George Charles Garman 09/09/09 to 01/29/10

January 29, 2010 our world was turned upside down when our 4 month old little boy earned his wings after a battle with Mitochondrial Disease and awoke in the Lords loving arms.

"Life can not be measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away."

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.

Acts of Kindness

If you have chosen to participate in our acts of kindness for George please leave a comment below with what you have done. Or drop us a line letting us know how our little monkey touched your life along with where in the world you happen to reside. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for supporting our efforts and remembering our little boy this way!

Our family chose to honor one of Richard's teachers and a colleague of my sisters. This man went out of his way to be there for our family in so many ways. The day George died, he was one of the first people at our house. He brought the very first monkey which I cherish and now resides in a special box. This man showed so much compassion and love for our family that I could not think of a better person to show kindness. I opted to send an edible arrangement to the school where he works in George's memory. He still to this day checks in on our family and Richard is no longer even in the same school anymore.

Please don't hesitate to leave us you acts of kindness and we look forward to hearing about them.
