Continue to revise SHE SHOULD HAVE TOLD. Hoping to get fresh eyes on it at the SCBWI CAROLINAS conference in late August. Paid for a critique and should have some new insight on it at that time. Also have a new genre I am exploring and hope to have news on that soon.

Lily’s Lagniappe: The gloom is still over my family. I hope that we can move forward loving and remembering with great memories. We miss his laugh and his brightness.

Revising again but I am spotty at best where concentration is involved. Hoping to get one chapter ready for tomorrow’s writers meeting. The last chapter in MIND section of the book. The next meeting will be for the last section called SOUL.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Even though plenty condolences have been received there are those who judge the choices made by his parents, misinterpreting the choice. Just can’t help some people.


July 15, 2017

Mourning covers every aspect of your life. Every decision, every choice and every thought is colored by a huge cloud of greyness, doubt and missing pieces of my family.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Sad, trying days ahead. We miss our boy. Keeping special thoughts and knowing he’s in a better place.


July 13, 2017

A huge balloon on sadness is upon us today. A beloved member of our family has departed way too early from this earth. All I can say is no longer are there trials, struggles, pain, and suffering. He is at peace! I love him and will miss him greatly.  Fly high!

Lily’s Lagniappe: The unspeakable sadness that prevails when someone leaves this earth way too soon is hard for a family to deal with. Faith and a belief that he is in a far better place, we will go on but we will never forget our precious boy.
