remembering tuesday and aiden


you can read tuesday's story here, and you can read aiden's story here.
my family honoured these angels this [waitangi] weekend.
i took a moment to talk to the girls about tuesday and aiden.
i asked them to imagine the heartache their families are experiencing right now
then i asked them to feel grateful for their sisters, their family, their lives.
the girls then rode to honour tuesday.
oriental parade. on a finei day, it's teeming with families, scooters, rollerblades and bikes

Wow! What a wonderful post. I just recently learned about sweet Aidan.

The heartache.

Thanks to you and your family for coming along for the fun!

This is beautiful. I am a family friend of the Whitt's, and I am making a video scrapbook for them to see all the wagie rides and balloon releases. I would love to add your pictures to it

Thanks for the reminder about Aiden, too - we're going to be releasing balloons for his memory on the 11th. You guys did a wonderful thing! :)

Thank you very much for posting about Tuesday. I was able to celebrate Tuesday's life with the family in CO and I know they are blown away by all of the love and support.
Thank you!

What a wonderful tribute!! We were all really sick at the time and couldn't do the balloon tribute. These are wonderful pictures and I'm sure Cynthia really appreciated it.
