A Grief Expressed

About

My name is Steven Shomler and on February 8th ,2016 my 17 year old son Zayne Steven Shomler passed away and I began a brutal grieving journey. This website will chronicle my grieving journey and it will serve as a place where I can post my general thoughts on grieving. I believe that grieving is healthy and I believe that crying is how we heal and I  know that grieving is like going to the bathroom – when you don’t do it bad things happen.

Why

I am a writer and an author and shortly after Zayne’s passing I  found that I had to write about this heart wrenching journey. I had to express this grief. I felt compelled to do so.

I bought the domain AGriefExpressed.com on February 14th, six days after Zayne’s passing, and the day after I had officiated his memorial service. It is now March 7th, 2016  and I have begun.

Also — In the weeks following Zayne’s passing I shared some of my grieving journey on my personal Facebook profile www.facebook.com/shomler and I got feedback from people that my doing so blessed them.

The thing is, there was sooo much more that I wanted to post about this awful path I was walking and I knew that posting too much of it on my facebook profile would simply bum people out.
