CAUSES I CARE ABOUT..... CAUSES I VOLUNTEER FOR.... CAUSES I DONATE MY SERVICES TOO
CLACKAMAS COUNTY DRUG COURT GUEST SPEAKER AT GRADUATING CLASS OF 2014
A special thank You To Judge Katherine Steele, residing in Oregon City, Oregon
My son Christopher died of a Heroin Overdose on October 27,2012 . I will not feel shame about how my only child died... I will press on to help others and their families work through the hold this dreadful drug places on their loved ones, and most importantly themselves. For my grandchildren I do this. I volunteer, I attend, I speak out. The Honorable Judge Katherine Steele residing in the Oregon City, Oregon, attended my sons memorial service. I had absolutely no idea she was coming. It meant so much to me. My son was due to graduate from a year long drug program in January of 2013. He relapsed and died 3 months shy of graduation.... Judge Katherine Steele asked if I would be willing to address the graduating class from the view of a parent who's child did not make it. I welcomed the opportunity even though it was gut wrenching.
My son was found dead 78 days
He was truly looking forward
to coming back home
to live with his wife and precious
daughter once again.
OREGON CITY TOGETHER
