#1in100 Andrew was a miracle from the beginning.
For six beautiful years Andrew brought God's joy and light in the world. For six beautiful years he beat the odds and showed the world what strength was.
For six beautiful years he was a son, brother, grandson, godson, and friend.
And now for all the days and years to come, the warmth and joy and love he brought will be carried in our spirits and hearts.
There are not words for such a time as this, and yet for many of us we are left wanting. Wanting to pour out our love and God's peace onto friends who endlessly have poured into us.
Beth welcomes all into her home with open arms, warm greetings and bottomless kindness. She pours her heart into music that reaches into the world beyond her imagination. God reveals himself through Beth in a way that welcomes strangers home.
Jeromy is a steady rock that many of our storms have crashed against. When there is trouble and no answers to be found, Jer shows up with solutions to fix everything. He holds the burdens of so many and helps them find their way through. God reveals himself through Jeromy by rescuing and holding and caring for so many.
The death of their son Andrew is tragic and sudden leaving everyone at a loss of words and how to respond. How to be there for two people who have always been there for us. How to show up and be a home to Beth. How to show up with the answers to fix everything for Jer.
To the friends and family and those touched by the ministry and Godly example of the Dorsings, we have an opportunity to pour our love, our comfort, our grief, our hope and our divine light and peace on this family. There are unexpected costs surrounding the next days and weeks and months that they face. This platform is a tool to extend that love and support to this family.
A celebration of life service has been planned for Andrew on Saturday July 20 from 1-4pm at Coon Rapids Evangelical Free Church. This is a service open to all who can attend. Please read the details in the event invitation: https://www.facebook.com/events/789151021488325/
By donating to this platform, all funds received will be given directly to the Dorsings to offset whatever costs come up in relationship to them celebrating their son and saying good bye.
By donating to this platform, they also reserve the right to donate these funds to any organization they choose that would honor their son and his vibrant life.
By donating to this platform, we as their support network trust them to use these gifts as they see best for their family and situation.
When information is updated, more will be shared here.
Other support gifts would be sending them gift cards to fun places to go as a family. Some ideas would be: Chik-fil-a, Culvers, Mall of America (rides), Valleyfair, the movies, bowling, a trampoline park, etc.
This idea was brought forth by a friend who also lost a son and said it was a perfect way to help get them out of the house and spend time together as a family. If you wish to give in this way, please send those gifts directly to the Dorsings. Simply leave a note here and we will be in touch to get you the address.
