Chele, I always expected to meet you and Seabee sometime somewhere in the running universe.  If not this year, then next, or the year after that.  That's how I feel about all of you who I've chatted and joked with but never met.  We are all part of a family.  Maybe that is why I as well as the others here feel as if we've lost a family member.  All I can say is I am so sorry.  But your great big family is here for you.

 

I am so sorry that he fell victim to the inner demons that have befallen so many Iraq war vets.  :(

Oh my god!  How awful, Chele!!!  I know he had been so affected by his ex-wife's murder and how it affected his children.  But this is just too much!   

 

I'm so sorry Chele, may you find peace and comfort in the coming days.

Thanks to all of you for your prayers, and comforts, and most of all for loving Seabee. I remember seeing Seabee's posts and that he was in Iraq. I admired him, but figured he was probably bombarded with enough people so I left my posts to him minimal. It was December 17, 2007 when Seabee and I started talking "offline"

 

By January 7th 2008 I knew I loved him

 

Feb 29th 2008 I asked if he would marry me (it was sadie hawkins day)

 

March 24th 2008 I met him in person for the first time

 

Nov 12th, 2011 we were offically married.

 

For Solitude...stories...we did everything together. We could have intellectual conversations that lasted for hours. He spoiled me so much I put on 20 pounds. He loved Dr Zhivago and My Fair Lady. He was the fastest and neatest mechanic I ever met. Although he could outpace me easily just for sheer virtue of his long legs, he always ran with me. We were training for our first marathon when I started getting knee problems and had to stop...I told him to keep training, but he wouldn't. we were always talking. I could leave the parking lot and be on my way to school and call him and talk to him all the way to school, between classes, all the way home. He always opened the car door for me. ALWAYS. He always dried me off after a shower. We always held hands. He could imitate a chimp so hysterically. And he was generous. He helped a friend of ours get her car back from title loan sharks right before they auctioned it and he made them wipe all the crayon of the car windows lol. He stood up for her. When she lost her apartment he let her stay with us for a month and then gave her the money to be able to get into a new apartment. I always felt safe and loved with him. Even if we had no money, to be able to be with him was all i wanted. He suffered a miserable childhood and a quite challenging adult life. It was amazing he turned out to be the wonderful person he was. He was a wonderful example of not letting your past dictate your future. He was a wonderful, amazing, beautiful person, and although it kills me inside like someone is taking a spoon and stabbing my heart, I am thankful to have had the time I did with him. I would rather have had 1 day with him than to have never known him at all. He was soul mate and showed me what love could be.


I am certain that your success as a runner, and in all things is due more to the strength of your fighting spirit than anything else. Seabee

chele,

thank you for posting some of those memories

 

He loved you very much.  (You seem like an amazing woman; I hope to meet you someday.)

 

I wish I'd met your sweet, wonderful Seabee. He made the world a better place.

so sorry I never got to meet you in person ... what a great person ... so sorry for your loss, chele  :-(


the PRT is not somewhere to drop my morals and ethics and roll in the mud and muck and pretend those I am talking to aren't really people at all and it's alright to treat them like dirt.

Chele - I haven't been around the PRT for awhile now but I had to come in and tell you that I'm thinking of you and hoping that Seabee found his peace.  HUGS!

I was away from KR for the most part for the past few days while bard was in town, so I only caught this now.

 

Chele, you have my deepest sympathies and hugs

I haven't been here in a very long time. Thought I would stop in to see what has been going on. Saw this post and now I am in shock. I am so sorry for your loss Chele. I can't even begin to imagine what you are going through. My husband and I are very close. We spend all of our free time together so I feel your pain. I am sorry I had to come back and read something like this. I will be thinking about you during this difficult time. Stay strong:(

Chele,

 

I've been out of the loop for a while so I'm just catching up. As profoundly sad this makes me, I can't even imagine your sorrow. You and Seabee have touched everyone here in one way or other and our hearts cry for you.

 

Rob
