We sent a brand-spankin'-new video iPod, called an iTouch, iThink, to a kid, Jacob or Coby Bennett, who was one year ahead of you at JPDS.
He was in Jake's second grade class. He is now at Children's Hospital because he is sick. I hope watching movies and listening to music on the iPod helps him as he goes through his chemotherapy.
I was thinking about riding my bike and dropping it off myself, but I am a little maxed out on sad, partly because of Barry dying, and I didn't really know how walking into a hospital would feel.
This picture of Coby and his brother reminds you of who?
A lot of our friends, like Linda and Sid, know Coby and his family well. I know he'll be okay, but I am sure this is hard.
