We can't thank our sweet friend Tricia Forman enough for everything she did to create 'Grayson's Place' at the Sheridan Public Library this past winter, 2016. A special thanks not only to her, but her husband Adam Manship who built the storage unit and puppet theatre you will see in the pictures below. It truly is beautiful and full of so many amazing items that were generously donated by many local places here in Indiana as well as other states, be sure to check out all the donors below and check out their pages. Grayson's Place will hold a special place in my heart as Grayson and I often visited the library while we lived in New Jersey, Westfield and Sheridan.
We hope this area brings joy to other children in the community and for those kids that can read they may ask, "Who is Grayson Dunham?", as his name is on everything that was donated to his space.
Brent and I are forever grateful for so many amazing people that have come into our lives creating lasting friendships and to help us keep Grayson's name alive. We are excited to bring Graysie to the library and share this special place with her in remembrance of her big brother.
