Thanks to everyone who joined us, even in the cruddy weather. While Alicia’s high school English teacher was reading selections from To Kill A Mockingbird, there was a break in the rain and then an unexpected gift appeared…

It was captured by someone who was on their way to the service and shared this picture. The accompanying email read:

Emily took this picture as she was walking up to Alicia Parlette’s public memorial service this evening. Synchronicity? Coincidence? No. Faith and Love.

I’d like to end this busy week with a peaceful and touching note we received from one of the English teachers at Alicia’s high school (Granite Bay High School) wrote into the site today:

“…I wanted to share some thoughts about To Kill a Mockingbird (her favorite book) that relate to Alicia’s situation. In the novel there is an elderly woman, Mrs. Dubose, who was in a lot of physical discomfort. Atticus, as a punishment for Jem, his son, for chopping down her camellia bushes asks him to read to Mrs. Dubose each day.
