Your Amazing Gift to Us...


Four months have gone by now since Kit went to be with Jesus.

My dad had an amazing "attitude of gratitude", so what I want to do is to thank all of you who have been there for us. That's what my father would do.

THANK YOU to all of you amazing people who have been there for my mom, me, my brother, my dad's mom, my dad's siblings, their families, and all of the extended Lauer ohana. You have been there for us emotionally, financially, spritually, physically and mentally...and we just can't thank you enough.

THANK YOU to the Hope Chapel Kihei, Maui church family who has been there for us and for each other. We love you dearly...always.

THANK YOU to the doctors, nurses and staff who took such good care of my dad over on Oahu. A HUGE thank you goes out to hospice...you truly are quiet angels and will get your reward in heaven.

THANK YOU to all of you who helped out with the memorial service and spreading of ashes

THANK YOU to all of you who helped with or participated in the Run for Hope/Run for Kit.

THANK YOU to every single person in Hawaii, the United States, and all over the world who prayed so fervently for my dad and for all of us.

THANK YOU to everyone who continues to think about or pray for our family and to all of those who continue to remember my dad, Kit Lauer.
I put up the Expression Session picture as that was the friday night service dedicated to my dad where people shared what my dad meant to them. This was the night he passed away.
THANK YOU for the Expresssion Session. I'm sure that my dad saw it on his way to heaven :-)
God Bless you all!

Maisha, We all loved your dad so much and it is amazing to see you picking up where he left off. He obviously left his heart with you.

Thank you for sharing and loving the body of Christ like your dad did.

It is amazing the people that have been there for the Lauers. You are all so very loved. We, too, have experienced that generosity from so many people and it truly eases the path of sorrow and suffering.

You are always in our thoughts. Life will never be the same without your wonderful Dad. He enriched our lives in so many ways. We wait for the day of reunion.

Love and hugs to all of you,
Da Johnsons

Maisha,
What a wonderful message to read. It has been awhile since I called up the Journey Blog. What perfect timing. I was thinking of Kit, missing him and thinking of you and your family. Our prayers are with you.
Love,
Charlie and Doreen

Glad to see a message, I peek every now and then. I would thank you for being there for us in our hardest time and know that Gods plan is so wonderful and perfect. Sometimes it takes awhile to see what the purpose is but we know there is! We have been so blessed to have the people in our lives that have brought us comfort, your dear daddy and husband was one of those people. Prayers are always with you as you find healing.
Love Nick and Sharon
