With great sorrow in my heart and by some cruel twist of fate, I write today asking you to donate money to my good friend Gorillabuns, who lost her beautiful baby Thalon to SIDS this weekend.

My heart aches for their family.
I don't understand why this happened.
I want to help but I don't know how.
I want to hug them but I'm too far away.
I just hope they can feel everyone's support and love surrounding them.
I pray for their strength.
I am filled with sadness.

Please give anything you can to help them cover the medical and funeral expenses. And know that their family is so appreciative of all of the prayers and good thoughts from countless friends and strangers.

I love you, Shana. I am so, so sorry.

Is there any way I can help? I don't know the family in person, but I've been reading her blog. I live really close by, do you know if anyone has set up anything? Can I bring them dinner? Please let me know.

I wish all the love I have for their family was enough right now. I just feel so heavy with sadness.

This is just breaking my heart today.

I think this is a great idea, it hadn't even crossed my mind about the expenses.....talk about pouring salt in the wound.

I'm definitely going to donate....how long will you be accepting donations?

I don't like to make it a habit of linking to people's blogs without asking them (even though lots of other people do it), but I'm wondering if you'd mind if I linked to this post so you can hopefully get some more donations? Shana's a good friend of mine and I think this is a great thing you're doing.

Kerrie- Can you send me your email address? I couldn't get through to your profile off of blogger.

Berly- Absolutely. Link away! Thank you. :)

Will do. I live in Utah, but if there's anything else I can do, I'll do it. Hopefully you can get a bunch of donations, I'll spread the word.

Dave Grohl performed 'Everlong' solo and acoustic at the Foo Fighters concert last September. It was stripped down, so simple, and so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes.

It was at the concert that I bought the Davey Grolton Band tee, just like Shana's.

I cannot believe this is happening.

This is all so horribly, horribly wrong.

I couldn't find an email address for you either. Here's mine -

I just learned about this family. It's so very sad.

it is all so senseless. it seems like yesterday, we were all celebrating his birth and had a great party.

Now, I'm left with wonderful memories but not my child. A child that I was hoping would understand and appreciate all things wonderful like Dave Grohl.

love to you and thank you for all your support!
