Our youngest son and brother Harry tragically passed away this past summer aged just 8 years old. He was an amazing boy who brought untold joy to our family and we miss him terribly.
As a family we have found a resource to help us through this very difficult time. We stumbled across The CHildren's Room who provide an amazing service for families in our situation where you can simply go to talk or hang out. Charlie and Ellen, our tennagers, attend a weekly teen group and they find it very useful. Joe our 11 year old attends every second Sunday with all of us.
The CHildren's Room is a non profit organization totally funded independently. The Boston Marathon team is an important part if their annual fund raising program and I was delighted to volunteer and help in any way I can.
Our family and friends have been a great support for us, but many have asked how they can help further. Contributing to this campaign is the best one I can think of. Sincere thank you from Paudie, Laura, Ellen, Charlie and Joe.
