Numb and Fun

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

We’re in Palm Springs – we had to get away for a few days and through the kindness of friends and strangers, we have had a great time together as a family. We only wanted to post a quick note since many are wondering how we’re doing and we’re not communicating much since we’re a […]

Scrapbooking help for Sam’s All-Star Party on April 3rd

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Quick funny story – two days ago, Andy and Charlie were playing Mario Tennis and Andy achieved a level he’d never reached – he yelled “I KNEW Sam would give me his powers! I just knew it!”.  Sam was a master at all videogames and we’re glad he’s channeling his skills to his younger brother. […]

Back to school….

A quick update since many are wondering how we are doing. Andy went back to school yesterday and was warmly received – he also got a report card and is doing 3rd grade math and 2nd grade reading and most of his scores were advanced so you can only imagine how tickled we are about […]

Because of Sam…

Because of Sam…. A friend of mine who lost a daughter to neuroblastoma almost three years ago told me there is not a “before Sam and after Sam”; he told me that there is a “before Sam and Because of Sam”. Well, this is a “Because of Sam” story. Almost two years ago, I was […]

Cheetahs that play soccer and more….

Saturday, March 20th, 2010

Wow. Sometimes we’re not sure where to start other than to exhale and say ‘wow. The boys are doing great – they are playing and running and having fun and Sam would have loved that. Margot and I are doing ok but ok has a different meaning now. We’re both reading books on God and […]

Though it was hard, yesterday was a good day.  It was a beautiful day and the service was lovely.  Thank you to all who came, we were overwhelmed with the turnout and it was a testament to how many lives our little boy touched.   Father Steven at St. Brigids was fantastic and his sermon was perfect.  […]

Surrounded by Love and Family

Friday, March 12th, 2010

Earlier this week, Jake, a dear friend of Andy’s told him that “you were my tutor in Four Square. He then asked, “who was your tutor?” Andy simply replied “Sam”. Our family and extended family and friends are together on a beautiful sunny San Diego day to help Sam with his journey. Our hero will […]
