Anniversary Date ~ 6 years

June 29th 2009 is a day that drastically changed our family's life...on this day six years ago Crystal was taking Parker and Haley to pick blueberries in Lexington. In route there, a truck was going way to fast for conditions and collided with Crystal's vehicle. Crystal suffered critical injuries to her back almost leaving her paralyzed...but Parker and Haley went to be with Jesus in heaven.

There is not a day that goes by that we don't think about Parker and Haley. We talk about them all the time with their little sister and brother, Ellington & Emerson. They know exactly who Parker & Haley are and they love them with all their heart.

I wish everyone had the opportunity to know Parker and Haley. They were loving, sweet and fun to be around.

If you did have the opportunity to know Parker and Haley, we would love for you to share a memory of them. ❤️

~ Love the Hewitts

I did not have the pleasure of knowing Parker or Haley, but I have come to know them through this site, your sharing of their preciousness. Looking at pictures of Ellington and Emerson is almost like seeing them because there is so much of those two in these two! I have had the pleasure of meeting Emerson at Walmart and hope to get to meet Ellington some day. I have cried with you and laughed with you and rejoiced with you. Thank you for being willing to open your lives to us, proving that there is a WAY even through the worst nightmare.

My memories are of Parker and Haley at the soccer field. Parker always seemed very serious about the game and seemed to love having his dad coach his team. (Emma was more interested in talking to her teammates while running around behind the ball - ha!) Parker would sometimes run over to Crystal and Haley for a drink of water or a snack. The girls would usually be spread out on a picnic blanket watching the boys. I remember Haley wearing soccer cleats and bringing a little pink soccer ball once. Crystal told me she couldn't wait to start playing like her big brother. A week or two before the accident we ran into your whole family at Moe's and you invited Emma to come out and play soccer with you that Thursday. Brian took her and she had a great time playing with y'all. She had not played that season, but started thinking she might want to play again in the Fall. The accident was the next week and we were all devastated by the news. Emma told me then she didn't want to play soccer anymore because she only wanted to play if she was on Coach Craig's team. Praying hard for all of you today as you remember and mourn your sweet babies.

I didn't personally know Parker & Haley, but I knew of them through their daddy as I worked with Craig a few years at the State Credit Union. He always had pictures of them in his office and they were adorable then and still adorable today as you both have kept their memory alive. I did see the whole family out and about after I had left the Credit Union, and I wanted to pinch them because they were so cute and anyone could tell they were so close and well loved and behaved. I have enjoyed all your posts over the years and comments of others so yes - they are special and still very much alive in Heaven with their Friend Jesus and their Heavenly Father. I can see Parker running around and probably up to a few antics while Miss Haley is dancing and prancing around stealing everyone's heart. Love and blessings to your family.

My grandchildren were the same ages and in daycare with Parker and Haley. Parker was always quiet around me and just shared that sweet smile of his. Haley and Davis were together and if I went at unscheduled times to pick Davis up, Haley always quizzed me to make sure it was okay. So cute. I see them having such a happy carefree time in Heaven.
