For Henry

As you may or may not know this has been a tough week. My friend Sarah Anderson lost her son to a virus that he was unable to recover from. Her sweet little Henry passed away Monday November 2, 2009. He was just 3 years old.

Lorie Ames has organized a memorial to honor Henry with trees to be planted at the zoo where he loved to visit nearly everyday in the summer. There are a couple different ways to donate. You can donate directly to the city by printing this form and sending it in with a note that the donation is for Sarah's son Henry Anderson. Also Melissa at Pink Cat Studios has created this adorable digital stamp just for Henry. All the proceeds from the sales(minus paypal costs) will go towards the trees to be planted for Henry.

If you have any questions please let me know or contact Lorie directly.

Also, Kim at Crafts By Kim is offering some blog candy in Henry's name. Check her blog for details.

I know that little Henry is in heaven(where I'm sure there is the coolest zoo ever!) and he is no longer ill. I pray that Sarah knows that as well. Please pray for Sarah and her family. Pray that they will be comforted and that they might know how much they are loved.

Hug your loved ones a little longer today.
My love to you all.
