In memory of Frankie Mirabella

Created by Family Of Frankie Mirabella

Frankie Mirabella

Frankie was introduced to marijuana when he was in junior high and he liked it. Frankie had learning disabilities as well as Tourette's syndrome. He was a big, good looking guy, therefore, you couldn't tell that there was a lot of pain going on inside.

Drugs made him feel normal. He graduated to much harder drugs in high school but mom and dad kept thinking he would grow out of it. Dad was very successful in his business so money was no problem when he needed to be bailed out of his trouble or sent to another rehab.

Many rehabs later, Frankie, now 38 and his pain is not any better. After being clean for 8 months he wanted to ease his pain one more time but this time his body couldn't withstand the strong dose that he was used to and there wasn't anyone there to call for help.

Frankie was a precious sweet child in a man's body and we loved him unconditionally. He will forever be missed.


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.
