Pinwheel Power

Aspen's Pinwheels

Aspen’s Pinwheels

Pinwheels were everywhere, I mean everywhere.  Pinwheels could be found in people’s yards, sidewalks, drive ways, on street corners, athletic fields, businesses, flower pots, tied to traffic signs, car antennas, as lapel pins, and churches.

Aspen loved pinwheels.  Within a few days of his tragic accident, the entire community was blanketed with pinwheels, supporting Aspen’s struggle for life.   The three year-old fought long and hard to give everyone a chance to say good bye.  Pinwheels adorned every pew in the packed church for his funeral.

This little guy touched so many hearts in such a short period of time; his pinwheels will continue to twirl in our hearts forever.

Thought for the Day:  What we have once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes a part of us.                                                      Helen Keller
