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 Deanne Hirst

Age 27
Mother, Sister, Bigger than life
Age 27

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.

Dre was hilarious. He kept everyone laughing no matter how he was feeling inside. His daughters were his heart. He loved them more than words can explain. He wanted everyone to be happy and turnt up all the time.

His laugh, his smile, HIM! He had an infectious laugh and an amazing smile. His brilliant mind. His demeanor and personality. I miss everything about him. He was always dancing or rapping. He always wanted to have fun and joke. He loved pranking whoever was in the line of fire. The way he could make something out of nothing. He had so many talents and could do anything he tried to do. His capabilities were endless.

As "That Guy". That guy that would make you laugh uncontrollably. That guy who would stay up all night helping you with your homework because you had an exam the next day. That guy who could build anything. That guy who loved his family. That guy that made my world brighter and touched the hearts of everyone he came in contact with. He was "That Guy".

Keenan was very caring to everyone. His fellow workers loved him. We were amazed by his intelligence and drumming abilities! He has many family and friends that miss him dearly! He gave the GREATEST bear hugs!

It was so fun when he was making everyone laugh with his excellent improvisational abilities. He had everyone laughing his last Christmas with us, talking about the amazing "patina" of his junky van!

I miss his wonderful conversations, his bear hugs, and his Mother's day cards he picked especially for me.

He would like to be remembered as a very intelligent, caring person. He would like people to remember his unique taste in music and his abilities to create music. He would like everyone to know he was a respectful and loving son. He wanted people to know the strength of his character and that he was Unique! One of a kind!

Ryan Jacob Koch

Age 35

Ryan loved everyone and made it his goal to make everyone around him feel loved! He went out of his way to make your day better.

When Ryan lived in California he flew home to surprise me for my birthday. We were at the annual family reunion when a car pulled up to the park and out jumped Ryan! And when for Christmas he had a Cheese Cake Factory cheesecake flown in from Chicago. Or when we were at the HOM store and he was dancing in the aisles as we looked at rugs - he needed a new rug for his new apartment. There are so many memories.

I miss all of him. His smile, his positive outlook, his love of life.

THE BEST Brother, Son, Friend
Age 23

Patrick always had your back. He never had a bad word to say about anyone and always lit up the room when he walked in.

There are so many. When he was 2yrs old we were on a convention in Miami. He would say it’s Miami not your ami. Too cute.

Everything. He was always happy and encouraging to be with.

He was humble so he would like to be remembered as a good son, brother and hard worker which he was all of these but because of his addiction he never really felt it.
