Sweetie, I’ve been remembering you all day. I can’t believe its been two years since you flew away. I talked to Steve a long time today and he misses you just like I do. I will go on for as long as I’m meant to, always remembering how much we were in love. You are my one and only angel.

Honey, it's our 52nd Anniversary today. This time of year with your birthday, Mother's Day, and our anniversary bring back so many memories. I am trying to live a happy and meaningful life without you. But it is hard not to have you to share our dreams and hopes. You are in my heart and will be forever.

Sweetheart, you flew away from us here on earth a year ago. Our love for each other is eternal and I think about you every minute of every day. I am so grateful that you were and still are a part of my life. Having your love truly changed my life. Knowing that you loved me made everything possible. In the time that I have left, I will continue to live life to the fullest, like we did. You still inspire me to live without fear or regret. You will be in my heart as always. I know that your beautiful soul is at Peace.

Jehovah God the Creator takes no pleasure in death and pain, and he assures us that his son Christ Jesus will be in charge of the resurrection of the dead, as stated in John 11:25 "Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life"

Happy Birthday Mommy,

This morning I woke up wanting to honor your birthday. Life has been really hard, but sometimes it helps to remember what you'd say to me if I could still call you. Other times I look for signs of your presence in the spirit realm the way Grandma and Grandpa have revealed themselves. I'm happy you're together with them there to celebrate your special day and eternal life.

I came up with some special memories of us that I'll always hold in my heart💖. I remember...

🎹going to the Liberace Museum in Vegas after having a heart-to-heart.
😂laughing until we cried ordering German food from a German waitress in Germany who refused to speak German.
👗how in 3rd grade I knew I had the prettiest mom in the world when I saw you all dressed up for a black-tie.
📺watching Santa Barbara on the couch with you almost every afternoon when I got home from high school.
🎺playing my favorite trumpet duet with you after you bought me my Bach Stradivarius.
🏡when you met your grandsons for the first time and had fun playing with them in the backyard with the life-size dollhouse.

The world needs to know how much you were and always will be loved and needed by your only son. I brought Oliver's ashes home this afternoon as another way to commemorate the day. Do me a big favor Mommy and find a big field up there to let him run like he's a puppy again🌈.

I love and miss you so much.

The first time I met Joan was when I attended Joan & Jerry's wedding. I was curious to see the type of girl who had captured my brother's heart. Joan was the perfect mix of elegance and playfulness. Their relationship of city girl and country boy embraced the best of both worlds, from bluegrass to broadway and everything in between. It was fun hearing about all of their travels and interests. I was able to visit them in Texas when I traveled with Mom to watch their horse race. We had a great visit and were treated to a piano recital by Joan, one of her many talents. I was hopeful that I would be able to get to know Joan better when they moved to Idaho but it wasn't to be. "When someone you love becomes a memory. . . that memory becomes a treasure". You are one of my treasures.

I'm pretty sure it was the first time that Kathy and I met Joan when they came out west to visit relatives. We invited them to come picnic with us in Garden Valley,where Kathy's parents lived. We drove up to find a picnic spot that was "off the main roads" and fairly far from anything. The "deeper" into the forest we went,the more worried Joan became that we were lost!Joan became convinced that we were totally lost and would never see civilization again!Since Joan was a "city" girl,I'm sure that had something to do with her fear,since she had probably never been that far off the beaten path on an old dirt road!We made it home safely ,and enjoyed our time with Jerry and Joan.

We first met Joan upon returning from assignment in Germany. We were quite nervous at first because we'd heard of her accomplishments, education and being from the "east coast". But, being newly weds, as well, she had a lot in common with Susie, and we had a great visit. That was the beginning of many visits (though far between) over the next fifty years. They came to see us in Kansas. We went to see them in Indiana. They came to see us in Alabama and Kentucky. We got together in Montana, and Idaho. Our kids got along famously. They came to Las Vegas for Susie's funeral. A few years later, they came to Las Vegas to attend Dawn and my wedding. Joan was always brave, yet reserved to join the "Kulm clan" at gatherings. Once, in Las Vegas, I think she stepped out of her comfort zone, and we went to the local casino. We sat at a Blackjack table together, and I taught her how to play. We had so much fun and laughed a lot! And, she won $75! Jerry, the math professor, sitting next to us, lost! She would have been too kind to give him a hard time about that. We enjoyed Joan's company, and I think her feelings were mutual, as she always sought us out at family gatherings which we attended together. And, they took time out of their schedule to visit us here in the canyon. We will miss Joan and it will be hard not to say "Jerry and Joan". God bless you guys.
