    I Lost My Daughter As we near the 10 year mark

    I struggle more now than ever. For years I asked if I had healed. I had no clue. After many years I thought "well, enough time has passed, I MUST be "over" your loss. And then it happened. I tend to believe this one was on you. I really believe you put her into my life. I...

    3/23/14... Almost 10 years

    since Stormy-Denice's passing. How can it be? How can my 12 year old daughter be gone forever? It makes no sense that this life that I cared for with all my heart and soul was wiped out in one cataclysmic moment. What makes life? Where did it go? What can I do to bring it back?

    It is done. So many years later,
