I am the mother of Stephanie, my beloved daughter, who died from a very serious bacterial blood infection due to IV heroin and cocaine addiction. I believe, if circumstances had been different, my daughter would be alive today, and free of heroin and cocaine...and leading a happy and more normal life. Due to the serious nature of my daughter's death, I never got to say goodbye while she was still alive, and she was on life support before she died.

I am also the daughter of Ruth Sweet, my beloved mother who I miss very much. She was the sweetest and kindest mother! My mom was very sick before she died, and I didn't know it at the time, but she had a fatal form of cancer. I never got to say goodbye to my mother, either. When I got the phone call to get to the hospital immediately, by the time I got there, it was too late!

I am a Christian woman and live in Portland, Oregon. I still have a son, Sean, whom I love very much. I can't even begin to tell you how my life has changed since I lost my mother and my daughter. I lost my daughter, Stephanie, on September 5, 2000, and my mother, Ruth, on December 21, 1999. They will always be remembered and forever loved.
Hugs & God Bless
