They say every face in a crowd has a story to tell, this is my story..

The news shows and newspapers all called it 'Road Rage'. To me that sounded like a disease, an affliction that can make you kill. A sorry excuse to take the claw end of a hammer and slam it repeatedly into the skull of a human being. In April of 1999 my little brother passed away. Doesn't passed away sound so gentle, even normal? David's death was neither. It was murder. He was found lying in a strangers driveway in a pool of blood. He had been punched, stomped and beaten over his entire body. I still have so many questions. I wrote this book at first for therapy and then for answers. I have found a few. I mainly realized l lost a brother tragically and senselessly. Like every other face in the crowd I have a story..and I want to share my story with you! PUBLICATION DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED LATE SUMMER/EARLY FALL :)

Friday Fragments

It has been one crazy week for me!
I have gone back to work at my day job after being off for 6 months with a
very pesky concussion, torn rotator cuff and pinched nerves in my neck.
I am anxiously awaiting the date for my brand new grand daughter's arrival (she will arrive via c-section)
I cannot concentrate on my next I'm making that one #3 and #3 will be #2
Happy Friday Everyone!

  7. Hi Doreen,

    So nice to meet yoy. I'm so sorry to read about your brother.

    I lost my brother about 14 yrs ago. He had a long time illness, but his death came quick, unexpectedly. It may have been a result of the medications he was taking to help with the illness- doctors really aren't sure. I can't imagine being in your shoes.

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I'm now following you!

    Have a blessed weekend.

  8. Thanks for stopping by and following my blog! #1, I'm so sorry about your brother. I can't even imagine...

    #2, congratulations on the soon-to-be arrival of your granddaughter. I just love babies. Love love love!

  9. Hope your day back was a easy one!!!

  10. Happy Mother's Day to you.

    I'm so glad you stop by, and congrats on your book being published.

  11. I hope your return to work has gone smoothly.

  12. It has been smooth so far; I am very glad to be back even if it is just part time for now. Thank you for asking and thank you for stopping by!

  13. Hey, congratulations on that granddaughter. You must be over the moon.

  14. Yes I am and also absolutely a nervous wreck; has not been the best of pregnancies and she will most likely be coming too soon...if she makes it til May 31st; she should be okay! Her two older sister's are so excited it's not a stupid boy!
