I hope that you and your family are doing well.  I thank about ya'll and Vinny often and how life must be for ya'll now, but oh the wonderful memories that you hold in your heart. Vinny was alwyas such a happy and up-lifting young man.  I hope that he and our Steven have become good friends since they are together now.  Our Steven also had ventricular septal defect and other heart defects as well, but there are no more heart problems for them now.  Take care and ya'll are forever in our prayers.  The ELzey Family

Dear Desi, I hope you are enjoying all your extracurricular activities and as the weather gets colder you find activities to keep you busy!! I am the new admin of Christmas Elves and this is my first year doing it and am loving it! I really want to stick with it prenatally since I wont need to travel and I do it right from my computer. Christmas Elves helps those in need that are struggling this holiday season and down the road.

Dear Sarah,

I hope today was a special day for your family.  Vinny is such a special child!  His strength and love for life is something that deserves to be celebrated.  Every.  Single.  Day.  It's bittersweet to to think that today is a day for you to reminisce about the good moments that are now the memories you cherish.  Thank you for continuing to post and for allowing us to share the specialness of your child with you.  Your family is in my daily thoughts. 

Love,

Hi Sarah,

It was really great to meet you, Charlie & Desi as well! Isabella had so much fun with the inflatables:) Thanks for the encouragement too! Sorry we didn't see you today - we ran from the hospital today right after radiation so I could make some more "nutritional liquid" for Bella before my doctor's appointment. I see Desi is running cross country - 27 minutes is a great time!

Take Care,
Tonya

Sarah - I understand that you might think that people have gotten on with their lives and don't want to know what's going on with your family now that Vinny is in Heaven.  However, I, personally still get a great deal of inspiration out of your writing, and I pray for your family regularly.  Vinny really touched my heart, and I doubt I will ever forget him, and I never even met him personally!  The emotional depth of your entries, both before and after Vinny left us, has made me feel like I know him and your family well.  That being said, if you feel so led, please do continue writing.  I think I can speak for lots of people who have gotten to know Vinny and your family over the years in that we enjoy and are inspired by your writing, and it is a joy to "watch" Desi grow up as well.
