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 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.

A message from Tim Webber… On May 19, 2002, my very good friend, Joe, died Sunday after the Preakness. Joe loved horse racing; in fact, a racehorse was named after him. He was my best friend in high school, and years later, while there were a few separations due to moves and life, we remained best friends until the day he passed. As an Atholton High School junior, he won the state high school golf championship, known as the Junior … Read More
