West Texas has always been my home, and Lubbock has been my work-home for 22 years as a hairstylist. My husband Joe and I have 4 children, Daniel (23), Zane (Forever 16), KaiDyn (12) and Riot (10). Daniel is married to Adrianna and together they have our wild and crazy 4 year old grandson Zeagan. KaiDyn and Riot, whom are siblings, are adopted and have been with us since January of 2018! Joe and I are actively involved in a Suicide Prevention and Awareness Program with our Pastor, Amanda Ullrich. I am here as a mom, a grandmother, a friend, and just someone who has been there. I'm here to talk.

Everyone has lost someone close to them. Well, almost everyone. For the ones who have, there are specific phrases, words, poems, songs, pictures, movies, or even faces that remind them of their loved ones....

Oh That Hug
