Nicholas' 3rd Angel Day ~ Race and Remembrance ~ A story in photos

Nicholas' 3rd Angel Day was emotional, fabulous, overwhelming, magical, humbling and joyous.... A beautiful mess of contradictions, much like our lives now.... a delicate balance of happy and sad... of grateful and hurt...of peace and disdain.

We were blessed. Blessed with fantastic, sunshiney weather.. blessed with an abundance of friends and family showing love and support in the name of our son. Blessed with remembrance and comfort as we celebrated Nicholas and what his life means to us.

We were also blessed to have a great friend take some perfect photos of our day.

Below tells our story:



Lovely, spirited, Evan delivering bubbles to the kids
