A little birdie told me today that a group of friends and neighbors here are taking turns watering Aidan's trees each week at the Brandywine Wallace Elementary School grove that the school community built and dedicated in his honor this past May. It might not seem like a big deal, but I'm stunned and humbled by this act of dedication, of vigilance, of loving care by people who knew Aidan as if he was their own child and by those who had never met him at all. I'm almost crippled by this generosity; I was hardly able to catch my breath when I learned of this. Thank you, thank you, thank you, to those of you who are involved. It means the world to Steve and I that you continue to care for and honor the memory of our son.
