Love for Laiken

Laiken Kenwood's Mother posted this video on YouTube tonight.

I listened to this tribute to Laiken last fall, just a couple of days before the Denver Marathon last October during a radio-thon fund raiser for Loma Linda Children's Hospital.

I listened to this during work and tears were streaming down my face. I couldn't stop them and I didn't care who noticed.

In many ways Laiken reminds me so much of Kelly in the way she lived her life joyfully while living with a disease that no one, let alone a child should have to live with.

Laiken had such a bright smile, loved her friends, loved her family above all.

When I ran the Denver Marathon last fall, Laiken's picture was pinned to the back of my singlet right next to the picture of Kelly.

Please take a few minutes to watch this nice tribute to Laiken.

Love and Light x 13 x forever...


  1. omg, Ross.

    I hadn't seen this before. And I'd almost forgotten that my voice was on there too.

    And now tears are streaming down my face.

    Thank you for posting this.

    Light and Love. For Laiken. For Kelly.


  2. Where is your voice in the video?

    I don't think anyone could watch or listen to this and not be touched by her life and courage.


  3. Ross,
