My Tribute: Lily Dooly... daughter, sister, aunt, best friend... yes Lily did drugs but that was secondary to all of those roles that she played. And Lily was sober... even with her chronic pain from medical reasons, she was sober... and then one night she wasn't. I look around at all of the people that love her and only pray that she even remotely understood her impact on this world. On top of my sadness of losing my best friend I sit here Then the family that she left behind. And then I am angry... how could she have been so reckless with their hearts... she's fine now but they are not... I am not... my kids... her neices are not... but then I remember as a recovering addict myself... we all wanted the same things... including Lily... our demons are always there and sometimes they win... that does not negate the work Lily did and how strong she was... Lily was sober... Lily was strong... Lily was loved... Lily.......
