Memorial Bench Installed

This bench was installed over the weekend in Pinebrook at the top of Jekyll and Hyde trail. A group of Emily's friends and family will gather at the bench next Sunday, September 26th at 11AM. I plan to start from our house at 10AM to give me extra time hiking with the boys. I hope to see you there.

Special thanks to Carl Skylling who reconditioned the chair and the install crew (Ben, Tait, and Brian) who got it up there.

Emily's Birthday

Last night on top of 9990' looking at Emily's flag. Hopefully it will still be there this winter when you hike up and ski the crest. You will have a chance to say hi too.

On August 13th the boys and I did nothing for Emily's birthday. In fact, they did not realize it was on that day. Liam did talk about her more that day which I thought was unusual. However, we did have a visitor.
That day a black butterfly got into the house and was flying around the living room. We have a lot of butterflies in the yard but one has never been in the house. The boy liked seeing it fly around and would acknowledge its presents now and then during the day to Allie or me.
When I was going to bed I notice it had made its way up to my bedroom and I went to sleep.
The boys came up early the next morning to wake me up and Liam said the butterfly is dead. In fact, it had died that night and was lying on the floor at the door to my room.

Appreciate everyday and the true friends you have in it.

Love, Pete, Mason, and Liam

Mason lost his first tooth last Friday!!!!!

Mason lost a tooth and is comfortable swimming in the deep end of the pool. More milestones that Emily would have celebrated hardily. Sadly she it not here and the three of us miss her so much. The three of us grieve everyday and sometime cannot make sense of our loss.
Last week was really, really hard because I needed my support system of 19 years so much. I wept a lot and did the best I knew how. Thank you Melissa, Sarah, and Allie.

xo, Pete, Mason, & Liam

Mason gives his Mama her card and the boys each plant a tree.

Liam's plants a blue spruce out back.
Mason does too.
Stop at Smith's for more balloons and snacks.
Mason holds up the card he made for Emily.
Two balloons wasn't enough for the big card.
Up, up, and away.
Happy Mother's Day!!!!

Thanks Again

Thanks again for all the calls, dinners, love, and support you all have shown. Mason, Liam and I really appreciate it and I apologize for not returning your calls.

Mason has matured a lot in the past three weeks and I am very proud of him. Liam is still the lovable goofball who the girls gush over. And I am keeping very busy with assorted stuff, taking one day as it comes.

We were sad yesterday when Kayla went home for the summer to Twin Fall, ID but we are happy that she will be back in August when school starts again. Allie will be home next week and the boys are excited for another fun summer with her.

Finally, I want to say a very big thank you to the boy’s schools, The Peek Program and Park City Academy. I am grateful to all the faculty and administrators who been incredibly supportive to the boys in the past three weeks. My job as a parent has been made a little easier because of all of them.

The Foehl Children Fund

Below is an email sent by a friend of ours who set up a fund for Mason and Liam. The boys and I appreciate all the love and support that our community has shown us. In particular, thank you to the Dellenbach's for taking the boys yesterday afternoon when I could hardly help my self because of the stomach flu. Pete

Hello Friends of Emily:

We wanted to reach out to those that have a connection to our sweet Emily Roosevelt-a wonderful and courageous woman and a loyal friend. First, thank you to the many families that are going to contribute with meals for the next few months. That will be a huge help to their family as they begin to adjust to life without Em. Since her beautiful memorial service this past Saturday, we also thought it important to continue to support to Pete, Mason and Liam in the upcoming weeks and months. With this in mind, a group of Em’s close friends have set up the Foehl Children Fund for Mason and Liam. This is a simple account that Pete can access for new and necessary expenses like extra childcare, housekeeping and maybe even a weekend away with the boys for some much-needed peace. Emily was an extraordinary mother, devoted to her family and we know she would want Pete and the boys taken care of in the best possible way. By contributing to this fund, you will help alleviate some of the expenses associated with Emily's passing, and the extra stress that they will bring to Pete and the boys. You are welcome to contribute to the Foehl Children Fund through any Wells Fargo Bank branch. All you need to do is give the teller the name of the fund and she will make the deposit into this account. Or if you would like to send a check payable to the Foehl Children Fund, please send to the address below.

As a community, it is important to show our love and support to such a wonderful family. Emily, Pete, Mason and Liam have been like family to many of us who do not have family local. Without Emily’s sparkling blue eyes, lovely smile, contagious laugh and ever-positive attitude, we all will forever have a void. This is a great way to honor the most important thing in her life - her boys and Pete.

Thank you in advance for your contribution.
Please email me if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
Laura and John Climaco
