Washington State Veterans Cemetery

Today would have found me at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington DC as one of the volunteers chosen to place roses on the headstones of our fallen military heroes. With that opportunity cancelled, I honored our heroes here at the Washington State Veterans Cemetery in Medical Lake! It was an absolute honor to pay tribute to several military heroes here locally!! #neverforget #militaryheroes #arlingtonnationalcemetery #memorialflowerassociation

Holy Cross Cemetery

For 32 years I have come to this exact same spot on Memorial Day weekend to visit my Mothers gravesite and this year it appeared more beautiful than I have ever seen it before! My Mom was always proud of her manicured green grass and beautiful flowers in her yard so I am sure she is up there in Heaven giving the grounds keepers here at Holy Cross Cemetery a big smile and thumbs up for her beautiful surroundings!! #32years #holycrosscemetery #neverforgotten

National Police Week

This is the start of National Police Week to remember all of the Law Enforcement Officers lost in the line of duty and to honor all of those who continue to serve and protect. Last year I had the privilege of attending National Police Week in Washington DC and attended all of the memorials and ceremonies. The Candlelight Vigil with 25,000 other supporters on the National Mall was an experience I will never forget! Remembering all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and honoring the brave officers behind the badge! #2020nationalpoliceweek #backtheblue #behindthebadgefoundation #neverforget

National Police Week 5k

This morning I participated in the Virtual National Police Week 5K and did so in honor of Kittitas County Deputy Ryan Thompson who was killed in the line of duty on March 19, 2019. It was an incredible honor to finish my 5K here at the Washington State Law Enforcement Memorial where his name will be added as one of the 2019 Fallen Officers. Thank you Deputy Thompson for your ultimate sacrifice, you will never be forgotten! #NPW5K #nationalpoliceweek #backtheblue

Snake River Canyon

The uncertainty of our life with COVID 19 reminds me so much of how I felt when I was handed my cancer diagnosis 10 years ago! Cancer didn’t bring me to my knees, it brought me to my feet, and I am rediscovering the same strength right now to challenge this new way of life! Cancer required me to be strong and I hope for a stronger and brighter future for everyone!! #hope4all #cancerwarriornetwork #warriormarathonrunner
