A Tribute to My Father

Welcome to my blog!  My name is Anne and I am a mother and wife who has a passion to document my father’s story.  He died, suddenly, when I was 15 and he continues, every day, to live on in my memory.  I write this for myself, my children, and anyone who I can touch with a story that I hope to one day publish, if simply for the memories it will hold for the future generations of my family.  I hope you will find it honest, heartfelt, and encouraging.  From my heart to yours, thank you for your support and I hope it will touch you in a personal way.  He must live on; he is my hero.

I began writing about my father last year and then summer came and my garden took my time.  I want to share, little by little, a paragraph or two each week.  This will hopefully keep me on track and continuing to write over the winter months.  I am using this as an online journal to document my writing.  I do this for myself, as a form of self expression and a way to share my father’s story with my family and friends.  I welcome others to read as well, hoping it will touch you in a special way.  I believe the world needs as much kindness, honesty, and genuineness as it can get.  I hope my words can inspire and heal!

  1. I’m sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine how hard it must be some days rehashing your treasured memories of your father. I think it’s great that you can keep his memory alive and give your children the chance to know him in a way that they may not have been able too. Lots of love. I look forward to reading your story.
