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.

Stockings for the Homeless

I know I posted before about the stocking project we are doing in George's memory. I have completed 83 stockings thus far. The boys and I will create small Christmas tree ornaments to add so they have their own little tree for the holidays. We want to fill each stocking with:

set of gloves
pair of socks
granola bar
candy of some sort
small precooked meal(hormel makes a small meal or there are small containers of spaghetti o's)

These items are not expensive but if I were to do it myself for 100 it would just be impossible. I have been able to collect some of the toiletries for free from several people. I've come up with a great idea and hope that people really find it in their heart to help us make this happen and also to just give a little bit of Christmas to a homeless person.

$5 will sponsor the cost of a stocking and it's contents
You can also purchase any of the items above and have them sent to me or I can pick up locally.

If you choose to sponsor one in honor or memory of someone I would like to place a card in the stockings giving some information about the person and what they mean to you. This will give the people a sense that someone cares enough to think of them and also gives them some insight to the individual who cared enough to give them a Christmas. I really hope we can get all the stockings sponsored.

On the right side of this page is a listing for our pay pal account. There is nothing in it currently but we want to use it to collect the money to sponsor a stocking. If you sponsor through pay pal please don't hesitate to email me or leave a message with the information on your loved one you would like to share with those less fortunate. Please help our family in this endeavor.

Email your personalized information about your loved one for the card that will be placed in the stockings.
