THE STORY:

The Legacy by John Wayne Schlatter


When I die, give what is left to my children.
If you need to cry, cry for your brothers walking beside you.
Put your arms around anyone and give them what you need to give me.
I want to leave you with something better than words or sounds.
Look for me in the people I have known and loved.
And if you cannot live without me, then let me live on in your eyes, your mind, and your acts of kindness.
You can love me most by letting hands touch hands and letting go of children that need to be free.
Love does not die, people do.
So that when all that is left of me is love...give me away.

Thank you AGAIN for supporting me as I run the 2017 Boston Marathon as a member of the Children’s room Miles and Memories team. The girls and I  miss Diane..it’s that simple.  Our lives have been forever changed and the girls and I are so grateful for the support we receive from the Children’s Room along with the love and care from our family and friends.  Maeve and Luisa are my greatest gifts from Diane and they are my constant reminders of Diane.  

I continue to run in memory of Diane and in honor of Maeve and Luisa. I hope you will join me in my motivation for running.We continue to be overwhelmed by your support and we are so very appreciative of it.

Since 2013 The Children’s Room has helped the girls and I find ways to live our lives without Diane and to connect with other families who have been faced with the loss of someone we love so much. 

What your gift will mean…
By supporting my run, you will be supporting my family and so many others who receive support from the Children’s room.  The Children’s room creates a safe and supportive community for children and their family’s.  They believe that no child has to grieve alone.  The Children’s room services are free of charge and they rely on generous donations such as yours in order to do so. Some of the programs they provide are peer support groups at their Arlington location and in the Greater Boston Area.  They also hold Parenting while Grieving Education Series, a Monthly Family Night arts-based program, teen programming, adult consultations, as well as information and referrals to families and professionals looking for additional grief-related services in their area.

Thank you....AGAIN
