Maeve and Gid

Welcome to the website for Maeve and Gideon, put together by their friends and family. This website will serve as an ongoing memorial for the incredible people they were and continue to be in our hearts. We hope you will share your own memories and learn about the wonderful work that they’ve inspired with fellowships, funds, and art all in their name. They were both incredible and bright and we miss them every day.


Two Years On

Each April we ask if it is available to you to run/walk/roll a virtual 5K to remember Maeve and Gideon, donate to any of the funds and fellowships started in their names, and send us your photo to share at maeveandgideon [at]

Maeve loved to write letters. She sent them from around the world and they were often a delightful stream of conscious about anything and everything she was thinking, feeling, worried about, or delighted in.

Thank you to everyone who has sent in your own letters and stories, some shared here. We love them and we love you all for sharing them with us.
