I pulled up and parked under that same weepy tree that I always park under. A small red car was parked under the next tree down. I could see a female silhouette sitting in the driver’s seat. How long had she been here? Was she leaving? I wondered of her story as I put...

November 16th I flew across the country, met a family I discovered online and found myself.

I landed in Buffalo NewYork around 8:30pm, Miss Jenna picked me up from the airport and I got my first taste of "New York" pizza. My home for the next four nights was a 500 squ...

This is what I know three days before the year anniversary of the days that turned my world upside down, tore it to pieces, and threw me in a spiraling motion. This is what I know of my journey, my grief, my love, my heartache and my struggles.

It's who we don't know we are influencing that means the most. Sometimes that means we might never know just how many lives we are impacting. 

I am still learning of the lives Doug had influence on. I sit and read the 90 softballs that were left on our yard. Realizing t...
