Life likes to keep it real

Not like in the movies

The full package deal

Everything else can go wrong

When asked for, it varies.

Anger pounding in my head

The unspoken words sink back

retreating from the tip unsaid

Back into thoughts before long

The pounding starts on track

Slowly silenced by an echo

Rolling into a ROAR of laughters

But the signs begin to show.

My chance to hear it? Gone.

My ability to remember it falters

Acceptance, implies moving on

How do you move on from someone

Who accepted you? It's dawn

And then night without blinking.

Maybe I'll get some sun

And laugh a little like you,

Just maybe not as loud.

The moment I met her I loved her
her unselfishness her way of making you feel so special
I wish she was aware of her toxic path she was on
I wish we all had more time to love her
Lorri RIP
I love you

I have known Lori for a very long time and all I can say is that she was an sweetheart. She was kind and loving to everyone . You will be missed.

Lorri came to us as a foster child when she was just 14 years old. She has been a daughter to us ever since. Here is a poem she wrote and sent to me not more than 2 months ago.
The Gift
The other day a young person asked me how I felt about being old... I don't think of myself as being old.
Old age, I decided is a gift. I am now, probably for the first time in my life, the person I have always wanted to be. Often I am taken back by that aging person who lives in the mirror.
I would never trade my friends, my life or my family for less gray hair or a flatter belly.
As the years go by, I've become less critical of myself, I've become my own friend. I don't punish myself for not making my own bed or eating that extra cookie or buying those extra things I don't need.
I'm entitled to a treat, to be messy, to be me. I will dance with myself and listen to those tunes and at the same time...wish to weep over a lost love...I will. I have seen too many loved ones leave this world too soon; before they were blessed with the joy of aging.
I know sometimes I am forgetful. But then again, somethings in life are best forgotten. I do remember what is important. Sure, over the years my heart has been broken. How can a heart not break when you lose a loved one or when a child suffers.
This is what gives us strength, compassion and understanding. I am blessed to be living long enough to have graying hair and to have those good belly laughs. I will always remember I even learned it's alright...to be wrong.
So the answer to the question.......
I like getting old
I like the person I have become
I will not live forever, but while I am here, I will not waste time.

I WILL ENJOY LIFE

For a couple of years now, I’ve been getting to know Lorri in between her busy life. There was so much love she had for life, her family and the ones she adopted as family. So young, she had so much more she wanted to do and I am sure see. Her bright light is now cheering us all on to continue for her....this bright star is everlasting

I met Lorri many years ago outside The Port Moody Inn. We talked for a bit. She was cheerful and kind to me. I am so sorry to hear the news. My dearest sympathies to all her family and her many friends
