Leave your memory here:
  • Wow, 4 years later.... still does not seem real. Still feels like that time of year to start thinking about when you will be home for the summer. When will you be back? Will you stay home for good this year? Maybe you are really "home" now. But that can't stop us from missing you all terribly. Even though there are bits of peace and hope, it still hurts. I guess it will always be that way..... LOVE

    They say time heals all wounds but in this case its simply not true. I miss them dearly and still have that ache in my heart and lump in my throat. I was never religious until now and I pray everyday to see them again. I know they are happy wherever thy are. My thoughts are with the Casey family and Schuessler family always.

    I was reading my mom's notes recently on how to prepare her full Thanksgiving dinner. She took the time to write it out in great detail , step by step because this was our first ever Thanksgiving away from home. Mom wrote that you need to, "boil the liver, heart etc for the gravy.." but that once this was done we could "carefully cut these up and feed them to Stella. She would really enjoy them." My heart literally skipped a beat reading this and then the memories of Stella and Jill, Stella and Mike came flooding in. Mike trying to pretend she was a seeing eye dog at The Mirage in Vegas (they got as far as the elevator) and instead Jill took her to Red Rock Canyon to camp for the weekend. The wonderfully prepared meals of hamburg and scrambled eggs Jill made for her was always impressive. The memories of walking up Cache Creek's Putt Putt trail with Jill and Stella returns to me so vividly every time I'm there. And til this day Stella rests up on Teton Pass where both Jill and Mike buried her under, per Jill, Stella's favorite tree. I wish I could remember where that tree was. I'd like to have a visit with them from there. I wish we could reminisce these memories together. I wish I could get one more loud belly laugh from Jill with head thrown back and her exclaiming, "Mare!" I wish it wouldn't have been so many years gone by that we didn't see eachother. I will forever wish peace for their friends and family. Maire

    Some time has passed since I've visited here, but I'm really happy to see the beautiful posts continuing as I expected they would.
    Time for introspection is hard to come by these days but I'm regularly brought back to thoughts of my friends through mundane tasks, tender moments with the kids, etc. But more often than anything by music. It's the music that provides the hard-wired direct connection and unfettered access to the love and lament for my friends. It's the music that brings tears quickly - no longer for the raw pain but for having been amongst great beauty and no longer being able to access it.
    It was China Doll off of 'Reckoning' that surged on me the other day, thinking of the 'sweet pain' and moments of great seriousness that Mike had - moments that only a person of great sincerity could carry with them.
    Or tonight, listening randomly to Here Come De Honeyman off of Joe Henderson's Porgy and Bess that reminded me of seeing that long-ago concert with Gretchen, Jill, Montagano, and myself in Boston. Another in a zillion examples of Jill's effortless ease and friendship that made one realize about themselves (without angst) that their own pretensions are silly and that the importance of the moment, of being together and sharing those moments, was the point of it all.
    Melancholy as these moments can be, I feel so lucky to get such sweet reminders of them both.

    Happy 3rd birthday to my dear, sweet Brycie! I think of you always and wonder who you'd be, what would your favorite toys be, would you be passive or wild like Makayla, would you be independent or a snuggler? But most of all, I just want to hold you, and rub the top of your hair with my lips savoring the soft shinny feel of your hair, feel your fingers wrapped around mine, and hear your voice that hadn't yet uttered a real word. I imagine it all, and am so saddened. All I know is that some day I will again. For now, I know that you are with your Mom and Dad and Makayla and all the others who love you in heaven. Look for your 3 blue baloons today and make a wonderful wish when you blow out your candles. I love you.
