This week weighs heavy on my heart. Thursday April 16th marks the second anniversary of the horrible events that took place at Virginia Tech. While I am not an official Hokie, I graduated from Radford, my blood will always run maroon and orange. I lived in Blacksburg, VA for six years and VT was a huge part of my life. My husband actually attended VT for the first part of his college career and was actually a VT cheerleader...no laughing. :)

While life continues to go on I don't want anyone to forget the special people that were lost that day. If you would like to learn more about the individuals on the list below you can read about them here. Please keep the family and friends of these individuals in your thoughts and prayers throughout this difficult week.
