FLOYDS KNOBS —
Winnie Green, owner of the Floyds Knobs Jazzercise, 3700 Paoli Pike, is happy to have the fundraiser at her studio.
“Hopefully, this reminds them that they aren’t alone, and that the community cares about them,” Green said. “We just want to be a blessing, even though we don’t know them. That’s what Jazzercise is. This place is good for our souls, and it’s more than working out.”
Green welcomes the public to come to the studio during class times to see the items and bid. She also welcomes the community to free classes until Sunday, which will be the last day for the silent auction.
The donations are from the creative ambitions of the Jazzercise members, and some include wreaths, twine-wrapped lightbulbs, a painting by a 13-year-old, and a teacup bird feeder. Nash displayed the bird feeder on a tree in remembrance of Kaden.
Halie Book recalled that once last year, Kaden woke from a nap asking if God would let him make a tree when in heaven. He wanted to make a dolphin too.
Kaden also assured his mom that Jesus would cure him from the cancer cells. He also reported vividly witnessing angels at his passing, and was coherent throughout.
“He said, ‘I want to sit up and looked around room.’ He said, ‘I see people,’ and he kept looking around, and then said, ‘I want to go to heaven right now.’ Right after that, he hiccuped, and God took him right then,” Halie said.
Halie said that she hopes other families who are experiencing similar struggles get to hear their story and find comfort because “he made a big splash in his six years. Give hope to other parents.”
“Kaden was passionate about everything. He was always smiling and happy, even with the leukemia, and I am thankful for that,” Halie said.
Halie welcomes other families to contact her through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
