Yesterday, Lee and Em hosted a virtual "Wagie Ride" to honor the memory of Tuesday Whitt...what an AMAZING idea.
Where we didn't have a wagon, we took the opportunity to spend time with the kids, walking, playing, and despite their screaming and complaining, simply loving them. We went to a place called the "Kid's Kastle", that is covered in memories, and tributes, and donor plaques...the place just oozes with sentiment. And I took the opportunity to think more about Tuesday Whitt, as well as the many kids every year who live with, and die from this terrible disease.
And despite the sad thoughts, I also got excited again, at the thought of raising money, shaving my head again, and helping these kids. Once again I thank you for your donations, big and small, and I ask that those of you who have not donated to the cause please consider it. You have the ability to help some of these kids...even a small donation adds to reaching a cure.

posthumous pointerTo laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - this is to have succeeded. - Emerson
