So much has happened the last several weeks that it will be a bit before I can update the blog. We just got back from visiting family in Texas and I've been in the hospital so things are hopefully going to get back to some sort of normal soon. I'm still in the 'numb' stage of my grief. Haven't really had a good cry yet even though I would like to... sometimes the tears just come out of no where. I'll post more later. Keep checking back as I have posts from September on up to journal about. Again... thank you for the continued prayers for our family. We will need them more as the weeks go by and people go back to their lives and we are left to mourn alone.

You are never left to mourn alone. People may go back to their lives but never out of reach for you when you need someone. Even when you think you are alone there is always someone there willing to listen or hug you when you need it or even when you don't. Prayers to you and your family.

You are in our continued prayers and will not mourn alone, although no one knows how difficult it truly is for you. As you post your feelings and memories of Oliver, we will pray for you and your family. It is so sad and hard to go on to a life without these dear little boys, and sometimes so overwhelming that my heart feels like it is breaking, and then we pray, remember what a gift we were given. More prayers for a cure for this devastating tumor, that other families will not have to go through this.EVER. Love to all of you.

I leave one of your messages open on my computer so I remember your family EVERY day in thoughts and prayers. Ollie's life ministered to many people and will continue to do so as you share in your grief journey. May God continue to show you his Grace and his Comfort and Understanding.

Stacy,
You are not alone! There are people out there who don't even know you, myself included, that think & pray for your family all the time. It must be hard to feel so alone. I pray God will wrap His arms around you right now & comfort you in the way that only He can. You & Ollie & your family are such an inspiration to me, and I can honestly say from the bottom of my heart that you have touched my life forever. Keep fighting; I will not forget you from day to day.

Love & hugs & His PEACE,
Kindra Hook (Allen student)

Stacy, you are never, never alone. Even if we are not physically there with you to give you all a hug, we are here for you - to listen, and to cry with you. I think of Ollie every day and his awesomeness, and pray for your strength and courage through your challenges.
Hugs, prayers and love,
