my heart is broken. my husband is gone.

his obituary

thank you to everyone for the love and generosity. i am not ready to share the story here and i don't know when i will be...

toodles for now lovers.




  1. I wish I had words to express how sorry I am for your loss. Having to say goodbye to someone for the last time is something I wish never had to happen to anyone.
    I don't know the rules of Internet or blogging so I hope this isn't out of order but I've been following along with your blog nearly since you began it (also hope that doesn't sound stalker-ish) and it's kept me going while living in Oregon and missing my home state of Utah. Thank you for sharing your adventures and photographs and again, I'm really sorry about your loss and I'm sure if you go up to another glorious mountainside you'll see him again.

  2. Your Owen was well-loved and you were lucky to have each other. My heart is broken for you too. You have been incredibly brave and graceful this week. That's a testament to your love for Owen. I'm thinking about you and hoping that you'll find peace even if you run out of bravery and grace. Love you.

  3. I keep trying to find something to say that will be enough. Something that will actually help, or that will somehow be able to express how deeply all of this has affected me. But there are just no words big enough. I am at a complete loss and all I can think of is just that I'm so sorry and I love you and my heart is just shattered. And I wish that somehow I could do something that could take away even just an ounce of the anguish you're feeling. I wish I could hug you tight enough to make it all go away. But I am thinking about you and praying for you often. I am sorry. And I do love you fiercely. ((hugs))

  4. You took the words right out of my mouth!! Ditto to all of it..
