On Saturday, we had a nice encounter with AA. After leaving a family member's house we noticed that on the back of the car we were using that night there was a beautiful butterfly sitting on the trunk of the car. It appeared to be a Monarch butterfly. It was weird for a number of reasons. It was about 1am when do you ever see a butterfly at night. Secondly,as we stayed outside speaking for about an hour more the butterfly did not move once. Finally, at about 2 am we finally left their house and had to lift the sweet butterfly off of the trunk in order to not risk hurting it. As it was lifted and began to fly, someone said, "hey that's probably AA flying back to Heaven after spending some time with us". As they said that, I saw a shooting star fly right over the sweet butterfly. AA definitely was having a nice time with Mama and Papa.
Life is an ongoing process that does not stop just because our bodies rest perpetually. Our spirit/life force continues to push on into freedom. Always remember, that as our bodies grow older all we have are a bunch of yesterday's and very few tomorrows. Live today and enjoy it for what it is. God bless!
Andrew Aidan, Our Fighting Warrior!
Andrew Aidan and his dog Beemer have been the pride and joy of their parents, Michelle & Roi ever since they were born. AA loved to take walks outside, play with his best friend Beemer and his Thomas the Tank Engine set of toys along with any other plane, helicopter, car, truck toy he can get his hand on. For those that have met him, they saw the soul of a mature adult in the body of a sweet, loving boy with a beautiful smile. He bravely battled an aggressive, inoperable, rare form of brain tumor called Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor or AT/RT that spread to his spine as well. This type of cancer effects less than 50 children a year in this country. He has been an inspiration to us and we are sure he will be a vessel of motivation to those in similar situations. Thank you God for protecting our boy!
