I always want to send a note...

I once read the that the death of your child makes you part of an exclusive club you never wanted to join with dues that you'll be paying everyday for the rest of your life. When I hear of someone who has entered our club it devastates me. While everyone has their own unique journey we all share the crushing grief and life time of loss stretching ahead of us. I've never met the Whitt family or their angel daughter Tuesday, but their journey has been inspiring and heart wrenching. Their virtual family is having a special event Saturday....here's how they describe it:


We would like to hold a virtual parade on Saturday, February 7th, for Tuesday (the same day her family is having a celebration of her life parade for family and friends). We want each and every one of you to stop what you're doing on Saturday and spend a little time with your kids on a bike ride or a wagon ride or a sled ride or a skateboarding cruise or a stroll in the park and to photograph it.

I hope you'll join us...can we ever make enough memories with our families? You can go here or here or here to read more about Tuesday. I'm sure there were plenty of her family waiting to greet her, but I like to think Nathan was there too offering to show her around...he's like that...always wanting to be the big brother and share his knowledge. I always wish I could send a note or a hug...I think he'd like a care package from home.

I think everytime your family laughs together, it is a care package from home.

Hi! Thank you so much for getting on board with the wagie ride parade. I was here yesterday doing some browsing around your site and you seem like an incredible family. I do not know your story but I see that you have also suffered this indescribable loss of a child. You are such a testament to positivity and life living from all that I read here. It feels so good knowing how many good-hearted people there are....

Hope to see you around...
