In Memory

by Stephanie Suire on October 20, 2014

My husband’s grandfather passed away this weekend.  He had been in a veterans home for several years receiving full-time care and his health started declining a few weeks ago, so it was not unexpected. However when I got home from work on Friday, my husband told me hospice was called in and his grandfather would most likely pass way in the next 24-48 hours.  They next day we packed up and drove to Louisiana, so my husband and father-in-law could say goodbye one last time.

I am sharing this with you because I am currently sitting in a coffee shop in Lafayette, catching up on urgent needs at work so I can spend tomorrow at the funeral home with the Suire family. Celebrating the life of the man  who served in the Army for 20 years, who started this family that accepted me as part of their own over 10 years ago. When I first met Mr. Suire, he smiled at me and said the dimple in my chin matched his then he told Trey that I was pretty. I will always remember the sparkle in his eyes and I regret that I did not get to spend much time with before his memory started to fail.

Yesterday morning he passed away peacefully.

Although I had some posts scheduled for this week, I am taking a break from blogging and plan to spend a few days with the Suire family before I head back to Dallas. Tonight we will gather at the camp to do what the Suire family does best; cook, eat, visit and play cards.  Throw in some laughter as they reminisce and share their memories, and I expect they will also shed some tears.

I may not have many of my own stories, but I will sit and listen to theirs and look at family pictures. I will give out hugs and offer words of comfort because when I met the Suires, I lived a thousand miles away from my own family and they accepted me into theirs.  I am proud to be part of the Suire family that started with this man and his wonderful wife Jane.

You both are loved, missed and celebrated today.  Rest in Peace, Clemile and Jane Suire.

Life is Hard. Run Harder.

October 2, 2014

Life is Hard. Run Harder. I saw that on a t-shirt at a race over the summer and I thought it pretty much summed up my current season of life.  My current season of life is hard. It is busy, I’m traveling for work, spending something like 50+ hours a week in front of the computer, skipping workouts, […]
