Emotionally Naked Love Story Part II

These two met through this website. Grief over loss of a child brought them together. And that’s how I met both of them, too. So while I wouldn’t choose to be in this club, it does have some pretty fabulous people, two of which are pictured above.

Lloyd wrote a story about his son, Blake, whom he lost to suicide. Tamara wrote several articles about grief and her son, Logan, who suffered mental illness, an eating disorder and died in a truck crash in my old neighborhood.

I’ve written the love story part I already and you can find it here.

This is the picture that was on their wedding announcement which preceded the wedding invitation. And the big day is Saturday, February 7, 2020.

Emotionally Naked was the conduit through which these two met, eventually fell in love, got engaged and now getting married. I’m so proud of myself. Because who doesn’t want to take credit for a really good love story?
