Library update from Jen

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

Hi all,
We have a date for our library dedication for Natalie Rose. It will be on Sunday, May 31st beginning at 10:30am.
Our children at our church have starting taking over the worship part of the service on every 5th Sunday and it just so happens that May 31st is a 5th Sunday. So our worship portion will be conducted by the children’s department and we will then do a dedication presentation of the library. After the service is completed, we will be having cookies in the library.


Pardon the interruption.

I’m breaking in today to catch up on preparation for a couple events which will be happening in early June.
In case you didn’t catch Jen’s comment, I’ll repeat it here:

Thanks for posting the call for a great picture of Nattie. I have saved this photo on my computer and sent it in to get processed. It didn’t turn out too bad. If anyone has found a good picture of Nattie or was able to break into her photo files, please send me some.
A library update: We have the bookshelves up and are starting to fill them with books currently. They look a bit bare, but we will get there. We have a computer for all to use, some lounge chairs and a couple of smaller half-round tables in there. We are still working on pegs for hanging jackets and stuff like that. We have someone painting roses in the room (as she is Nattie Rose). We are planning the dedication to be done during children’s week which is the first week of June.
Thanks again for all your help. I will keep you posted on the progress.—Jen Lewis

As the days turn into weeks, months and now more than a year, one thing hasn’t changed. I will always miss Natalie very much, think of questions that I wish I could ask, and see things that remind me of her.
Natalie’s friends have told me how much they appreciated her supportive attitude and philosophical outlook on life. How much they were helped by her blog posts, emails, phone calls and cards. I thought of these things when my lifelong friend sent me this video. I hope you like it!

Now back to regularly scheduled programming.—ND

Nattie Reads
First, thanks to Heather, Jen, Nattie’s Mom (Happy Birthday!), Skipper, Cynthia, Maria, Cathie Jo, StephanieG, Aunt Anne, Dana, Becky, Lizas’ Eyeview, Pattie, Heather R, Mary Lynn, BlondeBlogger, Joy, Wendy, Cheryl, Jane, Dawn and everyone else who has vsited and commented recently.
Some of you may have missed this comment that was added to a recent entry.

Hi Natties dad,
I go to church where Natalie went to and also started the MOMS group there. I work in the children’s department and on the children’s ministry team and we have been discussing the library we are going to do in Natties honor. We would like to call it the Natalie Rose Garden Library or something along those lines and once completed we would like to do a dedication of the library in her honor. We would like to have a picture of Natalie to frame and put in the library. Might you be able to get us a picture of Natalie that you would like to see put up in memory of her in her library? We would really appreciate any help.
Thanks so much. Just so you know, she is not forgotten and she is thought of often. I miss her and what strength she showed and stood for. I only hope I am living a life like hers, faithful and pure of heart.—jen lewis

Jen, that is a great idea. Unfortunately, most of what I have are low-resolution jpgs such as the one above—which may not be the best, but certainly is appropriate. I don’t know if I have anything that would print larger than a postage stamp. If anyone else has a negative or a high-res scan that could be printed to 8×10 or larger, please let me know.

Merry Christmas!

birthday 2006
I don’t suppose Nattie would approve of this photo—but it’s the only one I took on her last birthday, two years ago today. She said she didn’t know if she could eat anything, but she loved red velvet cake so that’s what her Aunt Anne and I brought (along with pizza for Anna and Jonathan). She was very sick, so we didn’t stay; if only we had known how sick and why…and how little time we had left.
The sadness we feel is for ourselves. She is so much better now, it is beyond our imagination.
Happy 35th birthday, Natalie Rose. Love you!—Daddy

Happy Birthday…

A letter of thanks

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

For a brief change of pace, here are excerpts from a letter I recieved today from the chairwomen of the local American Cancer Society “Relay for Life” in which our team “Remembering Natalie Rose York” participated. Because so many of you supported our effort in Nattie’s memory, I thought I would share it with you.


One year ago today…

Sunday, June 15th, 2008

…we took Natalie’s ashes to the cometary. But I am growing weary of recounting those sad milestones. If you want to read about that, it’s here.
Still, I can’t avoid noticing one more moment of personal melodrama; we buried my only child on this date last year…and today is “Father’s Day.” Nothin’ I can do about that. I know we all have days of grief…and life goes on.
