For Ethan





Pink Cat Studio is releasing these new digital stamps today to raise money for the Make-a-Wish Foundation in honour of Ethan Wieman. Little Ethan passed away on June 12th from Neuroblastoma Cancer. Ethan was a true cowboy, loved horses, balloons and knock knock jokes. By purchasing these digital images, you will help brighten the day of a sick child as the money that is raised, will go toward making one of their dreams come true. You can follow this link to Pink Cat Studio to contribute to this worthy cause in Ethan's memory and to read about this remarkable little boy.








My eyes filled with tears as I read the words of Ethan's Mother, Alicia.....I know that anyone would be saddened by this touching story, especially those of you that are parents. For those of us who have lost children, the pain of other's losses seem to seep right into the empty space deep inside of ourselves; that place that should be filled with memories as we guide our children into adolescence and adulthood. What I do know is that Heaven has one more Beautiful Angel and I truly hope that Ethan's family finds as much comfort in knowing that he watches over them, as does my Angel Timothy watch over me and Jonathon.







Please help me spread the word of this very worthy fundraiser. I would really appreciate if you could post a link to this post, on your blog. I am offering a twenty dollar gift certificate to Pink Cat Studio for one random winner who leaves me a comment with a link to their blog post.

I will keep choose a winner on Friday June 26, 2009



Thanks so much for Supporting the Make-a-Wish Foundation in Ethan's memory.
