In Loving Memory

In loving memory

simple gesture, kind, humble
a trinket left on the children's bed, unannounced treasure
gentle soul
heart of gold

may you rest in peace

Mountains by C Moore age 11

This so reminds me of work by the group of seven!

Our hearts and prayers
to all those affected by the events in Japan

An easy way to help with relief in Japan

Salvation Army: To contribute to earthquake relief, text 'JAPAN' or 'QUAKE' to 80888 to make a $10 donation or visit Please note that text donations though easy usually take 30 to 60 days to move from carrier to releif organization. That said mobile donations were effective in raising over 32 million toward aid to Haiti in the 2010 earthquake.

Red Cross: Text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 from your phone. This will donate to the general Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, so if you want to ensure that it goes to Japan you'll have to donate from their Web site.
