So long and thanks for all the fish

We're doing ok. I mean, whatever that means right now. But you don't have to worry, is what I'm saying.

I wanted to say two things -

1) Thanks for all your kind thoughts and prayers and casseroles and making-room-in-your-hearts for us and for our dear son. Your words and presence have meant the world to us.

2) We are heading for the hills. If you know me, and you don't hear from me, we're ok. We're getting out of town for a couple weeks. It'll be good.

I'm glad you and Scott are getting out of town for awhile. I will be praying for pleasant weather for your trip - wherever you go. It was so very easy for all of us to make room in our hearts for you and Scott and your dear son.

Good for you...get away from everything for awhile. Do what you need to do to take care of you.

May you be blessed with peace and safe travel.

Sarah and Scott,

We are continuing to pray for healing. The moments you've shared about your lives the last few years have been such a blessing to us!

My heart has been touched by your family's path through such a sad place. You don't know me and I don't know you all, but your precious child has a piece of my heart. Blessings and peace during your grief.

You and I spoke about a year ago when my organization Heroes for Children worked with your family. While I followed your story then, I somehow lost touch with you all. Tonight, I ran into my old friend Kacie Tera at our childrens' school and she told me about Thomas' passing. I was profoundly said for you and your loss.

Next month will be four years since the passing of my daughter Allie. I miss her each and every day. I can't tell you it necessarily gets easier but you do learn to cope better. It's a roller coaster and there are both good and bad days. My second child Maggie was born 13 months after the death of her sister. She is now almost three and talks about Allie all the time. She knows that Allie was sick and understands that she is her sister that we love very much.

I will be thinking of your family. Good for you for getting away. Friends and family sent us on a trip and it helped us tremendously after her death.

If you ever need to connect with a mother that has lost a child to cancer, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sarah and Scott, I've followed your story via RLP. Please know how much you and Thomas have touched my heart. I will be thinking and praying for you... and sending you love.
