Smaritans Walk for Suicide Prevention, Sept. 29, Massachusetts

https://sna.etapestry.com/fundraiser/Samaritans/5K2012/individual.do?participationRef=1834.0.821876961

Last night I spent many hours clearing out the apartment of someone I loved very much. It was Bobby’s brother and me crying and laughing and carrying boxes. In an effort to make something positive out of a tragedy I am participating in a fundrasing walk on September 29. I’ve attached the link above and knowing the level of kindness of those I have met on this blog I thought some of you would be interested. I’m also setting up a scholarship fund that I’ll administer through my nonprofit in the next few weeks. Someone as special as he was needs to be remembered for his kindness and he was only happy when he doing something for someone else. Hopefully the Samaritans will be able to help someone else with the funds raised. Thanks for reading.

About Magnolia Beginnings

Just when you think you have it all down it changes again or... “Reshaping life! People who can say that have never understood a thing about life—they have never felt its breath, its heartbeat—however much they have seen or done. They look on it as a lump of raw material that needs to be processed by them, to be ennobled by their touch. But life is never a material, a substance to be molded. If you want to know, life is the principle of self-renewal, it is constantly renewing and remaking and changing and transfiguring itself, it is infinitely beyond your or my obtuse theories about it.” ― Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago

  1. Maureen, when I posted the Samaratins link on my page the first time, I heard from an old school friend of my brothers who lives in the Boston area, that Samaratins helped her and her family tremendously when her brother suicided. She also participates in Samaratin Walks in his memory. My thoughts are with you dear friend and can’t wait to welcome you with open arms in October.
