Not so Happy 20th

Hi All,

Well it was 20 years ago today that Katie and I walked down the isle together.  I was really thinking at the time that our future together would be quite a bit different, not all wishes work out.  We were both quite a bit younger and I was quite a bit lighter....


Here is another with the folks in the photo.


I guess I don't really have much else to say, other than I wish I could give my wife a hug and kiss and say Happy 20th!!!

What a beautiful bride Katie was. I know these are bittersweet memories for you, Kevin. My prayers are with you. I still think of Katie frequently and wonder how you are doing. Thanks for sharing. I know that wasn't easy to do.
In Christ,
Kathy

Today could not have been easy. I still think of Katie so often. Thinking of you today, and praying God eases the pain.

What a rough day! Giant hugs to you, Kevin! I wish you could give your wife a hug and a kiss today too. And everyday.

I am soooo sad for you. Makes me cry to think of what could have been. But, God is in charge and has a better plan for each one of us. One day you will have a joyous reunion together. How are the boys doing? I know they are getting just too big! Take care and prayers to you and the boys. Hugs, Cheryl

Thank you so much for taking the time to share these beautiful photos. I think of you and your sons. Big hugs to all of you.

I still think about her and you and the boys. I hope your memories and love will get you all through this day. Hugs!

Blessings to you. My husband and I celebrated our 33rd earlier this month and I can't imagine how difficult it is for you to be without her. A dear friend lost his wife this month bringing home to me how very blessed I am to still have my husband here with me. You are not forgotten, we all remember Katie and you and the boys - we all know you through Katie's work and how much she shared with us here. We pray for strength for you, it isn't much, I know, but it's the best we can do.

You have really been on my mind lately. So happy that you updated us. I know that Katie will always be alive in that special place in your heart. A week ago we buried a very good friend and her husband is left alone to figure out the rest of his life. It is so hard to watch and feel so helpless. God bless you and the boys. May you find peace in the fact that she is resting in God's hands and will await seeing you again.

KarenB said...

Kevin, Thank-You so much for sharing this with us. I'm glad to hear that you and the boys are doing so well.

Celebrate today by doing something with the boys that Katie would have enjoyed. She is in your heart and will be there with you.

Anita said...

Kevin, I just want you to know how much I think this "stinks." Even as a Christian, at times, I want to scream at God, "Really God? Really? This is the plan you have for my life?" Loss is so excruciating and unfair! But in spite of it all I've come to accept that I'll never know the whys and acceptance is the answer and God loves us. Sometimes that's all we have to get through the crap of life. I hope I have not been too forward but I share your pain. You and the boys are in my thoughts and prayers today. Anita D.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful wedding pictures and your thoughts with us today. I hope it comforts you in honoring so beautifully Katie and the loving relationship you two shared. I understand your sadness today, I will be celebrating my 53rd wedding anniversary alone for the first time since I lost my husband to cancer in March. Your strength to go on and your love and devotion to your boys is an inspiration to all of us. God Bless you and the boys. Elaine from New Jersey

I think of you two often. She was such a beautiful bride. I'm sorry today is so difficult for you. Lots of love being sent your way.

Bonnie said...

You have been in my thoughts lately. When you can't hug with your arms, hug with your heart. Katie will be with you and the boys as long as her memory is alive and safe.

Thank you for sharing your special day, Kevin. I think of you and the boys and Katie often, in spite of the fact I've never met any of you. Her story of strength and courage just grabbed my heart and hasn't let go. I hope you can feel the love and prayers being sent your way today and every day. Bless you all.

I can't even imagine how you feel, Kevin! Bless your heart for sharing such lovely yet painful memories with all of us. I think about Katie often and hope you and the boys are blessed beyond measure with beautiful memories - past, present and future. I know Katie is sending her strength, love and happiness to you to go on in spite of all of the sadness. Take care and thank you for sharing!

I am so very sorry -- still -- for your loss. And a huge loss it is. Hugs to all of you. I think of you often and wonder how you are doing. What happened isn't fair and I have no words of wisdom other than I wish you the best as you deserve it.

Hello!

I was so happy to see this post as I think of you and the boys so often and hope that you are well and happy. They must be getting so big now. Katie will always be missed - she was a beautiful person, both inside and out. How lovely she was on your wedding day. Wishing you and your children everything good.

Hugs,

Barbara Diane
