Mom Inspired My Work

Growing up, Mom and I shared a closeness that continued long after I set out on my own.

I enjoyed hearing about her adventures that included traveling extensively throughout England, Belgium and many parts of Europe.

Through it all, she never lost focus on putting family first.

Mom’s dementia progressed rapidly after Dad died unexpectedly. We had planned to record her life stories, tales of traveling throughout Europe with five small boys, 3 dogs, and a husband in tow.

But it wasn’t meant to be.

My son and a large number of family and friends lost their chance to hear Mom’s stories; lost forever because we waited too long.
