Anniversary

Today was the 8th month anniversary since David was killed.  8 months of waiting for David to be brought home to me and our families.   This month is one of the hardest for me since May 30th marks 8 months since David was killed but June 1st marks what was suppose to be our 9th anniversary.  For those of you who are married you understand that the day you got married is a day where you celebrate the day that you and your spouse became one and the love you share.  It was a day that I looked forward to every year since David always made it special for us/me.  We would always get each other gifts that marks that year, like the 9th year is pottery.  The last few years we would make sure to go away for either the weekend or on vacation but instead this year I am mourning my husbands death and that David and I will not be celebrating our 9th anniversary.  But that has been taken/stolen from me so instead I will be continuing my fight for my husband to be brought home and to fight for justice, but since I am in this situation I couldn’t imagine doing anything different for my love. I will fight for him with all that I have and for as long as it takes…

Gov. Hickenlooper

On May 20, 2011 I was able to meet with Gov. Hickenlooper and I just wanted to take a moment and express my appreciation to him for taking the time to meet with me.  And most of all for the Gov. Hickenlooper putting a letter together to send to the Department of State and Department of Justice on my behalf.  I am so touched by the support that I have received from Colorado.  I also want to thank Congressmen Cory Gardner, Sen. Mark Udall and Sen Michael Bennett for signing the letter along with Gov. Hickenlooper.

Washington DC Trip

May 9-15th I was in Washington DC meeting with an organization called Judicial Watch (if you haven’t heard of them please take the time to research who they are and what they do) who has taken on our case of trying to figure out why our government has not done more to help me in finding my husband and the people who murdered him.  Judicial Watch organized meetings with several congressmen (Ted Poe, Michael McCaul, Steve King, Dana Rohrabacher, Brian Bilbray and Cory Gardner) to sit down with me, so I could share with them my story and frustrations.  I don’t have the words to tell these 6 congressmen how much I appreciate their commitment in helping us bring David home and seeking justice.  Bring David home is our main goal and bring the people responsible in murdering my husband is our second goal.  I feel the week in Washington D.C. was very successful and productive and well worth the time I got to spend with the congressmen and the staff of Judicial Watch.

Today, I can’t tell you how blessed I was with a strangers presence.  She came up to me while I was looking for a mothers day card and just simply said Hello, you don’t know me but I just want you to know that your doing a good thing and just gave me some words of encouragement.  Her name is Linda and I believe God knew I was needing some encouragement since I had a ruff weekend.  For those of you who have lost a loved one understands that every month anniversary that comes up is really hard.  This last Saturday was 7 months and I can’t believe it has been that long, it just doesn’t seem possible!  It is hard to believe it has been 7 months since I saw David, since I heard his voice, laughter and since I kissed him.  7 months since the man that I love was murdered, (how could it be possible)…… I miss him so much, he was my life!

This month is going to be even harder on the anniversary since May 30th marks the 8th month since David was killed and June 1st marks what should of been our 9th anniversary.  Every anniversary we go away on vacation and celebrate our love for each other and the day we joined together as one.  I encourage anyone who is married to please take the time, and go away and spend your anniversary together, just the two of you away from home, even if it’s just getting a hotel together for a night.  Celebrate each other, why you fell in love, and the love you share because you just don’t know how many more you will get.  I am so thankful that David and I made sure that we took time away from life and just spent it together…. Those memories and the time we spent together I will cherish for the rest of my life…

With all my heart and soul, I love you babe!
