A Father’s Ride-Day 2

This entry was posted in Matthew and Andrew Foundation

Day 2 of the journey will be the 87 miles from Oklahoma City, OK to Bristow, OK. The plan today was to dedicate the ride to Mario Aguilar, an 18 month old boy battling HLH. Unfortunately, we received the news this morning that Mario lost his battle to HLH last night. We are dedicating web traffic analyzer
today’s ride to the memory of Mario Aguilar. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

    That was a very moving message. I’m sure Mario’s family is comforted by the knowledge that so many people are thinking of Mario today and praying for them. Safe travels, friend.

    Your efforts are truly an inspiration. To be subject to such a painful tragedy and yet push forward to help those who are now battling this disease and those who are yet known. This is the human compassion at it’s BEST. My sympathies to you and your family.

    To Doug, Rinae and Anthony: I know this won’t replace the loss of Annie, but I hope it brings some peace, some comfort and the strength back into your lives. Our thoughts are with you – Skeets and family

    No good words to say…hope you had a great ride today. I’m sure it was emotional. You have a lot on your shoulders, in your heart and on your mind during this ride…be safe. My heart hurts for Mario’s family.
