For Theo’s Christmas Stocking, and for my mom: A girl on Em’s basketball team will heal with less pain because Emily and I gave her the good ice machine--it is electric and pumps ice water through a cuff that attaches to the knee. It is great for someone who has had knee surgery and makes recovery so much better. Also, I emailed a friend of Em’s to find out how his coming out to his family went, and to let him know that we are here for him. Finally, working to make the world a better place through our law suit! Merry Christmas Theo! We remember you often, especially during our acts of kindness at this time of year.Note: Carol and her wife Mary Townley are suing the Commonwealth of Virginia in the federal court system claiming that Virginia’s amendment against marriage equality violates their rights granted under the U.S. Constitution. They are joined in the case by Tim Bostic and Tony London. Carol, Mary, Tim and Tony have the support of the American Foundation for Equal Rights--as well as the support of the Helbert-Fueglein family and so many others who love them and support them and believe that all people should have the right to marry they person they love.
From Michaux Dempster:
Sunday, and a lady that comes to feed her every day. We offered to take a share in this work, and exchanged information with the lady so that we could relieve her of this sometimes.
It has been a couple of years since I was enrolled in your course yet have contemplated doing this since the very first time I heard about Theo and the blog you have created. Besides the daily unmentioned kind acts and expected male chivalry, I would like to play my family an original song in honor of Thelonius Luther Helbert Fueglein. I hope you take no offence to this because you truly do not know my skill of piano. I could be an amateur making a mockery, but I am not; I have played for a majority of my life and will play it for my family after dinner tomorrow in honor and in memory (already have it recorded). I hope Thelonius enjoys my song up there and I’m sure he’s proud of you for receiving so much positive affection from people who didn’t even get a chance to meet him.
