Rhiannon’s cousin Amy passed away early last year from pancreatic cancer. She was diagnosed the spring before – it moved so fast! To make it extra devastating, her partner had their first baby girl less than two weeks prior to her passing.
I had the privilege of working with Amy last year (the year she got sick) at Lincoln-Sudbury High School. It is a true testament of how good she was at her job to see how much her students and coworkers loved her!
Baby Ryckie (who’s first name is actually Amy – after her mother) is a beautiful, smart, fun girl, just like Amy and Lindsey. As a memorial to Amy, her family decided to host a benefit and give all the proceeds to baby Ryckie. It will be held in Canaseraga where we grew up – at the American Legion, on November 10. If you’re close by, be sure to stop in!
And, if you do go, you can have a chance to win a mini session from us! We’re donating a 30 minute family session to be held on December 14 at 9am – we’ll be in NY that weekend to celebrate Christmas with my side of the family. Be sure to have fun at the benefit for us – we can’t make it 🙁
