On June 29th, 2009, Crystal, Parker, and Haley Hewitt were in a severe car accident.  Crystal sustained major injuries to her back and almost didn't make it and Parker and Haley didn't survive the car crash.  They are both with our Heavenly Father.
Please continue praying for a full recovery for Crystal. And please pray for Crystal and Craig (along with the family and friends) broken hearts. 

We are so thankful for the love and support shown by so many friends and family.

If you would like to send a note of encouragement and prayer, please feel free to do so through our Caringbridge website.

Latest Journal Update

Tomorrow Morning!

I wanted to let you know that I will be on the radio tomorrow morning being interviewed by my counselor, Linda that I have seen for this entire journey that we have been on since Parker and Haley beat us to Heaven. She is starting a radio show that I am very excited about that's going to be every Saturday morning from 9-10am. The Radio Show is called, "Return to Joy". Tomorrow morning I will interview with her and so will another client, Ralph who has experienced loss with his wife. 

This is the station: 95.9 FM/1470 AM

This is a write up about the Radio Show, "Return to Joy" from Linda: 

If you or someone you know is struggling with grief following a loss, this program is for you!! Not everyone is comfortable attending a grief support group or a grief recovery program. If you find that being around other people is difficult, or if you don’t feel like going anywhere at all, we hope this radio program will help you begin your journeythrough grief and become a part of your recovery—right in the privacy of your own home…or maybe even your own bed!

We invite you to join us every Saturday morning from 9:00 –10:00

You can call in during the show at 803-799-8255, email us atjoyinthemourningcenter@gmail.com, or message us on Facebook at “Return to Joy Radio.”

I hope that you can listen in on the show tomorrow morning! 

Also, if you can, can you pray for my words to be reflecting on how God has helped us through this journey. I never want people to see "us" I want them to see Jesus. We give Him all the credit of why we are standing today. There is a song that I love and a few of the words are, "It's not about me, it's all about You." That's what we want. He has gotten us through, it wasn't from our own strength. Even though every minute sucks that Parker and Haley aren't here with us, we couldn't imagine going through this without our Faith. 

Craig was asked to of course be there to interview also, but he has a session tomorrow morning that was already scheduled. I would be freaking out to do something like this by myself, I just like him to always be there, but it does make me feel good to have Linda there and for her to be the one that is interviewing. I know I have said before, but I love Linda Gill! She is an awesome lady who is following God's will for her life in helping people like us going through a stinky circumstance. She started out as councilor and now is a good friend and our counselor. We love her so much and love the heart she has on helping people with grief. I believe that God sends us people to help us, and Linda is one of them. We appreciate her being a HUGE part of our journey. Please support her by listening in to this great "Return to Joy" morning show on Saturday mornings, start tomorrow morning!
