Day of Forgiveness

It's been two years since this sweet angel left us. Today her parents have called for a "Day of Forgiveness" in her memory. We miss her so much and our hearts ache that she isn't here, but we know that we can channel our grief into goodness, and we hope you will join us.

We spent a bit of time with Laura and her family at Mikkie's grave to talk about and remember her. Laura's mom provided white balloons and we all let one go as part of the Day of Forgiveness. Laura's dad played a neat song and her sister gave each of the kids a baggie of things that Mikkie loved... bubble gum, lip gloss, and bubbles. We were honored to be a part of this special remembrance for Mikayla and love her family so much. We are aware that we don't always say and do the right things, but we hope that Tim and Laura know how much we love them and want to support them.
