Dear Brian and Kimen,
Such wonderful news!  A baby girl to join your wonderful family!  What a blessing she will be to all of the family.So glad you are busy working forward Brian, you have come so far, it is truly remarkable and a gift of love from God and Kimen as they have made so much available for you to help and that is so encouraging for your family and everyone that cares about you.
So hard to believe how fast Jacob is growing!  He will be an awesome big brother and a huge help too Kimen!  As busy as you are and as full as life is everything will fall into place!  God is so good and his Blessings so very wonderful.  Praying all will work our well with Dr. Z and that it won't be long and your home will be sold so that you can move to a home that will be more comfortable for everyone.  Really happy to hear about Beau!  Thank you Kimen for always keeping everyone up to date with Brian's progress and all that is happening in the family.  So excited for all of you!  Love, Harvey and Elaine

Dear Brian and Kimen,
What wonderful, truly wonderful news this morning!!  Oh, I am so excited for the whole family.  What a precious gift from Heaven and to come at this time, when you are truly ready for the love of a tiny one in your home!  Yes, you do need a bigger home, one that will fit the whole family and all the needs just perectly.  Jacob will be such an awesome big brother, helping out in so many ways!  No wonder you seem to be glowing everytime i see you!
We could not be happiers and it is beautiful that you both have such large, loving families to help you along the way and surround the new baby Hess with all the love their hearts can hold.
Life is taking a new journey, one full of excitement and beauty.  Congratulations!  We hate to see you move but couldn't be happier for the reason that you are.  God is so good.  Your children will be blessed in knowing love from the inside out and what a challenge now to keep Brian working strong with his therapists!  No truer blessing than that of a child to work miracles.
Much love,
Harvey, Elaine and family

Dear Brian and Kimen,
What an awesome update!  There is so much going on in your family and what a joy it is to read about all the events, the special times spent with family and friends.  It is always a blessing to read all that is going on in your family and especially how Brian is doing.  All the therapy and help is truly wonderful and really praying for Brian's healing and for the trip to Chicago.  This is short as CaringBridge is not liking my computer either!

Dear Brian and Kimen,
CaringBridge really has changed alot!  It was so great to see the picture of Brian and Jacob in the pool!!  So awesome!  You stay so busy Kimen and it is always so wonderful to hear what is going on in life for Brian, you and Jacob.  It is so exciting to hear about the possible trip and the continued speech therapy.  So much is always going on in your life.  So many doors have been opened over the year and Brian's progress is a true testament of God's love and the love of his wonderful wife and family.  
It does sound like Jacob is a very busy young man and hard to believe he will be in the second grade.  The years have really gone by so fast.  Juggling life has to be quite a handful Kimen and you are truly doing a wonderful job with all that you do.  You are truly an example of a loving wife and mother.  Your faith and love of God is seen in all that you do.  Thank you for always taking the time to let people know how Brian is doing and how you and Jacob are doing too.  So many people care and perhaps like me have gotten swept up in the busy daily life and forgotten to email, forgotten to check in and write a hi on CaringBridge.  I will try and do better and I believe others will too.

Love to all of you,
Harvey and Elaine

Dear Kimen and Brian, I have never posted before, but I felt compelled tonight to do so. I went to Belaire and I remember Coach Hess bringing the boys to school when they were little. I've been following this site since the accident. I'm so glad you posted.... I was beginning to get worried about y'all!! I have not and will not stop praying for you all. You are both an inspiration. God bless you both and that precious little boy!!! Thanks for keeping us posted.

Dear Brian and Kimen,
I have been thinking of both of you so much today so just wanted to stop and write and say hi.  Life at times gets so hectic and full and it seems it passes so quickly at our age!  Praying you as well as Jacob are doing well during this cold cold winter we are having.  It has been a very unusual winter as our relatives in Lake Tahoe have seen more dust then snow and very little snow up on Salt Spring Island, a small island off of the coast of Vancouver.  We forget sometimes how blessed we are here in Louisiana where rain like tonight is so scarce in California.  Other relatives have been hit by the harsh snow and cold.  It seems the weather is just like some of your days.  Life is that way it seems where one farmer has no rain and one has too much.  Drawing strength from stories like this in the Bible is so important throughout life.  To watch you walking and talking at the candlelight service at your home Brian was like watching millions of prayers come true from the first day of your accident.  Patience now and the spirit of a sportsman will see you through those physical therapy days.  Always push on, always believe and always know that many are praying for both of you.   
Love,
Harvey, Elaine and family
