Oh My Stars || In Loving Memory of Esther Grace Earl

I’ve been wanting to make a video of Esther since I read her book and I finally found this song and since her name meant star, I thought it would be good to make a video to!! Thank you to Mrs.Earl for letting me use their home videos (watch them here: https://www.youtube.com/user/wayneandloriearl) and to Esther for uploading such funny, thoughtful YouTube videos and for being the awesome girl that she was!! Rest In Awesome, Esther!!

This is a beautifully edited video!  I watched it through my tears and smiles <3

Alright now that I have time to make a proper post, I want to let you know that Helen and I’s design is on DFTBA for a limited time. I’m not sure how many shirts were left over from LeakyCon, it might be 4 and it might be 80 but if you like them, now is the time to buy! If they sell out quickly or can’t fill all the orders they get, who knows? Maybe they will be available again one day. You should tell me if you choose to buy one, I would love to know or see a picture of you in it unless that is weird to you.
Get them here for a limited time! $20 a piece

Your shirt design is awesome&#8212;people at LeakyCon loved them &lt;3  Thank you so much for creating this beautiful work to help TSWGO and make a difference for kids with cancer and their families :)

I do hope that when the day comes, whether in 1, 10, or 100 years, I don’t want you to think of me and feel sad. Even now, while I’m alive, don’t think of me and say, “Poor girl. It’s sad she’s sick”. Not that you do that. Think of me and think of the sunshine, and how I looove animals, and drawing something nice.

Esther Day Gathering - 2014!
Today, I managed to pull off a gathering I’d been organising for a few days in memory of Esther Earl and in honour of Esther Day. For Irish Nerdfighters! We had it today, August 6th, three days after the original date, and it went really great! People brought infinite baked goods and we played Werewolf and Ninja and just laughed and talked and basically had an awesome day - we also had a different kind of our traditional “circle time” where we talked about the friends and family that we loved and were grateful for. I was also selling t-shirts and keychains for an Irish charity, CanTeen, who earn funds to support teens with cancer. It was a great day overall and I was so glad to be able to organise something in honour of Esther (with of course a lot of help from some of my great friends!)
So yeah, do you guys think you could make John Green find the thing?

This is seriously awesome!
