Losing a dear friend isn't easy. Knowing that he isn't suffering and that he is with a loving Heavenly Father gets all of us through the hard times. As is the wonderful memories that goes with a life well lived. Losing Bill wasn't easy, seeing my father break down was extremely difficult, re-connecting with old friends was wonderful.

IF I can learn anything from my dad and Bill it is that of friendship. Miles and years can distance individuals, however, true bonds can and do last a lifetime.

My wonderful husband wasn't able to come for the first trip. However, he was able to come with me for the services and it allowed us to see some of the beautiful sites around Fruita and Grand Junction Colorado.
These pictures were taken in Colorado's National Monument. The one above is just a view taken from the visitor center. The picture on the right is Independence Rock. Needless to say it was adding to our case of extreme Spring Fever.

And lastly, here is a picture of me. Now you can put a face behind this blog!!

I am sorry that I haven't posted. It has been CRAZY around here. Two trips in less then a week to beautiful Grand Junction/Fruita Colorado. It was extremely sad as my family and I lost a dear dear friend. However, it was good as I got to see some very dear friends that I haven't seen in many years.
I don't have whole lot of time as I am leaving to go across the state to Gillette, Wyoming. It will be a 10 hour road to attend a EMS trauma conference. I am looking forward to the conference BUT I hate being away from the love of my life! He is my best friend and I am not whole when I am not with him.
