March 2019 Newsletter

By Newsletter

As our family gets ready to “celebrate” Hally’s birthday on March 14, I am filled with such a mix of emotions. Sadness, loneliness, grief, and disappointment bubble up from this mama who loves to give my children gifts, make their favorite foods, tell them how much they are loved, and just spend time with them on their birthdays each year…

Remembering Jacob Kosowsky

God recently reminded me that “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.”  Deuteronomy 29:29

Friday morning, October 18 Shon received a phone call early in the morning from our dear friend Steve Kosowsky that would once again shake our family.  Steve and Sharilyn’s 21 year old son, Jacob, was tragically killed in a car accident during the night. As I sat on my couch trying to process the news, I felt God reminding me once again that He numbers our days and that His plans are definitely not mine. And yet, He is good even in suffering. God didn’t reveal to me why He decided it was time for Jacob’s life on earth to end but He has revealed to me the past two months what an impact this young man made not only on his own family, but also to our family, his friends, and even the world.

Jake was such a gift to all of us! His love and compassion for those around him made many think of him as their best friend. His hugs made everyone feel his love surrounding them. His smile warmed our hearts. His thoughtful words made us see the beauty of the world more clearly. His love for God’s creation inspired us to love and care for the world more. His wisdom made us think more deeply on important subjects of life. His kindness encouraged many hearts.  His love for adventure made memories that will never fade for his family and friends. His life gave us hope, joy, faith and love. Thanking God for the 21 years He chose to put Jacob in our lives.

Please pray for Steve, Sharilyn and Jake’s sister, Mia, as they continue to walk through this difficult journey. Your words of love, hope and encouragement may be sent to our FaceBook page or the Team Hally email.

PRESS ON…and Leave No Doubt

By Stephanie Barrett, Hally’s Aunt
A cold, rainy winter day in Kansas sets the stage for the 2017-18 Team Hally game held at KSU’s Bramlage Colliseum in Manhattan, Kansas. KSU, KU and Team Hally fans and supporters made the trek into Manhattan on Saturday, February 24, 2018, anticipating the sunflower state showdown, as they do for all KSU/KU competitions.
