Charlie's birthday

Hello everyone.  Tomarrow is Charlie's first birthday.  We are working on getting his headstone done.  It will hopefully be in place next week.  We also sent our donation to intermountain healing hearts.  If anyone would like to make a contribution in memory of charlie you can do so by going to intermountainhealinghearts.org and clicking on donation.  I know I mentioned a donation before by mail, but I wanted to tell you about the online option since, for most people, it is easier.  Seth is out of town, so we will probably visit the cemetary as a family when he gets back, and the stone will hopefully be in place.
thanks.

I can't believe that it's been that long since we were in the hospital room next to you. That was when we went in the second time for heart failure. I hope that you had a wonderful day remembering your sweet little boy. Thank you for your friendship at that dark time. I hope that you know you are in my thought and prayers.

Shannon,

I don't know if you remember me or not, but I definitely remember you. I heard about your sweet Charlie, and I am so sorry. I just lost my husband to a rare disease on Sept. 14. I know it is not the same as losing a child, but I want you to know that I am just so so sorry. If there is anything-anything at all- that I could do for you and your family, please let me know. jebandbrittany.blogspot.com

Shannon, Thank you for writing me. I think of you and Charlie often. I can't explain it but he meant a lot to me. I guess it was just that I saw many similarities between him and Jonas. I am sorry for your loss however, I was at work when I found out and literally spent five minutes in the storage room sobbing. He is such beautiful boy and has a wonderful family too. Take care and thank you for writing us.

Shannon, I hope his birthday was a day of reflection and peace. I just wanted to pass on my condolences. I was in shock when I heard about his passing from Makayle. She said that your family was strong and doing well. I have thought so much about you and glad I found your sight. My baby is still waiting for a liver, we have been in 2nd place many times but we still don't have one, so we just wait sometimes at home and sometimes in the hospital. I cherish the days we spent together, hospital visits are so much better with a friend. Have you heard of Hope Kids? It is a group that makes activities every month for families with sick children and for family members of those whose baby has passed on. My family has participated in the activities the last few months, it has been a great release for us. Their website is Hopekids.org. Check it out if you think it might be something you're interested in. Do you remember the woman we met in the play room that had the same condition your baby had? She was waiting for a heart transplant? Well she is a member of Hope Kids and I met her last Saturday, her son received his heart after living at the hospital for seven months.
Take care, my thoughts are with you, I know he is close by bringing many blessings to your family.
Cheers, Tresta Neil
