On the evening of January 11, 2016, at approximately 6:05 pm, the unthinkable happened and our family was changed forever. For that is the date our oldest son, Hans, was killed in a car crash at the end of our driveway.
The next day would have been his twenty-first birthday.
The purpose of this blog is to honor the Lord Jesus Christ in the context of our grief after losing Hans. We declare that the true and living God is real, that He is good, and that he is worthy to be praised. We hope to be an encouragement to other parents who are walking through this same valley; to rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. (Romans12:15)
We desire to remember Hans’ life, to share those memories with others, and to draw every bit of good we can from this painful season in our own lives. Our prayer is that because Hans lived, many might be brought to a saving knowledge of Hans’ Savior: God the Son, Jesus Christ.
Because knowing Jesus is everything.
