Today would have been Ty's 11th birthday. His mom, Rebekah knew that is was going to be such a hard day and wanted to celebrate instead of be so heart sad. When he died, their neighborhood all got together and donated money for a memorial area in little park in their subdivision. They planted a tree, got a cool wraught iron bench, and a little plaque memorial stone. Today was the day they set the stone and kindof dedicataed the area " Ty's Memory Corner". We all gathered to remember what a great kid he was... we had birthday cake and even sang happy birthday as all the friends sent red helium balloons to Ty in Heaven. His mom put together a little DVD of the slide show that was played at the viewing... and then just found some new homevideos of him singing and dancing to this crazy song. How fun it was to watch. We really miss him and with school starting tomorrow, I think the kids were thinking about him, but just didn't know what to say or how to say it. This little celebration of Ty was a great way to continue the healing process. I am glad that Rebekah gathered us all together to think of him and remember how special he was to all of us. It was a really great day!
