Joel and I went to a small Christian high school here in Kansas. Joel grew up here. I moved here when I was a sophomore. We were high school sweethearts.
This school has loved us so well through Cora's time in the hospital and after she went to be with Jesus. Even the basketball teams have found a way to show their love.
Ivy (Joel's sister) is a senior at Berean. Owen (my brother) also goes to school there and is a junior. They are both on the varsity basketball teams.
After Cora went to be with Jesus they all started wearing pink shoelaces in their basketball shoes. They are still wearing them.
Even the boys! It makes me smile to see all those pink shoelaces just for our sweet Cora.
Both teams just won sub-state and are heading to state this week. I sent my friend Laura after the boys to try to grab a picture after the game. They all got their shoes in and then decided they wanted the trophy in the picture too. They said that this win was for Cora! That will make you teary eyed.
Thank you for remembering our little angel. Thank you for showing so much love and support to our families!
Go Warriors--TAKE STATE!
