BlissStock 2018 Come for the music, stay for the cause. Help Bliss Heal and enjoy some fantastic live music, family fun, and much, much more!!!

In October of 2017, our friend Bliss was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer with 5 tumors on her breast and 2 on her liver. At only 37 years of age, Mayo Clinic in Rochester gave Bliss only a 10% survival beyond 5 years. Bliss and her husband Josh have two young children, Ella and Lincoln, ages 5 and 3. This festival will celebrate Bliss and love; helping her raise money to kick cancer. Enjoy live music from noon to eight, a live and silent auction, games for the kids including face painting and balloon animals, and much more to be announced so stay tuned!!!

Just a quick update, The family is requesting that in lieu of flowers, money donations or gifts be made which will go towards Eleanor and Lincoln's education scholarship fund. If you are unable to make it to the celebration on Sunday or the service on Monday and would still like to donate to the family there is a trust for the family at Southpoint Federal Credit Union. You can mail or drop off your donation at ANY of their locations. Simply make the check out to "BlissStock." The trust is set up to care for the family and assist in things like school, daycare, medical expenses that will arise. Thank you.

12/06/2019

It is with an incredibly heavy heart that I compose this message. Yesterday morning, our Bliss’s spirit wrested itself from her earthly body and escaped this life to join her mother. I apologize if you are first hearing this news via social media. However, in her short lifetime, Bliss touched so many lives that this is the most efficient medium of communication.
If you are reading this, Bliss has touched your life in some meaningful way. At some point, she made you feel special; she inspired you to never give up, and she almost certainly made you laugh. Since we all gathered together at BlissStock my thoughts take me back there from time to time. The festival was a pure manifestation of her spirit: Dancing, laughing, joy and love. I am reminded of the person she was when she addressed everyone there and told us all that she was Blissed, despite her diagnosis, by the outpouring of love and support from her community. We all know that SHE was the reason for that love and support because she would have done the same for any of us in her position.
For anyone that has ever met her, the world stopped making sense the moment we learned of her diagnosis. We likely wrestled with why some who is so full of joy could be stricken with a disease whose sole purpose is to slowly drain the joy, hope and life from our earthly bodies. Despite this, Bliss never gave up hope and she never stopped serving others. She never complained or cursed her lot in life.
It is hard to put into words the hurt this community feels and the hole that has been left with her passing. It brings some peace knowing that she and her mother are now walking barefoot hand-in-hand. When the hurt becomes unbearable, I am reminded of a Buddhist proverb which states (loosely) :
“When I was born, the world rejoiced, but I cried. When I died, the world cried, but I rejoiced.”
There will be a celebration of her life, not unlike BlissStock, on Sunday December 8 from 2-6 at the New Ulm Event center (301 20th S. St. New Ulm MN). We think Bliss would have wanted a celebration with lots of music and laughter so feel free to wear bright colors in her honor. The Funeral will be Monday, December 9 at 11:00 at St. Paul’s church (201 N. State St. New Ulm, MN 56073) with final visitation starting at 10:00 a.m. Lunch will be immediately after the service at the Event Center as well.
Please come and share a story about Bliss and laugh with the countless people that loved her.
The family will be setting up a go fund me page to help offset some of the funeral expenses. Once complete, it will be shared on this page.
Thank you so much again for everyone who made BlissStock possible. The joy of that day seems a lifetime ago. I hope the memory of her laughter and dancing with her father, children, and family provides even a brief oasis from the pain of losing her in this life.
Be good to one another. Bliss would have wanted that.
