A long week of love…

My son died one week from today, last Friday, January 9th, 2009.  He was an amazing boy, and I am so thankful for the five years that I have had with him!  God truly blessed us with a miraculous  precious gift.
He is so missed, and we are grateful for his love of God, and that he is not uncomfortable or in pain and is enjoying his time for eternity.  Caden loved to come down to my studio and ask for scraps to make sculptures of his own.  I will post some of these at a later date.  Make a Wish foundation sent us to Disney World after his second diagnosis of Neuroblastoma cancer.  While we were there we went to Sea World.  Noel and he loved Shamu and they both got a stuffed toy orca.  I saw that they had carved orca tails for sale, but we didn’t purchase any.  I carved these tails for the kids to remember their trip out of walnut wood for Christmas.  We loved that the tails were to remind the kids to believe and follow their dreams.  My brother, myself, Peter and Chad, my brother-in-laws carried his casket to the waiting grave.  At the graveside memorial for Caden I took some pictures with a friends camera of the casket with the angels at the corner and of the calalilies on top of the casket and the tree behind lit up by the late day sun that came out after our friend Tom prayed in his rememberance.  His body is resting in this beautiful spot nestled in the woods of the rolling hills of Kansas just a stones throw from my Great – Great Grandfathers Homestead foundation and well.  Caden’s story is one of courage, bravery, faith, joy and love.  Please read more here.   My wife wrote a striking and poignant poem that truly speaks to our Mr. C and his five wonderful years of life, from the day he was born May 5, 2003 during the tornado to the point when he was free last Friday, January 9, 2009.

Caden White Silicone Wrist Bands and other items for Christmas and support

My son Cadenrelapsed with Neuroblastoma cancer on November 7th, 2008,  and to help spread the word, support him and to let people know to be praying for him, I had some silicone wrist bands made that are made the same way as the Lance Armstrong blacelets.  All proceeds will go to his fund “The Caden White Irrevocable Trust”.  Purchase them here.  Also, I am offering “Tiny Mantel Clocks by Darin” for sale with the proceeds after cost going to his fund.  I will customize them as needed, with the price varying independent to what is required.  I have solid walnut wood, poplar wood and frosted acrylic with varying face styles.  Please contact me to discuss these further.  I will try and set up a PayPal setup for this as well.
