your birthday. We visited the site and put a dozen red roses in a
small basket and placed them near the marker. While we were
there, the gentleman who lives across the road came over to visit.
He remembered your accident and had very kind and reassuring words
for us. He brings water to the tree and allows us to use his outside
faucet when we need to get water. The
tree doesn’t need much water now that it is about ten feet tall.
We stayed for a while alone and each of us had private
conversations with you.
we followed the usual process by stopping for a bite at the Krystal, in
your honor (we know you appreciate the significance of that).
I passed out some Chris Cards at the there and during dinner we
held hands and shared some smiles and laughed out loud a couple of
remembering the fun and funny things that happened when you were
with us. Happy Birthday
Chris, 29 forever.....sw/2-16-2007
I'm sure that you have noticed that there are no words on your web
site from your mother's visit on Mother's Day. I
watched her that day and didn't like what I saw. Most of all
I just don't know what to do about it. She was so down and
hurt and very disillusioned that day and for a number of days
after. She was counting on a connection that has been
broken. As your mom and I talked then and since, I learned
that you told her in the Spring of 2002, on Mother's Day actually,
that some people will say or do almost anything to ultimately
get what they want, and that some, even those you believe you share
a "forever" bond with, will turn on you. As you
know, It really hurts when you think someone is really close and
will always be around to talk, and then cuts you off. I
can only imagine how it hurt your Mom to be shut
out like that, especially after putting aside her own pain to
be there for someone. You warned your mom about
that. She didn't want to believe it, and neither did I.
Now I do. I just removed a phone number from my list.
Cried. Chris we have talked about this over the past year
while I am driving to and from work. Thanks once again for
listening and putting up with me. I
waited way to long before posting this...sw/8-05-2008
Another day to
remember the last one... when we visited with Dee Dee and then went
for an evening sail. Another day missing you.
We love you forever...
on our way to the mountains we stopped by to spend some time and place the
Christmas wreath under your tree. The tree has really grown and
needs some trimming. Miss Gracie blue joined us and it is her first
trip on the long road.
We have a new side walk
installed. A young man spoke with us and we learned that he and his
boss had made sure that the sidewalk and their work did not disturb your
tree. His name is Juan and was very nice to us. He even played
a bit with Gracie blue.
Chris you already know that
Sophie is not with us on this trip, she will spend Christmas with you...sw/1-05-2009
