the value of a mom

I've written here several times about Let There Be Mom, a wonderful organization that helps terminally ill mothers leave a legacy for their young children. Another of "their" moms passed away today -- and what a legacy she left. Learn more about Monica Pryor and her beautiful family here, here, and here. The last link is to a sermon at my church from about six weeks ago. Monica appears in a video near the end of the sermon, telling about the importance of Let There Be Mom. She then plays violin -- she played with several orchestras in the past -- with our praise band to "Live Like You Were Dying."

She did.

We should.

It is believed that Monica's cancer was caused by radon in her home. My friend, Mike Burns, wrote a great story about Monica and the dangers of radon here. It is scary, but worth the read.
