Remembering David with an act of kindness

This is a photo of our friend David. David, his wife Regina, and their children, were part of our support group at Fair Oaks for many years.

I have something very special to share with you today. Regina has asked us to mark our calendars for David’s birthday, March 7, to remember to show some act of kindness to others in honor of her loving husband. We realize that many of you didn’t know David, and that it’s only one day, but we hope to show that we care for one another, and we can do our part to make this world a better place. Our hope is that the more people that read this, the more acts of kindness will be shared. David was a loving and gentle soul and his wife and family believe this would bring him great joy.

When I first heard about Regina’s request it reminded me of two qualities I’ve seen time and again amongst my friends in the Parkinson community that are so special – kindness and compassion. Regina, thank you for inviting us to honor and remember David.

One of the ways David and Regina always amazed us is how often they would get out and about even after David needed his wheelchair to get around. They traveled to other states to visit family and went on a cruise. Locally, they attended Fair Oaks support group events, and Café Fairfax as often as possible. Regina continues to help her friends in the Parkinson community in all kinds of ways. An awesome, inspiring couple.

How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it.
