I am now a Mother that no one wants to be. I love my children more than life itself and my world got turned upside down when my 1st born son Billy, also known as Liam, was murdered by a stranger in a random act of violence. I have 3 remaining living, breathing, amazing children, 2 sons and 1 daughter, 3 living,breathing,amazing step-sons and each and every one is special,creative,and unique! I also have 3 beautiful grandchildren! 2 Grandsons ages 7and 8 and a precious 3 year old Granddaughter! My Grandson Logan, is Billy’s only child, he is now 8 years old. As my daughter says, he is the warm piece of Billy that we get to touch. I enjoy cherishing and taking care of my husband and my family, leading a healthy lifestyle in spirit, soul and body, clean eating, CrossFit, sunshine,rest, listening to music and singing along! I will never be who I was before this happened. I am dedicated to learn what I can, embrace the pain, and share my raw, wounded, healing heart that is daily changing due to this great tragedy. My hope is touch lives in many ways,no matter how big or small, in honor and in memory of my son, Billy.He will live on through my words, the words of his Mother and the hearts of his family💗

I’m watching our annual fireworks with the family.
Celebrating America’s independence.
Isn’t that what we want?
To be independent?
I know Billy sure did.
Ever since he could walk and talk, he was all about doing things all by himself.
Sometimes it got him in trouble,but,that boy was a force of character, he had great determination and nerve.
He was bold and brave.
Maybe it was that moxy that made him face the stranger, his assailant ,on that fateful night.
Billy had the nerve to turn around and confront the man who was following him and his friends.
Billy loved his brother and his friends who were with them that night.
His boldness most likely saved the life of someone else.
The land of the free and the home of the brave.
Billy was brave.
I see that braveness and determination in Logan too.
I’ll do my best to shepherd Logan’s heart and teach him to use that grit and determination for good and to be a help to others.
It’s what Daddy would have wanted.
