I’m a son, husband, father, grandpa, retired railroad mechanic, story teller and the author of Back to Tonic – The story of my journey through grief and broken faith. Book
I’m a survivor of the brokenness that haunts parents faced with the death of a child.
I love God, family, wading for smallmouth bass and the Chicago Cubs.
I hate that some people think an encouraging response to tragedy is: “Everything happens for a reason”
This blog: Patchwork is my collection of random short stories about family, faith, grief and an occasional personal rant to keep my blood pumping.
I hope you enjoy the ramblings of this simple old rail-roader, who most often recruits his wife in the writing of these stories.
