The sun is shining...

God let it rain with our tears for the last 3 days. If you know Colorado, you know that this is rare. The sun is out today and with it I feel hope. Thank you all so much for your continued messages and feelings about all of us. I feel it and it is helping me very much, even though it is causing the tears to flow like the rain we had.
I was going to tally up the messages of love and hope that I have received on FaceBook, but there are too many. I feel like over the last 2 years and especially the last day and a half that I have experienced more love than just about anyone on the planet and there are no words that can express my gratitude for that.


  1. Sedg,
    Just know that all of the outpouring is simply payback for the smiles, laughs, compliments, and friendship you and Heidi gave all of us.

    You're blessed because you've blessed all of us. And while we grieve too, we're so honored to have known Heidi and watch you grow as you've shown unconditional and unwavering love and care for her over the years.

    I look forward to sharing a hug, some tears, and hopefully a few laughs remembering and celebrating the impact both of you have had in our lives.

    Your friend,


  2. Bill,
    I'm so sorry to hear about Heidi. I wish I could be with you and your family. This is a beautiful tribute to Heidi and her strength she showed as she fought through the horrible pain. Bless you and your family.
    I remember how loving you were when you came back for dad's funeral and hope that you feel my love and prayers for you even though I won't be able to make it out from Utah. Mom will have an extra hug from me!
    Love you!

  3. Dear Bill and Girls,

    Our hearts ache with bitter sweetness knowing of your tremendous loss here on this earth, yet also knowing the amazing fullness of life Heidi now has with our Lord Jesus Christ.

    In Psalms 56:8, David writes about God placing his tears in His bottle. What a beautiful picture...God lovingly catching each tear and placing it in His bottle...not one falling to the ground unnoticed!

    Our prayer for you...Ephesians 3:16-19...that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height, to KNOW the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

    Our love and prayers,
    Kirk and Pam Randall (Zach's parents)

  4. Heidi was an inspiration to us all and you both have taught and shown us what "love" really is. May you and your girls find comfort in knowing that Heidi is looking down on you with pride not only today but forever... with love, Megan, David, Lauren, Steven & Hannah

  5. I love you Daddy,
