It may be unfounded, but my biggest fear is that Sofia will be forgotten.
I can’t bear the thought that in 10 years, she will just be a distant memory.
How can I even begin to have this conversation?
The last few days have been pure family time, and the boys and husband and I have hardly been out of one another’s site. March 24th would have been Sofia’s 10th birthday. It was a tough day, but we managed to make it through by being together… That’s really all we could do.
We have a few things already in the works – prompted and lead by others. There will be a new playground bench dedicated in her name at St Helen this spring. And a walk/run event sometime in the fall.
Our local neighborhood park is being rebuilt, and I have asked that a brick from the old building be inscribed and installed in the new building. She and her brothers spent a lot of happy times there.
We’re also researching starting a non-profit with donations going to a to-be-determined charity or charities. I don’t believe we’ll start something new, because there are so many groups doing great things that need support already.
Any ideas let me know.
