I wanted to update as many of you as possible. Thank you for all your love and support this past month. Sean lost his battle against a disease that truly attacks and destroys every part of your physical body. Watching someone you love fight with every fibre of their being right down to their last breath is not something I would wish on anyone. But Sean still had his victory. He went out with such a spirit that was not defeated but was sad to leave us behind. He left this world praying and believing that more would come to know the love of God.
His body was destroyed but his soul had complete victory.

Thank you for continuing to love us, pray for us, care for us. This past year showed Sean that his family who he loved with all his heart would be ok. That so many of you would rise to the occasion to help orphans and widows.

We have been so sad but yet have felt so loved, so carried. This past month whether with an encouraging word, a meal, gift card, sending us money we have felt loved, lifted carried through the pain of this huge hole left in our heart.

Many of you do not know but I grew up in Ireland and have been missing home for quite sometime. Sean and I had discussed and we had agreed if the worst thing happened it would be a good idea for me and the kids to have some time together away from the hustle of our busy lives. I stepped out in faith and asked a dear friends dad to look into flights for our family to Europe. He found some and booked them for me and I was planning to etransfer him. Not knowing the price he sent me an email with the tickets and cost at the same time I received two other emails being etransfers from two people who had no idea of our need and the amount they sent covered our flights down to the exact dollar. So thank you for being a part of our story!

We are going to be in England and Ireland for the summer visiting Seans grandma in England and friends and family in Ireland all the while having time together and making memories. While away we are air bnbing our home to help cover our rent and the cost of our trip. Thank you to all of you who helped make this endeavour happen! We got rid of 40bags of garbage and put a lot of stuff in storage.

Please continue to pray for each one of us. Our hearts are hurting but we will not be broken and believe Sean would want us to continue on loving God and people.
Pray for Jenna she graduated top of her class is planning on going to hillsong In January and is working at a bible camp this summer counselling kids.
Pray for Millah her tender 13year old heart has been experiencing so many hard changes, she is taking them well, but also feels very deeply. A lot like her dad.
Pray for Lennon, he’s watching me constantly trying to make sure I am ok but I don’t want him to feel this weight.
Pray for Quinton his processing is so different from the rest of the kids and he internalizing things quite often.
Pray for Jovie. She misses her daddy and wants him back most days but still have her joyful spirit.

We know God still has a plan and future for us. We miss Sean everyday but believe he is the happiest he’s ever been.
