For You, Because of You and In Memory of you… Robert Mason Lofink 2/21/96 – 9/14/14 Dear Robert, September 14, 2014… There I was, sitting in the front yard, hysterically crying and repeating the word “No” over and over again. I was so aware that my life had just ended, and that nothing would ever be the same. You were gone. It was such a beautiful day, on my most tragic day. It felt so cruel to be that beautiful. … Read More

Holding Rob’s Heart

Mike and Kathy, It was such a wonderful day yesterday. Somehow you always partner us up with great people that we are meant to meet. Yesterday we had the pleasure of being with two of the Smyth brothers, Jim and Tom. Smyth Jewelers made several pieces of jewelry for me, my daughter, my nieces and Rob’s girlfriend. They are charm bracelets and necklaces that hold heart charms, with Rob’s ashes in them. Mike and Kathy, thank you both for your … Read More

Kristin’s New House

I have worked very hard over the past couple of months to have faith that an extremely difficult situation would work out. This situation has tested my faith in my purpose, and it has brought my grief to the raw surface. Although I am still very emotional, Rob has once again showed me that he is closing one door so that he can move me to where I am meant to be. Unfortunately, the journey of opening a new door … Read More

There is Purpose in Pain

posted in: Letters to Rob 0

Yesterday was not an easy day for me. Sometimes my grief gets the best of me, and I have pretty severe PTSD from the sudden death of Rob. Thank you Rob, for always giving me just what I need, to remind me that there is purpose in my pain. And, thank you for the perfect breeze today. I miss you so very much. 😪 For You, Because of You and In Memory of You ♥️More

A message from Tim Weber… We are returning from a much-needed vacation. I haven’t had a chance to reflect on the weekend before our vacation at Camp Thrive. This weekend, we get to interact with children impacted by addiction-related trauma. Some of these kids have lost a parent to addiction! Some of the parents are incarcerated, and some are in active recovery. This camp allows all these kids to see they are not alone and that it’s OK to talk … Read More

Sharing my story of hope…

Marwan, Thank you for coming to Reclaiming My Life yesterday afternoon. It is so important to bring awareness and attention to the disease of addiction. You did this by allowing the women to share their stories in a safe place that they call home. I am so proud of these women, and they give me so much more than I could ever give to them. It has been a while since I have shared the day that Rob died. While … Read More

Rob’s Forever Home

It took me a very long time to get this done, and no one should ever have to do this.. Certain things make Rob’s death feel so much more final, painful and real. I have done a lot of thinking over the years as to what I wanted Robert’s forever home to look like. When I opened my package today and saw this, it made my heart break. I think about holding Robert in my arms, on the day he … Read More

We Bought Rob’s House

A little over five years ago, Tim, Brittney, Bob and I met. They asked me if I would be interested in opening a women’s sober home. Bob, who was retired from the Sheriff’s department, had a townhouse in Westminster. He wanted to help our community, and he offered me his rental to be used as a sober home. I had started Rising Above Addiction two years earlier, yet had no idea what sober living was. Tim and Brittney assured me … Read More
