A Message From Drew Swank's Family . . . . .
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all the folks throughout
the Inland Northwest and beyond who’ve so lovingly reached out to our
family to comfort us in this time of brokenheartedness. You’ve been so
gracious in helping us to remember and to say goodbye to our son, Drew.
We are so grateful for the thousands of loving and encouraging
words, notes, prayers, cards, e-mails, verses from God’s word, offers
of help, acts of kindness, untold numbers of generous and thoughtful
gifts, and countless hugs and tears. You have lifted our spirits. Also,
thank you too for the many people who have shared personal experiences
and memories of Drew with us … they’ve blessed our hearts. We’re
especially thankful to our Father in heaven for giving Drew to us for
17 wonderful years, and even though we’re heartsick and we miss our
son, we thank and honor God and his plan for Drew’s life. Our hope is
that Christ will be lifted up in this tragic event so that God’s love
will be shown as a beacon of light throughout the land (John 3:16).
God had a bigger and more glorious plan for Drew.
We surely miss our son and brother but we earnestly look forward to
that day when we’ll be together with him again as God promised.
Thank you to the whole community for remembering and caring about our Drew.
Gratefully and lovingly,
Don and Patti Swank and family
P.S. God says our children are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” We
all need to be so grateful to God for these blessings He has bestowed
upon us. Please hug and love your kids every day.
