     Our  world came crashing down Monday evening when my cousin Shasta Foulk called with
more family news.  Being worried about his Mom our Great Aunt, asked, IS your Mom okay"?
He said yes she is fine. But he had bad, bad news.

    Silvia and Allen were returning from Stuart's funeral in Berryville, ARK.  they did not make it home.  She called me from Cheyenne, Wyo. about 7:30 probably a little later, Sunday evening,we talked for more than an hour, Allen, Silvia and I.   They were headed on home and it had started to snow.

Allen told me it was a light dry snow drifting around and not bad at all. I worried about 1-80 because of the wind and ice it gets in bad weather.  We talked about weather, and family event they had just left and their wants when they got home.

Silvia and I generally talked at least twice a week since her parents passed last summer in 2016.

She was going to send me an article when she got home.

A busy day Monday and I kept waiting for the phone to ring. Alas, it was cousin with the news in early evening.

LYMAN, Wyo. — Two Magic Valley residents died in a Monday morning crash in Wyoming.
Alan Peterson, 54, of Eden was driving west in a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup on Interstate 80 when his vehicle slid on an icy bridge deck of an overpass at the Lyman interchange, said Trooper Mike Adams of the Wyoming Highway Patrol. The pickup spun to the right and slid off the north side of the roadway and down an embankment, rolling several times. The pickup landed on its roof, between the interstate and the westbound on-ramp.
 You can look up the rest if you want it.  This had to have happened around 5 am or so. Since they were pulling out of rest area in Cheyenne around 10 pm maybe a little before 10.
My brother, his wife and other cousins went to the services in Hazelton, ID yesterday. 
17 October 2017 
Understanding it was a very nice event, with much family there.  
Wanting to visit remaining sibling soon. It is a day trip up the coast to the old homestead area before the family moving back to Wyoming to care for Dolly's  Mom. So long ago. We miss them all this family does. 
Our children socialized and shared with these deceased family members.
Rest In Peace, Stuart Foulk, Silvia Foulk Peterson and Allen Peterson

In Memory of my Cousin Stuart Jay Foulk

I could not make the trip to Arkansas to say Goodbye.  My heart was so heavy, I cried.

While at Mass today I remembered this cousin and wished him and his family a non heavy heart for he would not want us so sad.

 Stuart was born in 1956.  I was starting my Junior year of High School. He had an older brother which we had already shared time with. I baby sat him many days as he grew to a young man.

 His sister was born on our Dad's birthday the year of my marriage to my husband.

 I moved to Santa Clara to live with Aunt and Uncle and our cousins Ken and Dolly lived across town from them. I stayed with them when Ken was on the road driving bus. Having gotten to know them very well.  Lots of fun.

His sister was born and  I then married.   His sister was the first baby hubby ever held.  Dolly took a picture of the baby Silvia and Fred grinning and smiling at the wee one.

Our families were very close, his father was my Dad's cousin.  Grandma's nephew. Over the years we developed a closer relationship.

We always loved to stop at their home when migrating between San Diego and Santa Rosa area.
 It was either breakfast or supper and over night.

We lost him the other day.  Our children all remembered him well. One son talked about driving up and sharing time with him.  Another remembered him as so much fun.  

For a while we lost track of the children but not the parents. Having refound the children this was a terrific loss to us. O we did not loose them everyone was building families and exchanging Xmas cards and always chatting with his parents.

God please  take good care of his family and his friends. I am sure they are reeling from the sudden loss of such a terrific human.

To his wife and children may GOD give you Strength and remember you are not forgotten.

Our doors always open.

Today I also said  good bye to another cousin that was near here. Both very dear people in my heart. And our children's hearts.  Tomorrow I will write about him.

Yes I snagged this off his page to share it here. The picture says it all. Thanks Stuart for your friendship and  your love and giving us such great family to share with us.
