Awarded 2000.00 grant to help Ms Briggs-Gee. Ms Briggs-Gee was being harrassed by bill collectors after the death of her mother from Cancer.
As we all know March 16th will mark the 1 year anniversary of when my beautiful Sarah
passed on to a better place.
I would really love to have a pot luck get together in her honor.
All friends and family are welcomed. This event will help raise money towards the
Sarah's Joy Foundation. $10.00 would be an appreciated donation.
We will also have raffles and a open mic for people if you would like to share moments
you had with Sarah.
She is loved and dearly missed.
Since nothing you receive makes you happy, you will go back to having nothing at all!)

It seems everyone feels the need to make New Year resolutions that we all know very rarely get followed through to fruition.
We all want deep down inside to be more productive, more successful, healthier, richer etc., but ultimately our humanness gets in the way and we fall short of our deepest desires.
Our official non profit status paperwork is on its way and we should have it by Tuesday! With that said we will be announcing our first official fundraiser in a bit!! So hope you all are as excited as we are to take this next step on this journey to honor Sarah's memory and to make sure that her belief that something good and everlasting would come out of her struggle with this illness, becomes a reality! Also if any one of her friends would be interested in being an admin on the Sarah's Joy Foundation fan page please let us know, as we need all the help we can, to spread the word!
When you lose a loved one to a disease everyone thinks of the bigger picture, as far as that loss is concerned. We thing of the loss of a second income, the handling of daily chores, paying the bills, food shopping, doctors appointments, car pooling kids etc. while in reality these are a big part of the loss, I've noticed its the little things that are missed the most.
When my daughter-in-law Sarah passed away in March, I had a calendar on my home office desk. Four months later when I was packing my house to put everything in storage, so I could move to another state to help my son out with the kids, I noticed my calendar.
