    Those we lost in 2014

    Finding Joy For Macky

     
    On March 1st, we lost our precious 2 year old son, Cormac ("Macky") Thomas to window blind cord asphyxiation. I put my healthy, athletic, happy little boy to bed for the night and checked on him at midnight, but by dawn the next morning he was gone. We had no idea that the cords running through window blinds (NOT merely the pull cord) posed a lethal danger to children ages 0-7 years old. Our Macky was joyfulness personified - he never stopped smiling and laughing. He was our intrepid adventurer, the life of the party, the hope in our hearts. No parent should know what it is to lose a child. No mother. Not ever. We miss you every minute of every day, Macky.
