sunshine field Pictures, Images and Photos
Missing Rie Rie is easier if it's done in the sunshine.  It's hard to be sad when it's so beautiful outside... yesterday I sat and sunned, and watched Sarah sleep in her car seat in the shop.  I watched the sky from a hot black seat on the four wheeler while Luke prepared the drill for sowing wheat.  I watched him work while I was lazy and it was nice... nice and quiet for remembering beautiful things... nice to see him at his work because I often don't get to watch him.  Nice to see Sarah sleeping peacefully, nice knowing Josie was happy to be at school on a Tuesday, nice to picture Marie running through fields of Heaven like the fields of home, and nice to feel the sun on my back.  Right now, that's enough.

Shannon, that is a beautiful thought that Marie is running in the fields of heaven. I truly believe that she is running with my Bernadette and they are having a blast!! I also believe that my parents and your grandparents are loving on both of them.

Jerry and I understand what you and Luke are going through and we are thinking and praying for both of you. We are thinking and praying for Josie and Sarah also!

Take care give Josie and Sarah a kiss from their cousins in Philadelphia and please know we love all of you!!
