Reuben moved to heaven nearly 14 months ago and sometimes it really does feel like yesterday
Friends ask how do I cope……I still laugh and enjoy life but there is always a hole in my heart that can never be filled.
Isaac is an absolute joy – he is learning to swim at a wonderful swimming school in Hollingworth, he has always enjoyed reading but in the last week, something has clicked and he can now read the words without necessarily spelling them all out which makes me smile
I read to Isaac as many times as I can at bedtime and remember when I was a child how when you learn how to read you open up your mind to all sorts of adventure and imagination
And Nic…even though Nic’s grief is at a different stage to mine. Nic is such a strong and determined lady who is always there for Isaac and I at night and weekends
Anyway….I wanted to update you on our progress in nearly 14 months….
In 14 months Facebook has grown from zero to over 34,500 likes
In 14 months Twitter has grown from zero to over 5300 followers
TOGETHER we have raised OVER Half a Million Pounds
THANK you to each every person who has donated, or helped us increase awareness in any other way….this is VERY much appreciated…..THANK YOU
We are currently looking at properties which could become Reuben’s Retreat
Our aim is to reach One Million Pounds in 23 months ( the length of time we were lucky enough to spend with Reuben )
Tonight one message – PLEASE SHARE this post and CLICK on the link below
From now to the end of November localgiving will DOUBLE all donations up to 10 pounds plus gift aid
