    Default Share your favorite memory *JULY2007*

    The post that babyblues341 made got me thinking... When my maternal grandparents passed away, I was an adult. My family didn't have a traditional funeral for either of them. Instead the family got together and just shared memories of our time with them. Some of the stories were happy, some were touching, some were funny etc. But we all felt like that sharing helped us grieve and heal.

    I think since all of us can't be together physically at a memorial service for Reed, we can share our stories here... Kinda like an online memorial service.

    So share your memories and favorite stories of Reed, Sarah, and Gardenbug. Hopefully it will help us heal, and be a blessing to the family as well!

    One thing that sticks out so well when I think of Reed is him and the hot tub!!!!! I love the pic of him and his daddy chillin in the hot tub when it was freezing outside. He seemed to love the hot tub so much.

    I keep thinking about the picture of him in the wagon in the snow with Indy dog pulling him. He looked so proud of himself and like such a big boy. And then the video of him recently where he got up on the playground and went down the slide head first all by himself - What a brave little guy he was!

    What a great idea. There are a few things in particular that stand out when I think of Reed. One is that he seemed to really enjoy nakie time as I remember several photos of him I also remember, as I posted on another thread, a photo of him digging into a bag of marshamllows on a camping trip, such an adventurous little guy!!

    His love for Indy Dog came through in every photo of the 2 of them together. And the pics of Daddy and Reed were always so sweet.

    My favorite is when I heard that he was eating perogies!! I love perogies, so it was amazing to me that a little boy would love them so much, as I didn't start eating them until I was an adult.

    Also, I love the picture of Reed and Wayne in the hot tub, when Wayne's hair was frozen from the steam.

    I love the story of him being attached to a fork or a spoon- I think it's so hillarious! Sarah said that he HAD to have it when eating or he would fuss Mr. Manners!

    Also, him going to the bathroom so proudly warms my heart!

    I posted on another thread one of my favourite pictures of him was sitting on a car with the hood open with overalls on. It was such a cute picture. He always had a bit smile on his face, such a sweet boy. I love that gardenbug is a part of our board. It's neat to have such a proud grandma on here, she did such a great job on updating us on Reed and showing us all the great pictures of him that were taken.

    Oh my there is just so many.

    I am really in awe that Sarah would try (and even master) the "art" of having a diaperless baby. I always thought it was crazy, but that's probably b/c I have never heard of it. She really opened my eyes to trying things that arn't the "norm".
    The making bread while in labor makes me laugh everytime!

    Gardenbug, I think, was a blessing in disguise to this board. Not only was she albe to connect with her daughter and grandson across the country and not feel like she's missing things in their lives, but she also took the time to help us too. She truly knows EVERYTHING, and knows what to say at just the right times.

    And little Reed. I will miss seeing his baby bum in all those pics. Playing with Indy dog, with toys. Everywhere with no pants. That smile could melt anyones heart. And that pic of him dancing at that festival, and making the scrunched nose,
    My Favourite pics though, is the one when they all went out for a walk, and Reeds face peeking out of his fathers coat. I'm sure they will treasure that picture, among all the other forever.

    We will miss you Reed Aslan.
