Open House in Joe’s Memory – Never Forgotten

Well, the one-year anniversary is closing in on us. Two weeks. They say the days leading up to the anniversary are worse than the actual anniversary itself. We shall see. All I can say is I have been doing a LOT of grief work over the last few weeks. I still have moments EVERYDAY that I just can’t believe that it is all real. Where there is such great love, there is great loss.

We have been thinking for weeks about what we were going to do for this first anniversary of Joe’s death. March 6th falls on a Monday and we are planning to spend that day together as a family and go to a Mass offered in his name at our church. We wanted to get together with Joe’s friends and their families one last time to honor Joe before we move to Montana. We didn’t want to miss this opportunity to get together with the people we have loved for years, who were a part of Joe’s tribe. We are asking his classmates, rugby teammates, friends from college, firefighter friends, Delta Chi brothers, anyone who loved our Joe, to join us for food, drinks, cookies, and scotcheroos on Sunday, March 5th, from 1-5 p.m. at our home in Omaha. Please bring stories to share and pictures if you have them. They both would be a blessing to our family. Our Joe came with a big tribe, and we’d love to get together with you all one last time to honor Joe’s memory and say our goodbyes. If you need our address, please send me a message. Bellevue peeps….we moved to Omaha several years ago, so don’t head to our old house in Tregaron! If you plan on attending, please let me know so I can make sure you are fed properly!

  1. Cyndi,
    We get back from vacation late on Saturday, Mar 4. Baring unforeseen circumstances, I plan on stopping by to honor Joe’s memory. I am going to dig through my DECA photos and see if I have him in some photos. I am fairly certain I should as I took photos of everyone and I have hundreds. My heart and a prayer go out to you each time I see an email or a Facebook post. Such a very very hard year.
