gonzales. 01-02-1984 to 08-09-2014. Davey had two severe injuries that lead to drug addiction. However, he detoxed as he didn't want to be dependant any longer. It took him eight days to feel normal again. He was happy, free, and returned to work. That night changed his life forever...he went to a store and was a victim of a crime of gun violence and was shot in the head. This lead to serious drugs being administered, a loss of an eye, sinus cavity, and broken jaw. Once he started recovering physically with more surgeries ahead, he was once again drug addicted and suffered from PTSD and depression as a result of this incident. Davey overdosed and is now gone. Those of us that are left behind...well we are forever changed and miss him dearly. So please reach out and just listen or guide someone towards help/treatment. This may be the change someone needs.
Dear Anthony , i miss you so much, not a day goes by that i'm not thinking of you and the great times we had together . You may not be here with me but the memories i have with you will never go away ....love & miss youPosted 07/03/2019

For my dear brother who lost his battle to heroin on 9/18/16, I talk about you everyday, sometimes I try to share your story in hopes of helping another so nobody else has to know this heartbreak like my family does.
I love you, and I can only wait to see you again.
