Sad Day

Bliss died today.

She was 14.

14 years ago today, I bought her for Charissa on her birthday. I was apprehensive at first. Never had a dog before...

I loved her. She was the best dog a family could ask for.

Services will be pond side at 7pm Friday evening. We'll have a tennis ball throwing and Nelly will retrieve. Much like an F-16 missing man formation. She'll be laid to rest by the pond where she LOVED to swim almost daily.

I'll miss her dearly. She was a loved Gold Retriever.

The Koens

Our great friends Frikkie, Tina, Josh and Matthew

are right now about to arrive in South Africa for an exciting journey that most would not even dare think of, much less actually do. Jesus has called them to go helps kids have a new chance in life by teaching them life skills and encouraging them to follow Jesus. Bridge To Cross is an organization they started bring this dream to reality.

If you would like to follow them and keep up to speed, their blog is:

We are so proud of you Frikkie and Tina and doing what God is calling you to do. We love you and we support you. And, we can't wait some day to come and visit you!
