Losing a loved one is one of the hardest obstacles in life. Laney was full of positivity and took care of everyone around her. I’d like to help spread her compassion by showing our love for Kirk, her loving husband, and taking care of him just as she would. As the days and months go on since her passing, I’m sure he will miss her more than any of us can imagine.
For the next months, I’d like to send dad one meal a week (mom did most of the cooking) with a positive note (a quick hello, a favorite memory, an inspirational quote, etc) to remind him that him and mom are constantly thought of by their loved ones. I’d love for their friends and families to each pick a week to send him some positive energy. I know a lot of people live out of state so this could be anything from a home cooked meal, to a gift card, to a restaurant in town, to take out delivered to the door, to asking him out to dinner - whatever feels right to you. You could pick a date that means something to you or a type of food that brings back a memory, etc. He loves all food and has no allergies :)
For anyone who would like to participate, there is a signup sheet here. Don’t feel obligated to do this but if you’d like to please reach out with questions, comments, etc, I’d be happy to make suggestions or help in any way. My number is 814-777-7872 and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to pass on to anyone I might have forgotten (I don’t have many emails of their friends), or to anyone you think would like to participate whether they knew mom and dad or not. I’ll send an email the week before your turn as a reminder and to coordinate addresses or delivery. Thank you all in advance, I know dad needs some extra love right now and will really appreciate some good food and kind words.
