I have been working towards completing this book which documents mine and some of the stories of other parents in my support group. Here is the Preface which still needs some editing but the basic structure is there and it has a lot about my personal mothering and child loss experience.

Grief is not only about sorrow. It is a journey of healing and renewal and it involves a lot of work.

When you lose a child life can never be the same, but in time it can be good again and the relationship you had with your child will continue until the day you join them in death.

Pippa's 39th Birthday

I have created this website as a tribute to my darling daughter Pippa (my little Poodle) and her precious little son, Kieran (my little Pickle), and to share the many photos that Pippa and I had collected over the years and our stories of their brief, but magnificent lives.

The hours I've put into this project have given me the opportunity to look back over their time with us and in doing so, I've realized that they touched so many people with their beautiful spirits while they lived, and have continued to do so since they left us. They were a well travelled Mother and Son and packed many exciting experiences into their short lives.I would like to invite you to share your memories and photos of Pippa and Kieran with us by emailing me at memories@pippaandkieran.com or signing our Guestbook. I would like to thank Larry Comeau and Bassem Costandi for their valuable help on the technical side. Thank you so much, Sue (step Mom/Grandma) for converting those movies of Pippa's Dancing Shows to DVD and mailing them all the way to us here in Canada!I've added a number of clips to the site, via the Video link at the left.THANK YOU so much for visiting!

SQUASH

 

Footprints on the Heart

Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to new understanding
with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
Some people make the sky
more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for awhile,
leave footprints on our hearts
And we are never, ever the same.
