    This is so sad and beautiful to hear. I lost my son Seth to the cure for his malignant brain tumor and I can still only feel flatness. It has been 10 years. Together you all will survive, wishing you hope.

    You are all remarkable and inspirational. My heart goes out to you. I know the deep grief you feel is not only emotional but physical. I think of Sally often and as promised I light a candle for her every day. I am sure each day you wonder how you can make it through. Your positive determination is the best and hardest myou can do.

    I wish you a Christmas filled with love and courage. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. We miss Sally as well.

    Please let us know how you are doing.

    Hi Matt and Nicole,

    I admire your families bravery to share your feelings and smile. Your words are loving and a testimony to the meaning of “Together”. Thank you for sharing your feelings, it is moving to witness your Love.

    I am running a race on behalf of my 9-year old friend Felicia who is going through chemo, and I would like to run for Sally as well. May I incorporate a sunflower into the logo for this event in Sally’s honor?
    I thought of Sally as I wondered what I could do to bring awareness to childhood cancer and help Felicia, my answer is to run 100 miles on March 9th under 24 hours. The campaign is called FELICIA For Every Life Impacted Community In Action. My goal is to raise money for her and awareness for childhood cancer.

    It would be an honor to run with Sally’s sunflower as I train and race, may I?

    What message can I deliver about childhood cancer?

    I love you Nicole for your smile and joy. I love you Matt for your devotion to your family and exemplary love of your wife. I love your children for their inocesance and kindness.

    Thank you for inspiring me to #belikeSally

    As Christmas nears I think of you (the Kabel Family) often and say a prayer that you can still find joy in this season although you are grieving the loss of your sweet Sally. Matt, describe you life without Sally so well that I can tell that Sally is really watching over you, Nicole and the boys. She is your special guardian Angel. I love angels and have many on my tree but there is one that really reminds me of Sally. It’s a little blond haired angel hanging onto a star. When I look at her I will pray to Sally for all of you. God bless and may you have a Blessed Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

    Matt, you and Nicole are the most amazing people I have ever met. Your beautiful sharing of Sally’s incredible journey, though short and painful, has inspired so many of us. May you continue to feel the prayers and support of all those she – and you – have touched. I hope this becomes a book some day, to inspire future generations. God bless.
