Something about the old saying "Time heals all wounds". I know it really doesnt heal them completely but as time goes by the pain subsides. Keep remembering Chris with a smile on your face and remember all the good times you spent with him. That is the best thing we can do for our loved ones that leave us behind.


This is all just amazing.. the number of people that came to pay respects, speeches from friends, stories about Chris, and I'm sure all his friends and family appreciated that. You will never 'get over' his passing, but it sounds like you are starting to move on in your own ways. I hope Greg keeps asking Chris 'now what' cause one day he'll get a thought after he asks, and it will be the answer Chris would have given. In a few years you'll be talking about him wistfully, and it won't be so raw. No need to 'move on' on your blog from talking about him, it's still an ongoing process for you. Best wishes to you both.

Wow! Chris sounds like he was a wonderful man. I'm happy to hear that both of you are starting to heal.

Just to let you know that volunteer firemen are family to each other. My husband has been a volunteer fireman for over 30 years. In that time we have had to attend several funerals. It is very hard. One thing that they do here in Michigan is that they place the coffin on a firetruck and the firetruck leads the way to the cemetary. Yes lots of firemen attend. It is a very moving ceremony. How about making a scrapbook about Chris for his family. It does help heal but it is also a time to let yourself cry over your loss. My prayers are with you and your family over your loss.
