An Army All Our Own

The last 3 1/2 weeks since we lost our angel Averie has been those of sadness, fear, and breakthroughs. Amongst all these emotions it's also been one of amazing miracles, support and love. When Zach and I went to the emergency room in the early hours of February 12th we were scared and very much alone being hundreds of miles away from our loved ones. Little did we know that an army of support was building all over the nation for us. From the hospital staff that held our hands during such a difficult time, to our family that flew out hours after hearing of our loss, to my husbands Army leadership, our family back home, and the amazing amount of strangers that have showed us their love. Life threw us into battle, a battle we were not expecting and defiantly not equipped for on our own. Luckily we were not forced to fight this battle alone. The amount of gratitude we feel in our hearts is over flowing and to just say "thank you" seems like it's not enough. My sister Vanessa and best friend Ashley printed and mailed us every comment that was made on Facebook and Instagram so that we would be able to read the kind words and feel the love and support whenever we need to. Although family has gone home and we still find ourselves hundreds even thousands of miles away from loved ones, I close my eyes and picture our army behind us. Equipped with their love and support ready to go into battle with us whenever we need them. That picture puts a smile on my face and feels my heart with so much peace. Whether you lent your support through kind words or reached out to us personally we would like to THANK each and every one of you from the bottom of hearts. Your love and your support has not gone unnoticed and we love each and every one of you.

XOXOXOXO Crystal, Zach, Pistol the min pin & Averie our angel <3
