Thank you to the players of the 07 VE Gunners and Fishtown Rowdies as well as their coaches and families for helping to kick off our event.
The kids played for Phil and the Stendardo family. Soccer was such a big part of Shane and “goal” was one of his last words.
We know he would have loved this addition.
Thank you to our families. We appreciate your love and support and on Saturday we couldn’t have prepared all the tents without your hard work!

This picture was my first and only Mother’s Day with Shane.
Today, I am a mother who cannot celebrate with all of my children, but I can celebrate my accomplishment of being their mom. Time moves on and new beginnings are upon us, but I am changed forever by my precious boy.
In his short time here, Shane taught me to appreciate the beauty of each day and how precious life’s moments are.
I will never doubt my ability as a mother or the things I can push myself to do for the sake of my child.
Even if that meant letting go.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you….moms, moms to be, moms who lost, moms of sick children, moms who are trying to conceive, and those who aren’t moms by blood, but play the role of one…..celebrate you.
