Well this last Dec. marked 7 years since your passing and it hasn't been easy without you here. So much has changed since you've been gone. Your going to be an Uncle for the 2nd time and your niece Sofia shares your middle name in your honor.
The Foundation is continuing to go and we are meeting more and more families with NF and helping out more and more families in our very own community.
I won't lie it has been very hard holding down a full time 5o to 60 hour a week job, be a wife, a mother and a grandmother and keep the foundation going. It has been challenging to say the least. But we have a great group of friends and family who have stuck by us no matter what.
They believe in your dream of helping children who are fighting NF and or Childhood Cancer. This year we will celebrate the 7th Annual Masquerade Ball. It's very exciting and scary at the same time.
I love you son and I miss you like crazy every day. I know we will meet again someday and until we do please continue to watch over us and guide us in the direction we need to be.
Love you always and forever

It happened on a cold snowy night 5 years ago today. I held your hand one last time,I kissed your cheek and I brushed your hair back as you told me it was almost time for you to go.
I was so scared and hurt and felt all alone. I knew I had to let you go and I knew then just as I know now that, that was the most hardest thing for me to do was tell you goodbye. You were only 16.... You experienced more pain and suffering than any child your age should.
you did put up o...ne hell of a fight son. You were so brave... Even at the end. You made me promise you that we would continue to help kids and families who are going through the same thing we went through. You made me promise that we would send kids with NF to the very camp you looked forward to each year.
well son it's been a long tough 5 years but we are still helping kids and there families and we are still sending kids to camp NewFriends every summer just like I promised.
The Foundation had come along way in the last 5 years. We are continuing to grow and maybe one day we will be able to reach out to more and more families and one day everyone will know what NF stands for and they will know what Dino Doozer stands for and who he stands behind.
5 years ago today your body was taken away from me but you will always be in my heart . And because of you and your hopes and dreams of helping others you have given me a reason to get up everyday and keep my promise.
I love you and miss you everyday son.
Love always and forever

Today is a much needed emotional day. I miss you son and I hold my feelings in for so long that it seems my sides will split with sorrow. I know I shouldn't hold it in, but I just don't like to share my feelings with everyone and I never really seam to have that alone time needed. You've been gone for over 4 years and I still haven't watch a single memory movie we started making during your first round of chemo. I'm afraid of the pain and hurt I will feel seeing you and hearing your voice only on the tv but not in real life. Silly I know but a big part of me is not ready to admit you are never coming back home.
I look for clues and signs that you have been around... it's the only thing that really gets me through the day along with my faith in God. Do you know I still have that storage unit. I pay 80$ a month because I'm not ready to deal with your loss. I've been paying on that for almost 5 years now. I know to some it may not make sence, but to those who walk this same road I know will understand all to well. The thought of cleaning out your stuff cuts me deap and in the heart. What am I suppose to do with your stuff? I just don't think I can bring myself to throw your stuff away or give it away. I really just don't know what to do.
I think about you every day son and I can't wait to go to sleep at times in hopes I will see you in my dreams. I miss everything about you. Your smell, your smile, your voice and I miss you calling my name.
Loosing you was not only life changing but forever changing.

As you know we are working around the clock amping things up for this years Annual Dino Doozer "An Evening with the Stars" Event. We have been on a Cupcake Campaign and it seems to be paying off. Yesterday we received a very generous donation and it just felt like such a ground breaking moment. I can't really even put into words how amazing it felt. Tears of joy came over me and I just knew at that minute that all our hard work is paying off.
We are helping more families now than ever and although rewarding I wish Cancer and NF did not exist. But until we find a cure for both we will always be there to help those families in need and help them assist in there fight.
I can't Thank you or God enough for giving me the strength to carry on your Dreams of helping those in need and of course I can't do it alone so I have to Thank all of our Board members and those who support us.
Well son as I'm sure you know I miss you like crazy and my days will never be the same without you, but I do feel you near me every day. I am so proud of you son and all that you have thought me. Because of you I have grown to be the person I am today and I can't tell you how rewarding it is to be your mother.
I love you Sherod always and forever
