Shortly after I posted the last update, I finally figured a way to still include George at Christmas this year! We are going to place a 3' Christmas tree on the mantle where his urn is. What we are going to do is ask people to send/make/buy a Christmas ornament/decoration of some sort. We will wrap them if they do not come wrapped and place them under his tree. Christmas day the children will be able to open George's "gifts" and decorate his tree/mantel! That will then give us ornaments/decorations for future years for his tree and allow us to still include him. Now I am kind of excited about it all.
The boys love decorations of any kind and for them to be able to open gifts and decorate will be such an awesome way to include their brother in heaven. If you would like to help us with this please feel free to do so. We also still have the paypal account set up and if you are just not sure what to get or don't want to duplicate you can just add to the account and we will be sure to get/order one and put your name on the gift once it comes in! If you think about it please find a place on the ornament/decoration if possible and put your name somewhere on it so as the years go by we can remember who helped us to remember him and make our first Christmas without him here on Earth special:o) Thank You in advance to anyone who would like to help out in this manner!
George's Guardian's of Grace Projects
Stocking project is now in full force collecting donations. We have a list of the items we can use. You can also choose to sponsor a stocking in memory or honor of someone else. We will include a paragraph or two in the cards we place in the stockings to let the recipient know about the person that means so much to you. Our paypal account is posted on this page and ready to take donations. Email us for a list of items needed or with any questions or information you would like included on a sponsored stocking/donation.
