Love What Matters

Ray Burrow fell in love with Christy when they were just teenagers. High school sweethearts rarely survive the test of time, but Ray and Christy are the exception. They were married June 1, 1997 and had 3 children: Zaidee, 15, Ava, 13 and Nathan, 9. Ray has been battling throat cancer for several years and is nearing the end of his difficult journey. In April 2017, they made the difficult decision to stop all treatments. Ray and his amazing family are now doing all they can to enjoy every moment they still have. Ray will not be around to see his children walk across the stage on graduation day. He will not be able to walk his daughters down the aisle and give them away on their wedding days. He won't see them turn 16 and get their driver’s license and their first car. These are the moments that Christy wanted to make sure were captured for her children. She wanted photos of the girls in a wedding dress with their Daddy so it could be displayed proudly on the day of their nuptials. She wanted photos of each of the children in a cap and gown with their proud father smiling down at them, happy for their achievements. She wanted photos of Daddy handing over the keys to an amazing classic car for their upcoming 16th birthdays. She wanted photos of this strong family she and Ray worked so hard to create and nurture, standing together, always.

Love What Matters

"Well, this wonderful soul turned my son's day around. He was in a real "funk" about his new glasses. One of Drew's cancer meds that he took during treatment requires his eyes to be closely monitored, and his lens prescriptions change frequently. We had just picked his new pair up, and the stronger prescription made him feel woozy and they didn't "feel" like his old ones. He was pretty down and out. On our way home, I decided to make a quick stop to The Home Depot in Mt Pleasant, MI to get some paint for my new chicken coop. A nice woman named Debbie helped me with my selections and asked me if Drew could help her mix the paint. His eyes lit up! He walked around the counter and Debbie showed him how the paint mixing machine works. He watched all the colors pour into the gallon of white paint. 'That is SO cool! Mind BLOWN!' he said.

Then Debbie showed him the paint shaker, and she let him seal the gallon of paint with a rubber mallet. She even offered him a job when he is 18, and said she'd work around his college schedule. ☺️ Drew said 'OK!'

All the while, I'm smiling from ear to ear and got teary eyed, watching Debbie help turn my son's day around. I thanked her a dozen times over. When he's happy...I'm happy...and she totally made our day. Please share!"
