A hard post to write

For those of you who haven’t heard, Nicholas Thornton passed away on February 21st. It’s taken me some time to be able to post this and I wanted to include what his Mother, Nancy, recently posted.

“Dear old friends, new friends and friends we have yet to meet,
Let me share words that were spoken at his funeral: We have lost love ones and felt that world should know what it has lost. We don’t feel that way with Nicholas. Because of all of you, the world did know him. When I asked for birthday cards, they came from 18 different states. But, when we reached out for prayer, you didn’t just pray, you called on family, friends, and neighbors all over the state, the country, and the world. I know there were three churches in Haiti praying from Nicholas, as well as countries in South America and China that I know of. Because of you the world did know Nicholas.
Thank you traveling this journey with us.”

Fundraising is continuing because we all know the aftermath of such a long medical battle. I still have a few packs of cards left and there are still some at Amy Temple DDS and Framed Impressions (as well as the mugs Tricia made).

Nancy and Jon, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. This weekend, Arden and I enjoyed remembering Nicholas as a toddler playing during Arden’s tutoring sessions and those blond curls.
