So its my weekly ritual to watch Bones, sort of a treat for me, since we don’t really have TV on the truck. They were discussing their wills, and Bones’ will was 302 pages long, while Booth only had sticky notes..so I’m going for something in the middle.
I do not think I will die anytime soon, but its good to be prepared and give folks some idea of your wishes..I want to be cremated and have my ashes tossed out the window of a truck while driving down the back roads along side the kentucky bluegrass fields of young horses. That way when I am eaten along with their grazing or breathed in by these wild and beautiful creatures, I will at last be able to run and be full of the spirit that has so long been inside of my heart.
If I die, I would really love for things to be easier for my family. So, here goes. To my sons, Hunter and Liam Thornton, I leave my books, photographs and personal items, including one steamer trunk each, the black and white to Hunter and the wooden to Liam, to keep and carry their treasures in(these are family heirlooms from my great great aunt, used in 1896 for her travels.) I hope you find your own adventures, great ones, and always know that your mother was infinitely proud to be given such great gifts, loved you more than anything in the universe, and always hopes to be a part of your lives no matter how close or far apart we are.
To my darlIing Kevin, I leave my great grandfathers bible, and all of my music, my laptop and phone, and all of my animals,to do with as he sees fit. Whether that is to keep them all together or to take them to Best Friends Animal sanctuary in Utah, so that they can live out their days together as a pack. He was my ultimate partner and friend. Giving me grace, and courage, even more than I could have imagined. Thank you for being my true heart.
To my best friend Tonie Marie Perales, I leave all of my jewelry and shoes. She will know what to keep, as she has fabulous taste.
My parents know I love them, but have enough stuff to deal with on their own, so I am just leaving them with the knowledge that they were good to me, and I was lucky to grow up and maintain a relationship with them and my grandparents as well. I love all of you very much.
To all of my friends, and you know who you are! Thank you for being there for me always, the love and kindnesses we shared through the years, children growing up and moving on our different ways, you are always in my heart and mind.
I do not expect to die anytime soon, but also do not wish to lose out on the chance to tell everyone who was so very important to me, how much I appreciated and loved being a part of your lives..
Here’s to many adventures to come, years to pass and love to be shared until this is actually necessary.
