Christian Ray Jones

Age 23
Son, Brother, Bringer of Laughs
Age 23
23

Christian was born to bring smiles to the faces of all he knew and it was a job he perfected up til the day he transitioned. He will always be known as someone who could make you laugh. His laugh was infectious. His heart is huge and he loved big.

Way too many but when he was learning to write his name he would always write Bob…it was easier to write and happened to be his favorite Papa’s name. Kindergarten screening day when asked to write his name, he wrote BOB. The lady administering the test really got a kick out of that.

His loving kindness, his huge heart. His smile and laugh. He gave the best hugs.

100% would want to be remembered as someone who was always there for people (and stray animals) in need.
He’s smiling now knowing people remember him as funny and always bringing joy everywhere he went.

Estil was my first born son who made me a mother. He was a very talented musician and tattoo artist.

When the doctors placed him in my arms. I was always told I would never have a child.

Him just being around. Him always joking around with everyone

As a musician and hard working man. And extreme Volkswagen fanatic and mechanic. He loved his 67 beetle.

Age 26

Kevin was funny, had a heart of gold, was a good son, brother and friend.

Kevin loved Halloween. One Halloween he dressed up in an ape costume and decided to ride his bike in the neighborhood and wave to everyone. The next minute my husband and I looked out the window and saw all the neighborhood children chasing him and screaming get the ape. He quickly rode his bike into the garage to escape from all the children.

everything, most of all his kindness and humor

A kind loving person and not a "drug addict"

Age 23

My precious son Christian was kind loving and generous beyond words. His brilliant smile bright as a star in the sky. He was the best friend anyone could have and absolutely knew no strangers. The sunshine of the family we are lost here without him.

There are entirely too many amazing memories to choose a favorite.

Full of love and laughter. Genuine and would literally do for others ALWAYS before himself. It's impossible to think of Christian without my heart swelling with love. Chris would want to be remembered as loyal to friends and family I believe. It's difficult to speak for him as he is full of such great spirit and that beautiful spirit lives on. I adore you my son. You are forever in my heart and you are the most wonderful son a mother could ever know. I am Blessed to be your momma.

Destinee was so Beautiful, smart and so artistic. she was so loving, caring & nurturing. She was the best big sister she was always eager to help anyone in need. she made me a very proud Single parent

Her singing to her little sister Delilah.
"Hey there Delilah"
Destinee started singing that song to her sister just days after I brought Delilah home from the hospital after she was born.

I miss everything about her. I miss her voice, her laugh, her personality
her sense of humor. She was so beautiful I was so proud and I couldn't wait to see the great things she would have done for this world as an adult. She had so much to offer she would have been her game changer that's for sure if she would have made it to her adult life

Vivacious, funny, beautiful, loving,caring,affectionate, kind, thats who Destinee was. Anything she set her mind to she achieved above and beyond. She was so smart. She was a straight A student & so artistic. she had a lot to offer

Ygnacio was the love of my life, we had three kids together, he was my protector,my rock, my everything. I miss, his smile, his laugh, his touch, his personality, our kids miss him tremendously. He had a big heart, always thinking of others.

I loved how he loved us, he told me he would die for me that's how much he loved me and the kids. I loved how he was so kind and generous. Accepting of others.

Everything...I miss every single thing about him.

For having great selflessness, for loving others for who they were and accepting them as they were and loving deeply. A beautiful,kind soul.

Hi! I have read many stories and even explored other websites for information on individuals I have read about and by know means read them all! Just enough for me to finally post. My brother not "technically deceased" but a anoxic Brain injury I learned what was later. Feels much worse then a death. Can't speak, eat, go bathroom, etc. Years of finding a place for him at different times. Several moves. My parents have been devastated. Not going into details but as everyone knows losing a child is devastating. And this one still here as a reminder with no quality of life. Deal with his care daily. Mind you we are so lucky the place we were able to get him into 4 plus years ago still there. The staff is amazing! And always hard to find help. Who would want to this kind of work! Cleaning and feeding the disabled? I still hate going there.

We were brothers and close til say Jr high area drift apart and then best friends and ran business together for years. And then I saw it coming and we tried

Well not his loud snoring /breathing as kids in a hotel room. But pretty much everything as someone that knew him 42 plus years going on 49

Still trying to figure that out being he still "alive"

Uncle, thank you for being my best friend.  Even on your bad days, you listen, gave me advice, and show so much love.  I know you struggled, but your smile always brought sunshine in the darkness.  So many judged you and I felt your pain but know you are forever in my heart!  Never forgotten.  My uncle was an awesome person, even in the mist of addiction he was always with a big smile and his hugs were always full of love. 

Ashley Martinson

Age 36
My beautiful daughter Ashley
Age 36

Some people have the ability to always see the beauty surrounding them and in others. Ashley was one of those people. She never ceased to acknowledge the beauty in people, even when they were at their worst. She always stopped to appreciate the sunset and to smell the roses! Ashley never shied away from an adventure that peaked her interest; however, she truly enjoyed the simplest pleasures in life. From cuddling with her sons, fishing with her fiancé, helping her nieces with their hair, craft projects, to a simple walk through the neighborhood, she paused and appreciated those moments. Ashley highly valued the simple pleasure of a conversation with a friend. She was consistently welcoming and available to lend an ear. Many felt comfortable talking to her about topics ranging from nothing in particular at all, to the meaning of life itself. If you were so lucky to discuss the meaning of life with her, you would know her meaning and purpose in life was family. Nothing made her smile shine brighter than having her family and friends together.

I have so many this is one that stands out. Every night saying good night mama! Love you!

Hanging out and talking, watch movies. Her incredible hugs!

Her love for God and non judgemental love she showed everyone. That she fought a good fight with her addiction.

Noah Ezra Wood

Son

Noah was an amazing person. He had a very loving heart and deep appreciation for life. Noah had addiction problems that he was not able to overcome. He maintained a positive relationship with his family and friends which we are very grateful for.

Noah laying on the bed talking to his mother while playing with the dog. Camping and fishing and just hanging out with him watching video's and talking about life.

His words of encouragement and ability to have unconditional love towards others. His huge loving heart.

Noah had a deep appreciation for life. He wanted to travel and was very smart. It hurt him that people looked at him and saw his addiction. He wanted people to understand that he was much more than that. Noah was so talented he loved to hunt and fish but he also loved to learn and travel. He wanted others around him to not be limited by dealing with his addiction. He wanted people to keep pushing themselves to be better and have a better life. This is what he was trying to do for himself.
