To my son Jonathan- August 27th will make three years since you left us. I hope you found your “Flying Lion” and watch over all of us who LOVE and MISS you!!!!!!!! Mom 143 xoxo My sweet son Josh, My heart breaks everyday without you. I have learned since your death that it was much more powerful than you could conquer on your own. He had such a great 2016 that I stopped waiting for the call. Can’t wait to see him on the other side when my time has come. He was found overdosed from hydromorphone September 25, 2018- our Mother’s birthday. The children called me (grandmother/mom) and said they could not wake up mommy and daddy. To deal with the pain he kept taking his meds, not realizing how much he was taking. We are “Families Fighting Addiction”, Our family lost Gregory Robert L. When I got the call that you was in the hospital because of your addiction to pills and alcohol my heart broke I was saddened and so lost just the very thought of losing you someone who with out a doubt for everyone who needed your regardless of what you was going through you was always there for everyone the doctors told us you was on the road to recovery and you would be home soon.
Everyday I think about you and how I wish you were still here. I know you didn’t want to die and wasn’t aware that horrible day on June 23 would be your last. I’ll get through this because I know we’ll all be together again for eternity. There are no words to explain the grief and horror I feel from losing my person. Remember drugs kill and leave behind tremendous sadness and PTSD. In a few months it will be 3 years since you’ve been gone from this world and moved on to everlasting peace. It still doesn’t help me from crying often and thinking of you every day, but it does help in some way. I love you always, and thank you for my dragonflies and butterflies that first summer 💜 Dear Sweet Julie, you are missed and loved everyday.

Than I left to get my daughters diaper bag restocked and a shower the phone than rang and at that moment I couldn’t breath I felt like I was going to pass out and was scared to answer the phone so the phone stopped ringing and than another call back to back until I answered it and it was your mother and sister saying you want going to make it that I had to get back up to the hospital to say my good-byes…
