Being a sibling - Allison

Still Thankful

Trenton’s cancer was Allie’s first experience with our family health challenges and she was thirteen years old in eighth grade at the time.  I wondered what she thought, and one night, not long into the journey, I found out.  We were riding in the car, just the two of us…

“’Is Trenton going to die?’ she asked calmly but directly.  A quick prayer for help shot through my brain as a moment of nonresponse filled the car…”
Val and I lost our third and youngest child to the adult world as she left for college a few days ago, so this is a tribute to daddy’s baby girl.  Please leave a comment for Allie (the link on the site is below the title), and share this blog with other dads and daughters.
