Yesterday was Derek's birthday, he would have been 22, but left this world at 17 and a half..... Dale would have been 30 on January 30th..... left at 15 though.... I think it is natural to try and picture them how they would look at this age now..... would they be dads? would they have kids? they would be coming over to see the old man.... showing off a new truck.... then it hits me..... time froze and they are forever 15 and 17...... today I search for meaning, and find none, I look for resolution and it is an open void..... I try to put it in context of a God and then find myself hating Him, if I put spiritual logic to it..... a wheel fell off the wagon and there's no putting it back.... I hope Heaven is a great place, and I hope it is for the kids more than anyone..... us old ones don't need no heaven, but the young ones deserve it....

Miss ya buddies!

Thinking of Dale and this day in 1994 when he went hiking with friends on a river in Oregon, age 15. RIP Dale, thinking of you, son and love you much. God Bless. All I pray is that there is nothing but comfort and joy for you now.

Derek, Five years ago son, this was a sad day. You hung on so bravely trying to stay with us but couldn't. Like Dale, it has taken me five years or so to just come to an inner acceptance that it truly happened and the world is this way now. I do know you're OK..... The sadness of you guys being gone tints all grey except when I can forget for small periods.... All I can do now is try to be a better person for the honor of y'all......

RIP
