In memory of RJ Zwaan

Created by Family Of RJ Zwaan

RJ Zwaan

My son was a typical teenager, popular, gifted, smiling, always willing to go stand up for any one of his friends or put a smile on someone's face when they were sad.He didn't have amean bone in his body.

He went to a friends house one night, drank like the rest of them, came home and fell asleep. His friends all woke up the next morning. He never did. He had his whole life ahead of him. He was smart, but also 17-years-old. I think if he would have known that mixing alcohol, percocet and suboxone would kill him -- he would have thought twice. He volunteered to come home from the job he was starting the next day and mow the lawn. That never happened. The last words I said to him were I love you and I'll see you tomorrow.

Our lives will never be the same again.

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.
