Yesterday was a tough day. I found out that a stamping friend, Sarah Anderson (you may know her, or have seen her blog in my blogroll) lost her 3 year old on Monday. It was a sudden illness that only came up on Friday. They still are unsure of what happened. Now Sarah is just one of those "online stamping friends" our husbands tease us about. I have never met her, or her children. But the mere thought of what she must be going thru has just really bogged me down. With a 3 year old and a 1 year old myself, it just hits too close to home. She could use all the support and prayers out there right now!
Lorie Ames has organized a way to donate for a memorial for Henry. Henry loved his local zoo and visited it almost every day in the summer. As a memorial, trees will be planted there in his honor. Melissa at Pink Cat Studio has created a digital stamp to help raise funds for a tree for Henry. All proceeds from the sale of the digi stamp, minus Paypal costs, will go towards the tree. If you would like to donate towards the tree, please visit this webpage to purchase the digi stamp:http://www.pinkcatstudio.com/Digital/DigiStamps/Animals/Zoo/GiraffeAndMonkey.htm
Another way to donate to the memorial is to print out this form and mail in your donation directly:http://www.ci.oshkosh.wi.us/Parks/PDF/MemorialTreePamphlet.pdf
Please write on the form that the donation is for Sarah Anderson’s son Henry. Once all of the money is collected, a tree and location will be selected. If you have questions about the form please contact Lorie Ames. Lorie will be in contact with Sarah along this memorial journey to ensure that her wishes are followed.
