Remembering Lucy five years after she passed away, Tessa and I took some items to donate to, what Tess calls, "My hospital." (Tessa was sick after her birth with the Group B Strep virus and spent a week in a NICU about 50 miles from the hospital where her cousin, Lucy, would live and die the following year.) Here are some pictures of our afternoon:
Tess, walking in the front doors swinging the bag of
knitted and crocheted bereavement items.
she was amazed to see the doors open automatically
(you'd think the girl'd never been to a grocery store!)
after dropping off our donation,
we headed to the cafeteria to get an ice cream cone.
or cookies n cream, she finally chose the latter.
I had her pose in front of the pond where I ate lunch
nearly every day she was a patient at McKay-Dee.
Mmmm! That was good!you can read about Lucy on A Tree For Lucy. You can also donate to an amazing cause, helping sick children and their families (read about it here).
