"I want You to be strong within me. Forgive me Father for I have sinned. I\'m asking You God, give me strength to fulfill your word. I need help. I want You in my heart where ever I go. Shield me from evil. Give me life. I\'m not truly happy without You." "Life\'s too short to not do the things you love. Sometimes the worst thing is the best thing. It shows you reality." "Life is full of ups and downs. How you deal with downs will prepare you to do well." "Even though I was doing wrong. Let me heal O Lord. Give me life. Show me the way." "You don\'t always get what you want. But if you try, sometimes, you get what you need." "I asked, if there is a God show me! This prayer felt strong in my heart. I trusted in You. You didn\'t let me down." "Let me clear my head. Rest my eyes. Bless my family and friends. Because they got me. "No worries mate". Let Your light shine. God bless."

Evan Robert Block

8/20/1995 - 11/8/2013

Substance Use Disorder:Heroin Overdose


Evan Robert Block passed away November 8 at his home in Everett, Washington. He was 18 years old.
Evan was born August 20, 1995. It was a time of great joy. He attended Serene Lake Elementary, Voyager Middle School, Mariner High School and most recently ACES High School, where he looked forward to graduating next June.
From the moment he could speak, Evan was making plans. As a toddler he would call his Grandma or Grandpa Block asking to spend the night... the phrase quickly became part of the family vocabulary. Often he would call to have bedtime stories read to him over the phone.
Family was important to Evan. Like many older brothers, Evan enjoyed teasing his sisters. However, as they grew up - and especially over the last four months - Evan made a conscious effort to be a kind and loving brother. He wanted to become a better role model to his sisters.

Evan loved snow boarding with his best friend David, playing basketball, football, and working out. Evan was handy at fixing things and he was a good cook. Recovery had made Evan happier these last four months and he showed it with his kindness. He helped a lot of people with their own recovery. Recently, Evan was volunteering in Edmonds serving dinner to the homeless he said enjoyed this because he felt like he was helping others. His friends have also shared that he was always smiling and encouraging them to graduate.

Evan's road was not always a smooth one but in spite of the obstacles he faced, Evan maintained his love of making plans and a positive outlook on life. Last summer, during his stay at Sundown M Ranch he was given an assignment asking him to share 10 attributes or characteristics which he felt would best describe him. The list below is what he shared - he kept this in his room after he came home. For those who knew him best, these ten words accurately and eloquently depict Evan's personality and spirit.
1. Intelligent 6. Sincere
2. Loving 7. Outgoing
3. Caring 8. Positive Attitude
4. Open-Minded 9. Observant
5. Willing 10. Patient
Sincere thanks to family, friends, classmates, teachers and school administrators who have offered their love and support during this difficult time. Evan's death at such a young age is a tragedy, yet his memory will resonate with us forever.

A father, brother, son and friend! Wendell resided in Middletown Ohio. He lost the battle to substance use on November 2, 2013.I met Wendell at Celebrate Recovery. I saw and could relate to the disease of addiction that plagued us. Yet I do believe Wendell truly wanted to win the fight. I saw many times - tears fillied in his eyes as he did his best to fight this addiction. RIP Brother! No more struggles!Ron W.

25I NBOme A Research Chemical - died from first time.

Montana Sean Brown, age 15, passed away on Saturday Morning December 14, 2013 in Frisco, Texas.

Montana, son. . . I miss you so much, I love you so much, I saw so much of myself in you, my personality, my humor, everything about you was so much like me growing up. And, because of that, I was hard on you. . . I tried so hard to protect you. . . To focus your energy (which was boundless) in healthy directions, to make good decisions and choices, which you did the majority of the time. . . You were always so honest and sincere yet funny and mischievous. Remember how I told you that whether you wanted to be or not that you are a leader. . . that you had to use your powers and influence to channel things in the right direction rather than sew anarchy and chaos? You were an unstoppable force of nature, you did not accept that something could not be done or "no" for an answer. . . you always kept trying either by reasoning, discussing, arguing, charming, negotiating, or ignoring to get what you wanted. I really thought in the last six months, where we have spent so much time together, during "Daddy lockdown" that we were making some real progress. . . I so wish I could have protected you from this. I really thought I was doing all the right things to do that. I have so much guilt and anger over having been out of town, like I provided the forum for you boys to get into this trouble. . . I am so sorry for my part in this. You were a character. . . the stories I am hearing from your friends and brothers about the crazy fun things you did and the memories of our own fun times and even hard times. . . it is so overwhelming. I am trying to make this count for something Montana, I don't want your life to slip away so soon and not have mattered. . . because I know you had the capacity and strength to grow into adulthood and be a great man, possibly one who would make a great difference in the lives of many others. . . Son, I know we will see one another again. . I have no doubt in my heart and my mind and my soul about that. . . but I am going to miss you. . . I so miss you. Son, Monty. . . I am sharing what happened to us with others in hope that we can save some other child's or adult's life. That we can make a difference for you having left us so soon, I miss you, my son. . On Saturday December 21, 2013 we are going to celebrate your life and hopefully positively affect some others. . . all I know is that you are gone and that I miss you. . . for more information go to

Love your dad,

Eric Sean Brown
