George's Guardian's of Grace Projects
Stocking project is now in full force collecting donations. We have a list of the items we can use. You can also choose to sponsor a stocking in memory or honor of someone else. We will include a paragraph or two in the cards we place in the stockings to let the recipient know about the person that means so much to you. Our paypal account is posted on this page and ready to take donations. Email us for a list of items needed or with any questions or information you would like included on a sponsored stocking/donation.

Tomorrow is a big day for us. Gabrielle will be the same age that George was when he died and Josh was when he had his seizure. It brings much anxiety with it! Gabby is on her monitor and Hugh and I are both on edge but trying not to really think of it too much. They were all 143 days old when they had their issues. I had told myself I wasn't going to count the days but I had to know. It will be a good and sad day all at the same time. How hard it is to think that Gabrielle will surpass her brother's age is just so overwhelming. I never really thought it would be a big milestone but it really is deep in my heart. It brings so many emotions with it. We will be spending the day with my family since my niece Mallory is going to be baptized tomorrow. Today he was on my mind quite a bit since we were at the park with the kids. He never got to go there and today I sat with the kids under a tree to get our picture taken with me and the kids only to just feel as if part of me was missing. I looked at the pictures and you could just see it in my eyes that I was missing him. After some thought I realized that he is always there even if he isn't really physically there because he was there in all our hearts. The kids always say how much they love and miss him and I know how much I do so he was there in our hearts even if he was not in the pictures. Every single part of me misses him every single day. Please pray for us and that there are no major events tomorrow with Gabrielle or any of the kids for that matter and that we can just enjoy the day as we celebrate my niece becoming a child of God.

We never got to celebrate Easter with our little monkey. This is such a sad time for me because there are many reminders of things we never got to do with him and yet I am happy and trying to keep it together for everyone else and myself. Things here have been way beyond chaotic and I can't even begin to explain it all. My poor body and brain are just shot right now to the point I don't want to do anything! Yesterday of all days was so crazy that I am still trying to wrap my head around all that happened. I will go into detail more possibly tomorrow after the boys doctors visit or maybe Tuesday. I am just asking for prayers to help me going and continue moving forward even if it is only a moment by moment thing right now. I am asking God to carry me now through this rough patch...he always does...I am so thankful for his love and sacrifice and that Easter exists.
Video Tributes/Celebration of Life Footage
Here is a link to a video tribute that was made by Richard's dad in memory of George. Get out your tissues!
We Finally have footage from the service up and running:
It is in 4 sections running about 17 mins each. If you were unable to attend, you can now see what you missed. We were so blessed to have everyone there with us in person and in spirit!
