We FINALLY had a couple of our laptops fixed and there was a TREASURE of photos that I'd not seen in a VERY LONG time on there. (One of the laptops was Brent's the other was Link's)
Many of these treasures are of Brent during treatment. (The reason being is that some VERY GENEROUS ladies that work with my Aunt heard that Brent wanted a laptop - and they made SURE he got it!) SO, there are LOTS of pictures on here - YES, it's a gold mine to us!
Just below are a few pictures of Brent with Zach at an air force show. They were made while Brent was in the middle of his battle with cancer. (He was invited to their "Pilot for a Day" program)
I LOVE to find pictures of Brent showing affection to his brothers, and yet it breaks my heart to see pictures of him so pale and without hair. (I have this nice "healthy" picture of him TATTOOED on my brain - it's the one I recall when I think of him)
The boys riding on the bus they had for us... Oh, and check out Brent wearing the COOL pilot uniform they had for him! (Each of the the children that participated got one)
(This is the affectionate shot I was telling you about)
and a couple of them "horsing around"
Brent with two of the pilots.. he had an AMAZING day!
I feel like you're probably beginning to dread coming here.. I say that because I feel like I'm ALWAYS asking you to "do" something. Well, once again I'm here asking a favor. (Only THIS time it's FREE, and REALLY QUICK & EASY!) O:-)
If you have a few minutes to spare, could you watch a few VERY short videos on childhood cancer? (There are 6 in total) For every video you watch (they're about 30 seconds each) sponsors will donate 25 cents! You'll answer a question at the end of each short clip.. they get the donation whether your answer is right or not.
I PRAY that we get to see the day that NO family EVER loses another child to this HORRIBLE disease. I just can't stand the thought of another human experiencing what Brent went through. I hate the thought that some child's parents would have to watch them suffer the way we did (an so many others have with their own children).
Now, we know that Brent IS HEALED AND HEALTHY NOW! At HOME with his JESUS!
He got his Ephesians 3:20 HEALING! God HEALED Brent IMMEASURABLE MORE than ALL we could've asked for or imagined! (It was a TREMENDOUS gain for Brent - a gain so great it cannot be measured, for us.. it's the greatest loss we've ever had)
This is the way I remember him (that photo that I told you was "etched on my brain")
Again, if you have a moment please click here to watch these short little clips. (I think there were only 6 - I've forgotten already)
