Happy Birthday Jayci

Happy Birthday Jayci Thursday was our sweet little Jayci’s 6th birthday. It’s hard to believe she is six years old already. It’s incredible how fast time flies. This week’s story is about the birthday fun we had last weekend with Jayci and her friends. It all started with Brittney coordinating a completely fun filled day. […]


FIRA-USA Event Before I tell you about the exciting event I was able to take part in this week, I want to send a very special thank you to Amanda Wade, and the Hillcrest Student Council for arranging a breast cancer awareness night for the Shannon Wilker Foundation at the Hillcrest High School football game […]

More Fundraisers

More Fundraisers Yesterday was a very good day for the Foundation. It began with the Snake River BMX organization holding a special breast cancer awareness day for the Foundation.

The Blessings of Community

The Blessings of Community Before I begin to talk about our amazing community, I want to thank Berna Deanne’s family, and her community for the sweet, and beautiful tribute to her on Wednesday. It was so very heartwarming. I especially want to thank her daughter Melanie for the life sketch. She did an amazing job […]

A Very Special Lady

A Very Special Lady The reason I did not post a story last weekend was due to my Mother-In-Law Berna Deanne getting Covid earlier in the week, and then she came down with a case of pneumonia. This caused her to get admitted to Portneuf Regional Medical Center in Pocatello. I drove down to see […]

Eastern Idaho State Fair 2022

An Inspirational Young Man

An Inspirational Young Man This week Kristi learned that one of her friends found out their 17 year-old Grandson has a rare form of terminal cancer, and the doctors told them his life expectancy would be less than one year. They were given the options of aggressive treatment that might extend the young man’s life […]

Fun with Jayci

Fun with Jayci Let me start this week’s story by sharing an old Rodney Dangerfield joke. “I asked my Dad to take me to the zoo. He said, If they want you, they’ll come and get you.” That is the lead into our day with Jayci. Kristi and I had told Jayci, the next time […]
