It is getting more difficult as the Holidays are approaching. Rex Allen Days in Willcox was really difficult. When the annual event is over, you know that the Holidays are coming soon. I am reacting with panic attacks and random bouts of crying. Halloween at the end of the month. It is so unbelievable that it was one year ago and you dressed as Alice in Wonderland. Everyone who saw you told me that you were the perfect…Continue

The Rex Allen Days Committee is dedicating the Rex Allen Days Parade to my little sister, Sarah Broeder. Sarah's favorite color was blue. So, I had this idea that on the day of the parade, people could wear blue to show her that they're thinking about her. It could be something as simple as a blue shirt. But I understand that some people who are in the parade have very strict dress codes, so I have in my possession, beautiful blue ribbons that people marching in the parade can wear on their…Continue

(I am posting this especially for our out-of-town family and friends who may not get to see the 2011 Rex Allen Days Program, which was distributed in Willcox this week. Words cannot express our gratitude to the Rex Allen Days, Inc. Board for doing this.)
From "Welcome by Michelle Mullins, RAD President, page 5 of the Rex Allen Days program:
"The Rex Allen Days Inc. Board would like to dedicate Rex Allen Days 2011 to Earl Moser and Sarah Broeder. Throughout…

Yes, faith is a goodly anchor;
When skies are sweet as a psalm,
At the bows it lolls so stalwart,
In bluff, broad-shouldered calm.
And when over breakers to leeward
The tattered surges are hurled,
It may keep our head to the tempest,
With its grip on the base of the world.
But, after the shipwreck, tell me

Sarah Rose Catherine Broeder passed away one month ago today. It is still to unbelievable to us. This is a poem I post today in memory of her. Thanks to the Hirshouers for sharing it with us.
I've lost my baby daughter,
Though not misplaced.
I feel she's somewhere
Bound by neither time nor space.
Perhaps she sits before the Throne

One of Sarah’s goals for her future was to study to become a labor and delivery nurse. The NCCH Auxiliary Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to Willcox students who plan to enter the healthcare field after high school. There is a collection jar in the Gift Shop or checks can be…Continue

The spotlight brightens,
The music begins
I'm up on my toes
as I twirl and spin
I jump and I leap
From one side to another
feeling just the music
never any other.
I raise up in pointe
then down in plie
performing what I've practiced
for so long every day.
To dance is my dream,
I can't let it…
