For Evan Kamida

Because to lose a child must be the hardest hurt. Because The Mother at the Swings says so much. Because we can't be there in person to say, "I'm so sorry," whether we know Vicki in the flesh or solely through her words. Whether we've known Vicki and Evan for years or only for days. Because we want Vicki and her family to know we care and that she and Evan have made a difference.

But mostly because Evan loved to swing.

Add your support by posting your photo of flowers at a swing to the Flickr pool here.


  1. gaaahhhh how am I missing your updates?!?!

  2. I didn't know this family. Have only heard of them since the passing of Evan.

    So very sad. My heart aches for this family.

    Beautiful post and tribute babe, I am sure they appreciate it.

  3. great picture. L.

  4. I am very moved, a loving gesture.

  5. The Mother at the Swing is one of the most heartfelt and emotionally honest things I have ever read. Thank you for leading me to that piece.
