We Miss You, David!

You have made a great and lasting impact on our lives with your too-short life. We love you and miss you.

Pray for David

Rebecca, with her brother and best friend, David.
Christmas Break, January 2008

Our nephew, David Heiner, on break at Utah State University and visiting his family in North Carolina, was found yesterday at the bottom of their country club pool. He was swimming there with his little brothers, Daniel and Nathan.

Life saving measure were given, which brought David back to a pulse. He was taken by ambulance to the local hospital in Aiken, and after 2 hours flown by life flight to Charlotte. He is currently on a respirator, and has acute respiratory distress. His body temperature has been lowered in order to prevent brain damage. We do not know levels of brain activity at this time.

Steve and his parents (as well as Steve's sister Melanie), caught immediate flights.

Please pray for David and his family. We know that prayers save lives and bring great peace in times of turmoil, such as this.

Having a Ball!

Monday, June 2nd Louisa enjoyed her performance debut as a "Tricky-Trickster" in Children's Ballet Theater's "I Love the Circus". She was darling! She loved being on stage, and especially enjoyed bouncing and bounding to the music.

As an audience, we were encouraged to applaud rather than giggle when the performers did something heartwarming. And so we did! There were great explosions of applause throughout the entire show.

Louisa says, "It was so fun! I danced out of the door when the music starts. We bounced the balls up and down and jumped all around. And then we come where the ribbons are, and then the back wall turns yellow. I was not scared to dance in front of my mom and dad and grandma, and Monica too! I wore a pretty headband that has sparkles and everything."
