There are 365 days in a year....sometimes 366....and every single day marks an icon for either a positive or negative memory for someone out there. June 30th marks a positive day for Amanda and Chris who celebrate their first anniversary together and also for Josh who celebrates his birthday....Celebrations shared on the same day that is also filled with sadness and grief. Today marks the second anniversary of the death of Aaron Kyle Cooper and although we celebrate that we know he his in Heaven, there is still such a loss. I just wanted to publically say how grateful I am for the Cooper's profound message of hope that they proclaim even when I'm sure it is so very difficult to bare at times. They have distantly given me strength and encouragement through my own grief giving me a godly example of perseverance, courage and strength. Memories of Aaron stay fresh and will never be forgotten.
So, CONGRATULATIONS to Amanda and Chris!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Josh!
And SEE YOU AGAIN to Aaron! Take care of my Zachary and see you soon!
