Lorie Huston will be dearly missed by everyone whose life she touched.

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

A week ago today my friend Leslie let me know our mutual friend Lorie had passed away. The next day my friend Miranda helped me find service information, Pete let me skip out on work, and that night and the next day I was at services for Lorie, holding tightly to Russ’s hand, wide-eyed and reeling. I have not come out of that shocky fog till now.  Though this illness came on suddenly, Lorie had been successfully managing a chronic condition for several years. For all that time, as far as I know, Lorie had not let anyone but her family know she was ill. I am guessing the reason was she wanted to know how other people were doing, and it did not come up.

Lorie Huston, DVM was a beloved daughter, sister, veterinarian, cat Mom, Pet Saver and friend. Lorie practiced medicine at Hoffman Animal Hospital in Rhode Island. Lorie wrote many, many articles and content for her own websites and others’ sites. Much of her writing was centered around helping mutual pet lovers take excellent care of their pets.

Lorie passed away on September 30, 2014. Her visitation was Thursday evening, October 2, 2014. Her funeral was Friday morning, October 3, 2014.

I realized even in the midst of this past week that it was dumb luck – by that I mean the kindness of friends and the blessing of God of course – that I was able to be at Lorie’s services at all. We met online. We learned several months into our online friendship that Omaha was our mutual hometown. We realized a few years later that the “new” hospital I was working at was one where Lorie had practiced early in her career. Everyone at Gentle Doctor who was here then, including Doc the founder, remembers Lorie for her kindness and graciousness.

Lorie’s Golden Retriever nephew was at the visitation. I gravitated towards him for comfort more than anything. Well, comfort and his huge gorgeous brown Golden eyes. Lorie’s brother said that he brought him because he loved Lorie so much. I suspect he also knew what a comfort he would be to the family. Because he was there, another family member brought her new puppy too. It was the sweetest visitation I have attended. I was able to tell Lorie’s Mom how very loved and admired Lorie was by all of us who knew her as a veterinarian and writing friend. The chaplain and family had found many of the sweet memorial postings about Lorie online, and Lorie’s Mom said how very comforting it was to read everything you have written.

The funeral was beautiful. Lorie’s Mom and Dad and brother prepared a slide show and music. Rainbow Connection and Somewhere over the Rainbow and I Can Only Imagine were played.

As Lorie has streamlined and perfected her writing aimed at educating pet lovers, she has supported me all through my bumbling, random writing career. As Lorie has consistantly and compassionately provided excellent veterinary care to her many clients and patients, she has been there when I have had twists and turns and bumps in the road. I have wanted to be like Lorie since I met her.

Lorie was so young.

She was such a constant, positive long distance friend, that her loss is jarring and has not quite settled into the center of me. I suspect that is true of all of us who knew her through her writing and online presence. We need her in our lives. We do not know how to rearrange our reality to compensate for that need. We thought she would always be here.
