It's Fall Again

The Fall season has arrived and it looks like Winter will be here tomorrow.

Christie would have loved it! She loved cozying up when it was cold outside and her favorite robe and slippers are ready for her on her chair.

We had a memorial service at the ranch back in August. It was mostly people from the church but some of Christie's friends and business partners attended and paid their respects. She knew a lot of nice people.

She didn't want a stone so we respected her wishes and put her ashes in with a new aspen tree near the house. This was we'll always see something living to remind us of her life.

Her kids are doing fine. Amy is taking care of Lizzy who was born back in February and the other kids get to have love from five parents.

Losing Christie was like losing my anchor in the world and in the middle of trying to mourn her loss I also had to step up and start trying to be the leader that she was and I know I will never be able to do that like she did. You never really appreciate everything that someone does until they're not doing it anymore and then it still has to be done.

There was someone great who said that he didn't achieve much in life because he stood on the shoulders of giants and I feel the same way.

I know that we will all get used to our new normal but right now it's still very hard and it's even harder to think of the holidays ahead where we will miss Christie being our everything.

Please forgive me for not writing more on here or on email it's just that every time I try I just end up crying and not able to get anything done.

You are all deeply appreciated and I still covet your prayers for our family.

God bless you all!
