We received a letter from the Old Dominion Eye Bank , the letter said......Take comfort that both of Kassidys donated corneas were transplated.Two people are now able to see a sunset, a mountain range, or a loved one's smile because of this difficult decision your family made. One of her corneas went to a recipient in Mannassas Virginia and her other cornea went to a recipient in Sacramento California. I hope this knowledge will ease the pain by the loss of your loved one during this difficult time.
This does help because this is something we prayed for to happen. We thank GOD those prayers were answered.It is cool because Kassidy is helping people from Va to California, we hope there will be a time that we can meet these people or at least talk to them on the phone.
Courtney has went back to school and is doing ok, she is still doing gymnastics also now she wants to play basketball. I have returned to work. Tammy will return on Monday, she wanted to make sure Courtney was ok in school. Friday at Kassidys school, each student will release a pink balloon(400 of them) and then they are going to plant a pink dogwood at the school.They are doing this in Kassidys honor. Tammy and I are going to attend along with some members of our family.
We have been going through some of Kassidys things , we have alot of cool stories to share so keep checking in for future updates .We miss her so much, it is still times when we say something about "the girls".. it is still hard to believe she is not here with us.I have always thought that she was at camp, spending the night with one of her friends, or she will come home tomorrow, well I got up one morning last week and I realized she was not coming home.but that is ok ,we know she is not hurting anymore and having the best times in heaven.
Keep checking in.....Kassidys page will continue to be updated for a very long time .You guys are our family and we love each and everyone of you, please continue to pray for us and especially the ones who does not know Jesus. We dont know when our life will change , In Janurary our family was healthy, going places, visiting family and look how that changed. So love your loved ones unconditionally....tomorrow may not be here, make the best of the time that you have. I will update again soon
