There were hundreds of visitors, phone calls, Facebook messages as well as numerous texts. I was in no state of mind to respond to anyone. However, I texted the blue heart emoji 💙as a way to let everyone know that I received their love. The blue heart became my signature response when my family and close friends wanted to see if I was ok. I started giving out little blue glass hearts as a way to keep everyone connected to Asher...
Now, for the name of the foundation. Forever Frosty was Asher's hashtag (#) on Instagram. After a holiday story time when Asher was five years old, he wanted this little polar bear on a display rack. He begged and carried on then he cried and cried all the way home until he finally fell asleep in the car. The next day, I went back to the bookstore to get that little bear to give Asher for the first night of Hanukkah. Asher was delighted and named him Poley. The next year he received Mommy, then Pappy, then... Asher and I loved polar bears ever since. We planned to see polar bears together in their natural habitat. I went to Canada alone two years after his passing.
