When the Worst Happens

It seems appropriate to tell you today, right now, that I have begun to write a book about Davey’s life and death and my tough journey after losing a child. Many of you have suggested that I write a book, and,

so it begins.

As I sit down to write my whole story, I’m surprised at how much I’ve never blogged about.

I am planning to have the book available for you to read at the beginning of next year, 2023. I’m including a couple of the first paragraphs here.

The Title of the Book is When the Worst Happens.

The first chapter is My Nightmare Begins.

The book starts 6 years ago, almost to the hour….

“I was driving home from work – like I had done for over 33 years.

It was Wednesday, May 18th, 2016. I had just taken my leadership team from my office out for an early happy hour to celebrate birthdays and accomplishments. After having a glass of wine, I was starting to feel the stress of the day melt away.

Little did I know that a tsunami was forming in a part of Phoenix called Laveen and it was coming my way. The waves of destruction were growing bigger and stronger and darker as each moment passed. A deadly drama was being played out that would totally blow up my world.

It felt like a normal Wednesday to me – until my cell phone rang.”

I’ll let you know when the rest of the book is done.

Miss you, Davey. Especially today.

Love you.
