Angel-versary Day - Miss You, Christi!

Christine Shayna Thomas (May 12, 1997 - September 19, 2006) Until we are with you again, fly, Christi, fly! We love and miss you to the moon and back!  Thank you for teaching us so much throughout your short life here on earth.  We are better people because of you!

I don't even know the kind person who made this video of Christi's little life, but THANK YOU!  (Click on the pink/red wording to view it.) Youtube "The Legacy of Christi Thomas"

Thanks, everyone, for loving Christi too and for giving us tremendous support during her four year and one week battle with the beast of neuroblastoma (and for helping us try to pick up the pieces without her). We will forever be grateful! While we are not worthy of your love, Christi was. Thank you!

With gratitude on this very sad day,

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

I've been properly "reprimanded" - lol! I guess I haven't updated for a while so here goes! All is well, busy-busy-busy, but I will take Self-Selected busy over the "busy" of cancer treatments and life with loved one fighting cancer any day! Shayne headed for a weekend at Cedar Point to cheer on Webby (Eric) as he competed in the Iron Man half and Shayne was scheduled to do the sprint division; however, horrific weather canceled Shayne's event last Saturday. (Picture: While training, he came across a turtle. He felt as slow as he's been this little guy was a good partner for him, hee hee!)

As you may remember, Christi was diagnosed on September 11th, 2002. We knew it would be a tough day and it was, but thanks to sweet Shayla, we had an afternoon football game to attend so it was nice to do something fun and positive!

Thanks again to my awesome mom for taking so many great pictures and sharing them with all of us!

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. Of course we are aware in October, November, December, January, February, March, April, May, June, July & August too.

The picture was taken in September of 2001 during Christi's first stay at Children's Hospital.

We have all been doing well! School is off to an excellent start and we were blessed to spend Labor Day weekend with my family.

In this picture, taken shortly before Christi was diagnosed, her uncle and dad are teaching her to play baseball.
