So sorry to hear of your loss. A few others on this board, along with myself, has had some hard good byes to say as well. Healing comes through the good memories made, but also in the ones shared with fellow creekers. Our prayers will go out for you, his wife, his children, and family during this time of loss. You may even find a deeper connection now with the creek...I know I did.

That is tough,  sorry for your loss.  I too have lost people who were close to me who had a love of the Sierras.  Hopefully your future trips to the canyon will give you a bit of peace knowing that your loved one in a way will always be there with you..
Once I arrive at Tom's Place...well,  you know...nothing else matters...

My family is going to Disneyland for three day with my brother in-laws wife and kids. He told the kids that when he was felling better he would take them. A family in a church where he was a youth pastor a few years ago bought the family season tickets  :clap:

I never met him, but I would venture to believe this put a smile on his face. It also sounds from his past affiliations that he is definitely in a good place! You have stepped up to a very important place in his family's needs. I am sure you will also be blessed through this. Hopefully someday we can all gather around a fire and tell happy stories of those gone on before us.

Disneyland was great! the kids had a great time and my feet are sore from all that walking. We stayed at the Grand California Hotel, I love this hotel. There was ten of us on this trip and no major issues other than feeling like a cat wrangler most of the time. I'm now planning a spring time fishing trip to french camp with the boy's.

Looks like the healing process has started and I'm sure your up coming trip will let the boys know that the things they did with their father will still be part of their lives.

Happy :fishing3:

Thank you.
Yes the healing has begun and will be a very long road for some. we as a family have sighed up for and have started a grief share group.
The boys are very excited to go camping up at the creek, I'm trying to set up a trip a week or two after the opener.

Thank you all!

As a counselor this made me very excited for all of you. You ARE on the right path. Many never consider this support system available. Best wishes as you all venture through, what will be, a positive journey together.

Well since we have season passes, we picked up my brother in-laws youngest boy after school and went to Disneyland. It's nice to go and just stroll around not being in a hurry and trying to get on every ride before closing. There we were standing in line for soring over California, when my nephew started eating his tube of flavored sugar, it was not my idea on getting that stuff! well he though he could eat the whole thing at once, bad idea. He started choking and is lips were turning blue, luckily that was only from the blue sugar. Got him to raise his hands above his head and to breath through his nose, that helped till we could get him a sip of his water. he's fine, but it's always an adventure with my nephews!
