Today I wear purple.
Today Mike and Heather will bury little Maddie. Today I wear purple to honor Maddie, to honor her life and her memory. Today I wear purple to stand with Mike and Heather.
Today I hug my child just a little bit tighter, just a little bit longer.
Today another mother knows the pain of losing a child. Again I do not know her but my heart breaks for her loss, for the loss of her son Thalon.
I know that words are not enough. But, today, words are all I have for Mike and Heather, for Shana and her family, for the countless others who have know the pain of losing a child.
Today I stand with you.
Today I honor the memory of your sweet children.
Today I wear purple
