Dear Sarah,

I hope today was a special day for your family.  Vinny is such a special child!  His strength and love for life is something that deserves to be celebrated.  Every.  Single.  Day.  It's bittersweet to to think that today is a day for you to reminisce about the good moments that are now the memories you cherish.  Thank you for continuing to post and for allowing us to share the specialness of your child with you.  Your family is in my daily thoughts. 

Love,

Hi Sarah,

It was really great to meet you, Charlie & Desi as well! Isabella had so much fun with the inflatables:) Thanks for the encouragement too! Sorry we didn't see you today - we ran from the hospital today right after radiation so I could make some more "nutritional liquid" for Bella before my doctor's appointment. I see Desi is running cross country - 27 minutes is a great time!

Take Care,
Tonya

Sarah - I understand that you might think that people have gotten on with their lives and don't want to know what's going on with your family now that Vinny is in Heaven.  However, I, personally still get a great deal of inspiration out of your writing, and I pray for your family regularly.  Vinny really touched my heart, and I doubt I will ever forget him, and I never even met him personally!  The emotional depth of your entries, both before and after Vinny left us, has made me feel like I know him and your family well.  That being said, if you feel so led, please do continue writing.  I think I can speak for lots of people who have gotten to know Vinny and your family over the years in that we enjoy and are inspired by your writing, and it is a joy to "watch" Desi grow up as well.

Our prayer for you, your family, and Home

Grant them peace, most precious gift of all
Keep the worried world far away and small
When they return, may quiet fill their souls,
Dearest Lord, keep them safe within it's walls.

May the stone be cool beneath their feet.
The canyon breezes circle soft and sweet
When darkness falls, the stars and opal moon
Find them wrapped in each other, ever warm.

May it be a refuge for their love,
A harbor for their deepest prayer.
May they come to flourish in the grove,
Grow ever nearer to You there.

Many a burdened friend in their company rises,
A heavy heart is soon released to fly.
May their table be blessed with laughter and with grace
And by the comfort of kinship be surprised.

May it be a refuge for their love,
A harbor for their deepest prayer.
May they come to flourish in the grove,
Grow ever nearer to You there.

May the cold wind blow far from their front door
May the winter rains never bring them harm
May their hearthfires burn throughout the night
Grant them peace until morning's perfect light.

May it be a refuge for their love,
A harbor for their deepest prayer.
May they come to flourish in the grove,
Grow ever nearer to You there.

Hold fast to Hebrews 6:19 ⚓️ 

Sending you love and hugs

Dear Sarah,


Your posts give me strength, understanding and hope as we are scared and frightened by our future. Emma has relapsed with Rhabdo, found out on May 30. We were devastated to say the least but now we are six weeks into treatment and strength and survival mode have set in. Thank you for your continuos fight for our kids, your giving and caring heart! I think of you often and pray for your strength to continue.


Just wanted to make you aware of her situation. Hope to hear from you soon.


Sincerely,

Amanda Everett & Emma Thornton
