I met Lori four and a half years ago.  I took an AA meeting into the detox.  Lori was detoxing.

Her sixth detox.

This time she got it.

She told us her story tonight.  Tragic.  Beautiful.  Sad -- so fucking sad.  Howlingly funny.

When an alcoholic gets to where she got, and makes it back, and, not only that, makes it back and finds peace, joy, happiness, integrity -- hey, you'll maybe think I'm ridiculous but you don't know -- they become almost a holy person.

She's got the most honest smile.  The deepest, truest, sparklingest eyes.

Lori is gold.  Solid fucking gold.
