What is/was your favorite show or movie to watch with your sibling? Book to read?
4th question of the ‘Be Positive’ Collection
Sophia Sarkar: My favorite movie to watch with Carter is a Lilo and stitch. I love when he starts singing the Hawaiian roller coaster song.
Garrett McKenzie: I like to read him Mr. Panda. It’s a book about a panda that makes donuts and it teaches you how to be patient. I also love to sit and watch Sofia the First with my sister. It’s her favorite show!
Matthew Moon: Jacob likes to watch Paw Patrol. I always watch with him. We read Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems.
Katie Di Ilio: Barney obviously! Of course, we also loved Shrek, Holes, and all the Disney classics. Our favourite books were The Hungry Caterpillar and anything Dr. Seuss!
Grey Chapin: Blair had many favorite TV shows to watch including The Doodlebops, The Wiggles, and High Five. While she loved all of these shows, Barney was her favorite. She loved all of the characters, excluding Riff the Dinosaur (we made sure to skip episodes with him), and enjoyed watching Barney and his friends go on different adventures. I loved sitting with Blair and watching Barney. Even though my family and I have probably seen each episode about ten times, the smile that the show puts on Blair’s face never gets old. Even today, a year and a half since I last watched Barney, I still get songs stuck in my head every once in a while.
Samantha Byers: I love to watch Frozen with Will because he still likes to sing “Let it Go” and he doesn’t talk as much as he used to and I like to hear his voice. I like to read Daniel Tiger books with Will because he gets very happy when we read them.

While our family always aimed to think positively about Blair’s illness, this is the only detail about the end of her life that came to my mind often in the years before her passing. Read More
