My Tribute: My sister, Laurie Cole, lost her battle with addiction in the early hours of 10/31/2020. She was a very talented artist but she was never that confident about her abilities. The ghosts of her traumatic childhood and early adulthood were something she could never let go of and embrace happiness. I truly wish that I knew what she was thinking when she decided to buy those bags of poison. She knew about the fentanyl problem as we had discussed it, yet she became another one of its victims. I only hope that she has finally found the peace and serenity that was always so elusive to her in life.
