Finally, an update for all of you! I had planned to give a check to this family before Christmas. Due to various circumstances, I didn't see them until today. And was finally able to provide them with a check for $1030. Suffice it to say, there were tears all around. This is HUGE deal for this family. This ability to buy a headstone is a big step in their grieving process. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you to all of you who donated and sent good thoughts to this family. What a blessing it was to be able to hand over this check today. Thank you for entrusting me with your hard-earned money and for donating to a family you will never know. You are all incredible! :)
On a side note, this whole campaign has inspired a desire in me to start a foundation (or something) to help provide headstones for families who lose children. I have no idea how to even go about starting this, but if any of you reading this have some knowledge, I'd love if you could e-mail me at [email protected]
I feel strongly that this is the next step in this entire campaign.
Thank you again to all of you! You made such an enormous difference in the lives of this family! :)
