National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims

On this National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims, please remember Morgan (8.16.1991 – 12.2.2011), and hold her in your heart, as well as all other victims of murder. They were all taken too soon. 

We must always; Seek Justice, Ensure Victims’ Rights, Inspire Hope…and never give up!

Here are some links you may want to watch:  

To all those whose lives have been forever shattered by the murder of your loved one, never forget and never give up your search for justice…we never will! 



To my beautiful daughter, Morgan – I miss you every minute of every day, but today, on what would have been your 29th birthday, it hurts even more. 

Happy birthday Morgan.

Today is the day we celebrate the light you brought into this world, the moment you were born. I want you to know you brightened up everyone’s day, every time you walked into a room. 

Today, my heart wishes you were here, so we could all celebrate the amazing person you are. We would share your favorite Tiramisu birthday cake, have crab legs for dinner, sing happy birthday to you, and listen to your sweet giggles, as you open your birthday presents. But no matter how hard I wish – you can’t be here. We will still celebrate your birthday without you, and hope you can see us celebrate you, while you are celebrating with all the angels in Heaven. Your life mattered, not only to your family, but to so many other people as well.

This past week has been exceptionally hard, and as usual, I try not to ever show the world. Your friend, who was born one week before you, just got married. Her wedding pictures were beautiful, and everyone was so happy…I am really happy for her, and at the same time, it tore my heart apart knowing that we can never have those special moments with you. It never seems like the memories we made are the ones that hurt the most…it’s the new memories, created without you, that hurt the most.  I miss the future that we were all expecting to have with you.

 I miss you with ALL my heart and I love you to the moon and back x infinity…forever!


Happy Summer Solstice

The flower photo above is one that Morgan took in her last year of life…I will always honor Morgan by cherishing life as she did. Morgan loved life. Morgan saw beauty in the world at every turn.

Today, as we celebrate the first day of summer, I am reminded that on this longest day of the year, I have so much to be grateful for. I am grateful that Morgan, in her short 20 years, opened my eyes to so many things. She was wise beyond her years and I feel like she taught me more than I ever taught her. I miss her every moment of every day, but still feel her love and wisdom with me in every breath I take…for that I am grateful.
