Grayson's Gift

On Saturday December 9th 2006 at 6:00pm my family and I will host a Christmas party in honor of my son Grayson's first angel day. The party will be a fundraiser for the PF. We'll have food and drinks and music and all that great stuff we all love so much about parties. We will hold a silent auction with different items donated by local businesses, friends, and family. We are also including baked goods in the auction. (the idea there is that you not only get the scrumptious dessert but also the fabulous dish that it is displayed on or in!)
We invite anyone that wants to share in our event to do so whether it be in person or in spirit! I'm really excited! This seemed to be the only way I could get through this first anniversary. I figured "throw a party! make something good come out of this pain! I hope he is proud. We miss him so much and wanted to honor him on his birthday.
If you would like any additional info about the party feel free to email me!

I am so sorry for your loss and so moved by your wonderful way to remember Grayson. I love the name "Grayson's Gift"...it sounds like a novel. Maybe because my last name is Garrett--I just love names that begin with G. Thanks for sharing such a gift with us.
