My Tribute: My beautiful daughter Lisa left this earth in June of 2019, after an 11 year battle with addiction. Lisa was an amazing young woman – kind, intelligent, artistic, talented in so many ways. Heroin robbed her of her life, and robbed those of us who knew and loved her of her company, her smile, the sound of her laughter and her gentle soul. A part of me died with her and I cannot comprehend life without her. She is with me always – I hear her voice and her laughter when I cook, watch TV, am in the car, in a store or a restaurant – and she will be with me until the day I join her. I miss her more than words can express.
