I am Logan’s mom.  Logan died at the age of 19 from a truck crash less than a half mile from home July 22, 2016.  He was my only child.  This blog is dedicated to Logan and tells the story of my life-long grief journey.  I learned after Logan’s death there is no way to escape the agony and utter loss of  his absence.  There is no gentle, easy road.  I figured out early on if I am to survive and eventually thrive, I have to walk the journey, breath by breath, then step by step.  Moving forward more than backward, but moving.  I hope my writings may help others who wake up in middle of the night drenched in sweat from a horrific dream trying to find someone out there who understands a mother’s worst nightmare.  I have had to face the nightmare squarely between the eyes and stumble on.  I am carrying on the best I know how.  There is hope in what feels like an utterly hopeless situation.  But the hope is different.  Everything is different. Welcome to …. in Logan’s shoes… a mother’s grief journey.
