Losses and Change
August 2021
I have spent the last week with My dearest Wesley, my nephew that many of you have heard a great deal about over the years, as he was bearing the deepest of grief for the death of Olivia. He is more like my son, although I don’t have any children. Olivia, the love of his life and mother of the three kids who had become like his kids the past 2 years, died in an ATV accident. I have included one of Wesley’s tributes, one of mine, and her obituary here. In addition, the video link is included for the photos presented of her young life. She turned 26 in April this year. Thank you for your continued prayers and love as the pain and loss of this find expanded space. Shock, numbness, regret, and questioning are active and running high. Along with those deep, tender emotions are gratitude and amazement that so much love is possible in just a few short years. We had just returned from her life-long dream to go to Disneyland on Friday. All of us, Wesley, all the kids, including Hadilyn, were fulfilling that dream just last week. We returned in the height of joy on Friday, she died on Saturday. The way of it. Treasure whatever is close to you dear friends. The timeline is not our preference. 
Wesley tribute:

My Sweet Olivia, Nothing made me happier than seeing you smile.

I’ll always have regrets, whys, and ifs. But I just need to be thankful for having you and your kids in my life. Y’all brought me so much joy. So many people that were close to you have thanked me for all I’ve done for you. I tried so hard to give you everything you deserved because you were so special. I’m so glad I got to be a part of your childhood dream. We had so many things going for us and planned for our future. I’m just thankful for the memories we made together.

The Love and Support people have sent us from all across the country is truly unbelievable, I can’t thank y’all enough. Today as we lay your body to rest, You were surrounded by so many people that cared about you and us. Your casket, flowers, just everything was so beautiful.

I’ve read stories about people losing their soul mate and it’s sad but until it happens to you, you never know what that pain really feels like, it’s just so deep in your soul and hurts so bad. Losing you has been the hardest thing I have ever experienced. I don’t know how many days I have left in this world, but I’ll be able to see you one day. I’ll always love you regardless of wherever my life takes me.

You were My Fish, as we used to laugh about because the sea is full of fish. But this fish is mine, Don’t touch my fish. Thank you for being so good to me and loving me.

Martha tribute:

You, Olivia Davis, are a treasured blessing to me, Wes, your babies, your family, friends, coworkers, classmates, and beyond. I was diligent to further inspire you in your passion for life. Loving. Living. Dreaming. Creating. Achieving. Becoming. Going places. Bucket list fun. I simply couldn’t do enough for you and it was sure a blessing trying. You sparked and Inspired me too angel. And that I promise you — is eternal. You will never die to me. Love always. Mar Mar. Unspeakable thanks to all you friends who have poured forth your hearts of love and support. Blessed I am. We are.

This was from Olivia's trip to South Carolina earlier this year, she stated it was the most peaceful place in the whole world she had experienced. She made this photo her profile picture. Another dream fulfilled.

Olivia planted flowers at her and Wesley’s home last year. It was her first time planting flowers. These were the only ones that came up again this year. She was delighted to see the renewal and shocked that others had to be re-planted each year. I relate to both the shock and delight.

Here's a link to the website which includes a photo tribute to Olivia's life: https://bartleyandsons.com/obituary/olivia-davis--1?fbclid=IwAR3L2GRXC0AHBsIBiWa7oQohNHop3YryzRun0HpgXpJXsUsXZmfDqJWv-eQ
Boarding the return plane to come home. Smiles and tears and gratitude galore.
