As camp comes to an end, and we prepare for our move to Cincinnati next week, I just wanted to write a short blog about an amazing family and an amazing soul. Several times in the past year, I have asked for your thoughts and blessings for our friends as they embarked on a tireless, difficult journey. We have learned so much from this family, and will continue to be inspired and touched by their family and their little girl for as long as we live.
On August 7, their little girl breathed her last breaths, cool San Francisco night air, and continued her journey to be with God. This was a very difficult journey for her parents, but they knew it was the right decision to make for their little girl. Reading their blogs and watching their goodbyes, it seems as if this decision was made by their little girl. It's as if she told them it was time, and they were honoring her wishes. I have so much respect and love for them...I only wish I had had the honor of meeting little Tikva face to face.
As the Spinrads continue on this journey, I ask that you hold their family in your thoughts and prayers and hold your own families as close to you as possible. Never forget to tell the ones you love how much you love them every day. Hold them, love them, kiss them...never let go.
For little Tikva, I will never forget.
