Thank you

To all who have supported us so much,

We wanted to tell you “thank you” with all our hearts. We received so much support in all forms and we continue to get wonderful support. It’s a testament to how big your hearts are and how much Isabelle meant to you. Her spirit lives on.

Thank you to all those who came to help us clean South Park last weekend. You volunteered your precious time to help us do something nice for the community in Isabelle’s name. Isabelle loved playing in the park and she would ask to go every day. She just loved having fun in the open air. She’d play until she wore herself completely out.

Cleaning the park is our way of remembering Isabelle. It’s our way to keep her spirit alive and ensure that South Park gets some much needed attention (tender loving care). I have to share a funny story about this. Back in May we got started on cleaning the park and there was a homeless person sleeping on a bench (don’t tell the parks and rec please). We came across this person, who was an older man, and he said “you know they have people that get paid to clean up this park” and Amanda said “we’re cleaning the park to help remember our daughter” to which he said “you could do that at a pizza restaurant”. That’s such a poignant moment that I reflect upon often. We didn’t go into an explanation with this person about why we were doing this and why Isabelle was so wonderful and why we are trying to give back to the community in her name.

I think all of you know “why” (hopefully). When we go to the park we feel like Isabelle comes with us. She was such a warm and wonderful person and her spirit of sharing and giving is easily spread to you when we do these things together.

We definitely don’t get paid to clean the park, but to us, it’s one of the most important things we’ve done. It’s something that is so close to Isabelle’s heart that we just love sharing it. Now, if the weather would continue to cooperate (not too hot and not too wet) then we can definitely have an awesome time there.

Again, thank you so much to those who have come to the park to help us. On average it’s taken us a around an hour to do it (with your help). Without help, it was taking around two hours!
