Grief and Sorrow Unleashed

My son was killed in a car crash ten years ago today. Yet sorrow continues on any given day. And why? Because he is still loved, missed, wanted; and part of our family.

His memory will continue, his personality flourish, and his life celebrated until the end of time. He will always be savored, his eccentric actions remembered, and his laughter relished. He will forever be a beloved part of life itself.

I will continue to see him far in the distance, pass him on the road, or look for him in a crowded room. He is still here, but only a memory away. He was a joy, an adventure, and an exceptional addition to my life–and forever will be missed.

It’s my Time to Grieve-Revised Edition is soon to be released, and available at


Gone, yet not forgotten
You are just away
Your love forever keeps me
Each and every day
