Sandra Price, welcome! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
My PA son is 9 years old. I told him about your daughter's death.
I wanted to let you know that our family's thoughts and prayers are with you.
As mommyofmatt mentioned, there are several other threads running on this board discussing your daughter's death, and your post in this thread may get missed because of the title of the thread.
Most long time members simply ignored the person who posted this because we often get hit by trolls that have no interest in being educated, even by people like you that have experienced a heartache that none of us can begin to imagine.
Last week even, we were hit by yet another one and it was particularly disturbing because your child had just died.
If you check out the Main Discussion part of the board, there is a thread running entitled In Memory of Gina and it has some thoughts in it about what we, as the PA.com community would like to do to help you with your efforts.
I understand you needing to educate people, but honestly, some of them I just think are hopeless and this person is probably one of them.
Again, our family's thoughts and prayers are with you.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Sandra...My deepest sympathies to you and your family. I live in South Charlotte and I have started a group for parents of food allergic children in the area. Please contact me if you need assistance in any efforts in Gina's memory. I would be honored to help you out in any way possible.
Again, my prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.
Robin

Sandra,
No words I can say, will tell you how sorry I am. No words I say will make you feel any better. Hopefully through our actions we can help you. I started another thread asking everyone to contact the restaurants in their area. What else can we do?
Many of us wrote letters to our Senators and Assemblymen trying to get the FALCPA Act passed. I am sure most of us would be willing to write in support of "Gina's Law" requiring restaurants to post signs. Please let us know what we can do.
Please accept my deepest condolences and know that your daughters tragedy touched my heart and will not be forgotten. I applaud you in your efforts to make sure it does not happen again.

Would it be okay if I re-directed people to this thread so that the troll doesn't get any more notification?

(Please note, I am not TELLING anyone what to do, just thought the posts that have followed Sandra's might be better in the link noted above rather than this horribly entitled one).
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
