As we were rounding out Rory’s Bags of Love with food items, we decided we wanted to include a couple of Rory’s favorites.
Goldfish and fruit snacks were pretty much on her daily diet.
The week before she passed away, she came home excited that someone at her school traded fruit snacks with her.
She got one that was purple!
Her next question was, “Will you get me some?”
She even saved the wrapper to show me!
That night after I dropped her off at karate, I went to Target and got her a big package of purple fruit snacks.
She ate a few of them but the package sat in the pantry uneaten for a long time. Each time I looked in the pantry I was reminded of her excitement and love until the boys slowly ate them.
Now we get to share that love and excitement with a lot of kids.
