and shot the dead truck. But he was protecting this family at any
expense. The compass in this box represent Brian Patrick.
4. The family was still missing an important part. Someone to record

family she is priceless. The crown in this box represents Alysha

greater then Grandchildren God sent then Great Grand children.

demons. With his grandmother not far behind they went off night

in hand and collier on head off to blast them into outer space. So
you guessed it the collier and spoons represent Caine Blason.

our lives. He will inherited the entire kingdom. He has placed his
marks on every inch on the estate. Even the cows and the chicken
know his name. The keys in this box represents Mason Tyler .

but decided that Baby Villeneuve needed a playmate so he took her
back. The feathers in this box represent Raquel Deshea’. She touched
our lives with an angel memory.
As you know our family is still growing and the unborn is waiting to
join us so the footprints represents our future children God will be
sending our way.
The glitter you see in this box represents our friends. They are
with us and support us in our times of joy and sorrow. They add the
additional shine to our lives.
In this box you will also find the deed to the kingdom. It
represents the trial and tribulations we have all faced in order to
build this unique family. Just as the wood on this box is strong the
glass is fragile so we must all work together to protect each other.
We are truly blessed to have such a rare family each with traits of
others as well as individual traits of ourselves. These little
things are what we are looking for when we are searching for the big
picture of life. Counting our blessing daily because as part of this
family you are truly blessed.
