Not sure what to say?

What a beautiful obituary for a beautiful girl. I, too, lost my handsome smart son to addiction when he was 46 to an accidental overdose of fentanyl, crystal meth, .
percocets. He was the love of my life, having him when I was only 20. I went through the ups and downs of having an addict for a child, and then getting the call from a police officer on November 7, 2012. To think I will never see him again, hug him again, hear his voice say, "HI Mom", again is at times...

Another beautiful gift sent to Heaven....

Hi....I just wanted to say that I'm very sorry for your loss.. I can feel your pain even though I've never met your daughter simply because I too have recently lost my 20 year old daughter in the same manner.... I pray that you are able to survive this tragedy. Who knows...Maybe Casey and Alysa are dancing in Heaven!!! Brenda

I've posted here before, but I recieve notifications with each new entry in Casey's memory book.
I love to see the messages of hope and positivity that people leave for your family. In reading these messages it is clear that Casey's death is not in vain. It has created a dialogue for many, It has given people a voice and the courage to fight another day or to set their pride aside and ask for help. Thank you again for your honesty and for sharing Casey's life story with us.

As the mother of two children who struggle with addiction, and a facilitator of a support group for people with loved ones suffering with this vicious disease, I thank you with my whole heart for your extraordinary honesty and your selflessness in your time of grief!
God bless your precious daughter and may time and positive energy from those you have touched bring you some measure of comfort.

so very sorry on the loss of your beautiful daughter. God bless her and grant her eternal rest.

`I am so sorry for your loss. I am a drug/alcohol therapist and trainer, meaning I teach other d/a therapist, probation/parole officers, teachers, etc. It would be my pleasure and honor if I could use your "Honest Obit." in my counseling and trainings. So I am asking for permission to do so. If would help spread the devastation of addiction.

Thank you,

Bruce Schaffer
