In memory of Brad Newsome

Created by Family Of Brad Newsome

Brad Newsome

Brad was the love of my life. After about 10 years apart, we were reunited. We were married and started a life together. I gave birth to our miracle son on August 26th 2005. It was a wonderful shocking gift that God gave us. We were in love and we were happy. We created a son together, and to say the least I couldn't have been happier. I had everything I ever needed and wanted. Then, on November 3, 2006, I told my husband I was going to get us breakfast at a local restaurant. When I left, he was still lying in bed. When I returned 1 hour later, he was still in bed. I went to wake him and he wasn't breathing. I panicked. I did CPR and mouth-to-mouth until the ambulance came with no response. I arrived at the hospital with the ambulance and they tried to revive him for an hour. They came and told me, “Mam, I am sorry. We tried, he is gone." All I could do is scream and scream. Needless to say, that is the day I lost my life and lost any chance of happiness. For without him, I don't want to live.

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.
