Starting Over (Unforgettable Faces & Stories)


The loss of family members early in my life has been extremely difficult, and most recently I lost my dad to lung cancer and was with him til the end. I have been trying to figure out how to deal with death due to it being so much a part of my life. Most people will deal with loss at some point in their lifetime. The past two years have been depressing, complicated, and dark. In receiving two treasures last year, my dad’s dog tags, and my grandmother’s chandelier, it meant so much to me, my attitude, and my outlook on my own life. I felt their presence and their love all around me. I knew that others in my situation had to feel the same way. If so, I wanted to help. So that became my mission….to help others talk about their loved ones who have passed and to tell their stories of their own personal keepsakes. Our military is very precious to me. We owe so much to our veterans that have served and protected our country. So this became my theme of my second book. People were so excited, emotional, happy, and sad all in one, but it was all good. We laughed and cried talking about memories and stories of loved ones. Sometimes, those feeling are buried deep down due to the crazy hectic lives we all live, and sometimes it just hurts too much to think or talk about. Everyone’s comments were so supportive and positive. It really became a healing to all and made people feel good. So, in this hectic life, I have decided to run a series of books titled “Unforgettable Faces and Stories”. We all need to stop and think about people in our lives, both past and present, and stories of those unforgettable magic moments.

Eileen is available for speaking engagements to talk about how writing can be a beneficial part of the healing process and how she got started on this journey.



What happens when you start over…begin again. Nobody likes starting over. Sometimes life’s situation forces you to whether you want to or not. There are those of us who love the thrill and excitement of a new adventure and throw ourselves right in to a new beginning. But it is hard, really hard, and scary. This is why so many of us stay in a job we hate, and unhealthy relationships. It is easier than staring over. But starting over can be so exciting, so liberating, and so rewarding. I would love each and every one of you to consider starting over in something today, learn something new. Begin again. As you read these stories of people starting over, some by their own choice, some not, visualize yourself in an area of your own life about starting over….a new beginning. It will be worth it for you in the long run.
