The Fall
It’s a strange thing that Carey died on Thanksgiving because
reminders and anticipation of this holiday start popping up weeks in

Life After Death
The forgetfulness has been a big thing that caught me off
guard.   My brain doesn’t work like it

phone gets forgotten all the time, everyday.   I wasn’t expecting simple things ...

We went in for Carey’s scans yesterday.  Unfortunately, it
was more difficult of a day than we were expecting.   Even though we are constantly trying to

A Lasting Legacy
A few months ago the Autism Society asked Carey to make a video telling a bit of his story and how autism has affected our family.  We were excited for this opportunity.  After receiving his prognosis, Carey's focus has not been on checking items off a buck...

When Darkness Veils His Lovely Face
