2 Weeks ago today Parker went home to see Jesus and Brisan. I like to say he is experiencing the ultimate vacation package. We can only imagine the joy he is having with no more Niemann-Pick and his earthly inabilities that prevented him from experiencing a typical childhood. They only have a childhood to live a lifetime is a very true and stark reality now that we’ve come full circle. What can we really say other than “did this really happen”? We love you Parker! No words can accurately describe how we are feeling right now. All this in under a year. Who would have thunk it.

Timeline of Events
Parker passed peacefully at home on Friday, January 23rd around 1:55pm. We were surrounded by our friends and family during this time.

Many of you are aware that on Aug. 31st we had a celebration to honor Brisan which normally would have been a big shindig for his birthday. Instead we had food, live music, and a “drive” for donations of Kleenex boxes to honor him. Our goal was 250 boxes to give to Children's Mercy Hospital to help get rid of the sandpaper we had to use during Brisan's homecoming March 3-4th. As Jennifer had stated, “No one should have to use sandpaper to wipe their nose after their kid dies”.
