Yesterday I posted a tribute to a dad (Randy Pausch). Today I am sad to post a tribute to a very special child, Evan and his special mother Vicki. Evan passed away on July 24, I first found out about it from my blogger friend Akemi who also reads Vicki’s blog "Speak Softly".
Vicki was recently at BlogHer and spoke on a panel on blogging about children with special needs. I know some of the other speakers on this panel and they are all AMAZING moms who share such important stories. Here is one sentence from one of her posts that tells it all:
Vicki also contributed to an anthology that has creative writing pieces from mothers who have children with special needs called "Love You To Pieces".
This is also a tribute to the blogosphere which has become not only a place to share the grief of those who have lost loved ones, but also a way to share the inspirational stories that help their memories live on….
