Once again, thank you all so much for your love, support, and prayers. Our grief is never ending but inspirational times like this give us a renewed sense of purpose. Remembering and honoring Maia with a toy drive started by her big brother, Marcus, is such a heartwarming and amazing experience. We're so blessed that we get the chance to share our story while making a difference and giving back to the community. 
Thank you all for being a part of our journey!


  1. This is very useful information on this event and hope you enjoyed a lot. Couple of months ago, booked a beautiful event space San Francisco and arranged my cousin’s birthday party. It was a grand event and we had good time.
