Hi, I’m Pat. Wife. Mother. Honey. Jesus-Girl. Author and Blogger. As the daughter of an Italian mama I love opening up our home, and creating warm, memorable experiences to share with family and friends. So, in the same vein when my daughter, Melanie ran ahead to heaven in 2020, I created this blog as a way to give my heart a voice, opening the door and inviting in those who are also walking the grief journey. Child loss is like no other, yet I’ve found walking this road side-by-side helps make the way a little lighter.
