We are so grateful for the outpouring of love and support for Maeve and Gideon from the people they played and worked with and from the institutions where they went to school and worked. Here are a few, and any that aren’t represented here please reach out to us directly and we will include them
Gideon's Garden at RFK Memorial Stadium at East Capitol and 24th streets in Washington D.C. is a memorial space in front of the stadium where Gideon kicked the final soccer ball of the last professional game played in the stadium's history. Gideon played soccer at "The Fields at RFK", next to the stadium that was dedicated to his grandpa on January 19, 1964, and which Maeve worked hard to rededicate as a global center for democracy and civic education. Thanks to Skip Strobel for care and maintenance of the garden.
RFK Human Rights
RFK Human Rights dedicated an ambulance in April 2020 to the Italian Red Cross in Florence. Thanks to Federico Moro.
Gideon's Friendship Rock
Gideon's Friendship Rock was dedicated July 2nd 2021 in the Foodprints garden at Watkins Elementary School where Gideon and Gabriella went to school and Maeve served as PTA president. The dedication reads, “Sit, Play, Learn, Wonder, Remember.” The stone is from the Piedmont in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, where Gideon loved to hike and swim in the Thornton River with his friends. It sits in a vegetable garden where his friends play and grow food from seed. The stone is a symbol of the community’s everlasting love of Gideon, and we invite everyone who misses him to visit and spend time there. Made possible by Liz and Ty Voyles.
Binary stars are two stars where one revolves around the other or they both revolve around a common center. 6438604 - Lacerta are named after Gideon and Maeve. Thanks to Gail O'Hara
Brick at Roberta's House
Roberta's House is a non-profit community organization in Baltimore City and is a safe place where children, teens and adults discover that they are not alone in their grief. Children with their families share their feelings, memories and experiences in an atmosphere of acceptance with the love and support of trained volunteers. Maeve's and Gideon's brick appears on the walkway to Roberta's House. Thank you to Flannery McArdle for this beautiful dedication.
If you would like to share any other tributes please let us know. Our favorite is taking a cue from them:
Throw your arms wide open and give a big toothy smile and warm tight hug to anyone who enters the room and exclaim, genuinely and with abundant enthusiasm, how happy you are to see them.
