I'm going to need your support next Thursday, June 18th.

Dear DC Family,

Next Thursday, June 18th, will be the first anniversary of Buck’s death and I’m trying to find a way to make my way through it and am asking for your help. It would give me great comfort if you would share some of your fondest/funniest/most memorable things you have in your heart about him. Doesn’t have to be elaborate. Just something you’d like to share and pass along to me. You can either post them here, send them via email or by PM. I hope my mailbox runneth over and that I’ll have many wonderful things to read. I'll save the emails and PMs to read next Thursday as I raise a glass of wine to him. He was the BEST.

I’ve made my way through this last year, stumbling at times, but here I am and I must continue. Anything else would be a dishonor to Buck.

Thank you for your thoughts. You all have helped me more than I can express.

MOM/Kate/Katie/Grandma (Yes, I have lots of names, just not wife anymore.)

Buck was always making us laugh! He loved to play, but, he was also one of the first to cry with us too, when we had things going on. He is still the only friendship request that has gone untouched. I want it left that way too. It's a reminder of a lost friend that I will never forget!

Thanks, babe. You, and many others, have no way of knowing but Buck was cremated and the walnut box with his ashes sits on my bedside table. I do feel great comfort when I say "good night" to him each night and "good morning" when I awake. I can't tell you how many times I have had talks with him about how to do/take care of things. Amazingly, I've gotten answers. I think that's because I've talked it out loud with him and "heard" the solution as I spoke the situation out loud.

Katie, I don't have that much to add but losing a loved one changes our life in many ways. I haven't lost a husband, but can only imagine how many times a day one would remember all the little funnies and also important subjects that were discussed. You have really been an example to all of us this year and I will certainly be thinking of you on Thursday. Remember the good times and savor them.
