A word from Suanne

It's been pretty surreal, these past few days. I keep busy attending the details of all of the arrangements that must be made. It's a comfort to be with both Cameron and Jasper, sharing our good memories and grief. Hubby John is available whenever needed, even through his own grief. Carma has been a comforting presence at the apartment for the last two days with her kindnesses and helpfulness. Jasper is dealing with it all as a 5-year-old ... he makes us all keep smiling through it all.
If you would like to do something remember Elise or her family during this time, here are some ideas:
*Post a comment on this blog with your memories of Elise.
*Send a card to Elise's family/caretakers:
-Cameron & Jasper Kinnamon: 805 112th St. SE #J103, Everett, WA 98208
-Suanne & John Carlson: 4329 334th Pl SE, POB 1300, Fall City, WA 98024
*Donate to Jasper's college fund: Follow this link http://raisingjasper.blogspot.com/2008/04/college-fund-for-jasper.html
*Make a donation to Cameron & Jasper: Use PayPal button at the top right of this page.
*Make a donation in Elise's memory for brain tumor research: Follow this link http://www.abta.org/index.cfm?contentid=54
*Attend a gathering held in Elise's memory, a social time for friends and family, to remembering Elise over some drinks: Details to follow.

Hi eveyone,
You guys are on my mind alot. I know there's no way to really prepare for this, even if you thought you could. It's good to know you're there for eachother, and I guess staying busy helps. I wanted to let you know, if you need someone to do flowers, I'm an assistant floral merchandiser, I could see if my boss Ashley is available. Let's stay in touch. (206)632-2806-

Cameron, Jasper, Joe, Suanne, & John - you are in our prayers daily. We will forever remember Elise growing up, playing at our house on weekends with Parker, loving on her kitty Calico, and being part of our lives. We miss her. Aunt Ceri and Uncle Paul
