Up, up and away
Once again I was moved by the power of Scrapshare. Last week one of our friends lost her son. Danny was only 5 years old. He had a tumor on his brain stem and slipped into a coma after emergency surgery.
This weekend at the Scrapshare Ohio retreat we each released a red balloon in Danny's honor. Why red? Red was his favorite color.
We planned to coordinate our balloon release with the girls at the Scrapshare North California retreat on Saturday. We gathered outside and said a prayer for Danny and his family and let our balloons go.
Danny's services were Monday and many of us around the world wore red in memory of a sweet boy many of us never met. Danny will continue to live on as we know of 4 recipients of his organs that were donated.
