Kendra Strong

Kendra and I would like to announce the birth of Baby Boy Kallen Nash Brooks at 7lb 3.2 oz at 6:34 PM on August 10 via C section. Baby is doing excellent and is perfect in every way. ​ In the most regretful, somber and absolutely difficult time of my life, My Beautiful Kendra and Kallen's Mother passed away on August 11th at 12:23, due to being diagnosed with Leukemia two days before Kallen's birth. Kendra was sedated Thursday morning to allow her body to rest and allow her body to stabilize, and was sedated until her passing. Her death was in no way Kallen's fault, everything went great with his delivery and worldly arrival.  ​ Kendra was the most stubborn, hard headed, most loving, outgoing and altruistic person I have ever met and got to spend less than a year married to her.  ​ God's greatest gift is life. Kendra's greatest gift and accomplishment is Kallen. I am so thankful to have the gift of Kendra and Kallen from God. It saddens me though, that Kendra never got to see or hold our child before she got called home to watch over Kallen and me for the rest of our time on Earth. I am so proud to be Kallen's father, and I am rejoiced that I will get to see my Wife when my time is up as well, and we can enjoy the Kingdom of Heaven together, but until then, I have the most important Worldly duty of being a DAD.  ​ Hug your loved ones, and make sure you understand that time is precious, life is precious, and even though this deepest tragedy was bestowed upon us, that God is still great and was able to give the World Kallen and gave me part of Kendra that will live on as a reminder of her. ​ As we grieve, the pain will not go away, but the enjoyment and good memories with Kallen will grow as well. Many of you will ask what you can do and there is something. I need help preserving Kendra's presence through memories, stories, pictures and thoughts. We will be setting up an email account for people to email Kendra when they need to talk about, to or simply know that your thoughts will be preserved. I would like to be able to raise Kallen in the same way as if She was still with us, so I need to be able to help him know who his Mom is, and how much she loved him. Paper letters will also be great, so when I struggle, I can read them to Kallen and share your words with him now and as he grows to fill his Mothers very loved legacy on Earth. ​ May God be with us, and comfort us as I know in my heart that Kendra is right beside me holding my hand, telling me, "it's going to be ok" and we all felt her presence on Earth as she watches over Kallen and I as our biggest fan and our Angel! ​ Please pray for us that God will continue to give us peace, and don't stop believing in God just because Kendra got called home. I believe there's a plan for everything, some of which we don't understand, but we trust that God has the controls and knows what he is doing.   Kendra loved many, and I know the World will love Kallen. Thank you for the flooding of support and thoughts through this rough time. Seeing Kallen is the most precious thing I have ever seen, and you all will get to see him grow to be just like his Mother. ​ Once again, please remember that this is not goodbye, but simply a way to honor her by remembering her and helping me raise Kallen to know his mother in ways that you all know her too.  "My Name is Eric Corvin and my best friend is Robert Brooks I was blessed with spending time with him and his new born son after he lossed his recent and wonderful wife. I want to jump start his life over and help move forward in a future for both him and his son."
