Saying Goodbye to My Mom

As many of you know, I lost my mom about a month ago and late last month we held a memorial service.  How do you say goodbye to decades of love and care. I tried to put all that in words and I thought I’d share what I wrote. In trying to prepare what I wanted to say, I ended up staring at my computer screen because nothing came. I wrote the words “Mom was.” And that was all that came and I didn’t know what to say. That’s bad… really bad because words are my life. I write thousands … Continued

This is the very opening of the book.  I’d love to know what you think.     Chapter 1 “Chris,” Briggs said as he stalked into the locker room like a man on a mission. His gaze was hard and his posture as rigid as a two by four. Anger and discontent rolled off him in waves the way they … Continued
