I have been married to my kids’ hero for almost 26 years. He has been called many things (including Captain America), but his favorite is that of husband and father. We have six great kids, including a daughter, Laney, who passed away in August of 2011 while hiking, at the tender age of 20. Through my story I hope to remind others that you can make it through whatever you are facing. One day at a time.
Like many of you, I am no stranger to life’s trials and heartaches.This blog is a result of my recent struggles with the loss of my daughter and my hope is to inspire and encourage those whose heads hang down and to strengthen the feeble knees.
I do not want to be here, doing this. I do not want to be a member of this particular club. The club of those who have lost a child. But I am. And so, through my struggles, I will offer thoughts of healing, strength and courage. I will give insight into how my family is coping, and how it is that we can find the courage to take it one day at a time. And then, to try again tomorrow.
I hope that my words with strengthen you in some way, so that you may be able to carry on and find joy in the journey.
