This year will be my 7th Ovenight Walk. My first was to honor the son of our friend, who had ended his own life shortly after his 27th birthday, the victim of undiagnosed depression. He lives on our collective memory as “The Night Watchman”. Since that time, so many friends have shared their own stories of loss, of struggling with mental illness, and their own attempts. I grieve with them, love them, support them, and am thankful for the ones who are still with us, still fighting, still talking, still living.
My fundraising goal this year is $1250 – any contribution supporting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is much appreciated .

My husband passed last night. Suddenly, without warning. My heart is broken into a thousand million pieces. It may never heal, ever. I am about to go into the first night without him. Don’t know how to do this…

Today, our friend gunnersmama must ask their family’s vet to help her Ariel kitty cross the Rainbow Bridge. She’s survived her ailments these many, many months with little, if any, change to her spunky personality. But now she’s ready to join frolicky friends in the Meadow.
Ariel has been a member gunnersmama’s & gunnersdad’s family since they purchased their current hoam, complete with abandoned kitty. Her favorite activities have been hanging out with mom, blowing raspberries at Henry goggeh, and lying on the deck and soaking in the sunnyshines.
Please share beams with their fam.
Here is a pixor of this year’s Overnight Walk shirt – with sadly more stars 😦
My sister Caroline is walking with me, and my sister Katy is helping with the rest stops.
Having all my cheezies and teeps in my pockets makes it easier to walk through the night. 🙂 I have plenty of trail mix to share, and song sheets for the late-night singalong 🙂
Cheezlubs and headbonks,
