Last year our family cheered at the finish line for my dad, as he crossed–“running the Boston Marathon” off his bucket list. The energy of the event filled our hearts as we watched thousands and thousands run that day. Emilie and the girls made large signs they held to help motivate their grandpa. This trip ended up being the last time Emilie and her grandpa were both together. The Boston Marathon was such a special memory for us and this year they were using the race to honor our little Emilie and the twenty five other lives lost from Sandy Hook in December. Our hearts are truly broken by the tragic events that took place today. Again all our lives have been affected by another act of senseless violence. Our prayers went immediately to family members waiting to find out information on their loved ones…because we know of the despair felt during those moments. Our tears flow heavily for those who now have had their worst fears realized. Our prayers are with you and your loved ones.
