Real children, real healing, real hope


I wanted to get the message out about “Wings of the Superstitions” an event being held in Arizona near Phoenix at the Superstition Mountain Museum between 1 and 4 pm on Sunday, November 23rd, 2014.  This event marks the 3rd anniversary of the plane crash that took the lives of my 3 young children and their father.

Attached is an article with information about the many family friendly activities being held at this free event. We are expecting between 2-3000 people in attendance that day. 

The museum has graciously given me a beautiful plot of land which sits on a knoll above the museum building and looks upward adjacent to the mountain (and crash site).  The purpose of the plot of land will be to place a memorial sculpture there.  Sculptor Louis Longi of Laguna Beach is an accomplished artist, and has donated his time and expertise for this memorial.  Louis has several public works of art displayed throughout Southern California and will be unveiling his prototype at the event.  We will be raising funds to cover the cost of the sculpture which is estimated at $68,000.  To Donate for the memorial sculpture go to the Superstition Mountain Museum website.   Donate buttons on this website will benefit Wings of Life exclusively.  We will also be raising money for “Wings of Life” a 501 (c) (3) non-profit that I started to help disadvantaged children.

Imagine a tragic plane crash in Arizona on Thanksgiving Eve.  Three beautiful young children and their father are killed and taken from this earth.   It happened to Karen's family in 2011.  Out of the ashes of the wreckage along with unimaginable loss and and life still exist.  Wings of Life is born from this tragedy.

“Those who are sad now are happy.  Because God Will Comfort them…..Those who want to do right more than anything else are happy, because God will fully satisfy them.  Let us think about each other and help each other to show love and do good deeds.  There are times when we are called to give money to people who will never say thanks, to forgive those who won’t forgive us, to come early and stay late when no one else notices.  Lift up our eyes Father, that we might see our world as you see it.  Help us respond as you respond to the hurts around us.”  ~ Max Lucado, God’s Inspirational Promise Book.

I want to speak from the heart for a moment on the Superstition plane crash. Today the NTSB issued its final report. That you will get on the news. Why did this story become such a personal crusade for me? It's one of those stories that literally brought me to tears. Karen Perry lost all of her children in that crash. It happened on Thanksgiving Eve 2011. A night many of us were focused on gathering with family. At that same moment, Karen was losing hers. Like all of you, I was devastated by the cruel loss. We have 3 children roughly the age of Karen's kids. It just hit me like few stories have. I kept thinking - that could have been us. It was too close, too personal. Getting to know Karen over these 2 years, her strength has been an inspiration. Every time I see the Superstitions, I think about it. And how life can turn in a moment. It still haunts me...
