A Year

I have written and rewritten this entry multiple times. I have much to say but honestly, I’m struggling with how to express it.

One year ago today Jen passed away. I am NOT doing anything special today. I choose NOT to commemorate the day my wife died. I would prefer to remember her vibrant spirit, full of energy smile and the person that she was on a day like her birthday or Mother’s day…not the day she was taken away from us.

I think we are doing okay, the girls and me. Abbie knows that Jen passed away right after her birthday and we have talked about it. She even knows that today is the day Jen died. She’s such an amazing and mature little girl. Allie is what I would classify a typical carefree 6year old kid. She’s full of life and energy and seems to be doing well.

I was going to write all this profound stuff but honestly, I can't find the right words. We miss you Jen and we love you...we do. I hope that wherever you are...that you are at peace.


  1. So sorry for your tremendous loss. Sending good thoughts to you and your little girls.

  2. Bill, I was thinking about you the other day and wondering when it would be a year. I am glad to read that you all seem to be doing okay. Take care.

  3. Bill,
    Sending good thoughts your way... I know you were struggling with this day and I just want to say that you don’t need to find the right words. The way you have moved forward with your girls in sincerity, love and courage says it all. Take care.

In August of 2009 my wife Jennifer passed away from an Anaplastic Astrocytoma Brain Tumor. She was only 38 years old. She left me and our two little girls Abbie and Allie to continue life’s journey.

I promised her that I would NOT become angry and bitter about what order to do that I am attempting to write to express my thoughts and feelings.

This site is a place where I can express my thoughts, feelings and rants...
