Getting this book written is my new goal! It will have my art in it. Young widowhood came suddenly, and with it came simple words and beautiful acts from those who carried me & my four children through loss. As I complete my book collecting this journey my family traveled, I hope this sharing can help anyone who knows someone traveling through the elegant journey from loss DEFINING us to loss INFORMING us. While much of these last nine years was painful and messy, the times when offerings from others seem to be the perfect solution, when one simple change made all the difference--these stories bring me the most joy.
