In memory of James Giedd

Created by Family Of James Giedd

James Giedd

I could tell you many sad stories about my brother and his addiction, as well as my own, but I choose to remember the laughter and not the tears. The pain and heartbreak of just typing this little article makes me so sad that I physically feel my heart ache with emptiness. For that reason this will be short because I know he wouldn't like to see me suffer. When he died, I lost myself, for quite a long time. My mother will probably never be the same, and it deeply traumatized my entire family. All I can say is: Youare my friend! You are my baby brother and my only brother! I miss your laugh! I miss your funny sense of humor! There will always be a void in my life, and I will do my best to always fill it with fond memories of you, and I have many. This world is cruel and hard and I know you are finally happy and the demons of your addictions can't harm you anymore.I know when you are near and you help me through hard times. I love you James.

This Memorial was created to commemorate a loved one's life and to let other families know they can turn to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids for help when struggling with their son or daughter's substance use. Please consider sharing this page to increase awareness of substance use disorders and to provide hope and healing for others.
