"Amen! Without my mini Schnauzer Avery, who was my husband's baby, I would likely not have gotten out of the house the first month. Fretting over and trying to help him wound up helping me. Something to be grateful for."

"Hi Lori, I am so sorry for your loss. I think many would agree that "moving through mud" is not an unusual feeling. And the timing and the way that changes is unique to each person. I understand the feeling of loss that comes when you…"

Averysmom,

Feel free to write to me at any time that feels good for you.  I can share with you many things that you can expect while on this journey.  In almost every case you will find some common feelings that everyone shares and then there will be those unique moments that you will have as your remember Steve.
