Seeds of Hope 5K Community Walk

This walk was held to honor all those that have lost their lives to suicide and to bring awareness about depression.  We walked in honor of our son Brandon who lost his life to suicide on May 27, 2009.  We miss him terribly!  The weather was terrible!  It started to rain as soon as we got there.  That really affected the number of people that showed up.  I honestly thought they would have had a big crowd.

They did a pretty good job with the event.  Like the title says, it was suppose to be a 5K walk.  They ended up stopping at 2 1/2 miles.  I'm sure the rain was the cause.   We walked as a family and in honor of Brandon!

That's was what the event was all about anyway!  We love you Brandon!

Steve, I am so very sorry for your loss. I lost my only brother to suicide in March of 2008. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. We too did a walk here in Illinois in September. It rained as well. I was lucky enough to see the most amazing rainbow I had ever seen that morning. I am not sure if I believe in signs, but it sure felt like one. Thinking about you guys in this tough time.
