2nd Chance

It has been over a week since the audiobook, Live Like Sean, was released, and again, I am humbled by the response. Hearing Sean’s stories may be even more powerful than just reading them. When you hear Jack Ford’s recognizable voice, these stories truly come to life. A former colleague of mine even remarked that she felt like she could look over and see Sean's grin as he talked about a Yankees' win or hear [...]

To Be Heard

Shortly after I decided to write Live Like Sean, I was asked by Sean's best friend Bobby Fredericks if an audio version of the book would be available. Honestly, the thought had not occurred to me as I was so focused on my grief and my ability to get my thoughts down on paper (with my co-author Theresa DiGeronimo's help, of course). However, the more I thought about it, I knew we absolutely needed to create [...]

A Truly Sad Day

As we approach the two-year anniversary of Sean’s death, I am still in disbelief that he is gone. So much has happened since that fateful Father’s Day morning in 2019. Some days it feels like ten years have passed since we were together. Then I see something that reminds me of Sean, the emotions come rushing back, and I feel like it was just yesterday that he was here. I know you never get over [...]

Happy Birthday Sean

Today would have been Sean’s 31st birthday. Most likely, we would have spent the day at a Yankees’ game or possibly riding bikes down the shore. There most definitely would have been cake, and smiles, and laughter, and did I mention cake. This year, similar to last year, there will be less laughter and smiles as we continue to miss Sean dearly. However, there is a reason to put a smile on our faces, and [...]

This week I celebrated my birthday

This week, I celebrated my birthday. I am always grateful to have another trip around the sun, but this year, I was more reluctant to celebrate it publicly. With Live Like Sean's release, I have had the great opportunity to tell Sean's stories to so many. Each time I recount a memory, it brings both a smile and a tear. I have been sharing many of these memories on social media and in the promotion of [...]
