Sad news from Maryly Matthewman.
May your family share laughter,
Your songs always play,
May your Wishes come true,
Even those left unprayed."
"A few days ago I posted and stated that our Prayer Flag Project for John Bradley Thompson of Gilford, NH had come to an end. I was very wrong in this statement. This afternoon, his family, along with well over 1,000 friends, NH State Police, gathered for the funeral of this remarkable 6 year old. We all walked a half mile from the church service to the cemetery. The route was posted with hundreds of Wish/ Prayer Flags done earlier in John's illness to wish him health, strength, courage, and HOPE. During the service the minister talked to us about how we will carry on John's memory. We saw first hand the power of Prayer Flags to all involved. It absolutely united a community and gave strength and hope to a struggling family. I hope to promote Prayer/Wish Flags whenever I can in the memory of John Bradley Thompson, Fly, Fly, Little Wing" Maryly Matthewman.
