Yesterday was a special celebration for Anthony, it marked his tenth birthday. While playing with the grandchildren at the park chosen for the event I noticed a commemorative sign and was touched by the message. So were they.



The parents of a four year old donated all of the park equipment so that children could play and enjoy themselves like their son did when he lived. Their four year old son was taken from them much too early as the result of a car accident. Even in their grief they celebrated life with their donation which was marked with the commemorative sign. I believe that my grandchildren and their friends enjoyed playing in the park all the more knowing of the special significance and extreme generosity of the grieving parents.

The last line of their message pleads with us to enjoy our children, and enjoy we did.


 
It seemed very fitting to celebrate a birthday here and I’m sure Carter would have enjoyed the party very much. Happy Birthday Anthony!

Happy Birthday Anthony!

So many smiles, it looks like the kids had a great time at the party.

It was very generous of them to donate the playground equipment. It is a wonderful, and lasting, tribute to their child.
