I lost my 38-year-old daughter this year to an accidental and deadly combination of drugs and alcohol. Laura was a vibrant, witty, and loving young woman who grew up in the Upper Valley and worked at the University of California as executive assistant to a dean. Highly intelligent and very accomplished, she was also a highly functional, very secretive addict.
