My son Nico died in August 2012.  

Like so many other people who have lost a family member unexpectedly and traumatically, I have searched for meaning, explanations, comfort and an understanding of his death. Nico’s life, Nico’s death and everything I’ve experienced since then has changed me.  Along the way I’ve learned a great deal and I’m sharing that with you through this blog which I hope will be part of Nico’s legacy.
