I just had to comment. I can't keep my mouth shut. First of all, the you tube video is amazing and I cried all the way through. It is truly the house that love built. As Dave and I drove home last night we drove by the house. What an amazing sight. Every window in that beautiful home was lit up, with cars lined up and down the street...and this was at nine o'clock! I was overcome from the outside, I can't even imagine the power that was felt on the inside. Thank you for letting us be blessed by the love as well!! My fast tomorrow will be for this amazing boy and his amazing family...ALL of you!

That video was awesome. Great job to all those that were there. Angel and Rob I hope the best for you and your family. Our prayers are with you and Charlie. He is a strong little boy and I am sure he is going to surprise you and be even an even stronger little boy when this is all over. Stay strong and keep the faith. You guys deserve a big miracle to happen.

Wow! that was awesome! Where is this blesed extreme makeover house... I would like to not only see it, but be warmed by its love.
Comments: Sterling! great to see you behind the hammer again. Twins! when did we get so old? And who are those two grey hairless men? The rest of you! what an inspiration... I am jealous of you for this experience. Suz... I knew you had a heart... you are one of the greatest, most honest people I know. Trish, you don't have to be in Denver to be away.. But you and Marilee and the others are contributing by your comments and thoughts and prayers. Jared... WOW... what a gift you have given your family.. this is the most amazing thing ever, the only thing you are missing is a megaphone and a million dollar a year check. Ty Pennington has nothing on you.

Rob and Angel, I believe you can relax.. your house and your lives are in not just good hands, but many, many hands.. And they are AWESOME

Oh My--how I wish I could have been there. How I wish I could have had that experience of family when--Oh well I guess thats the price of living away. It's just the four of us here.
Just an amazing show of love and family. I loved seeing all my family. How'd you all get older? I'm sure I haven't.
Just boo hoo'd the whole time and the music didn't help that.
Cheryl, you must be so proud of your children woring together to pull that off. I know I am. And Rob, that paddle looks equal to the task of that disgusting creek.

That video was awesome! Itn't amazing how so many people pull together at a time like this and offer such selfless giving, it really goes to show that there are a lot of good people out there (:

I read your previous post about the siezures. That stinks Charlie had 2. I'm glad the Ativan helped. (We are still using Ativan, it is the only thing that really helped Alyvia....plus it's mild and has been around forEVER.)
I hope today is a good day for Charlie. We think of him often.

Oh, and Alyvia thinks Charlie is very handsome too!! (;

I can only duplicate what everyone else has said. The video was amazing. I cried the entire time too. Your family is truly loved. I wish I could have been there to feel the spirit that I'm sure was present. Thinking of you always!

Jared, as I was reading your letter, the tears welled in my eyes. Your tender words are beautiful. The endless hours of hard work you put in hoping to put a dent in Rob's unfinished home is very touching. I dont see men express themselves like that very often. I think you are simply wonderful.

How blessed I am to be part of such and amazing family made up of the most kind, generous, giving and selfless people I have ever met or could imagine doing so. I feel cheated that I wasn't there to help last night but you were all in my thoughts and in spirit I was there. Jar, I cried through your posting about how overwhelming the support was. You are the most genuinely giving, caring, and loving person I know. Thank you for sharing your actions and feelings with the rest of us. It's neat to get a taste of the spirit that is present at this tough time. Troy, thanks for sharing this spirit of love with everyone out there, You truly captured the spirit of love and family between all those aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers, sisters, grandparents, friends and neighbors...thank you. Rob and Angel, we are pulling for you and little Charlie. Isn't it miraculous that we have such a wonderful and closeknit "family". Love you...

Okay, I'm over myself now and I just want to say--who ARE all those guys???? And I would delete that whiny post except there would be the dreaded "removed by auathor" thingy. I did love looking for all my brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews and loved seeing Papa. Kinda like Where's Waldo.
Carry on, Carry on, Carry on!

It is so awesome to see all of the work that is being done in love for this little guy! We are so jealous that we can't be there to help-we just wish that we could do more than pray...

I love our family! We seriously have the best family in the world! Everytime I read these comments I just tear up and know that no matter what the situation is we will all pull together and help in what ever way we can! I love every single person in our family and everyone who is sharing their love too.
