We lost our son to drugs. He struggled with the horrific disease of addiction. Many look down on addicts but the truth is they are someone's child, brother, sister, grand child or parent. Many feel it's a choice; maybe to start but it takes a hold of every part of your being! Just as people struggle with their weight, alcohol or even to stay away from gluten!

Devan was a very caring and lovable young man that thought he was invincible, as the young do! No shame, no hiding, no judgment. Our family has been fighting this along with him for a few years. We miss him so much. We are proud of what Devan has done in his life and the people he has touched. We hope that this loss can save even just one family from the same ending! Thank you, all who has loved him, tried to help him and will miss him as we do!
