My dad died…

…after a stroke, in which he just couldn’t recover.

This little blog means so much to me, so I wanted you all to know I am taking time off to grieve and understand how to live without this great man in my life.



He made even the littlest things so intriguing.


Love life and all its gifts,
~Laurie, daughter of James

  1. Thank you all for these wonderfully healing and helpful words. It is such an awkward time and I appreciate the kindness and wisdom here….

    This has been a good weekend and we’re all starting to get back on track. There is an enormous amount of life to be grateful for and that’s what I am focusing on now.

    much love,


  2. Dear Laurie
    I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. It sounds like you have lots of wonderful memories of your dad.

    When my Pop died a good friend suggested that I write down, as soon as I was ready, ALL the things I wanted to remember about him.

    Take care and take as much time as you need

  4. from the daughter of Herb and Deb, understood. I will keep you in my prayers. My only thought is to remain open to whatever happens to you during this journey; change is inevitable but whether it’s good or bad depends on being open to that change. My deepest condolences.
