I made this video at the beginning of 2012, we had just experienced what we thought at the time was the worst possible thing to happen to us. Yes, we’d experienced loss in our family before 2011, but this time, the pain lingered longer and went deeper. The sting from the death of a loved one was coupled with the betrayal of one we’d welcomed into our family with open arms and hearts.

Since we’re still up to our ears in litigation with my late father-in-law’s choice for a second bride, due to my husband being the oh-so lucky one to be named Executor, I can’t say much but this I can say…


Do not underestimate the power of friendships!

What does friendship mean to you?

p.s. I couldn’t fit all the photos and friends from 2011 that I’d like to include in this 3 minute 11 second video. And while I’m still wounded and find myself hiding out from the world from time to time, just know that you’re all appreciated and loved.
