Surviving Grief…and Holding onto Hope

Laura Lustig

My daughter Laura Lustig.

 On June 9, 2013 I gave a talk at Seattle Children’s Hospital during an annual memorial service for parents who’ve lost a child. Because it was deeply personal, I didn’t plan to share this with anyone else. But in the nearly two years since, I’ve changed my mind.

 Eventually, we all suffer losses. On the chance, this might help you deal with yours, I’m making this available. Also, it’s a way of honoring my daughter Laura (who would’ve turned 22 today) as well as some of the other dear people I’ve lost over the years. Happy Birthday, Laura.

As parents one of the first things we have to learn is patience. Patience because kids do things at their own speed. Patience because kids rarely do things when we want them to—which is immediately.

And patience because kids always expect us to do things for them when they want us towhich is immediately!

Patience—a different sort of patience—is even more important now.

I’ve been blessed to have had three children. Blessed even though two of them have died. (more…)

What?!! The dance began and ended before dinner? Did they have drinks and sex before dinner too?

LAST KISS Appears on BIG BANG This Week? In THEORY…Yes!

big-bang-theory-103900

I would like to say that Last Kiss is definitely, positively and absolutely going to be on the most popular comedy in America this week.

But I really won’t know until the season finale of THE BIG BANG THEORY airs this Thursday, May 7.

However, I can tell you that staff from the CBS show did contact my guy in Hollywood (John Fluke of Placed 4 Success) and request that I rush three pieces of Last Kiss art to them for this episode. So, we’ll see!

Last Kiss Pops on Bilgrey’s Blog

Writer-Cartoonist Marc Bilgrey has been a Last Kiss fan for many years and recently his enthusiasm burst out in the form of this wonderful post he did about me on his blog.

It’s always great when someone else in the business praises your work, but it’s especially nice when it’s someone as accomplished as Marc.

Marc has also written for comedians, nationally syndicated comic strips, and for TV. He’s also the author of fantasy-humor novels (And Don’t Forget To Rescue The Princess), numerous short stories, comic books (The New Tales from the Crypt) and a contributor to Mad Magazine.

Thanks, Marc!
