The information below is from a "kindness event" I've created on Facebook in honor of my son.  I'd love to have you join us.



This kindness event is open to everyone and it is my hope that it will spread locally and globally. Please feel free to invite your friends, family and co-workers to join as well.

SIx years ago I lost my oldest son in a traffic accident on December 28th. Sean was on his way home from work when he drifted onto the soft shoulder of the highway, then overcorrected directly into oncoming traffic. He was killed instantly at the tender age of 22 years, 18 days. With his death my world forever changed. Since then, December has been a month that I literally dread. It's become something to simply survive. I believe it's time to change that.

The holidays add extra challenges for those that have lost loved ones - regardless of what month their loss occurred. The empty place at the holiday table is only one reminder that someone is missing. One of the fears those of us that have lost someone live with is that somehow the memory of our loved one will also eventually disappear. This event is a way to keep their memory very much alive and in the present.

During the month of December please join me in doing unexpected acts of kindness in honor of our loved ones. Bring your angel to the present by doing something kind and unexpected this month in their honor. And when given the opportunity to be acknowledged for this kindness, simply leave a beautiful red heart with the first initial of your angel as your signature.

Bring your loved one into the present with an act of kindness. I can think of no better way to honor them.

Please come back and share your experiences here. I'd love to hear all about them!

Sending Peace....

Sean's Mom
