Candles for Collin

Julie asked me to put up a post requesting that everyone light a candle in Collin's memory on his birthday, April 23rd (not honor because he has passed away). 

 We are having a celebration of life party that day as well. We thought that would be a nice way for everyone to celebrate his life with us on his birthday, even if you cannot attend the party. 

Our family has started a new tradition whereby when we have family gatherings, we light a candle in memory of Collin. It helps us fill the void left by his absence. With such a close knit family, we have a lot of family dinners and such, and it was a little odd the first couple of times we sat down to dinner without Collin there. The candle helps us remember that he is gone but not forgotten. 

Thank you!

Julie and Heath's Much-Needed-Fifth-Anniversary-Celebration-Date-Night-Extravaganza!!

I had a blast planning and organizing Julie and Heath's Much-Needed-Fifth-Anniversary-Celebration-Date-Night-Extravaganza!! 

They will be leaving for said Extravaganza tomorrow, April 9th, at 2:30 p.m. Please refrain from contacting them from Saturday, April 9th at 2:30 p.m. to the late afternoon hours of Sunday, April 10th to allow them time alone to enjoy their adventure! 

I cannot share the plan just yet because it is a surprise to Julie and Heath. I will share it with you all when they have learned of it! 

Thank you to all of you for your donations and assistance in making this night possible, as well as to those who donated to help cover medical expenses and funeral expenses. We had enough from the date night donations to cover the date night, plus leftover to put into the medical expenses/funeral expenses fund! 

Thank you for your continued support!

Hello all!

We have a couple of fundraisers in the works! Please help us cover the outstanding medical and funeral expenses!!

Cuff Bracelets

One of Julie and my friends from high school is making cuff bracelets to sell, with 100% of the profits going to help cover Collin's bills. (For those who are wondering, we are still planning to do the rubber style bracelets as well - they are in the works.)

Please click HERE to go to the Etsy website where you can order these bracelets. Thank you!

Benefit Show 

I told Collin a long time ago that Aaron (my boyfriend) and I were going to put on a benefit show for him. He was so excited, and he spoke of it to me often. At first after he died, I wasn't going to do it. After some thought and incredible support from the Indianapolis music scene, I decided to go forward with it.  We have scheduled an adults only (21+) benefit show for June 10th. There will be a full line up and other information posted as soon as we have it confirmed. We hope to do an all ages show sometime this fall so that Collin's friends can attend one. For now, we are doing a smaller, adult only benefit show (mostly because I couldn't secure an all ages venue!). Mark your calendars!

Keep checking back for more! : )
