The Last Post

"Now pardon me if I appear
To see beyond the now and here
To try and save myself
I could lose myself,
I could curse like hell
But I've lost the will to even try
If you ever doubt listen to the sound
No LiesThis is my last Goodbye"
KWS

"The Soul would have no Rainbow if the Eyes had no Tears"

Friendship is a plant of slow growth and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.
George Washington


I guess I really don't know where to start. But I'll give it a try. I don't want anyone to forget why this blog was originally started. It was a way to communicate with all of you on the condition and progress of Moriah after the accident. Unfortunately the progress never turned into what we had hoped and prayed for. I don't close this down lightly but I just feel it's the best thing to do. I would like to dedicate this post not only to Moriah and Mary, but to all of you that hung in there with me the past few years. To my friends and family I thank you. To all of you that have prayed for us, May God Bless You. Over the past few years the thought of Goodbye has been very difficult for me. I've cried many tears while saying goodbye because the reality is it might be the last one. As many of you know music has been one of my escapes throughout all of this and I hope that you have enjoyed the lyrics that I have shared with you. I guess music has been a form of prayer and thought for me. It has been a form of grief but also a form of celebration. Many times I've listened to a song that brings some tears and I think, why do I listen to this and why do I do this to myself. I guess that's why they invented the blues, so that triumph and celebration would have something to be compared to. I also had this thought after looking through lots and lots of pictures how much time I've spent fishing. So I thought I'd share some fishing pictures with you. It seems to me that it's not about fishing, but about spending time with our friends and family. To me there aren't many things better than being on or near water. One of Mary's requirements for a vacation or retirement place was water. I am forever grateful for that. It also gives us a connection to the outdoors and nature and the beauty of this world. Oh well sorry to pontificate. I started putting these pics together and had to minimize it to an acceptable level. As you know I usually have very little to say so here's the pics.

I'm living proof
This Road is long and hard
If I could find a way
I'd take your place, but you just
Got to Live ON!!
LIVE ON!!!!"

Well that's it for now. I'll leave this open for awhile for comments etc.

It is not I
It is you
It is you that I receive my motivation from
It is you that I receive my strength from
It is you that inspires me
It is my faith that guides me
It was easier when I knew nothing
For what a fool I once was
And even though I have learned so much
It is much harder now that I have lost so much
But it is you
Not me
Without you
I would be lost and weak
So may Gods grace
Continue to give you
The strength
That you
So unselfishly
Give to me
Where would I be without all of you??
Hope to see you down the road
God Bless
Keep prayin LOUD or soft.
Peace
Dale

Hi, Dale.

I want to thank you for writing this blog for so long. In the beginning it was so helpful to keep up with Moriah's condition and hear what the doctors were saying. As time went by, it was nice to know that you were getting by. I wish more than anything that you no longer needed to write the blog because we could talk to Moriah and find out for ourselves. Unfortunately, that never came to be. A day doesn't go by that I don't think about Moriah or sometimes catch myself thinking, "Moriah would love to be here right now." Thank you so much for letting JJ, Katherine, Amber, and I have a few things of hers. When I put on that beautiful green scarf she made I can't help but be comforted that she will always be with me.

Take care, enjoy the road, and know that we are all praying LOUD or soft.

Love,
Maureen

Ionly met Mo after the accident-I was a nurse caring for her.Though we spoke often,you wouldn't remember me.I just learned Mo passed.I've thought of her often.I would talk to her&at times she almost seemed to be listening to me.I remember when I told her how beautiful her Mom was,and when I turned she was crying.I'd look into her eyes&think, please stop twitching&focus.Break free.I so hoped that she could defeat all odds&awaken.I do believe she was aware of us around her.Even though she could not answer she knew.So beautiful&young-I am glad she is now@rest.You&Danielle were very strong.I wonder if I'd have your strength.God Bless your family.God Bless Moriah.She will remain in my heart always&forever.
