Dear Brianna,

You would be so very proud of us. Your dad and I are leaving in the morning for our first mission trip to the Dominican Republic. Your life here on earth has brought glory to God. We heard the message you brought with you for those short yet wonderful 28 months you were here with us. We think of you every single day, and "see" you in the beautiful nature that surrounds us. Just last week before bed I was walking Belina and there you were...the first lightning bug I saw of the season. Lighting the way, it was amazing because the lightning bug came out of the grasses, caught Belina's eye and she chased it down the street with the lightning bug bouncing off of Belina's nose. It was amazing.

I know you must be proud of your big sis too. It was quite an emotional moment to see Ashley receive her high school diploma. You taught her well too. Her plans are to start community college in the Fall. All because of you, her goal is to become a speech pathologist.

You taught us well little Bri. Big hugs and kisses to you. Forever in our hearts.


  1. May your mission trip be blessed and productive. Hope you post about it in the future.

    Congrats to Ashley on her graduation. She's a wonderful big sister and a daughter that has made her parents proud!

  2. Brianna's sweet life taught many so much! I am so glad you have visits in special ways with her each and every day. Please keep us posted on your mission trip. I jumped for joy this morning when I saw a post from you!

  3. Thinking of you. That is wonderful that you are going on a mission trip! Let us know how it goes

  4. Happy Father's Day, Jerry! I know your sweet precious daughter is smiling down on her daddy!
