So Much Gratitude

August 4, 2014 at 9:44 PM by Rebecca Keeney


Hello friends of Joe and Susanna. This is Becky again to update you on some things. First and foremost I have been asked to express heartfelt appreciation for all of the love and caring concern you have expressed through the comments on this blog. You have no idea how much your love has meant to Susanna as she has walked through these first very hard days without Tommy. It will take her some time to be able to carefully read through every one of your comments and really soak in the truth of the messages you shared but she has seen some and is blessedly overwhelmed by them.

The second thing I would like to share with you is the plan for a memorial service. It will be held on August 16th at 2:00pm at Calvary Church on Landis Valley Road in Lancaster. Light refreshments will follow the service. All are welcome to come and support the Musser family as we celebrate Tommy’s life and the ministry God has worked through his short life.

I am convinced that Tommy’s ministry continues. As you may have noticed on the You Caring web site any amount more than is needed for the stated purpose of burial and headstone expenses will be given to the Pleven Project. Through this and other means I am sure that Tommy’s legacy of the value of adoption will continue. Those of us who watched him blossom and grow with the love, medical care and family interaction are so thankful for the opportunity to know this precious young man.



With Hearts That are Breaking

This is Susanna’s friend, Becky.  I come to you with very heartbreaking news from the Musser home.

This morning precious Tommy left this world to be whole and complete with Jesus in an accidental drowning.

As you can surely understand Joe, Susanna and the children desperately need time to grieve and work through many things in these immediate days and weeks.  I’m sure you will understand their need for space and quiet.

I know in these times we want to “do” something to help.  I would ask you to pray, pray, pray.  In time Susanna will share as many details as she feels she can, however, after spending time with her over the past several hours I can tell you that it is going to be a very long time, if ever, before Susanna can stop blaming herself for the events as they played out today.  No one can possibly be harder on her than she is currently being on herself.  No one who is here and knows the truth blames her….nonetheless….we are not Susanna.

Thank you, so much, for your prayers as we know you will be lifting this dear family before the Throne of God.









Jumping for JOY!

How can I ever thank you adequately for what you have done?  Today our family is rejoicing with Dan and Jeannie and so many of you as Brandi’s fund EXCEEDED THE GOAL!




Over the next few days, watch as the matching grant is added by the ELEVEN individuals who put it together, making the final total more than $24,500!

If you helped in any way to make this happen, BLESS YOU for what you did for this little girl!!!
