Mrs. Cahill shares Red Glasses with grandkids and her girlfriends of 70 years.

Much of what’s valuable in life, including life itself, isn’t earned. ….and that certainly rings true about good friends. Our son Michael and Carl Jandernoa became good friends in college. The circle of friendship widened through parent weekends, marriages and the gift of loving children. We learned of sweet & adorable Audrey’s passing and the Red Glasses movement and how it has amazingly spread far and wide keeping Audrey’s dynamic, loving & joyful spirit alive. Live Boldly, Love Big. Pass it on.

Our grandkids, who live nearby in Western Springs, Illinois, received a pair of Red Glasses and occasional packages wrapped in the “Pass it on” paper. The kids and I watched Audrey’s mom, Kelly’s inspiring video and discussed the importance of making this message your own..

Some good friends were also made during other life transitions , such as in the year 1951, when a group of 5 year old kindergarten girls from River Forest, Illinois, began a life-long friendship.
So now it’ 2021….This summer found us celebrating the “1946 gals”. I put on my Red Glasses for this fun and enthusiastic group of 75 year olds, explained RGM.  Of course, it was met with amazement and applause as they opened their gifts wrapped in “Pass it on” paper. Each woman was deeply touched and eager to learn more.

Live Boldly, Love Big, and Pass it on is awesome to embrace at EVERY AGE! My kindergarten pals agree.

Thank you Kelly, Carl the Jandernoa’s and their good friends for expanding this incredible mission around the globe as we lovingly remember, always, dearest Audrey Lou.
