I don't know if other grievers have ever heard or felt this way, but before things with Harrison happened, I was a firm believer in Karma. I thought if I am a good person and do good things, it will return to me. My outlook on life was very positive. I felt in control and… Continue reading Karma

The hardest thing for me to grasp after Harrison died was wondering if he was okay. As a parent, I feel like I never stop wondering and worrying about my kids. Even as Ava gets older and bigger, if I am away from her, I worry, is she okay? I know she's fine, it's just… Continue reading The hardest thing

As I began to write with pen and paper, I realized there were many others, in addition to the grieving. The friends and family, the coworkers, and even just… Continue reading For all
