While Brian played Mr. Mom for a few days, I was able to attend Marisa’s memorial service in Arizona. It was an emotional weekend, but I’m so glad I was able to go. Marisa is truly one-of-a-kind, and made (and will continue to make) an impact on so many lives. Her hilarious sense of humor and unending compassion for others will live on. As many people said, knowing Marisa made you want to be a better person. (You can read more about Marisa here and here.)
My brother, Scott, created this beautiful tribute video for Marisa, that truly captures the inspiration she is to her family, her friends, and the rest of the world. It was played during her memorial service – not a dry eye in the house when it finished!
Scott will be walking with Team Marisa & Wellesley at the Great Strides Walk in Phoenix to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on May 22, 2011. If you have some change to spare, and want to support a great cause, please donate! According to CFF: “your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively, as nearly 90 cents of every dollar of revenue raised is available for investment in vital CF programs to support research, care and education.”

I will be offering free printables, during the week of April 17, 2011, in exchange for your generous donation to Team Marisa & Wellesley. Please click the button to the right for more information!
Thanks so much for your support!
