Remembering Hope and Introducing Mr. Dave!

Halloween is always a special time of year for Pockets Full of Sunshine. October kicks off the holiday season which is always full of crafting, celebrations and lots of fun.

One celebration in particular is always near and dear to our hearts, and that is Hope’s Halloween Party. Hope was a very kind and talented adult with special needs who passed away several years ago. Halloween was Hope’s favorite holiday and her mother Nancy plans a party for the Rays in her memory each year.

They all look forward to dressing up, having fun with their friends, seeing photos of Hope and hearing stories about her from Nancy. All of the Rays also love to listen to Hope’s poetry which Nancy is kind enough to share with us each year. Hope was a very talented writer and illustrator!

This year Hope’s party was made even more special by the addition of a special musical guest, Mr. Dave!

Mr. Dave has been attending Pockets Full of Sunshine for the last few months and the Rays absolutely adore him and his guitar!

They have memorized most of his songs and he has even written a few special songs just for the Rays! A session that ends with singing and dancing from the Rays and Mr. Dave is ALWAYS a good one!
