I have been away for some time now. So much life has happened right beneath my feet. I look at the clouds and the sky. I look at the stars and the moon. Then I wonder, maybe we are in a neighborhood right next door to heaven. maybe Jamie and Wayne are right there. maybe life is just that magical? It took 15 years to think this, but I still wonder, just maybe?
A sunny Sunday morning and celebration of beautiful spring weather. I saw a bluebird fly and wondered if it was Jamie checking up on me again. Shortly after Jamie passed, I was sitting in my vehicle looking out at Lake Davis with my arm resting on the window ledge thinking only of her. Out of the air a beautiful bluebird landed on the side mirror and looked at me with her sparkling eyes. She settled with a fluff and stayed while I spoke softly to her. Ever since that first profound encounter, I cherish being near bluebirds because I believe Jamie is connected and saying, "Hi dad" in her unique voice. Everyone who knew Jamie can remember her sweet voice and laugh to this very day. Jamie, I miss you so very much. Love always ... so much love.
Here it is Jamie's birthday, it was snowing today just as it was on this day in 1975. Well, first we cried and held each other, feeling devastated that you are gone so long. It is lonely without your smile, your smell, your hugs, your understanding. We still have those things in our hearts. We wear our silver bracelets that Christy gave us, it says I am Always with you. And it is always a comfort to wear them. I went and had my nails painted with dragonflies on the ring finger. The pink nail color is called baby girl. I am so very grateful to of had her for 28 years. I was looking at make-up and remembering how Jamie and I use to look at nail polish and lipstick colors for hours and laugh. I pretended that she is with me, just like in Redondo Beach. Oh how I wish I would of visited Jamie more often. I have such regret that I never visited in L. A. when she lived with Robin. So many things I do and see, have me thinking, oh Jamie would like that or Jamie would really laugh at that. Alexa is funny and would make Jamie laugh. I like how I can ask her to play any song and she knows them all. Your funny MOM. love and giggles and hugs Dori
Thinking of Jamie today. I need one of her special hugs. David is not doing well, I worry so about him. We have tons of snow here. I wish they were both here to help Dad shovel and chop wood. Alice Price thank you for the Christmas message. I hope you are well. Love always, dori
Am sending my wish to Jamie's parents for a meaningful Christmas Season and a Healthy New Year.
I was just talking out loud to you Jamie. I miss you everyday, we all do. You are forever young. Remember when we laughed so hard in the car, the 4 of us going to Lake Tahoe? It was quiet in the car, then David said, what will it be like when the deer come home Momma? You and David both were a comedy act. I miss your funny stories . Lemon jello and Orange jello. I am so happy at this time of year that all your true friends send us cards with photos of the children. It means so much, we giggle and smile. Stay with us always in our hearts and I light candles by you and Wayne and David everyday. This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine. You David and DAD are my whole world. Love and hugs and kisses, and yes I am stretching my NECK.
I miss her more and my heart aches. If I could just have one more day with my precious daughter. Hugs, JAMIE gave the best hugs in the world. Her heart is in my heart.
Jamie, Jamie...I am so very close to you at this time. How I wish we could talk. So much to say. Love you each tick of life. Kisses hugs weejax.
We all still miss you every day Jamie...
I have her photos in frames all around, the candles light, her smiles shine bright. If only, if only. Just one more of her wonderful hugs. I am going to write down a poem I love from Compassionate friends newspaper. She is in the sun, the wind, the rain, she is in the air I breathe. With every breath I take she sings a song, of hope and cheer. There is no more pain and fear, I see her in the clouds above, hear her whisper words of love. We will be together before to long, until then I will listen for her song. This sweet poem was written by Christy Ann Martine
SHE is always in my heart, and I miss her so much!
Hi Jamie. Of course, we are continually missing you as always, but we are also deeply appreciative of all the blessings you still give us. We hear your voice and remember the feeling of your arms around us, and can still see your loving smile. This year, on January 17th, we decided to remember the date as "Bond of Love" day forevermore. Your friends have been very loving and compassionate and true, and have become an important part of our life. It is always wonderful to hear from Robin, Julie, Erika, Jill, or Laura. Likewise to follow their families growing gives us such joy. We know how involved you would be. You are always in our hearts. We love you so! Love will only grow stronger over time. David talks about missing you and we know how he feels. We feel more at peace these days - a peace that surpasses our understanding. And we hold onto our faith: faith that God has created certain qualities in all of us that have never changed - mainly love that is eternal. We know that our Bond of Love is so strong that we simply let our lives go wherever our love leads us, and that if we stay true, love will take us back to you. May the Circle be unbroken bye and bye.
I have been listening to music and watching concerts. This tribute to 30 years of Bob Dylan, has so many songs that stir me. Touch my heart and make me cry. As a family on trips in the car we listened to a lot of BOB. The Nashville skyline, was a favorite. " the girl from the North Country" is Jamie's song. I remember hugging her and smelling her amazing hair, feeling her tender heart...... Some times in the dark of the night, and in the brightness of the day with the flowers and birds in my back yard, my mind and heart is filled with Jamie and David, and I pray and how I wish that their hearts always be joyful, and may the stay forever young. Our David is in a mental hospital and misses Jamie so. My heart aches for him. Another singer I saw on this concert, is Shawn Colvin. I can not remember the song Jamie liked so much. I hate when memories fade and photos fade. God Bless you all and keep you safe. The times they are a changing. Also "Eddie Vedder" sings " Masters of War" and tangled up in Blue. "Eddie Vedder is a favorite of David. He , will be in Yuba city , Willow Glen Care Center until Dec. Love Dori
We miss you and love you. We are coming to visit your grave this weekend
Forever young. I think of the Angels flying you to Heaven. Alice Price I just read the letter again. Thank you to Jamie friends. For sending us such thoughtful cards.God Bless and take good care of yourself
The years go by, but the memories hold ever so dear.
Jamie was such a good part of Wayne's last year - for that I will be forever grateful.
It is that moment in time … again. It is late, or rather, very early in the morning and comes The Authoritative Knock on the door. Suddenly awakened to utter despair that reverberates for as long as life. Friends, previously unmet gather to watch over our Upheaval. To throw the first lifeline of Faith into a Raging Flash Flood in the hope that we could instinctively grasp and hold fast and be pulled to safety against the unimaginable torrent. The effort to cling, bringing full and total exhaustion, leaves one so spent that life going forward seems as improbable as forever swimming against such a force.
Yet, as with any flood, the waters do eventually subside within natural banks. Simply stay alive long enough, surrender, and return to the natural calming downstream flow of life - with the inevitable swirls, bumps, and even the eddies that bring unexpected reversals of direction. Sometimes, without any warning, evidence of The Upheaval is exposed … again. Why? How? Life outside of the natural channel exposes that the aftermath of Great Forces remain. It is so plain to see, even thirteen years later, to the hour.
Yet … floods also purge. If one dares to accept the destruction, then, in all truth, one - eventually - will not forever deny the cleansing renewal that is ultimately apparent in every aftermath. That is the cycle of life. It is upon the exposed and scoured bedrock that we rebuild and go forward through future droughts - and floods encountered during our lives. Seeking as often as we are able: renewed hope, greater appreciation of our relatively short life, a strengthened faith in the sometimes opaque goodness of God, and with ever-increasing capacity to love all manner of beings.
To look up to heaven and feel in my heart that I honestly strive to live in a manner that, everyday of her life, came naturally to my beautiful daughter, Jamie. She is always … pure love.
Happy New Year Jamie ... It's 2017 and you have been away so very long. Missing and loving you always. Dad
