Happy Birthday Kristin,
I know it has been several months since I wrote on your site, but this has been a very difficult and busy year for our family. Abby has been fighting brain cancer for more than a year. This has been very hard and all of us have to stay close to the Lord for help and strength every day. Abby’s birthday is October 23rd and we hope to make it a very special day for her. Aunt Amy told me today that Abby has asked that presents she gets this year go to the hospital because she has lots of things and some of the children there don’t have very much.
Shelly wrote that Uncle Rich and Aunt Laura had a beautiful, healthy baby girl on September 13th and named her Sienna. She is very sweet and I know for sure that you would have held her at every opportunity and been very gentle with her. On our refrigerator I still have the picture of you, smiling happily and holding baby Abby.
When Haley has her baby soon, you will become a second cousin and grandpa and I will be great-grandparents.
We miss you and all our loved ones who have gone on before us so very much.
Taryn, Amber and Cheyenne we keep you in our prayers.
Grandpa and Grandma
