The Brightest Star in the Sky Silent Auction

I have some busy little bees surrounding me. The most busy little bees in the world. Somehow, they have managed to throw together an amazing event for Ronan. I am beyond moved, inspired, and touched by this amazing community I live in. We are so thankful for all of the love and support surrounding us. I know first hand what an amazing little boy Ronan was, but many of you don’t. I feel compelled to carry on his story and let the love I have for him, live through all of you. The way you have accepted him into your lives, like he was one of your own brings tears to my eyes. I will never be able to thank you enough. Please check out this event; as I know it is going to be amazing and one of many to come. Thank you to everyone who is donating and pulling this together. Together, we can make sure Ronan’s spirit shines on forever.

  1. Maya, you have wonderful friends and family. Thank you for sharing this photo of Ronan, he is so adorable. Read your blog and see you are having a horrendous time. Actually its amazing to see you make an enormous effort to be “normal” even though there is no normal for you.
    Sending you prayers, cyber hugs, to all of you and special prayers for Ronan. Can’t go to the event (live in the Northeast) but will send some money.

  2. I am so bummed that I will miss this event. I will be coming to town just two days later. Which fund do you prefer my donation go to? I would love to meet you one day Maya. We could do that Craig Ferguson awkward pause or mouth organ. The mouth organ thing might be kind of weird. The awkward pause would be my choice.

  3. awesome! i sent a check to the foundation that hasn’t been cashed but hopefully it made it there! his video made me so sad 😦 what a sweet little boy!

  4. Hi Maya….I will actually be in town from San Diego visiting friends in Paradise Valley (I think they live close to the Biltmore). We already purchased tickets and plan on going to the event. i am so happy that it is falling on the same weekend that we will be in town. Thinking of you tons.

  5. Maya… I bought 2 tixs. I’ll be there.
    thinking of you and Rockstar Ro!

  6. You truly have amazing friends who are pulling together for amazing you & amazing Ronan. A donation is coming your way but I truly wish there was more I could do. Big HUGS!

  7. MAYA,
    I would be honored to attend this fundraiser. I have something very special to donate. Please let me know who I need to talk to work out the details. Also, if there is anything else I can do to help I would be honored to!
    Big Hugs,

  8. Maya you are one of the most remarkable women I have ever seen. I am inspired to be a better person because of you. You have raised the bar for us all. For your strength, your love, and your dedication to your family. I hope you find peace in the love of your family and friends and the strangers that have never met you that love you and Ronan and the rest of your family.

  9. Maya,
    What a beautiful & special photo of Ronan. I’m writing because I’m wondering if there is any way that people not from Phoenix (like Longview & Kelso) can participate in the auction. I know lots of us would love the opportunity. Can you ask the organizers? Love, Sue B.
