  2. I still draw little sketches for Patti in my Journal like I used to send her. In my mind I can see her absolutely thrilled with your new book. Hope to see you soon.

  6. You don’t know me Danny but i’ve been inspired by you and Sketchbook Skool. Coincidentally I just read Kiss Before You Go yesterday and was so moved by it. I am sure your journey will continue to inspire me and many others. Thankyou for sharing it.

  7. Celebrate all that is unique because she was part of your life. Grieve for the time you will no longer share. Perseverance is such a difficult and wonderful thing.

  8. Danny, thinking of you and Jack today. I recently picked up my copy of “Everyday Matters” again because I felt the urge to begin again, try to see with fresh eyes. You’ve inspired so many and are loved by so many. I hope you can feel that love today and always.

  9. Wow! I don’t know the story AND this is very profound and I can feel in my heart what is being expressed. From the replies I get the gist of the story and I, too, want to stand in honor of the one you loved and add my hug.

  11. What can I say? Our experiences in our family are so closely linked with yours. Six years is a blink of an eye and yet seems forever.

  12. For Jack the pain of missing his mother, will strike at times like his graduation from college, when he marries, when he holds his first born child, and when he holds his first grandchild… pretty much all those life events his mother would have been a big part of. For you Danny, it’s a hole in your heart always there, and when you hold your first grandbaby, or great grandbaby… you too will be thinking of Patti, and missing her. Hugs to you both… now I’ve gotta find the kleenex, missing my Mother now too.

  13. I lost my husband 10 years ago and sometimes it seems like an eternity and sometimes it seems like time stopped…just like the watch you are wearing. Sometimes when I drive to work in the morning I ask myself and my Higher Power…”is this really the way it’s supposed to be? Is this really my life?” My children miss him so much and know that he is watching over them.

    Patti is watching over you and Jack. Our lives go on even when we didn’t think it was possible…we don’t get to understand “the plan”…at least not now. Blessings to you and your son. You are an inspiration to me on so many levels and I thank you for that!
