Dear Parrish Family,
When we learned of Amanda's passing on Sunday, yesterday, we, too, were broken. Our children - with special needs or not - are first and foremost 'our' children, or so we believe. In our most sane moments, we know that God has seen fit to gift them to us for a season, two or more. Some see our challenges and believe we are under constant struggle, stress and strain, just to survive; but, those who really share in this journey know that we have been chosen for special shaping, joy, love and compassion that seems to come through no other way, than through our dear children.
Yes, we all know that Amanda is dancing with Jesus on those streets of gold, and she's happier now than ever; but, she will greatly missed on this side, for as long as her family and friends have breath and tears. But, what a reunion day there will be!
May God hold you in His arms, and care, always - and forever.
Love, Tommy, Beth & Family
