a celebration of life

The support that Stu and I have received over the past 11 months has been truly wonderful. Thank you. Thank you for praying for us, calling, e-mailing, checking on us. We appreciate it. More than you could know.

On April 9, 2009, our world collapsed. Michael was our lives. Our greatest joy. And in an instant, he was gone.

And so ... it is our hope to continue to celebrate the great joy that Michael was to us. To you. To the people that he knew. We would like to invite you to join us on April 10, 2010, at Tekesta Park in Tallahassee from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Bring a snack to share. Bring a lawn chair. There is a playground and open fields to run and play in. We'll have a balloon release - and papers to fill out messages to put into the balloons.

We will celebrate the life of Michael.
Join us! I would love to meet some of you!

Jenn,
I am SO glad that you posted this. I have already put it on our calendar. I will bring Greg Haggerty and our family to help you and Stu (and Greg) celebrate and remember Michael. I would also like to give him the option to visit his grave site, would you mind sharing with me where he was buried?

I would also love to help out with this event, if there is anything at all, big or small that I can do to help, please let me know!! I do not work, so my schedule/time is very flexible...

We love you, and you & Stu our in my thoughts and prayers.

Hey Jenn.

I don't comment much, I know, but I still follow up on how you are and am so proud to know you as I read your blog. Thanks for inspiring all of us. We will release our own balloon for Michael here in Memphis on April 10th.

I love you and miss you, BFF.
