    I was already thinking about and praying for you all when I saw this update come in on Caring Bridge....thank you for sending it.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you as we remember Joe's Graduation day.  I know you are right...he is having a great time in heaven.  :)

    We miss him, too.

    My heart skipped a beat when Joe's CaringBridge email came.  I am so glad you wrote today.  I miss him.  I've thought about all of you so much this past 1 1/2 years.  Especially, when October started, it made me think of Joe.

    You are such a treasure and blessing to those of us who have the privilege to cross your path.  Thank you for the honesty and candor as you walk this journey.
    Love you always,

    We will forever treasure the friendship we had with Joe & you...That smile of Joe Maxwells' lingers in our memory and wont be forgotten...Thank you, Kathleen, for being you...Thanks to your whole family for who they are...You embody the goodness of God and cetainly His grace...

    May the Lord continue to wash over each of you with healing and wholeness and expectation of the future. Our prayers wont stop...

    It has been a blessing to follow you on this journey.  You have taught me and showed me so much about God.  Your faith and hope and trust and love is beautiful.  I know God has something special for you.

    I love you,

    Dang, that is kind of scary. Not so much the man, but the asking for the phone number. That brings up all kinds of things you might have to face in the future! Don't think about it now, Kathleen. Ask Mallory what to say. Look forward to seeing you soon.

    So many new experiences, Kathleen!  Some good, some painful...don't forget that Joe is in your heart...just take what you need from each experience.  Smile sweetly to the guy who wanted your phone number...shudder a bit that he was insensitive enough to ask, but be flattered that he was attracted and intrigued enough to ask...every day is a new one!  I'm sure he meant well - and who wouldn't be attracted to such an alive, fun person!?

    Still praying for strength and peace for you...and, as always you have more grace than any 10 people I know!  Have a blessed New Year's beginning and may our sweet Lord continue to guide you...be well, sweet friend!

    Glad you are having a good time with your family--so thankful you have them and they have you.

    Our family is doing a ski trip to Red River, NM leaving Christmas Day after spend ing a couple of days with family, Cousins, 37 of us  and Rick's mom in Winters, TX.  We are blessed also and I praise God for His bountiful goodness to us as a family.

    See you next year.

    Happy 50th Birthday to my 'old' friend!  Wow---we have been wishing each other 'Happy Birthday' since the 4th grade!!  I looked for some red, white, and blue knee socks to give you, but alas, I could not find any.  I know that you are sad about that.  :)

    Have a wonderful day!  I am praying that you will feel His love and mine today....

    Kathleen, what a lesson you teach, as usual!  Your message about not putting God in a box is so important...too often I think we all do that!  Thank you, as always, for sharing and teaching - and for living and loving.  May you continue to be blessed richly by our Lord this Christmas season.
