My heart is sad today. I lost some one I love yesterday. Christian was an almost twelve year old that lived two doors down from me. Our families have been friends for years. We barbecue in the summer. I quilt with his mom and sister. My boys are good friends with his older brother. I was his primary teacher at church when he was younger and made this quilt for him then. It made me so happy that he loved it so and decorated his whole room around it.
Christian's life was not easy. He was born with spina bifida and has had many other health problems, but he was a fighter and a joy to his friends and family. I will miss saying hi to him while walking by his house. He would often be out in his wheelchair playing baseball with his nurse. He would bat while his nurse threw pitches. He was a tease and often made me laugh.
Good bye Christian; you are an awesome maverick star!
