Sophie and her sisters: Bailey, Olivia and Moriah.
Sophia Grace Martin
November 22, 2005 - July 2, 2009
In November 2011 we would have celebrated Sophie’s sixth birthday. Instead because of a tragic accident, we honored her memory with a 6K run/walk. We continue to remember and celebrate the time we had with her, as we host the 6th annual Sophie's Six.
It has been over seven years since she passed away, but sometimes the memories of her are so clear that you feel like she’s in the room. You can hear her pounding across the room with heavy feet or imagine her playing babies with her sister Livi. We cherish these memories and recognize that our lives have been so much sweeter having been touched by her.
While our fundraising efforts are not for a national cause or a foundation, they represent something equally important – an opportunity to remind others how precious life is and how important every moment of each day should be to us all.
Life is fragile – it is a gift that we must honor and respect. Make the most of today. Share your love and your time with a child, because you can’t get yesterday back.
We love you and miss you Sophie.
