TODAY AS WE KNOW IS THE 3RD ANNIVERSARY OF YOUR DEATH.  MEMORIES OF THIS HEARTBREAKING WEEK ONLY START THE JOUNREY OF MY LIFE WITHOUT YOU.  I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU; I STILL WEAR YOUR WEDDING RING......A CONSTANT REMINDER OF YOUR WARM SMILE AND OUR SEEMINGLY ENDLESS HELLOS AND GOODBYES.  HOW I WISH I COULD RECREATE THOSE LAST DAYS AND HOURS WITH YOU.  I WOULD HANDLE IT DIFFERENTLY NEVER LEAVING YOUR SIDE.  I WISH I HAD ASKED THE HOSPITAL TO BRING A COT INTO YOUR ROOM....AND CURL INTO YOUR STRONG ARMS AS YOU PASSED BY ME TO THE BEYOND.  I CHOOSE TO BELIEVE YOU KNOW HOW MANY TIMES I HAVE THOUGHT OF YOU AND ALL THE PRIVATE AND JOY FILLED HOURS WE SPENT TOGETHER.  HOW I MISS YOUR FAMILY; THEY TOUCHED ME SO.  THE LOVE I STILL HOLD FROM YOUR SIBLINGS KEEPS ME CENTERED.  AS YOU PROMISED I KEEP A VIGILANT AND GUIDING EYE ON JOEL'S CHILDREN IN NEVADA.  THEY ARE BEING LOVED AND PROTECTED AND HAVE GIVEN NEW MEANING TO THE WORD JOY FROM THEIR GRANDPARENTS.  ALL THE WORLD NEEDS IS LOVE.  THANK YOU FOR GIVING YOURS TO ME.  UNTIL I SEE YOU AGAIN....PATTY

GRAVE MARKER FOR CANDACE AND KURTISS BLUEMEL  / Patty Bluemel (wife)  Read >>
GRAVE MARKER FOR CANDACE AND KURTISS BLUEMEL  / Patty Bluemel (wife)

To the Bluemel Children;

I was so happy to see the beautiful grave marker you placed in memory of your mom, Candy and your dad, Kurt.    I was so touched! I was so happy when I saw it! Your dad and mom would be proud! May it stay in place for many years.

All our hearts are broken because God took Dad to heaven. For the children of Kurt, I am happy for you that you all have your own children to fill your lifes.

An attraction to meeting your dad was an opportunity for me to have a new family, especially young children to love. As you all know I never had any children.  Loving children was actually a pre-requisite from your dad before he would marry me. Your dad would not want us to be estranged. I hear that Sara has really grown.  Oh how I wish I could see everyone like "back in the day".

For the few short years of memories of us all being a family, THANK YOU! Perhaps someday we will all be friends as your dad would have wanted us be. I apologize for my part of what has transpired from the bottom of my heart.  I am working on current photos but I gave the majority of them to the adult children.

It would be so nice to see new pictures on this site.   

Warm regards, GRANDMA PATTY BLUEMEL

Grandbabies / Melea Bates (daughter)
Three months have flown by. You are in my thoughts daily. Little Sara smiles all the now, she is so chubby that when she smiles, her checks take up her whole face. She is a beautiful, wonderful baby.  Lily misses you. She tells everyone she meets that Grandpa died. We tell her you are in heaven, but she interpets that as "Grandpa is in Kevin" You  would smile at it. Adam is just now realizing that you are gone and is struggling with it. We read a book about a wise old hippo dieing and he cried for what seemed like forever. He is better now but he is a softy and understands more than we realize. Spencer talks about the noogies you used to give him. And wishes he would've let you give him more.  
So much hurt happens when a loved one is lost. Grieving is so hard and done differently by everyone. Time heals all. 
Please know that you were so loved, you are missed daily, and I hope you are dancin' and singin' in heaven.
Love Always,  Melea Close

To All Who Read This From Time to Time:

I look at this website now and then.  I never realized how much it would hurt not having Kurt in my life more and more as time goes on.  My life partner is gone; I am alone.  Alone is okay but it is terrible if you have been WITH someone.

When I met Kurt I had been alone for some time.  I chose to welcome him into my life because I knew he would enrich it; make it something I had never been.  He had family, several grown children and lots of grandchildren.  This all seemed like a wonderful asset to my life. 

I have marched through the pages of our life without hiim.  First was the Holidays.  Holidays will never be the same now that I know that on Oct. 1st. I lost my life partner.  Already now we are close to August.  I have seen major and minor holidays, Kurt's birthday, Father's Day and all in between but no Kurt.  Gosh I miss my husband.  To invest so much, to be left with so little.  It all seems so unfair.  Still I am blessed with the knowledge that someone very wonderful and special came into my life.  I know I am alive, I know i can love, and now I know I can hurt.  Someday I wonder if Kurt will be able to tell me about all those visits to the cemetary.  When I go I feel somewhat closer, especially when I saw the gravemarker with both our names on it.  Life will never be the same without my friend and life partner. 

 

6/29/10 - TODAY IS MY HUSBAND'S BIRTHDAY...THE WONDERFUL DAY HE WAS SELECTED TO ENTER THIS WORLD.  HE HAS MADE HIS MARK BEARING SEVERAL CHILDREN.  THEY WILL REMEMBER HIM ALWAYS.  AS HIS WIFE THERE IS NOT A DAY THAT I DON'T THINK ABOUT HIM, OUR LIFE, THE TIMES WE LAUGHED, THE TIMES WE WANTED TO CRY AS WE WALKED THROUGH HIS ILLNESSES.  NEVER DID I EXPECT TO LOSE HIM SO SOON.  DEEP WITHIN MY SOUL AND AT THE TIP OF MY CONSCIOUSNESS KURT IS RIGHT HERE...NEXT TO ME.  SOMEDAY WE WILL MEET AGAIN, SMILE AND CRY.  LOVE, PATTY

the man of my dreams..............-....................-....................  / Patty Bluemel (wife)  Read >>
the man of my dreams..............-....................-....................  / Patty Bluemel (wife)
i fell in love with kurt within the first 10 minutes of our first date.  it was a blind date; something hardly ever heard of anymore.  the fact that he was willing, and so was i, to go on a blind date told me many things about kurt without speaking a word.

the look of anticipation, the smile of appreciation, i remember it all, when our eyes first locked at J B's in Evanston, WY.  

we laughed, in the past, about how we actually started to date.  he had advertised in a single's column on the internet.  i answered it on a dare......................he called me; what a sexy voice he has, i thought!  he said "i would like to meet you".  i froze, scared to death that i would have to meet him.  he was puzzled, i felt foolish.

finally we met; he was a soft and easy going guy; the first thing i noticed is his smile.  it is a little crooked; i came to see that all his family has that same funny little smile.  as we spoke his beautiful blue eyes danced with amusement.  he said i was funny; i thought he was solid, secure, the guy you could take home to mom, MY TYPE, i thought, even though we were strangers.

it is almost 3 years since that meeting, days and pictures in the past that will hold my heart still these lonesome nights.  God has taken you, my love, too, too, soon from me and those that love you.  to say we miss you is not enough ...................... i don't want to think about my life going on without you because YOU ARE my life, my husband and my love.  please save me a seat up in heaven, kurt, you know i go to the cemetary a lot but my happiest day will be the day you give me your baby blues and say "hi silly girl"!  

my heart is broken; oh yes i miss you more than i can say.

love, patty
