I write a lot on this website about our journey through grief after Andy’s passing. By sharing stories of Andy and of our struggles, I hope to help others going through similar circumstances feel a little less alone. I know that many of the posts here are emotional and difficult to read - they can be challenging to write too.
Because of that, I felt like I needed another blog to share the happier stories and events in our family. You can find it at http://thenlucysaid.blogspot.com/. “Then Lucy Said…” chronicles our daily life in short essays and snippets of conversations. It’s is about the incredible frustrations and joys of motherhood. It’s about the humor of every day and sometimes even the sadness of the past. Simply, it’s about each day that I get to spend with Andy’s siblings, Lucy and Will.
“Andy’s Army” will still be here, filled with SMA-related information, awareness/fundraising events, and, most importantly, memories of Andy.
Thank you for sharing our journey with us for the past four years - we look forward to continuing it with you!
