My father passed from this life to the next back in January. He had battled dementia for over ten years and took a sudden decline the day after Thanksgiving. He had lived with my sister since my mother’s passing back in 2014. Because we felt going through my mother’s personal belongings at the time would … Read More

Are you passionate about a subject that is a hot topic?  If it’s a topic that you disagree with, your blood begins to boil, your cheeks blush with color, you sit on the edge of your seat and you begin to voice what comes from within.  If it’s a topic that you agree with, excitement … Read More
