    Re: LDF's Retro Trip Report: July 14, 1995 - My Best Day At Disneyland

    You lost your life's partner and the mom to your beautiful children. You honor her well with this beautiful tribute. Remembering can ease the pain a little.

    Awesome and wonderful memories.... no one will ever be able to take those away from you. Yours was a special relationship, and each time you look at these things it can bring back all the warm wonderful times the two of you shared together!! Thank you sooo much for sharing the memories with those of us who never got a chance to meet that incredibly special person, your wife.

    Thank you so much for sharing that with us. It really shows how Disneyland is unlike any theme park in the world.

    What a great thread! I loved reading it and looking at all of your pictures! Thank you so much for sharing! It's very obvious why your wife said yes when you asked her to marry you!

    Re: LDF's Retro Trip Report: July 14, 1995 - My Best Day At Disneyland

    Thanks for your encouraging words everyone. I was doing ok today until I started scanning in more shots of my wife for my daughter as she is putting a mommy and me scrapbook together. While I was scanning I made the mistake of listening to a couple cuts from Thomas Newman on itunes. (Note to self: Stay away from "The Letter that Never Came" from the Lemony Snicket soundtrack.)

    I also wanted to thank each and every one of you who take the time to put a trip report together. I THRIVE on shots of you with your friends and family having a great time. If I can shake off this cold I'll be back tomorrow with my kids as the DLR has been our laughing place for the past several years...but especially the past few months in particular.

    As soon as I read Suzie's comment, I thought "Boy...I hope Froggy doesn't see this." Evolution of my family. If that doesn't have a double meaning for Froggy, I don't know what does....

    Thank you for sharing something so personal with all of us, and I wish you all the best.

    Plus, I can see you are obviously one of those persons, like me, that saves EVERYTHING -
    Thanks Froggy. One of the reasons I enjoy your reports is that you are obviously having such a great time with your wife and son. Every time I see the Tadpole it makes me smile. And I THOUGHT I had tossed this stuff as I hadn't seen it since I moved into our new home several years ago. I guess it helps to clean out the garage every once in a while.

    Thanks Pengy. I'm sorry you never had the chance to meet her as she was an incredible lady. And yes, the Penguin shot was with my daughter when she was not quite a year old. I have vivid memories of a group of musicians in Frontierland, it could have been the Billies, seranading my daughter in that yellow rain poncho. I hope you get your shot with the elusive Penguins some time soon.

    And thanks again everyone for the pms and encouragement. I just finished reading a book by Billy Crystal called "700 Sundays." In it he describes how the scene in City Slickers where he talks about his best day and worst day was actually true. And then I read "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" and I was a total wreck after I got to person #4. There's something healing, or theraputic for me in reading other people's stories. I'm looking forward to reading many more of yours in the months and hopefully years ahead.

    Great trip report. I was there that summer in '95. I didn't know that would be my last ride on the PeopleMover. Your wife looked like a great woman. I hope you feel like she's right there with you even today, especially when you're in Disneyland or the Disneyland Hotel.

    What a wonderful trip report. I was smiling at the skyway, and thinking how lovely your wife looked, then I got to the end.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I hope that sharing such special memories helps you a little.
