    Thanks @Chumley, I will send you a PM if you'd like to send something along.

    I appreciate everyone's well wishes...I hope it's a good way to promote the healing process (other than crying and feeling intermittently sad then angry then lonely!)AND do some good in the world in Linus' memory.

    One more pic of Linus at his daddy's hockey game...he loved the rink, and chewing on hockey pucks!

    Absolutely awesome! When my Mable died, I was so lost in pain and self pity, I couldn't have seen something like this! Shame on me! I will remember this lesson!

    Some of you may know that my husband and I are avid ice hockey players and run a weekly adult hockey skills class in our area. As a tribute to Linus, I decided to organize a skate that offers a discount to any skater that brings us food, blankets, towels, and toys to class AND we will be donating all profits as well to the Arizona Humane Society.

    I wanted to start this thread to let everyone know how much I appreciate everything and to update it after the skate (which happens next Wednesday) to let you know how we do in Linus' memory. I hope we get a big haul to donate to homeless animals!

    Here is the flyer I put together...Linus was a big lover of stinky hockey gear

    Although the sadness is overwhelming at times, I hope I can do some good in Linus' name by giving back to needy animals and continuing to share what I learned from my time with him on EBN.

    Thanks again for all the support!

    You my dear are just incredible!!!!!!!! What an amazing idea and amazing way to honor sweet Linus. Kudos to you for turning this into something to benefit others. You are truly an angel. Fingers and paws crossed for a huge turn out

    Such a wonderfully beautiful tribute to Linus. Yes, he would definitely be proud of him momma and how she's helping so many others right now. You're awesome, Jill!

    God bless you, for turning your grief into something so awesome. Those we have loved never go away, they walk beside us everyday. Let time heal the pain, and love heal the heart. May you take comfort in knowing others care.

    I cried when I heard about Linus. You are doing such a great thing in his honor.

    Just a quick update:

    Our Linus Memorial Skate took place last night and we had an even better turnout than expected!

    We collected three boxes of medical blankets from a skater who is an EMT and his work donated them. We got another full box of kitty and dog toys, blankets, food, and other goodies - not to mention the stuff I need to dig out from my own stash before we go make the donation.

    On top of all of this, we are donating some $300 in cash from donations and profits to the Arizona Humane Society.

    A super big, Linus-sized thank you to @Chumley for his donation in Linus' honor - and everyone else who "Liked" the pics of Facebook and got the skate a lot of exposure. It is really uplifting to be able to do this in Linus' memory.

    Here's the donations...more to be added!
