LIVING HOPE

LIVING HOPE 

Could you see the life in her...
As she danced to the beat of the band?
Did you see the fringe of her moccasins
Waving wildly as she moved?

Could you see me beam...
As she smiled at me?
Did you look into her eyes...
tranquil as a turquoise sea?

Did you see the  light 
Shining through her?

The life inside her is growing...
Loving being free.


You should have learned a lesson,
If you saw her last night at all...
She laughed 
She danced
She smiled
Everything to live for
Not a complaint at all





Thank you so much for everyone who came out and supported our family last night.  Most of you were strangers, and we are so thankful for your love and support.  Thanks too for all who helped organize, cook, set-up, serve, and the businesses and people who donated baskets, supplies, gift cards and food!

We especially want to thank Alison & Joe Dittmar, Sue & Ken McDermott, Laura & Alex Kozdra, Sandy Nulf & Brendan mcDermott, Ellen Nulf, Jadwega Healy & Dot Dittmar for helping organize and run the night.

The Other Brothers band- you rocked, seriously, you are great!  Caitlyn Landis, you are so talented and the cake was awesome- just perfect!  Danielle De'Ellia- you made an awesome flyer & Tickets- THANKS SO MUCH!!!



It was wonderful to see old friends, and family that had never even met Calli...and it was good to see family and friends who have!
