Seattle is still on.

Racheal’s hubby here again.  With the support of Tricia and Southwest willing to switch the airline reservation, Racheal will be represented at the convention next month.

I will be taking her place on the panel and hope I can hold my own.  I feel as though I knew Racheal well enough that I can express her opinions as well as my own.

I look forward to meeting everyone before and after the panel and hopefully it will be a good time even though there will be an air of sadness around it.

But I don’t want the whole panel to revolve around Racheal’s tragedy.  Yes, there is a time and place for talking about that at the convention, I’m sure.  But this panel has been in the works for many months before and I don’t think Racheal would want it turned on its head.

She would have never wanted that, even in life for something to be all about her.  Except our wedding. 🙂

This will be a time to celebrate Star Wars, female characters, and Racheal as well.  I’m just happy that I can fulfill this for her.  She never got excited about a lot of things in life, but she was truly excited about this trip.  I know she will be there with us all and hopefully when I don’t know what to say on the panel, she’ll be there to tell me to “Use the Force, Joao.”
