  • To my friend, Kris

    Dear Kris,

    Last year, I stumbled upon a CNN article entitled, “I have got terminal cancer. Here is why I am prioritizing travel.” The article shared how you were diagnosed at 48 years old with late stage four colon cancer. Despite the diagnosis, you remained committed to the activities that bring you joy in life, which include spending time with…read more

    When I got the message from Lauren, I took some moments to reflect, grieve and hope. In my history, 2018, my father was diagnosed with cancer, I was 5 months pregnant with my second born living in a different state, So scared and afraid and helpless, What could I do for him? Even if I was close, Nothing, So from afar, All I did, that was not easy…read more

  • What I learned from you Kris

    Kris:
    I read the letter you wrote for the unsealed the day it was posted. While your diagnosis saddened me, your approach to your battle inspired me. Far too many people worry about the bills and other life stresses and take the time they have left on earth for granted. They put off doing the things that make them happy and spending time with the…read more

    Hi Kris,

    WOW, that piece/video brought me to tears!

    Obviously some were sad, BUT some were filled with GRATITUDE because of YOUR OUTLOOK in LIFE!

    You are a GREAT TOUR GUIDE for your SON and WIFE in LIFE: CONTINUE bei…read more

  • Positivity Wins

    Dear Kris,

    I remember the day I read the letter you wrote with Lauren. I had to stop several times to dry tears from my eyes. You see my Dad is battling cancer right now so it was very personal to me. The thoughts about what you’re both going through saw fit to overwhelm my emotions in that moment. My emotions usually are pretty open so I w…read more

  • You Raise Me Up

    Dear Kris,
    I first heard about your story on CNN. It was a most touching story about your serious illness and your love of travel with your family. My daughter, Lauren was lucky enough to be able to reach you. She wanted to interview you for The Unsealed. You were so gracious with your time. I read your words that you expressed to…read more

  • Dear Matante Elaine,

    From the moment I was born you were mine. My parents had chosen you to be my godmother, a duty which you took very seriously. When I look back you were always there for every one of my milestones; my Baptism, my first few words, my first steps, my first haircut, my Confirmation and First Communion, my high school graduation. You were even…read more

    Passionate or Toxic Relationship?

    You said things would be different this time. I had faith in you and I really believed it this time. I guess sometimes it’s easy to fool yourself. You feel like you’ve put so much time into a relationship so you don’t want to feel like it’s all been wasted and so you stay even though you think it might be better to walk away. Some people say the…read more

    My charming boy George

    Dear George,

    You were meant to be a part of our family. After losing the dog that we had since I was in Kindergarten my mom claimed we weren’t getting another dog. But my dad convinced her to open her heart up again, and this time all roads lead to you….literally. You traveled from Georgia to Maine as a puppy. At the shelter, my parents obs…read more

  • Dear Sister

    Dear sissy,

    You are my older sister, even though people mistook us being daughter and parent. We are fifteen years apart, a huge age gap, but we never really saw the bad in it.

    However, you were like a mom to me in many ways. You said when I was younger, I would always say I want to go, and I would grab on your leg. You basically took me…read more

    • Wow, your sister reminds me of my older sister. I as well look up to her and so does my other siblings she was like our mother because she definitely took care of us more than our actual mom. Your sister would be so proud of you and I’m glad you have someone like her to guide you.

  • Fate's Embrace

    Dear Lauren,

    I didn’t know how powerful a random photo I took on a cold morning would become. It was 2018 and I took a photo of a westbound train in snowy cold Berea, Ohio. That photo would be the very beginning of fates intervention into my life. A single notification of a liked photo became the catalyst to a new, more positive era in my life.…read more

      I remember you sharing this in the writing workshop. I’m glad you posted and shared your experience. It’s funny how fate works when we meet people! Over a picture too, which was just wild and so cool. I liked how Lauren pushed you out of your comfort zone, but you didn’t feel uncomfortable and you guys got to meet up. The genuine…read more

      • Danni,

        It was only the location I was initially uncomfortable with. As usual there was a fair bit of anxiety with meeting someone new. I remember you spoke of having GAD and I to a fair degree have it as well. At the time I met Lauren I had not told her about the story from July yet. I had feared that story might cast a shadow on who I am, I…read more

          Of course, no problem! I also get about going to new places and meeting new people. Anxiety has a funny way to make us see the shadow of ourselves instead of the full stage. I understand about defense mechanisms, keeping people at arms length and trying to read this person intentions like a profiler. But I’m glad Lauren made you feel c…read more

          • Thank you! It was just 2 degrees when I snapped this photo and I was holding my camera with bare hands. Not to mention this train was traveling approximately 55mph so as it passed I was hit by an extremely cold gust of wind that sent me retreating to the warmth of my car. It was there that I transferred the photo from my camera to my phone with a…read more

    Dear Vernon,

    The odds of us crossing paths were slim, but the domino effect of connecting with you was life-changing.

    When I tell people I know you, their first question is often, “How?” You played in the NFL while I was still in elementary school. You live in Texas. I have only visited the Lone Star state a few times. Our friendship came out…read more

    Dear Sweet Honey,

    Where did all the time fly by? It almost feels like it was only a couple years ago when we first adopted you when you were two years old. You became a part of the family on June 11, 2009, which was 13 years ago! I had always wanted a dog ever since I could talk. Mom would avoid the conversation of getting a dog every time I…read more

    Trenches Below the OCD Tunnel

    Dear Unsealers,

    I write this poem today to not fixate on my problems with OCD but to demystify OCD and fight through the silent sufferings that overtake me on countless days like this. I just want to provide an outlet for those who are in the throws of OCD or other mental illness.

    Awoke this morning with urgency on my mind,
    There never feels…read more

      It’s so brave of you to share this with your struggles and put it in beautiful poetic words!

      I like how you poem reminds me of slam poetry, it’s to the point and I can imagine a beat when I read through it. I like your own interpretation with how you deal with OCD. I feel like everyone might have different or relatable experinces . I…read more
