Domino effect

ripThe accidental drowning of three-year-old Ava Grace Hart launched a domino effect impacting countless individuals.  Her parents, Tasha Morrow and Will Hart, shared their angel with the world.  Relying on faith, family, and friends to help them through their darkest days, they thanked God for the sacred time they had with their child.  Even those who never met this precious little girl were devastated by her death and inspired by her lifeLosing Will five months later seemed unspeakably cruel.  How much more could one family take?

On June 25th, 2013, Tasha gave birth to her third child, Ayden, one day before the first anniversary of Ava Grace’s passing.  As if that’s not devastating enough….Tasha’s first son was only only a few days old when he lost his sister.  Colton turned one four days before his brother was born.  Can you even imagine what my sweet Tasha goes through every June?  My heart breaks for her.  She’s the strongest woman I know.

What strikes me most about the loss of Will and Ava Grace [other than the profound effect their absence has on one of my very best friends] is the remarkable amount of faith exhibited by those affected.  No one demonstrates this more eloquently than Will’s brother, Eric Hart.  Virtually every day he shares himself with us on Facebook– at times truly baring his soul.  He’s made it his mission to carry on the legacy of his brother and niece while serving as a crusader for his beliefs.  I’m in awe.  The faith of the Hart Family blows my mind.  If I could only have a ounce of his devotion….

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
