Wielding my humor stick at my new nemesis, Grief, in all its many forms.  I endeavor to use this blog to help myself heal after the death of my son, Merrick.  We lost him two short days after he was born to a tragic birth accident.  This page is a way for me to express myself and hopefully provide a smile or two along the way for someone out there who’s going through something similar.  I welcome and encourage comments of any kind and will eagerly respond as time allows.  Thank you for your patience as I get my bearings in this new format.  If you like my posts or know someone who could benefit from my words, please share this blog freely.  My desire to help others was strong before I lost my son and it’s only more so now.  We all need each other.  If I can, let me be there for you too.
