Hi Kristen, Though out the year I have thought of you and the boys and your family. I have Matthew and Mark's duet saved on my computer as one of my favorites. It gives me great pride in knowing a precious family. I' am from North Carolina. I got to talk to Mark one time  on the phone and he inspired me with the love and strength you all have. I hope all of the family is doing well and just know I have not forgotten you all. I guess Matthew is probably going to college. Tell the boys that  they will always treasure the things you and Mark instilled in them. To me that is PRICELESS. You are woman of strong faith, God bless you always jjgoodwin24@windstream.net

LTC Mark Weber, a big Happy second Birthday to you in heaven. Your life was way too short on this earth. You were so amazing. I am so glad I got to know you, if only for a short time. I still watch your videos often, Osseo Senior High speech and Easter Lutheran Church being my favorites. The hundreds of times I have watched you and Matt singing ‘Tell My Father”, I still tear up as if it were the first time I saw it. You two were just awesome and the pride in your face after the song shows such a true love of father of son.

There is a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson that makes me think of you that reads: “It is not length of life, but depth of life.” The depth of your life remains with us and you remain, “Forever a part of our lives”.

On your special day my thoughts and prayers are with you, Kristen, Matt, Josh and Noah.

As the anniversary of Mark's death approaches I wanted you and your family to know that I still think of Mark and you very often.  Even though life goes on it must be very difficult to try to fill that large void that Mark has left in your lives.  I hope that by your continued journaling you are able to find peace and that your loss will be easier as time goes on.

Mrs. Weber - I work for USAA which is how I recently heard about Mark's book. While I haven't finished it yet, I want to send you and your boys a "virtual" hug.  What an amazing man Mark was and it is so obvious how very much he loved you all.  Thank you for your courage, and his, to share this story with us.  May you all grow stronger everyday and never forget you always have a very special angel keeping watch over you.  God Bless.

At the Twins home opener yesterday, they organized a Stand Up To Cancer event to raise some awareness and some funds. As you entered, they gave everyone a page-size sign and invited them to write in the name of someone affected by cancer. In the top of the 3rd, everyone stood and held up their sign for a stadium-wide photo.

I posted a copy of my sign here, and I also sent it out to 100,000 or so folks via Twitter tweets and re-tweets. It inspired a lot of feedback, all of it positive.

Mark very DEFINITELY touched a lot of lives.

Kristin,
In the last few weeks I've read Tell My Sons and watched a number of YouTube videos especially the singing of Tell my Father. It was that which lead me to your family as I heard the song released by Sol3Mio in New Zealand and wondered where it came from.
I can't say the journey you and your boys are on will be easy without Mark but he has left a wonderful legacy. I lost my wife in 2007 to cancer when she was 39 and my son was 7. Being a widower at 38 as well as suddenly becoming a solo dad was a horrible experience. It did bring out the best in so many people many of whom I hardly knew. All I can say is the pain does recede while the memories stay on. Its been 6.5 years for us now . I'm married another wonderful woman (I must have good luck because it isn't good looks) who does a great job of looking after her 3 boys (including the dog).
I plan to get my son to read the book as I think that in there Mark does a wonderful job of talking to his boys that will work on anyone. If you and/or your boys ever find your way from Minnesota to New Zealand feel free to bunk down in Auckland.

Chris,  I am a bit late reading your entry but so thankful for it.  So happy you have decided to live...one painful, not so painful, completely unbearable, tolerable day at a time.  The new normal is taking shape and you are are taking it like men....just as Mark would have wanted.  Congrats on the new job, all the birthdays..and 18 year old and  13 year olds sounds like punishment!  LOL.  One who thinks he is a man and two who are most certainly hormonal...and yes, constantly hungry if memory serves me well.  I think of you guys often and keep the offer open to take you on tour of DC if you are here.  Hang in there.  Mark's DC Groupie Gloria

We haven't met but I have been following your posts. You are one strong courageous person. I know there are no words I can share that will take your pain away,but my prayer for you and your children is that the happy memories out weight the tough ones. Prayers coming your way from ND. (And hopefully warmer days SOON)

Kristin,
I feel your pain and understand what you and the boys are going through. It's hard to believe that Suki has been gone for almost 3 1/2 years. It will get easier, the first year is always the worst. I still remember how you and Mark and some of the other families on our street helped out when Suki passed away. To this day I still make the Chicken Chili recipe that you gave me. God bless you and the boys.

Dear Kristin,
I think of you often and ask about you and the kids.  Lost is always hard.  It's as if your on a roller coaster. Bad times, happy times, change at every corner.  Feeling that void at your side until that hole heals.  It does heal, but with a scar.  Time is the only thing that will help, it's different for everyone.
About your cat.  My cat's did the same thing to my tree.  I had to tie it to the ceiling and not put favorite decorations on it.  I bought some unbreakable decorations and place them on the bottom.  It work for me.
Love to you and your family.  Pat
