For some moments in life, there are no words....

I've been gone. First cause I was lazy. Then because I can't think happy thoughts. I want this blog to be full of my lifes shenanigans (hence the clever name). However, our family suffered a tragedy. We lost someone we love very unexpectedly. My heart hurts..for her, for her parents, for her siblings, for all her family and friends.

Angel, Mariee, and Richard at the Luxor buffet in Las Vegas.

I took this picture a couple of years ago on a trip to watch Mariee (middle) play in a tournament in Las Vegas (we missed her game that day...and she laughed at us) We loved watching her play softball. She kicked ass. Seriously. She was an amazing person and I am blessed to have known her.

Here's an article about Mariee.

Mariee you will live forever in our hearts. We will miss you so very much. Until we meet again.....We love you!

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.


  1. My heart goes out to you and her family. I am sorry to hear such a sad story. Sending lots of thoughts, prayers, and hugs your way!

    P.S. MLIA= My Life Is Average.

  2. I'm so sorry you are hurting. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  3. There is no worse tragedy than losing someone before we are ready...and even more so - when they had their whole life ahead of them. There's a master plan for us all and I am sure she's in one of the best places. My deepest sympathies go out to those who's lives she touched. From the way you talk about her, I can tell she was a person filled with the best things. many, many hugs to you and the family.

  4. I'm so sorry all and her family are in my prayers!

  5. How sad, I'm so sorry for your loss Alice.


I LOVE reading your thoughts!! :)
