My First Posting

Why did I start this blog? My oldest son passed away on August 6th at the age of 31. He loved life more than anyone I have known. I wrote a eulogy for him and in it I spoke of what I believed his legacy to be. I've been thinking about what it means to leave a legacy ever since - and I realized I wanted to start blogging about my own life. I want to write about my past, my present hopes and dreams, and my future aspirations so that my other three children will know me as an individual and hopefully have a better understanding of who they are. This is my legacy to them.
