After Rory’s death, we were quickly confronted with what to do on her birthday.
How do we celebrate Rory, without her?
We did a service project with help from family and friends and donated toys to Primary Children’s Hospital.
Then we also got each of the boys a present and said, “Happy Kid’s Day!”
Our day hasn’t changed much from that first year.
We do some sort of service and we celebrate Kid’s Day.
We wanted activities we could continue to do as the boys grew up, moved away, and had kids of their own.
Our hope is that someday as we celebrate Kid’s Day with our boys’ children, we can say,
“This is in honor of your Aunt Rory. She was a pretty dang awesome girl! Let me tell you a story about her.”
