Jillian Rose Houser
May 16 2002 - January 26, 2011
I have to admit that I have been neglecting our blog on purpose because I just could not bring myself to post about Jill. Jillian passed away on January 26th this year, yes... in the same month as we lost our brother Todd (below). Jillian was a strong little girl, such a beautiful little ray of sunshine. She had so many struggles in her life, struggles that would make a grown adult throw in the towel. She was born with Cystic Fibrosis, then last year found out that she had Leukemia. We will miss her so much.
I also want to take a few minutes to thank people that were there for us in our time of need. Jeanette and Dennis, our dearest friends, who let us stay in their mansion-on-wheels, picked Chris and Eric up at the airport on a moments notice, and played Uno Attack with us in the evenings to help take our mind off of things. Misti and Scott, who not only came to Todds funeral when we called Misti, but came to Jill's service when we just were too grief stricken to let her know. Chris and Andrea Minghelli - it was so great to see you, thank you for finding us at Todds fundraiser!
Thank you to everyone!
