Today's the Day

Today is the big day.
Been getting ready for it.
Been feeling very nervous about it.

The weather is supposed to be cloudy and windy and rainy and blustery.
I don't think Kendall will mind.

Thanks again to all who are coming, whether they be there physically, or releasing a balloon for Kendall from
(to name a few)
San Francisco
New Zealand
Other parts of Utah
San-wherever the H bomb my aunt lives. :)
many many more.

I imagine Kendall smiling in anticipation at all the strings that will soon be flying her way.
Lots of pictures and a full update tomorrow; I will post the letter I am reading to her today

I will be keeping you and your family in my thoughts all day today.

You are an amazing and caring person.

I am sure it will be a beautiful tribute to Kendall.

She is loved and I'm sure she is smiling.

I will be sending two balloons up, one for my little one who was lost at 11 weeks, and one for your Kendall. Bless you :)

Don't forget about Idaho! I will definitely be there. For Kendall. For you. For your family.

You are in my thoughts today Brie.

I won't be able to make it today but you and sweet Kendall will be in my thoughts and prayers. You are an amazing mom and she is lucky to have you.

Hi- thinking of you today. Planted a window box outside my bedroom window. One white New Guinea impatien for Kendall Penny, and two little white begonias for my mini ones. I will think of you and Kendall every morning when I wake up.

Brie, When I saw all the snow this morning I couldn't help but think it was like a giant white blanket being spread out over the valley as a gift of comfort from Kendall. I will see you this afternoon. Love ya!

Maybe it is GOOD that it is windy/blustery! That means the balloons will be taken up to Kendall quicker!! Maybe she couldn't wait to read your letter so she asked the big man upstairs to make it extra windy today so she could get your letter and balloon sooner :)

Sorry, I'm cheesy...

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope this afternoon is very therapeutic and healing for you. I can't wait to see pictures tomorrow!

I think this is a beautiful idea. As parents we would do anything for our children-I felt that way when we went to the cemetery and made it through feet of snow. Releasing balloons in a storm is something only parents would do for their child. Well parents and some good friends. It is times of sacrifice that our love increases.

I wish I could have been there honey but what a beautiful, touching thing to do. I hope it brings you peace. Love you so much. xoxo
