For Maddie

Madeline Alice Spohr
November 11, 2007 - April 7, 2009

There's not much I can say that hasn't been said already. Like so many others, I am heartbroken for the family of this beautiful little girl. I can only begin to imagine what they are going through right now. I watched my sister-in-law lose her son at 16, and I still see the pain my grandmother feels 60+ years after the death of her son. And I wish that no parent ever had to go through what the Spohrs are going through right now.

All I can really do to help is do something in memory of Maddie - something that will help prevent this from happening to other babies, other parents.

On March 9th, I will walk in memory of Maddie and in support of the March of Dimes. I know times are tough, but if you can help, a lot of people would appreciate it:
