Eleven years have passed. Arthur and Marion attempt to move on in the aftermath of the tragic loss of their only child, Jennifer. Passion for Staying Put was a semi-finalist in the 2013 John Kenneth Galbraith Short Story Writing Award Competition.
As a mother and a grandmother I cannot imagine anything more devastating than to experience the loss of a child. To move on; get over it; get on with life must be near impossible yet there are many who, like the characters in this story, do find a way to take the steps from one day into the next. To write about such a life event was an emotional experience for me. God bless all who lose a child yet find the inner strength to carry on.
