I had to share this story with you. You've all heard me talk about my youngest son, Ryan and his wife (my daughter-in-law) Heather...right?
I couldn't have been prouder of Heather than I was last night. She lost her beloved grandmother, Charlotte, to a form of blood cancer in the spring. Heather and her grandmother were more than close, they were soul mates.
tell you how Heather turned her grief and sadness into something
Heather got busy. Somehow, as young as she is, Heather realized that when you do something
to help someone else, no matter how big or small the act, you feel
She recruited lots of her family and friends to participate in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk-A-Thon. Heather called her team, "TEAM CHAR."
And, yes, next year we'll walk again. Maddie and Annabelle will be carrying balloons too. The memories of those loved ones lost will once again light the night. Heather's goal is to double the money we raised this year. My guess is that we will.
