Give sorrow words;
the grief that does not speak whispers the o'er-fraught heart and bids it break
~ Shakespeare, Macbeth

While running in June of 2010, my husband Doug's heart suddenly stopped. He was 52 years old. I set up this website in an effort to share Dougness with others. That includes those who miss him like I do, and those who were not lucky enough to know him.

This blog has been helping me process the turning upside down of my world. Be forewarned that the grieving parts are pretty raw. I took it offline for awhile. It was public, depressing, messy and incomplete. What I wrote or didn't write had the unintended consequence of hurting some people I love. I've putting it back now, and have filled in some of the blanks that I didn't have the courage to write about earlier.
