Our Rainbow connection…. We are grateful for rainbows, we are grateful for the photos that keep Diane’s beauty alive in our eyes and above all we are grateful for our family and friends AND The Children’s Room for helping us learn to live each day to the fullest, to help us get through some challenging days and most of all for helping us to keep Diane’s memory alive. For all of us (family and friends), rainbows have become our message of love sent from Diane.
As the poem, “Look for Me in Rainbows,” says:
… Look for me in rainbows shining in the sky.
Every waking moment and all your whole life through
Just look for me and love me as you know I loved you.
Just wish me to be near you, And I'll be there with you.
We would not be where we are today without the love and support of our family and friends along with the love and support of our Children’s Room Family.
3rd Time’s the Charm…
Truth be told, I did not imagine last April when I finished the Boston Marathon that I would be running the Boston Marathon at 3rd time for the Children’s Room. When Maeve and Luisa heard that I was thinking about it, they both said, “Dad, YOU HAVE TO RUN! We love the Children’s room and want you run for them again!” So here I am…once again asking for your support for an organization that has saved us. We all lose loved ones and what we (Me, Maeve and Luisa) have come to know is that it is okay to be sad and it is okay to be happy. We miss Diane, we love Diane…it’s that simple.
What your gift will mean…
By supporting my run, you will be supporting my family and so many others who receive support from the Children’s room. The Children’s room creates a safe and supportive community for children and their family’s. They believe that no child has to grieve alone. The Children’s room services are free of charge and they rely on generous donations such as yours in order to do so. Some of the programs they provide are peer support groups at their Arlington location and in the Greater Boston Area. They also hold Parenting while Grieving Education Series, a Monthly Family Night arts-based program, teen programming, adult consultations, as well as information and referrals to families and professionals looking for additional grief-related services in their area.
