Life is so Precious!!

One of the other reasons we headed to Utah was because our little angel niece Tegan was just diagnosed with Cancer. She was at the Children's Primary Hospital on Friday so we stopped there first. My parents flew in from DC to be here with the family. What a blessing a great family and friend support system are. I can't begin to tell you on Ang, Eric and our families behalf, how we have felt each and every one of your prayers,thoughts, and love. We all realize the road ahead is not going to be easy but everyone along with the doctors are optimisic for a full recovery.

It is so sad to think there are times in our lives when tragedy strikes and it is all you needed to get back to reality. To get your priorities strait, and to be so thankful for what you have. I love this little girl like my own and can't describe mine and my families heartache. You would be amazed at how strong Ang and Eric are as well. They are going into this with steadfast hearts and true faith that prayers are answered. Thank you to eveyone for your love and support. I will keep people posted as well as my other sisters. They will go back on Wednesday for more tests and more of an idea on what the treatment will be like. Mom and dad bought one way tickets to be here for whatever they need. Thanks again. Here are the 4 munchkins at the hospital on Friday. Are they not so dang cute?? They love Jaxon so much and want to do whatever he is doing. We are so blessed!

My heart just aches for that little girl and the road she has to face. She is in our prayers. We would love to help in any way, please let Ang know that we would be happy to have them stay with us whenever they need to. Our door is always open.

I know that right now is such a scary time for your family, please know that we are all praying, thinking, and wishing we could do something for Ang, Eric and Tegan. Please if you can think of anything let me know. We love you all!

Hey family -

I've tracked you all down and have started to follow your blogs. (You were talking about them at the LAST family reunion and the next one is coming up...)

I've kept a personal website for over 2 years and a blog for 18 months. I know I'm not married like all you folks so I don't have cute pics of kids to put up but I do try to write about things that are more appealing to everyone. (Perhaps I should write about my own family more often)

Anyway, hope to see you guys soon.

Hey Shelby-
Kirby has been keeping me updated, but I just wanted to let you know that your family is in my thoughts everyday. Eversince I found out about sweet baby girl, I have been so sad, but hopeful for your family. They are so lucky to have each of you. You have the greatest family and sibilings that I have ever been fortunate to know. I am so grateful you have each other through this. Please give them my love and I hope to see ALL of you this summer. Lots of love

I was visiting my mom when your mom called with the news about Angie's little girl, and I just wanted to let you and Angie know that we are on that long list of friends and family praying for you all.
