I am very sentimental as the race approaches. I started this fund nine months ago. It was an idea that to try and turn grief into something positive that could help others. I had no idea that it would also help to save me.
My world, as I knew it, stopped the day that Robert died. I didn’t know how I would ever survive. Through it all, I have been surrounded by such incredible love. I have learned so much about life; the important things, like what truly matters. I have learned that we can only control certain things, and that we need to let the rest happen the way that it is supposed to. I’ve learned that I am stronger than I could have ever imagined and that I can get through anything.
Thank you Robert Mason Lofink for being such an incredible young man, and most importantly, for being one of the best gifts in my life. You will continue to live through saving other people’s lives.
Thank you to everyone who is coming out tomorrow to support Rising Above Addiction.
