Melanie

To our great sorrow we have to record the death of our dear friend Melanie Montague Carpenter, a vibrant, brave, funny woman: a true original. Everyone here at this blog will miss her very much.

ON THE IDITAROD TRAIL (MORE)

And congratulations to Snowhook Kennel – musher Justin Savidis, CEO Rebecca, and those terrific dogs – led in the end by a surprising member of the team, as you’ll see from Rebecca’s overnight report – on the courageous race they ran this year. A real triumph, given the conditions:

“The dogs did exactly as I trained them to run,” AJ said shortly before he fell asleep. Yes, the dogs did quite well. They led him through terrain, the likes of which he hopes never to see again. They darted through ferocious winds to deliver him to the next checkpoint. And, in the final seventy-seven mile stretch, caught in a blow hole, AJ trusted the dogs he could no longer see in the whiteout conditions. Out of a band of amazing canine athletes and partners who did he choose to lift above his head to touch paw to burled arch?—The whimsical Louisa Mae. Having led sporadically throughout the season she did not rank among his main leaders going into the race. Yet, this sweet girl led the team for the final 200 miles of the race and across the finish line in a race that will go down in Iditarod history.

Stories are slowly being shared about the difficulty of the race, yet each tale is punctuated by the black bruises that span the length of AJ’s body. It was a hard fought finish line.

And now, we rest.

***
Thank you to the Plunderers who made our race possible. It was an honor to dedicate our 2014 Iditarod to Melanie.

    What a wonderful accomplishment by all the members of Snowhook. Well done Louisa Mae. You all deserve to feel proud.

    I’m glad that the race was dedicated to Melanie. Good bye dear friend.

    Plunder on everyone.

    Melanie will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her, her family, and her friends. I want to share with you an Eskimo Legend that my dad learned from a friend when Blou went to the Bridge. It says it all.

    “Perhaps they are not the stars,
    but rather openings in Heaven
    where the Love of our lost ones
    pours through and shines down upon us
    to let us know that they are happy.”

    Through the tears, there are such wonderful memories of dear Melanie that have blessed our lives over these past five years (and for Amalia even longer). From the birth of another generation of Newf puppies, to the walk/runs down by the river, the dips in the pool, and the joys of being the mother of the groom, to the everyday good cheer and love that she spread, there are so many wonderful memories that we will have. I know that my life was enriched immeasurably over the too short period that I have known her through her presence here. While her departure is so difficult, knowing that she is at peace and pain free, in the company of those she has loved who have traveled before her, softens the sadness felt at this time. Good luck but not good-bye, as you will remain a part of our hearts forever.

    Here is the image that comes to mind:

    Our dear friend, stepping up on her soapbox, with a to-do list in hand.

    1. Waltzing across the Arctic, helping Snowhook cross the finish line. (Check.)

    2. Inspiring an east coast P.I.G. Convention, so that Golinka would not be alone.
    (Check)

    Items 3-8 are completed and checked off.

    And with her list complete, she claps her hands together with satisfaction, and steps off her soapbox and into eternity.

    As always, she did things exactly right. Well done, dear friend.

    God saw she was getting tired, and a cure was not to be.
    So He put His arms around her and whispered “Come with me”.
    With tearful eyes we watched her struggle and slowly fade away. Although we loved her dearly, we could not make her stay.
    A golden heart stopped beating, beloved woman was put to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

    All of you have such beautiful, comforting words. Thank you. Linda said it best for me, “I have no words” to say, at least for right now. I am heartbroken.

    Cherokee, I love the pictures of you that your mom is posting.

    Howlers, Clyde can be our Rookie of the Year, and Louisa Mae will receive our Golden Harness Award for her outstanding performance during this year’s Iditarod.

    Well done, Snowhook!
    Well done, Louisa Mae! You rock!

    Melanie, what can I say? That you were funny, smart, and wonderful. That you loved your family, and your blog family as well. You will forever be in my heart, and when I look to the night sky, I will be looking for the brightest dancing star, in her purple gown.

    I would like to share this in memory of our Melanie.

    One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonged to him, and the other to the LORD.

    When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footsteps in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

    This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed you most you would leave me.”

    The LORD replied, “My precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.”

    Saying Goodbye to Our Friend.

    Each morning for the 2 weeks, we have opened our computer to to see something that has never failed to lift our spirits.
    The wonderful Snowhook Banner, dedicating this year’s race to the one who loves purple, filled the screen..our own special Plunderer Iditarod Map in one corner.
    A smiling face filled with Happiness and Joy looks down on the trail and the Race dedicated to her.

    This is how we will always see her…loving her Newfs, laughing and joking and snickering, enjoying her music & books, her great pride in her sons…our beautiful, beautiful friend here with us, now and always, on Chet’s Blog.

    And whenever our spirits are down, you can count on it, there she’ll be… saying…”Plunder On!, my friends, Plunder On!”

    Let us not forget there are Courageous Mushers & Teams still on the trail.

  34. O'Howlers
    3:48 pm on March 14th, 2014

    What trip is Masquers’ mom taking?

    Our mom is already planning her next trip. She read that there will be a Melanie party in the Springtime, when the weather is nice.

    For those of you on fb, Melanie’s son Rob posted a very sweet picture of his mom on Zoe’s page.

  35. Masquers
    4:19 pm on March 14th, 2014

    Howlers! A trip in the springtime! How KOOL would that be!
    To answer your question: My mom will be leaving for Montana next week to visit her sister. This will be a real treat…she has guaranteed seating…no standby. WoooHooo!
    Too bad ACatty & Elliot have moved to Missoula. sniff.
    Thank you for the heads up on Rob’s F/b post.
    Now we are crying again.

  36. BearSpiritDog
    4:57 pm on March 14th, 2014

    O’Howlers: Nana Always Believed they shared many Interests and after reading Rob’s tribute to his mother she knows for sure.

    This somehow makes it so much more Difficult…Knowing they can never meet in this Lifetime to talk about all these Kool Things they both loved…and that she will remain the Best Friend We Never Knew.

  37. O'Howlers
    5:06 pm on March 14th, 2014

    That is sad, BSD. Mom and Kat were so fortunate to be able to meet her. They will cherish that friendship forever.
    But Mom believes that we have all met each other on this here blog. Although not a physical meeting, we all share so much more with each other than we share with many friends who we know in person.

    Sorry to be so late. It has been a day here.

    My last thought as I fell asleep early this morning was
    “And the lights all went out in Mass-a-chussets….”*

    It must have been a power surge as a new star was born.

    Hello family – reporting in from the east coast gathering of Plunderers.

    It has been a day of laughter and tears and hugs and support. We have done lots and lots of talking. Then we went to the butterfly conservancy and spent the whole afternoon surrounded by flitting, fluttering, beautiful wings. There is such joy there – it is impossible to be there and not be smiling.
    There were so many special moments. Two large butterflies kept circling Barb like tegu were vying for her attention. Then two more decided they needed to sit with her a while

    After that, a blue butterfly danced in front of me, stopped and landed in my lip – just for a minute. Each one of us was visited briefly by a pretty winged one.
    When it was time to leave, we joined hands and thanked the Creator for the beauty all around us, the friends whose hands we were holding, and the blessing of having our Beloved Friend in our lives. And we asked that her dance would be as graceful, free and happy as that of the butterflies.

    This was an awesome group of women who came here to lend love and support. What a blessing.

    The butterfly museum was a perfect way to celebrate the life of our dear friend. It cannot fail to fill you with wonder and inspire you with gratitude for all blessings received, the greatest one today being that we had the privilege of knowing this uniquely creative, giving, caring woman who affected us all with her joyful sense of humor. She faced her many challenges with courage and always kept her love for her family and friends secure in her heart. We truly will miss her.
    Huge thanks to Amalia and Leonard for allowing us to spend these last couple days with them, celebrating our good fortune to have known and been loved by this wonderful woman. It helped us all cope with our enormous loss. It also helped to have Callie the Great, Tupper & Gilly and Basil & Sage to be our therapy dogs and cats. With a special mention for Tyb, Loulou and Sammie as well. Dog bless us everyone

    I never exchanged a word on this page with Melanie, but I have read about and with all of you over the years. My heart goes out to you all as a tight knit community/family. In the community/family I am more openly active with (we love Yellowstone!) we have had two of these major losses. It is not easy even though we stick together and honor the ones who have gone on. Blessing to you. The major blessing of so many of you being together right now has happened. And who knew when you planned it that it would be so needed. And though I barely knew her I think Melanie had no fear. Never the less, I often quote the last stanza of a poem by Nancy Wood called A Change of Worlds. And here are the last few lines….

    Why fear this change of Worlds, my friend?
    Your courage travels with you.
    Your example is left behind
    So that others may know
    The sweetness of your time.

    I sent out messages from the hospital, but I don’t think any of them got out. The news we got today could not have come at a worse time. Rick has liver cancer. That is all we know right now. I am having trouble making sentences, but I wanted my Plunderer family to know, because I am going to need your collective strength. I will tell you more when I know more.
    Love you all

    Photo taken at 1:30 am. Still snowing like crazy. Time to put on my gear and start shoveling the deck. The driveway will have to wait until morning. At least I have groceries and don’t have to go anywhere.

    The Butterfly excursion sounds like a perfect observance and a reminder of all the lives that enrich our own (and that we have the capacity to enrich). Thank you for sharing the photos (and Rio’s insights).
    Macy’s Mom–Courage and love to you both. constant prayers and strength added–goes without saying. You are not alone.

    Great photo!

    I just got in from shoveling almost 2 hours. I measured 11″ when I started and it is still coming down. Doing the deck was so hard and I knew if I waited to do the driveway in the morning that it would defeat me and I’d be snowed in. The paper delivery person couldn’t believe it when she showed up at 3 am and drove into my driveway. She said things are bad and that the underlayer is melting and freezing causing ice to form along with the inches of snow. Fortunately, I don’t have plans to go anywhere tomorrow.

    The last time I shoveled, I couldn’t heave the snow on top of the high snow berms without it just avalanching down. So my driveway is getting narrower still. The next few days are to be cold and sunny so no melting in sight.

    Oodles of noodles for now. After the ice in my hair melts, I’ll go to bed.

    Good morning. We have not yet checked the GPS tracker, but we are thinking there are still two Sibe teams out with the remaining ones. Good news for them/bad news for The Giants is that the Awards Banquet is not until Sunday evening.
    Macy’s Mom, we are hoping and praying that this was caught early and that Rick and you will win. We are here for you.
    East Coast visitors, we are sorry you couldn’t get to see us us and our happy farm. That would have been grand.
    Hobbit! Perhaps the ‘rents should have stayed up there with you for the rest of the winter. Then the snow would have stayed away, or at least they could have helped shovel.
    Mom told us more snow for us tomorrow and Monday!

    Macy’ Mom, sometimes it seems like the world just caves in on you. But hopefully, this has been caught in the early stages and treatment will take care of it. It won’t be easy but each battle fought will give you and Rick more strength to continue the fight.

    Love to you and Rick.

    Macy’s Mom, it is very hard to read this news after losing Melanie. Strong prayers being sent to Rick that this was caught early, and he will kick that nasty cancer to the curb. My heart and prayers are with you all.

    CHobbit: Yikes!

    RIO! Thank you for sharing your road trip with us! The butterflies were lovely, and lots of great pictures too.

    Prayers go out to the mushers still on the trail.

    I love the picture of our Purple Princess that Rob posted. She looked like a young Dyan Cannon. Love you, Melanie.

    One group of Plunder P I G’s has left. One little tiny P I G left.
    We did have a wonderful time together. As was pointed out – laughter through tears ….

    We are saying prayers for all the mushing mushers, for AJ and Rebecca to get rested up and then get home, for our traveling friends to be safe on the highway and railway, and especially for Rick.

    Let’s all find something wonderful to think about today. And smile.

    The Plunderers are With You All the Way.

    C.Hobbit: Where oh Where was that Snow when we needed it!
    When you had Help On Paw.
    When the Iditarod was Racing Full Swing.

    ALR: Beautiful Words. Thank You for your post.

    To the Rookies still on the Iditarod Trail: God Speed.

    To the P.I.G.s Returning Home: Safe Travels.

  89. stem cells and cardiac disease where are we going

    Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired
    of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at
    options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
