January%202015.jpg I took this photo in January 2015 just two short months after Mark's death, I had traveled home to Jacksonville, Florida and drove out to the Beach with our dog Bella. A "Nor-Easter" was blowing cold wind in and there were maybe 3 other brave souls…Continue

I have created a blog page on Face Book @Stephen.goodwin264.
It is a collection of short stories about all the people in my life and how their influence have helped to make me the person I am today. So far I have completed 3 short stories and will continue to add new ones. My goal is to literally include everyone I have journeyed with in this life and the ones I have yet to meet. Hope you visit my page and I look forward to your feed…Continue

my dog Shaggy is my lifeline he too was grieving so good to have this and share our stories
Steve ... What wonderful pictures and such treasured memories. You know me and dogs and the dog on your slide show won my heart. Sweet face! I hope to add more pictures to my Home Page as well.
Thank you big brother for sharing your most personal pictures.
Steve, I am going to be one of those that will tell you to take your time. I strongly suggest no to make any life altering changes within the first year. Your post hit home for me. Before my husband passed I retired from a job which I loved and was so respected but I did it with no regrets to take care of him. After he passed away I confined myself to the sofa or bed and it it were not for my dogs I might still be there.
I have no clue what God has in store for me or why am I here and he is not. I guess why is an unanswered question we will need to figure out in time. I try my hardest to stay positive and so when I am down I need to count my blessings and not my heart aches and that keeps me going.
Grieving such as ours is a baby step process and unless someone has lost their soulmate, best friend, spouse all rolled into one they will never understand the pain we are in. They will never understand the pain lingers and never truly goes away! Take one day at a time Steve and remember to count your blessings and take life slow for now. Sending big hugs your way. Hugs, Jane P.
▪ Keep busy and continue your routine of work and activity. Many expressed the great help they received from prayer.
▪ Let your grief manifest itself; don’t try to hold it in. The sooner you grieve and weep, the sooner you will pass the period of acute grief.
▪ Don’t isolate yourself; mix with people and allow them to mix with you. If it helps you, talk freely about your lost loved one.
▪ As soon as possible, take an interest in other people and their problems. Try to help others, and you will help yourself."
