So Glad to see you yesterday Casey! I know that you recognized me from 3 years ago when I was a client there at FINR with you. The Lord has blessed me with such a miraculous and rapid recovery and I won't waste it! I swear you wanted to scream out my name when we saw each other yesterday and I cherished my conversation with Barry today. I just pray that your recovery is sped up so that we can be advocates for God's grace and healing power, which remains as strong today as it has ever been. I am walking talking proof that He still performs miracles and I know you will be too!

Time to enjoy the renewal that Spring brings each year!! We appreciate all the updates. Sorry we did not ever connect in Atlanta. We were in the middle of moving to Savannah. Shepherd is still a special place for us and we are glad you got back and could experience Pathways.

Welcome back, to your life that is!  I'm so glad to hear that you took some time off to re-connect!  Remember that God created the 7th day to rest!  
As always, I love to hear of Casey's progress and Brittany's success as well!
Love and prayers go out to all the Bicknells!

So glad to see you are doing so well.  We are all praying for you and know that God hears our prayers.  Continue with your great work.  Barry - I'm so glad to see you will be taking a few days off.  Much deserved, but most important, most needed by you.  Have a wonderful time with your wife and daughter.  God bless you all.

Barry, I think your decision to take some time off is absolutely great!!!  Maybe it will be good for C.J., in that he will not have total support and realize that there are many more things he really can do by himself.  You deserve this break!!!  Our prayers will continue for C.J.and your entire family as always!!!

It sounds like Casey is still making progress which is awesome!    As for you taking some time off ... I think that's a great idea.  Good for you and for your wife and daughter as well as for you and you know that Casey is in good hands. 

You've been so faithful and giving it 100% with helping Casey and some time away for a bit, I think will do you a world of good.

God Bless You, Barry, and your entire family as well.

Wow, it sounds like CJ has a lot to keep him busy while you spend some time with Kathy and your daughter. I will be praying for all of you as I'm sure it won't be easy for you. Hearing of CJ's progress is wonderful, thank you so much for keeping us all in the loop. Such a long road but God always has a plan and His timeframe just may be a bit different than expected. Much love to you all and your family , as well as Casey, are forever in my prayers and intentions. God bless.

God bless you CJ.  You are in our prayers daily.  We know how difficult your days are as we experience the same with our granddaughter.  Put all your faith in God and one day I know you will walk and talk again.  God bless,

Barry - please keep our granddaughter, Alexa, in your prayers.  She had two major surgeries one in November and emergency surgery on Dec 20th.  Its been a very difficult holiday season for us too.  Recovery has been very very difficult.... One day we too hope she may walk and talk.....You're a great dad....

Hi Casey,

We've all been thinking about you on this special day.  How much you love life and how much we love you. Four years and we're so happy with all the progress you've made and how your smiles make us smile. You have taught us what resolutions are all about. Your resolve - your iron will to stay strong, overcome and overachieve - yes overachieve because there were doubters who didn't believe you could come this far.  But you are full of surprises and no doubt 2014 will bring more!  We love you!

Good Morning Bicknell's,
May I say, you are the most endearing, strongest family I believe I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.  Hearing about how wonderful you are through my daughter's eyes was one thing, however meeting Barry and Brittany in person and seeing Casey again was another!!  Casey, when you looked at me in the eye, those beautiful blue eyes,  you looked directly into my soul.  I felt such a warm gentle connection yet as gentle as it was, it was also strong and reassuring, and left me with your positive energy.  I felt like you were letting Marlaina and I know you were getting stronger and missed us. Your hug that you gave Marlaina told it all as well!!!  Your love for life and the people around you is HUGE, I must tell you that you are my HERO:)  Please plant your Christmas tree and every Christmas that we can we want to visit you and watch you grow as strong as your new tree!!  Brittany, I told my story to your Dad and I can't tell you how you brought tears to my eyes as to the most wonderful sister any guy could have.  Your love just shines through.  I have wished and prayed many times that I could have been there for my brother. I would have been just like you, but I didn't get that chance.  I would have given anything to have it. I am so glad that you are there for him.  You are so strong, your family and friends must be so proud of you.  Your parents are amazing; as we all know there is absolutely nothing in life, nothing harder then what you have experienced.  No one can ever understand unless they have been through it.  May God give you all his love and compassion and strength and guidance along this journey to get Casey stronger everyday.  Barry, when you finish the gym please give me a shout.  With your help, I would like train Casey and get his muscles stronger!!  We can't thank you again for giving us your time and energy.  We can only imagine how every single second of life is a challenge, however you can say your doing it and much, much, much more.  You never give up and that is why you will succeed .........much more, and more and more!!
With Lots of Love and Affection,  Linda and Marlaina Fruggerio
