Together, our family coaches a soccer team for Special Needs Children through AYSO. We have met several wonderful families and have had the priviledge of coaching some of soccer's finest players through this program.
One of our first players, named Taylor, was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy just before he began 3rd grade. Our team purchased a special guard to fit on his power chair so that he could play soccer. He seemed to really enjoy playing, and we enjoyed playing with him as well.
Taylor passed away after a long battle with Muscular Dystrophy last evening - he would have entered the 6th grade in jsut a few days. He is at last free of pain and suffering, and instead is with the Lord. What a glorious ending to a sad story.
Please pray for his family during this very difficult time.
