Dear Rob and Sarah, Jonah and Eli, Thank you for your updates. Its nice to hear how you all are doing. I can say from experience (not from losing a son, but from loosing my nephew at a young age) the first year anniversary is really hard. Glad to hear you all went away!! The idea of a tattoo is such a great way to honor our loved ones ( my family all have shamrocks with the #7 on them) it reminds me every minute of the day of my nephew. I will be honored to sponsor you in any way I can. Your Angel Isaac is watching over you and protecting you and your family.

Thanks Rob for sharing-so honest and heartfelt.  You mentioned that Isaac's classmates and friends talk about him...I just thought I would share with you and Sarah that just the other day, I was asking Josiah about his Milleniam Falcon lego set and he was telling me about some of its features but remarked on how Isaac's Milleniam Falcon had different way cool features.  Josiah did not know Isaac personally, nor did I, but Josiah thought about Isaac a lot and admired him from the things I shared about him.   He prayed for him and thought about him and still does think about him, as do I.  May you be given comfort and strength for your continued journey together with Sarah, Jonah and Eli.

Thank you for sharing. I often find myself thinking of you and your family and wondering how life is going. I pray for you every time your family comes into my thoughts (which I said is quite often). Although we don't know each other I still have Isaac's sweet smile planted in my heart. Prayers for you all!

I often wonder how people who haven't lost a child to cancer, (or lost a child to anything,) feel when they read this. How they feel when I write things about my child who lost his life to brain cancer also. Because, when I read your Journal, It is raw, deep heart wrenching , to say the least. I can identify with each emotion that you explain. I can feel it as if I was the one writing it. 

For the life of me, I can't seem to wrap my brain around why 46 children are diagnosed with this evilness everyday. I want to know why. Is it our government? Is it the food we eat. Should I just let it go and try as hard as I can to move on? I want answers. But, I know I will never get them. I know far to many children that have cancer. Or, are gone. Very few, that are still with us.

I guess what I am trying to say is. I am angry. I am sad. I am confused. I hurt for you and your family. I hurt for me and my family. I do believe with all of my heart that we will see our boys again. I believe that they are in the arms of Jesus. I also believe that they watch over us. 

Praying for you and your family. I pray that I will dream of my son and that you will dream of yours.Praying for peace for all of you and for all of us.

God Bless,

Thanks, Rob, for this note.  The GC nursing scholarship is a beautiful tribute to Isaac and it is special that Leslie is the first recipient.  I've been feeling a heaviness for you all, thinking that it was about now that everything changed again for the worst.  Our memories always go back to innocent days -- when all was good.  And then reality hits in the gut.  Thankfully, love is binding -- Isaac will always be remembered.

The Goshen College Tribute article is a lovely tribute to a brave and caring family. Your generosity and concern for others carries forward the good works and hope that Isaac would surely have contributed to the world.

May peace rescue you from endless pain beyond description.

Thank you for putting the link to that great review of Gravity. I was touched by the inclusion of Sandra Bullock's character having lost a 4 yr. old dtr, but I also missed the metaphor of grief and how it feels when one losses a child  (having lost my son). You and your family on my heart. Take Care.
