"who will stay is the third book and final chapter in a series of narratives which attempt to reconcile loss while tracing back to celebrate a family life graced by unmistakable beauty.
"we had a remarkable sunrise, a 'bluebird morning' common to late summer, as light cuts and bends through canyons-a shadow line retracts across the valley drawing towards the sapphire mountains to the east. it is a dream and a forgetting. a dozen or so friends and fellow churchgoers gather near the bank of the bitterroot river to witness. you lay back into the arms of the pastor and disappear under the current and I wonder if others are recalling the young Bryson girl who drowned a year previous near this bend in the river. if a river can at once flow in two directions- perhaps this might offer some explanation for where you were standing, a gentle cross-current might have eased your spirit north and mine, south? you re-surface, bearing an expression I’d seen just a few times previous, primarily in snapshot photos of you as a young girl seated on your fathers lap. it’s an expression you’ve not offered me and one I’ve not noticed since."--Raymond Meeks
