Along this journey, I’ve met some amazing and outstanding people. None of us really imagined these meetings or ‘meetings,’ but they’ve been very precious.
Two of these people lost their sweet daughter Lila about 6 months ago. In her memory, their friends, family, and assorted contacts have been taking these beautiful Lila stones all kinds of places around the country and around the world.
Mine arrived last night, which gave Becky and I the honor of taking Lila’s stone around Ames. On their page, at the very bottom, are the places that Lila’s and Doria’s memories got to travel together. There’s the cemetery, the Dori Tree, Hilton Coliseum, Jack Trice Stadium, and our beautiful Dori Bear.
It was a fun trip. This is a really cool way to commemorate sweet Lila.
