This is a picture of me and one of my favorite girls I would babysit at church. Her name was Tori Dilfer. Trent Dilfer (I guess he’s some football player) and his family attended the same church as me and for some reason I LOVED when they came, because that meant I could play with their kids. They reminded me of the siblings I wish I had because they were always so happy.
Since Thanksgiving is tomorrow, I wanted to share an entry in my diary of a person that really made an impact on my life. A person I thank God SOO much for. His name was Trevin Dilfer.
4/30/03 Dear Diary, I hav no idea y, but the year of 2003 has been the worst. I hav been crying way too much. Trevin Dilfer has died. He died on the 27th of April and I wouldn’t be crying so much if I wouldn’t hav known him, but I did. I remember the very first time I saw him, I said to myself “Wow, he is really cute and is going to hav a lot of girls like him. He was the cutest boy I hav ever seen. I also remember the time I worked w/ him in sunday school. I went right over to him and played with him. We played tag. Logan and Trevin tried to get me and they would hang on until I shook them off. It was mother’s day that sunday, and we each took a picture of every kid and put it on a paper and they gave it to their mom. I thought he looked so handsome. I sat by him that sunday. Mr. E asked the class questions and when he asked, I told Trevin the answers and he got a ton of cookies. It’s just so sad that he was just this healthy boy and then he suddenly got an illness and he needed a heart transplant but no one could find one for him. He was getting healthier, but not healthy enough to live. Riverpark Bible Church (my church) kept praying for him. I will never forget his cute smile. I watched the news tonight and they showed pictures of his life and I just couldn’t hold my tears. I bawled like a little baby. It’s just been hard for me this week. First we had to put my dog asleep and now the cute little boy that now has no future ahead of him is now dead and is with God, in heaven.
"One of these days" was Trevins favorite song. Trent Dilfer said that Trevin was his best friend. Trevin told his parents that he was going to become a football player just like his daddy. I will never 4get Trevin and when the Dilfers come and visit our church I will miss seeing that cute blonde hair boy with that great smile. I hope he remembered me just once. I just think it must be so hard loosing a child of the Dilfer’s. I will miss Trevin with all of my heart. I wish so much that I could have been able to see him one last time before he died. I love you Trevin! And will feel sorry for your mom and dad. If I had known ahead of time, I would have given’ up my heart so that he could have lived, but God had other plans. One of these days I am going to see my Savior face to face, one of these days. Trevin you are forever remembered in my life and I can’t wait to see how happy you will be when I meet you in heaven with God. I know it had to be tough, and your are right! You are better than spiderman and superman cause you are Trevin to the rescue! And you made me know that God always knows what’s best. I love you so much! Even though I barley knew you, I felt like you were my own little brother and it hurt so bad when I found out you had died. Enough said, God Bless the Dilfer’s
If someone knows the Dilfer family, please pass this on to them. I have a feeling they wish they knew someone who was inspired and changed by their son Trevin. And that someone was me.
