Hi Samm, Mark , Deqlan & entire family,

Like I said and will continue to say, it is our absolute honour and privelage to be able to share and be part of Deqlan's journey. An added bonus for us is that through you guys we are able to help so many other people and for that we are grateful!

You can always knock on our door for anything and we will be there to help!!

Remember how special you guys are to us and how very special Deqlan is to us, he has taught us not to take things for granted and to live each day to the fullest.. That is one of the great lessons yor precious little boy has taught my family..

God bless and sending lots of love & hugs your way..
