Casey Fuglseth

Casey was my dear fiance and our son's father. He loved life and had several missions he wanted to complete someday. He loved to write. He was so strong. Casey was a tortured intellectual. He was so smart and made differences where he could with the resources he had. He contributed to Amnesty International, Sierra Club, and the WWF. He worked long, hard hours so that we could have a better life. Casey would question everything involving government and religion. He could talk for hours about national and global issues. He was wise beyond his years. We loved each other through the ugly and the beautiful. No matter what, we stayed together. In one brief moment, all that we had was gone. Holding our son, I just cried and wasn't truly aware of what was going on. I love you still baby. You're peaceful now and don't have to deal with the weight of the world. I know society broke your heart. Trystan looks like you. He will grow up to love you. I will tell him how you read him Thoraeu when he was just a couple weeks old. And on Sunday's you watched the Vikings play; both in your shirts. It was a wonderful ritual that I hoped would continue for the rest of our lives. You are not here, but you are not sleeping. You are the wind surrounding us. You are the surreal twilight in the mornings sunrise. Everytime I look into our son's eyes, there you are, smiling back at me. Baby I love you. I will never know what was weighing so heavily on your mind at that moment. You were a righteous soldier of peace. A true seeker. I will hold you close always. Our son will know you and I will tell him how much you adored him. Just the 2 of you together...Weren't we worth living for? I love you I love you

I love you without knowing how, why, or from where
I love you straight-forwardly without complexities or pride
I love you because I know of no other way than this
So close that your hand on my chest is my hand
So close that when you close your eyes I fall asleep ~unknown~
