Oh Stumpy...I am sorry to hear this.

From our emails it was clear that you loved her very much.

May the Lord welcome her into Heaven with open arms.

You take care.

I cried again, as I read through all the comments.
You are all wonderful.
It's been two weeks now & my heart is absolutely broken.
I'm alone now and open to canoe with others, but mind you, I'm a stubborn old jerk.
But I'm open to the idea...... canvas & Aluminum ;)
special thanks to Magic Paddler & Howard Sprague, & (nctry ?) or who ever bought the flowers ?

Again.... thank you all.... you all made me cry.... and that's good
LOVE

It was tumblehome, Stumpy. ( HERE ) He initiated sending flowers and some others contributed. I missed out on it as I didn't see the post in a timely manner.
Wish I lived closer to the BWCA. I'd paddle with ya. You may be stubborn and set in your ways but you are not a jerk. Not according to what I've read through the years on this forum. I also may have detected a veiled sense of humor, too. :)

Hope fortune sends you many paddling partners in years that lay ahead. God keep you blessed.

Stumpy,
May she RIP and condolences sent to you. Her memory will always be able to bring tears to your eyes - But - the memories will lead to smiles as it validates what you both had for each other. It was unique and special and that will help sustain you to smile again when she visits you in your thoughts.
