Profile Information

About my Loss:
My husband just passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on October 29th.

About me

I'm a freelance writer and photographer who focuses on nature, wildlife, the environment and both humorous and inspirational human interest stories.

My life was one of perfect bliss with my sweet hubby. He recently passed away and I am working at getting that bliss back.

I will share some of my thoughts about the process on this website.

"Yes, it's true that I was blessed to take care of my mom, but that only makes saying goodbye harder. Losing our moms is never easy for anyone, but for some of us who find our way here, our moms may have been the center of our lives. That's…"
