Tune in to a live broadcast of the Emotional Wisdom Training radio show on Friday, May 5 from 1:00 to 1:50 pm EST on W4CY.com as I am joined by Eileen Doyon.
Eileen and I are connected through knowing that sharing our stories makes a difference for us and for others.
The loss of family members early in Eileen’s life has been extremely difficult, and most recently she lost her father to lung cancer and was with him until the end. She struggled to figure out how to deal with death due to it being so much a part of her life. The past few years have been depressing, complicated, and dark for Eileen. In receiving two treasures, her father’s dog tags, and her grandmother’s chandelier, it changed her attitude and outlook on her 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.”
That became Eileen’s mission: to help others talk about their loved ones who have passed and to tell the stories of their own personal keepsakes.
The military is very precious to Eileen who feels we owe so much to veterans that have served and protected our country. This became the theme of her second book in her series, Unforgettable Faces and Stories. She has released six books: Dedications: Dads and Daughters (2013), Keepsakes; Treasures from the Heart (2013), Best Friends: Forever and Ever (2013), Pet Tales: Unconditional Love (2014) listed on Amazon’s Best Sellers list, Letters to Heaven (2015), also listed on Amazon’s Best Sellers list, and most recent, The Second My Life Changed Forever. Please visit her website www.UnforgettableFacesandStories.com.
Eileen grew up in the small town of Fort Edward in upstate New York. She left there in 1978 and now lives in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. She enjoys gardening and traveling on her motorcycle visiting new places, familiar places, and meeting new friends. She is a member of Pease Greeters in Portsmouth, New Hampshire welcoming troops passing through Pease International Airport on their way to, or from, Afghanistan or Iraq, or any other areas of conflict in any part of the world.
