Shayne's Bday and 7th Month Anniversary
One short year ago: Cousins! (in rare form that night!)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the World’s Greatest Dad and Husband! Last year Christi and I were not able to celebrate the day with Shayne, but at least we could talk by telephone. Not only is Shayne’s birthday today, but the 7th month anniversary of her death is also today. Some days it seems like she was just here yesterday, others it seems like she’s been gone for years. Regardless, we miss her terribly yet remind ourselves to be thankful that we were able to be her parents for nine wonderful years!
If you would like to attend Christi’s Tea Party on May 12th, we urge you to please get your tickets soon. There are only 40 tickets left. Since the country club cannot accommodate more than 140 people, we will not be able to get you in once the tickets are gone. Many sweet auction items have been lovingly donated. New donations: a wine basket from Ralph’s Kitchen, compliments of Myers & Kerschner Law Firm and Cincinnati Zoo tickets. Our deepest thanks to Columbus’s Costume Holiday House for lovingly donating all of the Alice in Wonderland costumes that our sweet COSI friends will be wearing as they walk around and mingle with the children! Thanks, friends!
Tomorrow afternoon will be the Heidelberg College Awards Ceremony. The two $1,000 Christi Thomas Memorial Scholarships will be announced at that time and will be awarded. I’ll then be able to let you know who the winners are! I’ll also share some parts of some of the touching applications.
Here’s wishing you and yours a great day! Rejoice!
One short year ago - Christi running, romping around (and crashing) at the Ronald McDonald House. Oh how I miss that incredible place where hope lives!
Miss you, sweet Jan!! Remember what a little stinker Christi was that night so happy to be with her cousin and feeling great?! I don't know how we talked her into slowing down to get this picture snapped! Thanks for sending these to me!
