I appreciate that there is a hospital bracelet in your picture. First of all, it's not that noticable, especially since your wedding band is such a focal point. But, I think that this is a lovely picture that sums what a marriage is. "To have and to hold, in sickness and in health..." You honored your husband beautifly and that this is your last photo together is very poingant. You have tremendous strength; I don't know if I could do the same. God bless you and your children!

Hi Julie,
I am a quiet follower of your blog and have cried many tears with you! As I look at your last picture it brings back memories of when my dad passed away 3 years ago. The night he died my mom, 2 sisters and I took the very same picture that you did! I love it and when I see his big hand beside ours it reminds me of his love and guidance that he gave us growing up! I know that you will also treasure Your picture .. maybe for different reasons, but it will always be special!
You and your family are in our prayers! I'm glad that you have your faith to help you, it really does make things easier to bear!


Julie, it's absolutely beautiful! I think it would look fantastic enlarged and hanging on your wall! You are a very strong woman, Julie, and I admire you a lot.

What a beautiful and stunning photo! You have to hang it with your others, it would be a shame not to frame it. Never would have noticed the bracelet, thought it was his sleeve. Have a peppermint mocha for me!


Lovely photo and memory for you to cherish. And...only you would know that was a hospital bracelet--looked like a shirt cuff to me. But that will remind you of that special moment (and your love for each other) forever.
Love and prayers,
Diane (from Singapore)

Such memories, Julie. I remember the last time Jeff and I had a day together. I had gone home and grabbed the boys and our Yorkie. He smiled so sweetly when he saw all of us. Sadly it was the last time we all spoke as a family. You remain in my prayers and just know better days are coming.

I admire the way you are handling your loss, and I have learned a lot from you.

You and the kids continue to be in my thoughts.


Simply amazing Julie ... this brought me to tears.

Barbara Peck

it is a beautiful picture. What a treasure to have of a special time. Sending warm wishes from the south.


Your picture is wonderful! I got chills reading your comments! I also agree that the enlarged photo will be appreciated through the coming years. You have all been in my thoughts and you show remarkable strength...don't know that I could do the same.


Beautiful picture!


Absolutely FABULOUS picture!! What a wonderful idea you had to take it. I didn't even notice the bracelet until you mentioned it. Could be the cuff of a sleeve. Think it would be wonderful blown up and framed.

Believe it or not we may even get some snow out here on the west coast in the next few days - needless to say the kids are excited :) Not much from what they are predicting and it could all turn to rain before we even get there, but something that is a novelty out here anyway :) Enjoy some of that peppermint mocha for me!

Heidi Gore

What a beautiful picture for you to remember the day you gave Russ' hand to God's.


Julie - This is gorgeous. I am normally just a stalker here but can I just tell you how truely amazing and inspirational you are. I lost someone I loved once...coming up on 12 years ago now and I got through it and I handled it and was strong for the kids but I am really not so sure I was so graceful about the whole thing. I am in awe of you and your strength. You are doing so many special things for you and your boys. I know you have your moments but I just wanted to let you know that I am lifting you up in prayer. God Bless. Amy

Colleen Gurgul

Love the picture Julie. Will look great enlarged and a great treasure. Enjoy your cozy time, definitely the weather for it. Glad I didn't have to go out today.
