Jesse WAS HERE 1996/09/24 - 2010/02/03

Approved

Our family will always remember Jesse as the "chill kid," a young man with great hair and a smirk and a contagious smile and laugh. He did more in his 13 years on this planet than most will do in a lifetime. We miss you, Jesse. Cheers to you for bringing so many more families together.

Murphy WAS HERE 1994/05/01 - 2016/08/14

Approved

Murphy lived a truly one of a kind life on Earth. He was as funny as he was introspective, carefree as he was intense, and goofy as he was intellectual. "Murph Man" was an incredible athlete - towering above us all at 6'4". He skied on the Division I Middlebury College Ski Team, but was also a skilled mountain biker and avid hiker. Murph did not waste a single day. His energy and enthusiasm carried him to the summits of many 14,000 ft. peaks in his home state of Colorado before sunrise, and ripping down mountain bike trails well past sundown.

Murphy had an open heart and open mind to all, and his loss is felt deeply by a wide group of friends and family. He continues to inspire all that loved him to fill their days with laughter, adventure, and connection!

Seth WAS HERE 1985/03/21 - 2008/07/15

Approved

Seth was a remarkable young man. He died at age 23. He lived his short but full life with passion and zest. Seth was bright, loved to read and study, yet he could kick back and enjoy strumming his guitar. Theater was an important part of his youth - classes and performances. Seth loved to travel and in the summer of 2007, after graduating from George Washington University, magna cum laude with majors in Political Science and Dramatic Literature he hit the road and traveled the U.S. His next stop was Boston University Law School where he completed his first year. Summer of 2008 he was in New Orleans doing a Clerkship for the Public Defenders office when something went very wrong. Seth was incredibly conscientious about his diabetes. As long as I live, I will never understand what happened. That is the insidious nature of this disease that so many people don’t understand.
