IN MEMORY OF OLIVER ALVIN CRANE
On November 23, 2011 Oliver Alvin Crane was born still. We have thought about him everyday since then. Luke & I had spoken several times about what we would like to do to celebrate Oliver's birthday. We have had several people ask if they can somehow be involved in whatever we choose to do for his birthday. A couple weeks ago we made a decision. We will of course be doing several things that remind us of Oliver by ourselves. However, we also decided on an idea that can involve family and friends in a simple but impactful way.
Service has been and continues to be a big part of our healing process. Since Friday is the day after Thanksgiving many people will be with family, friends, or out shopping among total strangers. This provides the perfect opportunity to perform your own random acts of kindness no matter where you are on that day. It doesn't need to be anything big. It doesn't need to be anything that was planned. We just hope it provides the opportunity to consciously watch for an opportunity to be kind and remember Angel Ollie and his strong spirit.
Luke, Bridget, & Ollie
