I am taking a moment to hold the hearts of David & Barb Bye as they celebrate Maggie's birthday (Jan 7th), an inspiring young woman who lose her life to cancer at 15 years old. I had the great honor of meeting this lovely couple at a poetry reading I did for 'Wishing on a Runway' back in November 2014. This was a great event organized by UW-Madison School of Human Ecology and Wisconsin BBA Student Government where proceeds went to support Make-A-Wish Wisconsin. Here is more about Maggie's story and Maggie's Angels: www.maggiesangelsinc.org/#!maggiesstory/csgz
Today, my wish for you, David & Barb is that you always remember Maggie's bright beautiful smile & big heart and may you live to honor her spirit the rest of your lives. We, at Fashion Meets Poetry are thinking of you & would like to dedicate this poem to you on this day. From one parent to another (smiling through tears) xoxo L.
