Somehow we neglected to post on this blog about our visit from Jordan Hill of the Seattle Seahawks in April! I was reminded of this when our story appeared on ESPN today, so I thought I’d write about that day for our own memory later.
We had been contacted by a mutual friend of Jordan and his wife, Cristen, asking if we’d be interested in adding “Meet an NFL Player” to Tori’s Bucket List because Jordan had heard about Tori and wanted to come meet her when they were in the area visiting family. We set up the visit and it was about a month away.
We have joked that Tori must not have been a Seahawks’ fan because she decided to go to Heaven two weeks before Jordan and his wife were scheduled to visit. ❤
Once she passed, we didn’t expect to meet Jordan and would have understood if they had canceled their visit…so when he and his wife came over on April 12, we were so excited!
The ESPN article talks about the visit in detail and articulates the emotion of it all very well. Thank you, Sheil, for writing about our story and putting Krabbe back in the spotlight nationally!
Most of all, thank you, Jordan and Cristen, for your kindness and for honoring our daughter in this way. We will treasure the autographed shirt that you brought for her! ❤
