Happy 14th Birthday, Brisan! Ohhhh Mr. Bubbas! This is your 5th birthday celebrating your big day while you are in heaven. We hope you are having a big ol' party up there! Have you pushed your brother down the stairs again? Have you tried to tramp him in the clothes basket like you did Duncan? 🙂

Some have told us that these days would get easier as time goes on but really we just remember all the things that we are missing out on. Your presence brought us so much laughter and joy that our family just isn't the same without you or Parker here.

We will celebrate you today with a little “cacoons” at our favorite Chinese place! Our hearts will be heavy for you, son. We love you! We miss you immensely!

A couple weeks ago at church as we are studying Romans… we looked at what the message of Romans 8:28 WAS NOT.

Romans 8:28 – And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.

  • It doesn't mean all things that happen are good.
  • It doesn't mean God causes all things, including bad things, to happen to you.
  • It doesn't mean all things work out the way you want.
  • It doesn't mean everything is going to work out for everybody eventually.
  • It doesn't mean we can live any way we choose and God will fix our messes.

He will never allow a pain to be wasted in your life. All the pain and suffering will turn out for something good in the life of his kids.

All we have is hope. Keep smiling.

Happy 11th Birthday Parker!

Parker in Florida 2009
Today, January 8, 2017, we celebrate you Mr. Parker… AKA Mr. Stinky!

It would be your 11th Birthday today big guy. How's the party going up there?!?!?!

We love and miss you so very much!

For being your birthday in the month of January, there sure is a lot that happened this month in our lives. You came into this world in 2008 and went “home” in 2015. Although physically you are not here, it seems to amplify your passing even more sharing that commonality of your birth month with your passing.

We find ourselves wanting to give you a big hug, kisses and just love on you and Brisan.

That feeling never stops.

2 Years?

Coming up on 2 years on the 23rd this month when you joined Brisan on the “ultimate vacation package”, it reminds us how surreal the thought of knowing you and Brisan are in Heaven throwing down with Jesus! It gives us a reminder of the promises we have been given to not lose faith. There is no more suffering from Niemann-Pick Type C and all the rotten stuff that came along with NPC that abbreviated your lives on earth.

Me and mom frequently feel that same shock that you two are no longer physically here. You both left lasting impressions in our hearts and minds.

I am honestly having a super hard time writing all the things I want to write for this.

 

Let's Sing Happy Birthday to Parker today!

This video is a small clip from 1-10-2009. I love the picture at the end because it is sort of a “Celebration move” to cap it off!

Love,

Dad, Mom, Duncan, Rubee
