How Do You Say Good-bye

March 12th, 2009

As I sit here this afternoon, I am filled with so many different emotions that come from the journey called life. As Courtney already has mentioned before tonight we will be saying good-bye to one of my family’s best friends. I am not sure where I want to take this, I am not sure if I should reminisce about a lifetime of happy memories, or talk about this thing that always has been sitting in the back of my head, and comes out at these particular times. In my short 19 years of life I have been blessed to have only had one significant death in my entire family, that was back in 2004 (I hope that is right, I have such a bad memory), my Great-Grandma “Cookie” died in June and it was the hardest thing that I have ever had to go through in my entire life. To be honest sometimes I wonder why it was so hard, for the simple fact that to be honest I was never that close to Grandma Cookie, in fact there were times when I was younger that I was scared of her! Those of you in the family that are reading this are probably thinking what is the kid talking about? Grandma Cookie scary? What in the heck are you talking about? To be perfectly honest I am not sure and it is kind of beside the point. So I remember going to the hospital that day and walking up to her room. She was laying there in bed, her eyes were open. She was there surrounded by all of her loved ones that had come to say good-bye. Until that moment I did not realize how little I had really known this amazing woman. Grandma passed away later that day and I was devastated. I later realized what was so hard for me was that I never had any “real” memories with her in them. From that moment on, I decided that I was going to have those memories with the people and things I care most about in my life. Grandma taught me one final thing while she was with us, it is that no matter what we all must say good-bye at some point in our life, and we never know when that point will be. It was an interesting lesson that a fourteen year old boy learned one June day, and it is one that he has surely not forgotten. So as I go into tonight, I will be thinking of Grandma-Cookie and that lesson that she taught me, that lesson that is passed down from generation to generation, the lesson of how to say good-bye!

God Bless You Casey, and thank you for all the happiness that you have given to this family!

And God Bless You Grandma Cookie, for teaching me one of life’s most important lessons!

Love to both, and to all of you!

I HATE THIS PART RIGHT HERE!

March 11th, 2009

tomorow night will be one of the hardest nights of my life. one of my best friends will be put down… when i got in trouble and felt like had no one to talk to i would have her. when i had a bad day at school i would talk to her. all the things i put her through…oh my i cant even imagine it. dressing her up, putting her in a stroller and pushing her around, carring her by the neck, these are many adventures i have gone through with casey. From the day we took her in to the vet when i found the bump…i thought was going to be the hardest. i think this is one of the hardest things to go through. i remember the news thought casey was going to be in a cast but nope…she was on medicine…i thought that was the time i cried most but nope think again tonight is. and so i hate this part right here. but we will all make through it….
I love this dog so much and will always. she always has the biggest part of my heart for a dog!
i love her.

February 27th, 2009

Well all is going well in Lecherville. Tony stlill has a job, for this we are very thankkful. Brandon is still planning on coming back to Casper in the very near future, we are glad about that, but on the other hand we are not so sure. We will miss him lots!!!!!! Best of luck to you Big B, hope everything goes as planned. Nate, welll your guess is as good as mine. He always has something up his sleeve. I sure hope he realizes how inmportant it is to have a plan. But not sure he does!!! Natie had an awesome year at wrestling this year, he just has not figured that out yet! I understand that when you don’t do what you are expected to do it is very difficult, but he will see the light soon, I hope! I believe he will have many oppertunities to wrestle in college if he so choices. We hope he does, so it won’t cost so much. Well, little sis is doing just great. She has been very busy with volleyball try-outs. She is an amazing athelet, so we are sur she will make the team. (varsity if I am guessing).Keegan is getting ready for all state wrestling, he has to weigh in tonight. All seventy four pounds of him. He is such a great kid, we are very proud. Everyone sy a prayer for him to do well. We apperciate all the help we can get. Well our neice Ashley is dancing ing Billlings this weekend, we wish her the very best! Although she really does not need it, because she is awesome as it is. Good Luck Ashley!!!!!! Well it has been very nice talking to you all I better get going now. LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!
