Starting with my father-in-law’s sudden death in January, I’ve had 3 people I love pass on this year. His death was the one that rocked my world, the ultimate wake-up call. And even though I thought I was living consciously his death pulled the blinders off and I saw all the areas where I was not.

It changed me, how I live my day to day life. It changed the focus of my work. His death inspired me in a way I’d never expected. And even though I miss him greatly, I am forever grateful.
