A Memoir Of My Son ~ Forever Will ~
This is a blog dedicated to our only beloved son William "Will" Vincent Alexander Reynolds...logging our journey through the grief of losing our son, long before his time. I hope others can find help and hope through their journey as well.
A View of Photography Put To Words
This is "my place"....my little spot in the great big world.
I endeavor to use the insight of the written word, coupled with the art of my photography to share with others...that perhaps I might encourage someone along the way, through the things I have experienced in my own life.
It is my desire to be an inspiration to others and share with them the hope that can be found in even the hardest of times.
It is a place where I can write and journal through my heartbreaks to find joy again., to attain healing as I allow the Master of the Universe to cover me with His mercy and grace, to share new discoveries, and keep myself on track as I strive to attain my goals and learn to live again,..trust again...believe again and have a hope that no tragedy or trial can rip from my grasp, because I am holding to fast to the hand of my Heavenly Father.
I invite you to share this journey with me....after all, who knows what God has in mind for us in this new year? I am anxious to find out...
This is a resourceful website for Online Photography Classes, Newsletters, Photo Galleries, Contests, and the abilities to create your own basic gallery or full website.
I've taken quite a few online classes with their professional photography instructors and each class was interesting, informative and challenging. I enjoyed the ability to be able to work on the weekly lessons and assignments, at my own pace in the comfort of my home.
The instructors are over-the-top!
I hope to be able to take a few more classes in the future.

Grief Support After the Death of a Child
“The Compassionate Friends is about transforming the pain of grief into the elixir of hope. It takes people out of the isolation society imposes on the bereaved and lets them express their grief naturally. With the shedding of tears, healing comes. And the newly bereaved get to see people who have survived and are learning to live and love again.”

Mothers Against Drunk Driving
MADD was incorporated on September 5, 1980.
The mission of Mothers Against Drunk Driving is to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking. If you or someone you know has been a victim, please pass along this link as it offers support and help to others who have experienced the devastation caused by drunk driving.
A site dedicated to grieving moms/families & founded by Denise Howard. She also lost her son in a tragic car accident.
It was Sean Sullivan's mom, Denise, who first reached out to our family after William's accident in December.
She has helped me through the hardest time of my life.
I do not know what I would have done without her & the Grief Share groups she leads.
She also brought our family the very 1st care basket of the Sean Sullivan Project.
I now help with that part of the project, donating my photo skills to help personalize the baskets with photo lockets/key-chains/mugs/magnets etc. I know 1st hand how much that basket meant to us, given so graciously, by another hurting mom on that first Christmas Eve a few weeks after our son was killed.
God Bless you D!
P.S. I will be dedicating a Gallery on this web page in honor of the children we have lost through any means. I want to make a place to help us all see each beautiful child we nurtured & cherished so deeply for the short time we had them with us.
It will be called the Gallery of Sweet Loving Memories. Only the photos of Our William have been taken by myself. All others will be provided by other children's parents.
P.S. All donations to this Project are tax deductible & proceeds go to help provide funds for the care baskets. The project offers resources where grieving parents can find support through the Grief Share programs.
The Sean Sullivan Project also sponsors The Compassionate Friends World-Wide Candle Lighting annual event the 2nd Sunday every December...It helps us keep the light of our child's love alive and is a very beautiful ceremony.
Love, Susan Reynolds
"In memory of my beautiful, beloved & only son, William Vincent Alexander Reynolds & on behalf of The Sean Sullivan Project who first reached out to me!
