In “comic” form because that what she liked best, with some of my favorite pics and thoughts over the last couple of days.
I can’t be at the service, but you can believe that I will be wearing a bright RED shirt on the trail tomorrow. Know that I’m wearing it, and know that I’m thinking about you. –A
Oh Mel, I’m so sorry to read this. I’ll find something red to wear – even if I have to steal my partners red socks!
oh, I am so sorry! I will be RED in spirit. I love your tribute, a lovely comic of a life that looks very well lived, even if too brief. My condolences.
I am so very sorry for you, your family and all her friends. It is so hard to say goodbye. Even though I have only met you briefly once and live across the country from you, if you need anything don’t hesitate! I will be wearing red for her.
Beautiful post my friend. Red shirts next we ride.
Thank you everyone!!!!!!!!! It means so much you read through all my words and scrolled through the pics and left a comment.
Nicely done, nicely done…..
Mel, in this post, you brought Bethany to life for those of us who never had the opportunity to meet her. Wishing you and your
family- and especially Redgirl- peace,comfort, and more laughter.
Red will be the color of the day tomorrow and you’ll be in my
Wonderful pictures and words!
From your post it is obvious your sister was a very special person- I’m so sorry.
I am so, so sorry Mel. What a beautiful tribute to your sister. I will be wearing red tomorrow (or today, rather) for her. Thinking of you.
Red shoes on my feet today. Just for her.
I am so sorry, Mel. That’s a lovely tribute. Thinking of you.
Thanks so much for sharing this. Love what you wrote and the comments too. Very sorry for your loss.
Every year when my parents asked what I wanted for Christmas, I would ask for a sister. I never got one, and I will never know what you have lost, and I will never feel your pain, but I know that you have priceless memories that I will never have and I am happy that you have that treasure.
This is a gorgeous tribute; thank you for sharing it with us. Got a red shirt in my bag for riding in after work.
I’m so sorry for you loss. You wrote a lovely tribute.
Melinda, I love this so much! Thank you!
Mel. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Your beautiful post made me cry. Sending warm thoughts your way.
Guys, you should have seen the red at the service. It was amazing. And to have everyone in red made a HUGE difference in the atmosphere. It was just the sort of thing Bethany would have wanted. Absolutley perfect.
I’m so sorry, Mel. You wrote a beautiful tribute and my thoughts are with you and your family.
I was so incredibly shocked and saddened by this news. The red popping up everywhere is so heartwarming. I am glad you have a good support network, and I’m keeping you and your family in my thoughts…
A beautiful tribute. I am so sorry for your loss. Wearing red, and wishing you comfort and many happy memories…
