With all that has happened in the last month or so, it really makes you appreciate the little things in life. I never realized myself how a simple day like "Mother's Day" could make the fine ladies that bring us up in this crazy world just feel so loved and adored. A simple 24 hour period cannot express these feelings, but it sure does make em smile! Happy Mother's Day Mom!
Wow! I jumped on today to take a look at our progress and I was amazed again at the love and generosity shown by so many people! We are nearly to $20,000!!! Let's get a push going! Share with your friends, your neighbors, your doctors, anyone that would like to contribute is welcome. No amount is too small!
Happy Monday! Well, it's official! We received our articles of incorporation today in the mail, and we also received word that our new website should be up and running within 10-14 days! WHOOP!!! Everyone stay tuned!
Happy National Lemonade Stand Day! These fine young ladies decided that their proceeds from their participation in today's nationally recognized event would go directly to Christy's Wish! How sweet! And let me tell you, the lemonade and banana bread was awesome!! Thank you so much for your support!
HOWDY! Well, we've eclipsed the $19,000 mark and are now on our way to $20,000! Thank you all so much for your support and willingness to share this fund with all those you know! Please continue to spread the word and help make Christy's Wish a reality!
Good morning everyone! So yesterday, my wife was going through our wedding photos and found so many good pictures of Christy! I'll be sure to upload a couple more later on, but this is my favorite...probably because she is giving us a "double Gig 'em"!
Happy Sunday everyone! Next weekend we will be visiting with the university to set up the paperwork for Christy's scholarship! If you've already donated, please check with your company to verify if they will match your donation. We have incorporated as "Christy's Wish Inc." as an eligible 501(c)3 company with the IRS. Most companies will have a 1:1 matching program up to certain limits, so lets try to double your generous donation! You can search for your company through the A&M Foundation.

So, today was an awesome day! I woke up to see that we had nearly hit $18k! INCREDIBLE!
Not only that, 528 Crossfit held a memorial workout in my sister's name. 4-24-94. 4 Rounds for time, 4 exercises, 24 reps, and end it with 94 double unders on the jump rope...all the people that showed up to workout in her name really provided a great sense of camaraderie within our gym. Thank you to all those who came out! Check out the photo!
Let's go back a few years with today's update. I can remember my mom dressing my sister up in what I called the "Christmas Moo-Moo"! Enjoy the photo, if your on Facebook or Twitter, feel free to share your photos with us as well! :-)
Today is especially exciting, its Christy's birthday! I can remember that day vividly, 4-24-94, my dad had bought us floor seats to the Rockets game. I remember sitting at my Aunt Ree and Uncle Harry's house waiting...and waiting...and waiting for him to pick me up, but he was running late for one reason...my mom was going into labor. To this day my dad tells this story saying "I knew it had to be a girl, cause no son of mine would make me miss a Rockets game!" HA!! Fortunately, our Aunt Sissy was gracious enough to come and sit with my mom, while my dad and I made it for the remainder of the game. Happy 20th birthday Christy! I know you're up there partying with old family, friends, and Jesus! Enjoy today's photo!
Thank you to all those who came to support our family today at my sister's funeral. May God bless her soul and let her rest peacefully for all eternity. Sweet angel, I promise to make your dreams come true, and you have everyone here to thank and watch over up in Heaven. We all love you, and always will.
WOW! From the bottom of our hearts we want to thank all of you for supporting this scholarship fund! The heart felt thoughts and prayers are so soothing in this tough situation. I thought I would begin sharing some photos on here with each of my updates. I hope you all can see how sweet and caring she was through each of these.
Christy was such a loving and caring girl, and her death was so untimely. She wanted nothing more than to become a teacher and touch the lives of young boys and girls. We ask for any donations you can so that we may create the "Christy's Wish" Scholarship which will go towards current and future students at Texas A&M University for years to come.
Any amount that you can contribute is welcome. Thank you so much in advance and God bless!
