In Loving Memory of Henry Anderson...

>> Thursday, November 5, 2009

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!


There are companies in the stamping community joining to help honor her sweet little Henry.

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.
To contact Lorie, please visit her blog at

If you don’t know Sarah and would like to learn more about her, please visit her blog: http://scrampinmama.blogspot.com/

Thank you for your help to raise money for a tree for Henry.


Tomorrow at the Paper Makeup Stamps blog, we will release a digi in Henry's honor as well. This image will also be sold in rubber, but not until after the stamp release.
Here is a sneak peek of what will be released tomorrow from PMS for Henry...

EDITED TO ADD
the digital version is now available and the rubber version will be available on November 7th at 8pm! You can purchase it here



Other companies are jumping in (I Heart Papers, and LimeLight PaperCrafts). I will let you know as i find out of other companies.

As the mother of a 3-year-old myself I too am so terribly saddened by this tragedy. I cannot even imagine what Sarah and her family are going through. My heart aches for her. I absolutely love the image you are releasing in Henry's memory!
