Tomorrow is Rob’s birthday. It is always most difficult the day before. I find myself reflecting on so much, and it helps me to write out my thoughts. As always, I wrote him a letter… Dear Rob, Here we are, once again, celebrating your birthday without you. Today, you turn 27 years old. I have never liked the words, you would have been. You are still as present for me as the day you left me. This year has come … Read More

Oh man. Best. Trip. Ever. Can we go back yet?! The past ten days were beyond anything I could have ever imagined. So much peace and serenity. California is exactly what I needed. The weather, the views, the beaches, the activities, the shopping, and of course the company!! It may sound cliche and hokey, but I honestly think I have gained a new perspective on life. This has been one of the hardest years, mentally and emotionally for me, so … Read More

Without you and Tim, Reclaiming My Life would not exist. Without you and Tim, I would not be where I am today. I will never forget you, Tim and Bob coming to me, asking me if I would be willing to open a sober home through my foundation. I thought to myself, what the heck is a sober home! But, sure 😂 From there, Reclaiming My Life was born, named after Robert Mason Lofink, my beautiful son. Together, we created … Read More

Grief is… Standing in American Eagle, in between two rows of men’s boxers. The boxers Rob wore. The boxers that Rob died in, in his bed. Standing there, staring at them… Was that pair them? Weren’t they blue? Wait, was it American Eagle, or was it Hollister? Why can’t I remember the exact boxers he was wearing, or exactly where they were from, when I saw him on his bed for the last time? Oh my gosh, stop picturing him … Read More

I have known you since the beginning. You were the adorable blonde working at the front desk of the foundation. Anytime I needed anything, you were always there to help me.

Your love for me and my grief has been unconditional since the day that … Read More
