Jamie was a young person full of life with a non-stop desire to be on the go. He loved going out with his friends, working with cars, skateboarding, playing sports, playing with computers and chillin'. He was on the track to success, excited to turn his life around, continue with schooling and eager to find a job in a tough economy. He even used to joke how one day he would make moremoney than his sister. Imagine that, he would say. In spite of all of this, Jamie, like other people who just wanted to try it once, fell to heroin addiction. He struggled for many years to start over and begin a new life, but the addiction must have been too strong. I can't believe that I won't see Jamie get married, have kids, or make more money than me. I can't believe that I won't be able to tell him to keep it down anymore. I can't believe I won't see his soft side, talking to Abby like she's his baby. He did not want to go, he was not ready. There are many lives in this country and in the world that are cut too short by this terrible drug. Please help us in stopping this from taking any more lives. We are asking everyone to join in the fight to creating a drug-free America. Your family, Abby, and your friends will never forget you. We will always miss you and we have missed you. We all love you so much.
