Super Angie...heartbroken

I really miss my mom

Super Angie...touched

I am deeply moved by how many friends came to my mom's memorial on Saturday. I'm so touched by the cards I received in the mail. For the beautiful flowers and the emails. Thank you so much for honoring my mom, for sharing memories, and giving me your support. It means so much.


Super Angie.... Stars on Ice

Every year, growing up, my mom took me to Stars on Ice. Some how we managed to get front row most years. I hadn't bought tickets to this year's show because it wasn't coming to Salt Lake, Denver or Vegas. So when I came to Seattle for the memorial and found out there were in town, I just HAD to go...but it was the night before the memorial, and I just felt wrong about going. BUT I found out they had a show on Sunday in Wenatchee, so I went to that...and got FRONT ROW/ON ICE SEATS!!!!!!!!
As always, the group numbers are so fantastic. Here is Jamie and Ben rock out!

Fun costumes, great music and all my heros.

Kurt, in the middle of a triple jump! amazing!

Jamie and David doing a death spiral.

Tanith looked adorable with her short wig .
Sasha Cohen!!!!
Another beautiful and emotional group number

Katia...enough said.

Tanith and Ben...

so much passion
Katia Gordeeva!
Kurt Browning. Shortly after I took this pic, he looked at me and motioned at my Russian Olympic coat and gave me a nod and a smile. EEK! So exciting.

More Katia.
She too noticed my jacket and gave me a BIG grin.

Todd. It was fun being so close to all the skaters.
Joannie.... amazing triple jumps!

I had so much fun at this show. I felt the presence of my mom there. I also felt such a connection to all the skaters and they were all so sweet to make such personal eye contact with all of us on the front row. I've met a lot of them in person and just feel so connected to them. It was a great show...just the thing I needed!

Super Angie...Helma and Ed

My Uncle Ed and Aunt Helma came over yesterday. It was so great to spend time with these two lovely people. Ed is my mom's only sibling. Tanith quickly took to both of them--wanting to show them her new scooter.
Helma and Tanith. Tan also danced for them, but I don't have pictures of that.
Me and Helma--someone on FB thought we were sisters. I'm okay with that!
Ed entertained Tan with his iPad-- they watched youtube animal videos. So adorable!

Super Angie...who I am

I am Arla's grand daughter.
Spitting image of my father.
And when the day is done, my mama's still my biggest fan.

Sometimes, I'm clueless and I'm clumsey,
but I've got friends who love me and they know where I stand.
Its all a part of me!
Its who I am!

I'm a saint and I'm a sinner
I'm a loser and I'm a winner
I'm steady and unstable


I am Arla's grand daughter.
Spitting image of my father.
And when the day is done, my mama's still my biggest fan.


Super Angie...blessed to my soul

I have been blessed. Blessed to have my mom speak directly to my heart. I don't doubt anything. I know she was proud of me--she whispered it to my soul. I know she thought I was beautiful--I feel it. I know she was happy I was skating. I know she forgave me for being rude at times. I know she loved me unconditionally. I know we will see each other again.

So many thoughts have come to my mind and heart and soul, and I just know how my mom loved me. There is no doubting. I just know.

Super Angie..Tan's new scooter

We bought Tan a scooter and today my dad put it together for her. Lets just say, she is one very happy little girl!

Pop and his girl!

Super Angie... HAIL!

Tanith had a blast playing out in the hail. I love Seattle weather.

Super what?

now what?

I'm lucky and blessed to have so many friends who care. Sending texts. Emailing. Calling. Leaving comments. Friends who are looking at pictures of my mom and making comments. Friends who write to lend support and prayers. Friends who are traveling to come to the service. Friends who send me poems. Friends who share memories. Friends who take the time....

You are appreciated. More then you know!
