About Me

I am a single father of 7 children. I lost my true love to cancer in 1993. I lost my first daughter to cancer in the same year.
I myself survived cancer in 2003 and my second daughter survived cancer in 2005. Life has been a roller coaster ride.
But the love of my children keeps me going. I started writing poetry in the darkest depths of my grief in '93. Even had some published. But mostly dark and depressing thoughts inspired them then. I look at life and what it has to give a lot differently now. My children are my rock, my crutch that holds me upright and my reason for being and not going down the dark pathway to despair. When I'm feeling down or an old memory creeps in of darker days gone. I look at them and see that I am blessed and I smile :)
