As you know George's 2nd birthday is coming up. It has been really hard and I have really been toying with what we as a family want to do. I know we will have cake for him but the boys want to have a party. After a conversation with them, they asked me if people will give George cards/presents. I tried to explain that you really don't do that for people in heaven. They still feel that George is getting the short end of the stick and feel it isn't fair! Great another thing I have to try and explain and find a way to work around. It would be a lot easier if they were a little older.
That being said they want to decorate and throw a party for their brother. We are all still doing the random acts of kindness but they want to see a tangible celebration of his life. I figured I would ask people to send cards or small gifts to add to George's mantle so he boys can throw their brother a party. If you are interested in helping us out by sending a card or something small we would really appreciate it. He was our little monkey so if you happen to find something with a monkey on it, that would be extra special. Handmade cards are great also. Mail things to: George Garman 7 Ellis Avenue Lumberton, NJ 08048 if you are willing to make these boys dreams of a party for their brother come to life. Thank you for finding it in your heart to do this.
