Christopher was the most kindhearted gentle soul, who put others first. Christopher was loyal and loving to those he loved and was trustworthy.He had character and integrity.He was so smart that he figured out the stock market and became a day trader.

There are many great memories of Christopher. My favorite memory of Christopher occured when he was young. I took him on a trip to the arcades in Elizabeth, NJ. He enjoyed every single moment playing all of the games and even learned to play pool.

Chris was not just my nephew. He was someone with whom I could talk to about anything and know I was never being judged. He accepted and loved me, no matter what. I trusted with my secrets and my struggles. I will miss his smile and humor and hearing about his dreams. I will miss hearing him say, "Hey Aunt Mary".But most of all, I will miss having one of the kindest, most giving and loving people I've known in my life!

Not as a "drug addict", because a disease does not define a person, any more than it does a person who has struggled with Cancer. Christopher will be remembered for the beautiful person he was and the lives he touched. He was a fighter of this disease, but also a victim and casualty to the opioid epidemic. This epidemic continues to steal the precious lives of our loved ones. We all must stand together to fight this common enemy until there are NO MORE innocent victims! I miss and love you!

Joey was full of life, light and love. He was smart-too smart, I thought he would change the world. He had a captivating smile, a natural leader. The sparkle in his eye would light up a room, his quick wit made sure you knew he was two steps ahead.

He was my everything. Made me a mom. Memories of his laugh, his eyes and joy keep me going now. He saved a hummingbird, loved his dog, enjoyed swimming and was a beach bum at heart. He wrote amazing stories and loved his video games. He was always up to something. He wanted everyone to be happy. Hated to disappoint or have anyone upset with him. I adored him and the first time he winked at me, to get out of something I am sure - we both laughed that he thought that would work. (but it did)

Hearing his voice calling me ma, mom, or even mama. Hugging him. And of course that smile and twinkle in his eye.

He tried and fought his addiction with everything he had. Over and over again. He searched for love and acceptance and struggled with guilt which fueled his depression and addiction. He was his own worst enemy. He was not weak or lazy. He was a fighter. But, overcoming addiction is HARD. He was always good enough - he just never believed it.

What I wouldn't give to have 1 more day with her. She was a spunky, caring a d very driven girl who loved hard when she loved. She thought of herself as an outside, however, she was nothing of the sort. I wish she knew her worth before her passing because if she had known how much we all valued her, maybe then she'd still be here.

When she came to visit me at work when I was on work release from prison. It was the first time we had really hung out outside of being incarcerated together images remember thinking after she left like geez that was the first time that we've hung out and just being so happy that the one person that I really admired that I met during my time was actually starting to form a really good friendship outside of jail I miss her so fucking much I need her so bad right now

Not having her to help me through tough times, not seeing her amazing smile, never hearing her call me 'hjelle bean' again.

She probably wouldn't . That was just her mentality...

Tiffany was more then a sister to me. She was a legend. She was one of the strongest most selfless women I have ever met. She touched every single person she came in contact with and she loved endlessly. She was the light of so many peoples lives.

Her energy, her love, the way she made everyone around her feel seen and valued. She loved everyone no matter where they were from. She would give the shirt off her back. And she would made sure you smiled even on the worst of days.

Her best friend will be opening up a half way house but I would like to fundraise for mothers in recovery. Tiffany got pregnant while she was on methodone and when she passed away from a fentanyl overdose she left behind a beautiful baby boy.

Darshan Subi Jawanda

Age 61
The most loving Father
Age 61

International Kabaddi player Darshan Singh "Subi" Jawanda was born in Jakhepal, Punjab India on February 25, 1960. He was the husband of Lajveer Kaur and a loving Father to two children, Joty Kaur Jawanda and Sky Singh Jawanda. He was known as one of the best Kabaddi players of his time. He started playing Kabaddi in 5th grade and overtime became the best stopper in all of Punjab. Mardi Sahib is the one that helped him achieve his skills to become the best kabaddi player. His first year in Jalandhar Sports College as a Kabaddi player, he placed first in the Bathinda Championship. There he was given the title "Punjab's Hero." Jalandhar Sports College was established in 1960, since then there had never been anyone to place first place in Punjab until Subi. He then played Kabaddi all around India and remained number 1. He was guaranteed 10-15 stops a match. That's when he was given the nickname "Subi" meaning "rope". His grip was equivalent to a rope. It was said that once he got a hold of his opponent with one hand, there was no letting go. In 1981, Subi was selected to represent Punjab for a tournament in Canada in 1981. He then migrated to New York and took over USA. He was the youngest among his colleagues to play Kabaddi in the US, but that didn't stop him from becoming the best.

While living in New York, Subi married Lajveer Kaur in January 1988. Over 6 years had two loving children. Subi was determined to make his children love sports just as he did. His children remember him as an extremely funny, caring and loving person. He really really loved his children and never failed to show that. They loved him very much also. Everyone loved being around him. He was a pure soul who always had good intentions. He loved wearing hats, you could never catch him without one. He was always styling with new clothes and shoes. He also loved making songs out of any situation, I low key think he wanted to be a singer. His voice was also distinct, you could hear it from a mile away and you knew who that voice belonged to. He got to spend his last good years with his nephew Charanjeet Singh Brar and family. They loved him deeply and took care of him. He spent his last few breaths at their home on March 14, 2021 in Des Moines, Washington. He will truly be missed by many all around the world. They say legends never die and Subi was a Legend.

My favorite memory of my Dad was when he would get ready he would come stand in front of me and my mom so we could compliment him. He would put his hand on his hips and look to the side. It was cute.

Everything. Especially the way he would make all of us laugh.

As the best Dad to his two kids.

Larry loved music and his job as a stagehand. He spent most of his life in addiction and died due to an overdose. His family loves and misses him dearly. To any  person who suffers from addiction, there is another way to life in recovery. You don't have to do this alone.

Andre Gomez

Age 22
Brother, Gorgeous smile, lovable, Kind
Age 22

One of a kind. He could walk into a room and charm everyone. His smile was contagious and he loved his family. He was kind and thoughtful. He was not afraid to show his emotions and ask for help. He wanted to find happiness and he had goals.

My favorite memory was my last trip home to North Carolina in which I introduced him to his niece and we all bonded. I saw him in the role of the older uncle who was trying to give advice to his teenage niece. We all laughed and cried together. He made such a big impact on my daughter, that as she started boot camp at the Army, she made the comment that she is doing it for her and her uncle Andre. His life was cut short but his memory is always with us. We carry him in our hearts.

His voice and his laugh. The way he made us feel. He loved us so much.

As a person full of passion and willing to experience life at its fullest. Lovable and devoted to family.

My Brother Ricky had a heart of GOLD & a smile that would immediately light up a dark room. He was a giver to all that came into his life and always made sure everyone that you were taken care of before he took care of himself. He was the BEST!

The best memories I have of my brother were his cooking skills. He would whip up anything in the kitchen and it turned out to be AMAZING! If you had a bad day or were exhausted he would cook you a meal that made it all better. My brother Ricky was the reason my son was reading K-1st grade books at the age of 2 1/2 that's how amazing of a man he was

HIS SMILE! I will miss that glistening smile and big, huge bear hugs he would give! MY brother knew when you needed that special hug and smile from him. Even when he wasn't around he sensed that you needed that little text that said "LOVE YOU" and he continued though's all the way up to his last days here on earth

Caring, Loving & a man of GOD who loved to dedicate his life to helping others even though he couldn't help himself. He was a fighter and he tried his best

Joey will forever be my little brother. We'd fight like the best of them, but we always had limitless love for each other.

I saw so much love in Joe's eyes for my daughter, and I will miss most watching him grow into an uncle.

He would like to be remembered on his best days, clear-headed. He was a very kind and loving person, and extremely hard-working. It didn't come out very often, but I will choose to remember his smile, when he was the happiest.

Amber was a vibrant, courageous, & beautiful woman. She was a dental hygienist who graduated with honors, and had many academic and athletic accomplishments. But truth is, if you were to ask her, she’d tell you her greatest accomplishment would be the 3 incredible children she brought into this world. She was brave & bold & unforgettable.

Her laugh, and the way she could brighten any room she walked into. I miss her telling me everything would be okay, I miss being loved by her.

For being unafraid of what others thought and daring to be her authentic self in a world full of judgement. She was always so happy and she made everyone around her so happy. And hopefully one day she’ll be remembered for being a part of changing the world and ending the opioid crisis.

He always had the best stories to tell and he would make me laugh like it was no one’s business. His smile was everything! I loved his sexy lips. His hair was gorgeous and being in his embrace was the best place to be in the world.

Our first kiss because it was the day I told him that I loved him. He didn’t believe me and told me I shouldn’t say things I don’t mean. I was hurt by his comment and went to the bathroom because I got emotional. When I came out he was there waiting for me and we kissed. It was so magical and I knew in that moment he loved me too. I replay that moment again and again in my head.

Talking endlessly about everything under the sun and moon.
His warm hugs and kisses.
His smile and laughter.
His essence.

Trans, Black, and Proud.
