February 25, 2008

There was someone very important missing yesterday at Keegan's baptism...his cousin Isaak. Isaak was taken from us over 2 years ago when he was only 6 months old. As I write this my eyes are filling with tears. He was one of the cutest babies around...oh, those chubby cheeks. Today was an emotional day. It was the sentencing hearing of the man that killed him. Since I was in town I went to offer whatever support I could and to show that we have NOT forgotten Isaak. Today was sad, very very sad. But I think now his family can have a little peace, heal just a tiny piece of their heart, that some justice was done. It won't bring Isaak back, but knowing that the man who took him from us can not hurt anyone else, it's something.

Renee, I love you like a sister. I don't think it is too often that the family of the in-laws gets to be so close, but I think our families do a pretty good job! I know that Keegan will forever have his very own personal guardian angel and having known Isaak and having the special memory of playing with him and rocking him to sleep just 3 short weeks before this tragedy...he will FOREVER be in our hearts! We love you Isaak!
