I love you, my Nadia. You're journey here, your love that you radiated from your kind heart, and your joyful soul touched my heart and of everyone you came across. I am happy that the life you lived on earth was filled with love from your parents. They made you smile and happy, and they love you very much. May you continue resting in peace and happiness. <3 Tia Kristenread more...

We lit a candle at 7:00 last night in Minneapolis to honor the memory of our 31 year old son, Paul, who died in a drowning accident this past October. His sister lit candles in Thermopolis, Wyoming in remembrance of her brother and best friend. We laughed when she commented, "If he weren't my brother, I would have wanted to marry him!"

Paul was a wonderful musician who played the guitar and sang. His "day job" was supervising financial planners at Ameriprise Financial. He made many friends at work and was a popular and respected manager. Paul was a fun-loving, adventurous soul who put people first, especially his family and the special woman in his life, Trina.

This Thursday, my husband, Rich, and I will present the Paul Myklebust Leadership Award to a compassionate and caring employee at Ameriprise. We are proud that this will be an annual award at the company. There is also a scholarship in his name at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa that will provide financial assistance to a deserving grantee every year for perpetuity.

Somehow, we will figure out a way to embrace life without our beloved son. The grief is still very raw and we find ourselves catching our breath several times a day when we realize the reality of the reluctant path that we walk. Paul's best advice to all of us was, "Listen to other people with the goal of understanding and never quit playing music."

To my Beloved Daughter Laura,

I miss you more each day. I wondered how this could be and wondered why time didn't heal all wounds like we are told. Then it occurred to me that love deepens over time. It deepens and grows. Since we grieve because we love, our grief deepens too. The hole you left in my heart will never be filled. And yet, I know that you are cared-for and well. I feel your spirit around me much of the time. I see the signs I believe are left by you to help me wait.

You are in every breath I take. I will live out my days in the best way I can, always attuned to the beauty that you recognized wherever you went. In your 20 years on earth, you lived more than many people do in a long lifetime. You are my role model on how to appreciate beauty, art and life. I will do it for you, for your sister, for my family, friends, pets and for myself. It is what you would want.

I love you, Beautiful Girl, more each day. I hope I will see you again in the afterlife. Until then, I will look for you in all the wonders of nature. My heart is broken, but still filled with your love.

Love Forever and after,

Mom
