January 23 – Too many sad songs …

So … someone I know found this song.  He posted it on his Facebook.  I clicked on it and heard the song and read the lyrics.  **It was a rainy day**  Here it is:  Simple Plan – Gone Too Soon.  The lyrics were sad but fitting.  I had lunch today with a great friend. Someone I had worked with in the past.  I remember when Amanda was born and she came to see me with a lovely gift of a pretty yellow dress for Amanda.  That was so long ago but I still have the memory.  I also had the memory of Amanda spitting up baby stuff all the time.  YUCK!!!  

People today have asked if I had read the article in The Province newspaper yesterday about the mom who is having a hard time getting supports for her daughter.  Yes I did and I can sure understand.  Now I want to know what has happened with the family.  

There was also a youth conference somewhere near Seattle today.  Amanda’s story was brought up as well as case studies done on her. That will be interesting to see.

I am amazed at how there is still so much going on about her story and message.  I try and post articles as quickly as I get them on my Tumblr.  There are definitely a whole bunch of interesting ones from all over.  I have gotten phone calls from the media from the UK, Germany, eastern Canada, Italy and France again.  My brain wants to have a vacation.
