Today we share time with the family of Brian Trimble, Fuller Hose fire fighter, who will be laid to rest tomorrow as the result of a pedestrian-vehicle accident. Brian’s laughter and smile will be missed. Thank you, Brian, for giving of your time and self to protect our community. Thank you for sharing your family, your talents and your business with our community. You go to rest as a hero and we salute you for giving your life in your prime to serve others. Rest in peace.
Today, I was so overwhelmed by two tiny babies – my twin grand niece and nephew! How can such tiny babes make me melt into tears? Life is so precious. Welcome little ones!
Cherry Festival 2012. Great brunch today at the Whitmore block party brunch! 30 years, what a tradition! Hundreds – literally – hundreds of folks there.
Firefighter’s parade – one of the best in many ever! Watched with brother, sister-in-law and nephew and then had great dinner with them. All so terrific. Family rules!
Cancer. Silently, it comes to skewer those who dare to laugh and love life. How often I have seen it in these past six months. Who will be the next one to crash with the agony of its power over flesh? How can we see the death of cancer for the next generation? What can we do to help the wounded and weary who face this terrible monster?
Yes, I love summer, especially the warm days and walks with the hunds. Cooking on the grill with farm fresh items each week from my CSA farmer are awesome. Means I do not have to plant a garden or weed or put up fences to keep the rabbits out of the veggie patch.
Soon it will be Mother’s Day, the first one without you. I am not sure how to handle it, but I will take your teachings and be strong and proud of what you have made me to be. You have been the best mother ever and I am honored that I got to be yours!
We know we will not have you much longer, but we know we have had the best.
