One Year

I don’t have many words today. I am extremely sad that the world lost a great person a year ago today. He fought cancer as hard as anyone could. And he fought for people with cancer more than anyone I’ve met. It was truly an honor to be in his life, and to be able to call his friends my friends,...

From Dan’s Dad

As the first anniversary of Dan’s death approaches I have been thinking more and more as to how much I miss him.br /br /How I miss yelling at the “infallible “referee during his HS soccer games about a particular call involving Dan’s play. How I miss playing golf with him but never being able...

Blogs

Although this blog was originally for the two of us, and eventually for me, I know that it has helped those that loved Dan as well. It has been a place where we all share our thoughts, and where we know Dan’s memory lives on. The comments and postings bring comfort to our extended family.br /br...

Memories- From Dan’s Mom

I’ve received a lot of nice notes and emails this week. Dan’s mom Cicily sent these pictures to me along with a few words about him. “Danny was my “baby”, even into adulthood and to the end. Look at his beautiful smile. He was the most perfect baby, always happy and easy...

3/16

Many people have asked what I will be doing next week to mark the one year anniversary of Dan’s death. I have to admit that the topic was causing me stress, as I am sure it was others who are trying to figure out what to say to me or even do on their own. I really did struggle with it. Dan died...

In Like a Lion

Well, the appointed month is here… many of us have commented that it can’t possibly be a year since we lost Dan, and I am at the top of the list. I have never been one for anniversaries of bad days. Mainly because if I wake up and feel ok… then what- should I feel bad that I feel ok?...

Valentine’s Day

Today I had the opportunity to film for a show called World’s Strictest Parents. The premise of the show is to take 2 difficult teenagers and place them in a home with more discipline and rules for 5 days- sorta like Wife Swap. Anyways, as part of the show, the host parents and teenagers participate...

Fight or Flee

Seems like lately I’ve been more on the fleeing side than fighting. Probably because it was this time last year that things really hit the fan. Bad news seemed to come daily, and there was nothing we could really do. I admit, it’s a tough time. Not just for me, but for everyone in our little...
