A Day of Remembrance


I hope to be back on Tuesday with a card and maybe an announcement of a new business venture, but for now my goal is just to survive tomorrow.   January 14, 2009 was the last day that I got to hold my sweet Eli.   At at little after 7pm that night he took his last breath in my arms.  I'll never forget that moment.  If you haven't heard about SMA, I would love for you to take a few minutes today to learn about it.
