A beautiful tribute from Toiresa ♥️ Meet Cash, 9 and his little half brother Grady, 7 ( just a week shy of 8). Life is best lived seeking adventures and on the weekends they were together, that is exactly what happened.
Cash was born with an amazing sense of direction and a passion for flying. He committed to memory many types of aircraft and the pilots that came into the airport where his granddad owns the fixed base operation. A perfectionist in his own right, he was meticulous with whatever job was at hand. His momma’s sidekick and official snow removal go to person. The instigator of arguments with sister Karrington, the one to appoint oldest sister Remi, official hair stylist “ the only one who knows what they’re doing with my hair”. About Grady by his mom, Brooke; Grady was a big animal lover, having dogs, cats, horses and a bunny he was often found loving on one. He was all about adventures in the mountains, in a plane, rafting or on a 4 wheeler. He loved soccer and was very good at it. Everyone in school or on his team could see how serious he was about it. Grady made friends easily and was known for being silly. You could hear his laugh from afar. Most of all, he was a very loving boy to his family, always offering a hug. Grady lived his life wide open, a real inspiration to all who watched him. From his mom’s side, he leaves behind two older brothers, Tanner and Trevin and a older sister, Courtney.
June 3, 2018 they were in a rafting accident with their dad. In a blink of a eye our lives changed. I offer this from experience, lean into God. This will be the hardest season, demanding much from you emotionally, spiritually and physically. You need Him and His peace that surpasses all understanding.
For me, keeping Cash’s room as it was, his artwork displayed, a toy plane in my purse keeps him close. I want to hear stories about him, I want to hear people say his name. Billy Graham once said, “ someday you will hear Billy Graham is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will have just changed addresses. I will have gone into the presence of God”. I Love this promise.
