I only wish the pictures of you both were of you smiling with Heath and not crying with his tributes.  Thank you for being so brave.  You have allowed us who are too far away to see his home without the flashing of lightbulbs-it means so much to me.

Meryl, John

Thank you so much for doing this sad pilgrimage on our behalf.

As soon as I can I will go to Camp #2 (snow permitting) and Elbow Falls to pay my respects on behalf of all of us. Saturday is my BBM anniversary, I was looking so much forward to celebrating in on the BBM sites. And now... :'( :'( :'(

with much love to all

Oh mouk, that would be so lovely if you would pay your respects up there in Brokeback Country, too.  That's where he'll always live, to me.

It's sad hearing folks call John's and my visit a pilgrimage.  Our Pilgrimage last July was so joyous, and this one so subdued.  But we can't fix it, so we'll just have to stand it.  :(

It's lovely to see you here, mouk.  :-*

Hey Mouk! {{hug}}
What a thoughtful sentiment to visit Campsite #2 - wish it was under different circumstances. I hope the cairn is still intact. Thank you for making the trek for all of us.
Wishing you peace.

Thank you Friend! What a great thing to do.
I wish I could go there. Maybe one day!

Thank you Meryl and John,
