On April 7, 2009, Madeline Alice Spohr unexpectedly passed away. The blogosphere has rallied around the Spohr family. All around the country, families like ours are releasing purple balloons in honor and in memory of Maddie.
When Nicholas asked me why we were letting them go, I told him we were sending them to Maddie. "In heaven?" Yes, dear. In heaven.
Maddie's burial service is Tuesday at 2:30 PST. Please wear purple in honor of Madeline and her family.
