As we approach Mother's Day may we remind ourselves that no matter how we choose to maneuver through that day of really painful emotions and deep, unrelenting grief, we are to do what is best for us. Don't be concerned with what others say. They don't grieve the loss of your child the way you do. Remind yourself often that this is only one day out of 365 days, and you will get through! Love, Clara


Happy Easter All

RE: The Donna Lee Matchett GOFUNDME set up by Laura Narry.
I have been contacted by a few community members regarding this account,
They were told by the organizer, Laura Narry that she had given the money to me for the funeral expenses.
I want to be clear that she has not given me any monies what so ever. She contacted me once saying she would bring the money collected but never came with it and has never contacted me since.
If you were a donor I would contact Detective Samantha Thompson, badge # 6411 at 724-773-7400, reference incident # PA21219045.
That would help any donor of this fund to get your money back.

Merry Christmas

Before the need for perfect, there was simple.
Oh, so completely simple.

A stable.
Wooden manger.
An exhausted new mother.
A terrified first-time father,
unsure of his fresh role.

Before the quest for the perfect holiday, there was a journey. A faithfully fearful passage.
Full of eager anticipation.
Following the guidance of an angel.
By the light of an unmistakable star.
Straight toward prophesied uncertainty.

Before the craziness and chaos of the holidays, there was undeniable peace.
Amidst the quiet darkness of a wooden building meant for animals, not a King.
A baby's bed made of hay.
Respectful visitors, in awe of new life.
Rest, tranquility and anxious-filled quiet.

Before chasing the mirage of perfection crept into our lives...
..a grand tree expensively prepared holiday meal
of dollars spent on gifts
..rushing from event-to-event;
from obligation-to-obligation
..working overtime to ensure a faultless experience...

..there was imperfect.
Gorgeously uncertain and incredibly simple; imperfect.

An imperfectly beautiful night that
granted each-and-every one of us
the greatest, most undeserving
Gift of all.



A lifetime of the most unmerited gift. Made possible by the sacrifice of a newborn baby. In the quiet stillness of a livestock stable. Under the majestic light of the North Star.

So humble.
So fearful.
So anticipated.
So serene.
So still.

So often forgotten.
So easy to remember.
Such a powerfully tranquil celebration.

Before the need for perfect, there was simple.

Oh, so completely...
