We're doing OK today. We're immersed in the details of planning services, and are still surrounded by friends and family who are providing incredible support to us right now. Our God is so good, He knows exactly what we need and when we need it.

Amy and I both slept pretty well, especially compared to the previous night. Amy's sister Taryn was staying with us last night, so she got the kids up this morning and let Amy and I sleep. We had the rare opportunity to just lie together in our own bed after we woke up, undisturbed, processing, sharing our memories of the previous day, crying, and praying together.

There will be a viewing this Friday, December 9th, 2005 from 3 to 5 PM at Faith Church of the Valley, 2125 E. Chandler Blvd, Chandler, AZ 85225 (map).

We are having a graveside service in Tucson the next day, Saturday, December 10th, 2005, at East Lawn Palms Cemetery, 5801 E. Grant Rd, Tucson, AZ 85712 (520-885-6741) (map).
It will start at 10:30 AM.

The BIG party (also known as the Celebration of Abby's Life service) will be Saturday, December 17th, 2005, again at Faith Church of the Valley (map). It will start at 4:00 PM.

We are humbly asking that in lieu of flowers, donations be given to

  • A Hand of Hope ( A Hand of Hope is a local organization that arranges frequent activities for kids with life-threatening diseases. Their philosophy is that sick kids benefit when they have something to look forward to. Abby loved the AHOH activities--we went to movies and their big Day of Hope event which this year was at
    McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park.
  • Faith Church of the Valley ( Faith has been our church home for the past 14 years. Without their support I know we would have never made it through Abby's illness.

We look forward to seeing everyone and appreciate your continued support.
