This is us! The Herings! JLRRM
We were a “perfect” family of five before the accident that took our Rhett Jett away and changed us all forever. Now, we are a perfectly broken family of four that laughs, smiles, cherishes old memories, makes new memories, and struggles daily to make sense of our loss and at the same time not lose our senses!
We love God and we love each other.
Jimmy and I have been married since January of 1993. We are best friends and lovers and everything in between. Our marriage isn’t perfect, but it is a priority and that makes all the difference. 😍
Ryan was born in 1999. He is a brilliant young man who loves God, basketball, friends and family. He will be graduating from McGregor in May of 2017 and will be moving to College Station in the fall to attend ATM. We will miss him, but we are so thankful he gets to go chase his dreams.
I think I’m supposed to “Whoop” here! 😬
Mara was born in 2003. She is our sweetheart girl, and she does it all: student council, basketball, volleyball, softball, track, cheerleading, honors academics, etc. The most important thing she does is love God and live well. She is finishing up junior high this spring and will be starting high school in the fall.
I think I’m supposed to cringe here! 😳
Rhett was born in 2000. He was full of life, laughter, love and joy. He was the full meal deal…all that and a bag of chips. He was an includer, an encourager, and an adventurer. He loved people so well, and he was fluent in so many love languages! He lived wide open every single moment of the 5655 days he was given. Due to a tragic Polaris accident, Rhett graduated from this earth to his Heavenly Home on December 28, 2015. It was our worst day ever, but…
I think I’m supposed to “trust” here! 😢
Meet me in the confessional:
1. I confess that I normally have every intention of doing what is right and good, and yet, I don’t always do what I am supposed to do.
2. I dye my hair. I figure that you probably guessed that from the pic collage above, but I felt the need to go ahead and get that out there in the spirit of keeping things real!
