I was in bootcamp with Orie. I have been looking for him now and then over the years. He was an inspiration to our troop going through training. I am very sad to see this and very sad we never re-connected later in life. God's rest Orie!

Today is when the Goodbye Services for Orie is. I was going to travel the 1580 miles to pay respect and give condolences to his friends and family and share a few O stories with everyone. Many of us called him O. O was so very close to the Christiansen family and we have loved him for a lifetime. O was part of our family. We all grew up together, watched each other grow up, and to Chris and Doris Christiansen he was like a son. O was always included in the family pictures and as a family we loved him, he even had his own room at the house several times in his life. He was more than a friend, he was our brother and a son. Funerals and celebrations of life are for the living, to give love and kindness and hold one another up and help one another grieve and say goodbye to our loved ones, or even to hold a grieving friend up who is compelled to attend and needs your personal support. I wont be physically attending. Not because of the over a thousand miles distance, its because the one that will need the most holding up and support will have that kind of love and support there for him and so will the others there. O lived loved laughed played cried struggled and the works in the Rocky Mountains areas he found comfort in and called home. This past weekend two of us did drive the 800 miles up very high into the Rocky Mountains outside of Denver. At over 9000 feet high near Silverthorne Georgetown Colorado we took O with us in our hearts and spoken memories deep into a silver mine from the 1870s. Orie loved exploring many caves and abandoned mines in the mountains. We did one more for him. We picked wild flowers and tossed them one by into the whitewater river that rushed down the mountain rocks. Each flower we held we told a memory and then tossed it in the water and watched it flow with the water. When night came we sat under the thousands of stars that are the same stars Orie loved watching all his life when he was in the mountains at night. We toasted to him in an Orie way under those stars. We said Gbye O, see ya on the other side. The heart knows no boundaries, no limits, and no separations. Tho Im not going to be there for his services my heart will be. Rest in Peace O.

Orie was gifted with a tender heart. He was always positive, never an unkind word for anyone. God took him a little early so he could rest among his friends and family. I hope he has peace and eternal happiness, he certainly deserves it for the goodness he shared.
