Dear Girls:
I just received an email that I thought was worth sharing.

"Unlike a physical would the healing of the heart and the soul is non visible and unmeasurable. There is no "right time" that works consistently for everyone. There is no "right method" to speed up the process. Each individual must experience the emotions in their own way and on their own timeline. The best advice of this individual who lost her husband 5 years ago, is to be kind to yourselves. Putting too many expectations on how progression should happen is exhausting. Let the tears come, let the laughter come and ALWAYS know the one we loved so much and had to say goodbye to will always live on through us."

The person saying this also told of her favorite movie this past year. It was the "Book of Life". An animation that is gorgeously done full of color and beautiful music. The move takes it's viewers on a journey of the life after death and the importance of remembering those that go before us to ensure they do not end up in the land of the forgotten. This simple children's move gives a beautiful perspective on why we commemorate our loved ones. I am looking forward to seeing the movie and hope that maybe you girls and anyone who reads this post will check it out. Remembering the good helps to heal the heart. Dwelling on the bad things that happen keep us stuck.

God Bless.

P.S. Thanks for the letter, Jenny. Will write you soon.

Hi Dad, Yep another Super Bowl is here and you are not! And to top it all off, it's another Super Bowl and the Seahawks are playing in it!! What gives? You go right up there and sit on their bench? So don't let anyone in on this but I MAY let a few cheers for them cross my lips today! BUT only because I so dislike the NE Patriots! I can see you doing the happy dance now! All is well here Dad. I am very happy. I so miss you and our visits, I hope you are listening when I talk to you. I miss you terribly. You are Seattles top #12!!! Enjoy the game! I love you!!!!

Well Skip,
We are just upon the weekend of Super Bowl Sunday. Thought I would let you know that Alex made a very poofy blue and green tutu to celebrate the Hawks going to the big game. She also got an official NFL Seahawks stocking hat, scarf and socks for Christmas. On her birthday she got a Seahawks sweatshirt and some t-shirts. She will be all decked out on Sunday to watch the game. After the win against the Packers, she went on-line (that means she went on the computer, which I still think you had hidden in your closet and just pretended to be stupid about computers so you wouldn't have to use one) and bought herself an official NFL Kam Chancellor jersey, with her own money she had saved. She wore all this crazy stuff with the exception of her socks to school today. She wore her blue socks to school for "Blue Friday" as she has been doing throughout the entire football season. No changes due to the fear of bad luck. On Sunday, she will wear the same outfit, but will include her Seahawks socks. If you were here, I know you would most likely be wearing the same tutu with your Jesus slippers right along with Alex. I think you would have a tough time trying to decide who you would be watching the game with this year - Alex or your girls and grandkids. On second thought, you would probably kidnap Alex and take her with you so you could watch the game with those you love most. I can't help but think that you must have had something to do with the win against the Packers and gave them a little pep talk at half-time, or should I say a butt chewing :) to get their act together. Just wanted you to know that I am thinking about you and miss you.

Hello Jenny,

Thank you for the Christmas Card. I misplaced your CA address and have been thinking about you and your sisters all through the holiday season. Not to mention, my continual thoughts of Skip. I saved some of Skip's ashes when we went out on the boat and have not been able to part with them. I am thinking of spreading some in the park by his sign in the spring and hope that is okay with you all. I also keep the rock he gave me in my purse at all times and remember his words "I will always be with you". His picture above remains on my frig at the FH with the picture of his chair that Rob Brooke gave me last summer. Don't think I will ever take them down. I also have a picture of him and Alex on my desk that I look at many times a day. "We will never forget".
Sounds like things are good for you in CA and I wish you the very best. If you ever get up this way again, please come see us. Keep in touch and please send me your address again.

Love & Hugs to All (Jill, Julie & Joanna & all the grandkids . . . . )

Hi Dad, So it has been a while since I visited and things have been changing. Change is good! I am living in California. I re met my soulmate! I know you know what that means, I wish you had had more time to experience the joy that comes with it. I hope I have not disappointed you. I wish you were here to see and meet him, but I know you are watching over us and I thank you for that. I miss you terribly. I love you so very much. - Jenny

Well, Skip. Yesterday was a beautiful day here in Bayview as we placed your "Skip's Place" sign in the Children's park that you worked so hard to make happen. Carl & Paul were instrumental in refinishing the sign and making this happen. Several community members and several of your family members were here.We know that you were with us in spirit.
