Dear Jeni — Thinking of you so much during this difficult but special week.  I can not believe how old Mattie “is”!  Happy B Day Mattie!  One of my favorite quotes of Mattie’s is “Remember to play after every storm!” Love Love Love!  I am comforted to know Nikko has a buddy and friend to look up to right now!  In October Nikko would be 13!  I must inquire how you are feeling?  My prayers are always with you my friend.  What are you working on now?  Please keep me posted.  Again, Happy Birthday Mattie! Love to you all, – Carolann (via e-mail)

Hi Jeni, there are many of us who have Mattie on our minds more these days with his birthday coming up.  It is a fantastic idea for us to donate $23 to his foundation and I will do that.  You already know I’m quirky (why be normal, that’s no fun!) and one of my quirks is I remember dates and numbers easily such as going across a calendar any day of the week 365 days a year and knowing people’s b-days on it -even from grade school.  Maybe it is due to appreciation for the gift of life, no matter how long one lives.  Numerous events had to fall into place from the beginning of time for us to exist.  Miracles do happen.  True, life has its ups and downs, but still -it is awesome to be a part of it!  And to be the best person we can to each other.  Peace, Eileen — (via email)

I loved the picture of Mattie at the beach.  It puts a SMILE on my face every time I look at it.  I just made a donation for $25. since my husband & I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary this month & thought this is a wonderful idea.  You are brilliant to continue Mattie’s message, in a very touching way.  It always makes my day to get the e-Peace Updates.  You remain in my prayers. – Marrianne Maurice (via email)
