We are remembering our son Joe as the caring, loving and fun man he was. He would help anyone and he loved his family! He struggled for many years with substance abuse, mostly self medicating because of internal struggles he had. He always knew he was loved unconditionally by his family. We miss his smile, his laugh and mostly his huge presence he was in our family. He’s at peace now and isn’t struggling any more.
We miss you and love you Joe 11/8/1994~10/4/2017
If you love some one with substance use its a hard road for them and us but, always let them know they are loved and that every day is a new day. And for those in recovery I want to say “Keep fighting for your recovery every day, its worth it because you are worth it”
