When the Loss is Felt

June 11, 2017

After losing a loved one, people and events seem to trigger the pain. It takes us back to the reality that the substance abuser is gone and the wound seems raw again.

I had that experience on July 20, 2017, when Lori’s son, Joe Cahill married Laura Tavares. My daughter, Lori’s, name was actually Laura Lea Lopes.

Joe found a wonderful, loving woman. Lori would have been so proud of the both of them.

Here is a picture of my other daughter, Debbie Dutra, Joe’s aunt, dancing with him. She and her husband, Brian, took Joe and his sister, Meagan, into their home when their mother, Lori died.

Life goes on and we all look for comfort and peace. Life still flows through Lori’s son, Joe, and her daughter, Meagan, who is due in October of 2017 to have a son.

We have to believe Lori is looking down at all of us.
