It was a beautiful day on Saturday for our 2013 Holly Hoop. It was unusually sunny and warm, and the leaves were their beautiful bright fall colors. We had so many wonderful friends and family come out to support us and the Jones family. Thank you thank you thank you thank you for your time and your love.
It really is hard to explain how grateful we feel for people who will take time out of their Saturday to come and remember Holland, as well as Vienne and Georgia. And on top of that, so many people were so generous with making financial contributions.
It's a gift to feel so blessed at a difficult time of year. By watching everyone be so generous, I was reminded of the person that I want to be like. And I was also reminded of the contribution that community can make to the grieving process.
I was still a little sick, and so I wasn't able to run it like I wanted to. But in the end, it didn't seem to matter too much because I was just so happy seeing so many people I care about.
Thanks for making it a wonderful afternoon!
P.S. More pictures and details to come.
