Paige Marquez, who died at age four from a rare tumor, wound up linked to Christian Stehlik, not in life but in death, when her family pulled together and raised the needed funds to help for Christian's cremation costs. Christian, 16, died last week of neuroblastoma. Both fought hard to survive for their families. Christian left behind scores of poetry to remind us all what life is about.
Services are announced. See earlier story.

This story is proof of how connected we all truly are. This economy can make us feel like withdrawing and becoming isolated. Rather, to read this story is to see Paige, Christian and both families honored. Thank you for absolute proof, Diana, of what staying engaged and in community really means. This is incredibly inspiring to me.
