Ode to Lorrie

About two weeks ago I learned of the passing of a fellow blogger, Lorrie of The Token Fat Girl. I've been meaning to write this post for the last two weeks but I just haven't had the words. I write this with a heavy heart because Lorrie's blog was the first blog I stumbled upon when I first considered blogging say 3 years ago. And this was back when she still blogged at My All Natural Weight Loss

I first started eating loaded oatmeal because I found out about it via Lorrie's blog and used the recipe she shared and haven't looked back since.

According to her husband's tribute, Lorrie passed away from cardiac arrest the day after her 30th birthday :(

I found Lorrie to be contagiously cheerful and so full of life and my heart truly goes out to her loved ones and friends. I didn't know Lorrie personally but it honestly feels like I lost a friend.

In honor of Lorrie's memory her husband set up a memorial/fundraising page via American Heart Association. Please feel free to contribute any amount you can.
