Death has been at the forefront of my life since childhood. The first time I remember experiencing death was discovering our dog Rusty at the bottom of our backyard stairwell. A few years later it was my brother, then my dad, then several friends, then my grandmother, then my sister. Finally, in 2007 I had had enough. I decided to study and research death. Oddly enough. Many of the answers I was seeking were standing in front of me all of my life. In my grandfather Big Daddy!

We decided to celebrate the fourth of July a month early. The idea I came up with was dumb! I even involved "Silver." The family dog! That dog was a big enough problem on his own.

In 1972.  "I can see clearly now" by Johnny Nash spoke to me. Being so young. I did not understand the lyrical meaning of the song. Thirty years later. After "allowing" life to take me down a painful path for over a decade. "I can see clearly now" came on the radio while driving. The emotional effect it had was so overwhelming. I pulled over just to cry! Tears of joy.
