Happy Birthday (Part 2)

Today is Rory’s birthday. My hope was a day filled with love, service, and family.

That’s what we got.

We have felt so much love from all of you. Thank you for helping us with the service project. Thank you for sending texts, messages, and comments. We read each one and they mean so much to us. Thank you doesn’t quite reach how much your thoughts and prayers mean to us.

The humane society was thrilled with the donations. The service project was a brain saver for me as January kept pressing me into the ground.

We spent the day doing fun things with the boys. We created “Kid’s Day” for them in memory of Rory. We want it to be a tradition that lasts the years. Our hope is that when the boys have babies they can tell them Kid’s Day is in honor of Aunt Rory. Their Aunt that they won’t know in this life. But was here. And was amazing.

Our hope is that one day a year will always be dedicated to Rory.

To service.

To love.

And to family.

Rory would love that.

  1. Kids day is a great idea! My sister in law did the same thing to remember her brother who passed away unexpectedly. We have joined in on celebrating Kids Day with them and my kids think it’s only fair—mothers day, Father’s Day, kids day!
