Remembering Avielle

Today is Avielle Richman's 7th birthday... Another beautiful little soul gone too soon. Avielle was an only child and the light of her parents' lives. Her dad Jeremy and mom Jennifer describe Avielle as a girl who loved life and was willing to try just about any new adventure. Whether it was Barbies or superheroes, kung fu or cooking, Avielle enjoyed whatever she was doing.

When she grew up, Avielle wanted to be a writer, an artist, a spy and of course a fairy princess. She loved to play soccer, fish, ride horses and go swimming, and like her own unique name, she assigned different names to everything she loved.

Jeremy and Jennifer refuse to let their daughter's light stop shining last December at Sandy Hook Elementary. In Avielle's memory they have created The Avielle Foundation with a goal of preventing violence through education. You can visit their website to learn more about the foundation and Avielle and visit their Facebook page here for updates.

Happy Birthday, Avielle! We will never forget...
