My loveing wife Chelsea passed away Tuesday January 10th. She was hit by a truck with a plow.

My wife loved books and stories, she was always buying books and reading them. It would be rare for her to not have one in her bag. It was the love of books that brought us togehter. She had such a joy about her and cared so much for everyone around her. She would always make me smile when i was sad. She would get so excited by the smallest things and would dance around. Her light and her life was so special. Everyone who knew her loved her and even strangers who crossed her path left with a smile.

The loss of her is a loss to the world, no one will ever read the book she was writing or hear her thoughts on the world. Whenever told her "I love you" she would always reply "I love you more". She was too young and too special, her life ended way before it's time.

We are all hurting and we know in time we will need to lay her to rest. Funerals are not cheap, and we cannot afford it on our own. Above all else pray for us and the familys affected by this loss.

Give what ever you can, we are greatful for every cent and every good word and prayer.

Somehow the words thank you are not enough, the support has been overwhelming. There has been some good news, Chelsea's bag has been found, its being held in evidence at the Wyoming police department.

Thank you to everyone who donated and everyone who looked for the bag.

We are still looking for my wife's bag, it was never recovered after the accident. The police say the bag was either dragged by the snow plow or was taken from the scene. It's a green messenger bag, if you find this bag please contact me.

Dear Ben, Chris, Cliff and families-We are holding you close to our hearts in prayer. Much love to you all during this most dark time. If I remember right, she enjoyed Shakespeare. This quote is fitting for this time. "When she shall die, Take her and cut her out in little stars, And she will make the face of heaven so fine, That all the world will be in love with the night And pay no worship to the garish sun" This world was a better place for her presence. Peace and love, The Pitcher Family

Hoping they ID the driver soon so the family can receive some benefits from his auto insurance! There is no reason this family should have the financial burden! So sad.

Glad that it was there. I thought about it today and wondered if police had it because the news said they used her cell phone to find out her name. I thought maybe her phone was in the bag. You are in my prayers and thoughts each day, Ben.

This week at the JWM there was much remembrance of you, Chelsea, so I gladly give my week's wages in your memory- my honor to have worked by your side for too short a time. May Ben & Family be blessed by your everlasting spirit that will never leave us.
