The Perran Family is wishing you and your families a beautiful and blessed Thanksgiving! It’s so hard to believe that these photos of Jake and Connor were taken the day after Thanksgiving 2017. So many cherished memories to be thankful for!

Love this new song called “Memories” by Maroon 5 and wanted to share it with you today.

Friendsgiving 2019

Last week, Trina and I had fun doing all of the shopping for Friendsgiving. We filled two shopping carts with groceries and were under budget thanks to Trina’s awesome planning :). So, we decided to get a movie theater gift card for each family as well in hopes that they can enjoy some special time out together over the holidays. We put together 2 large boxes of groceries per family, Trina made up recipe booklets, I printed a photo of each of our families, and we included a card along with a few Hannah’s Helping Hands and Connor’s Courage bracelets. Spending time together to get it all packed was so good for our grieving hearts. And of course, we were thinking of Connor and Hannah the entire time. On Sunday, Bob helped us load everything up in the truck and we delivered the boxes to the families. We are grateful for the generous donations from family and friends, which allowed us to give the gift of Friendsgiving to five Treasure Valley families this year! Connor’s and Hannah’s light continues to shine bright in so much of what we do and it makes us feel good to be able to help other families.


The Rodgers Family and the Perran Family are providing Thanksgiving meals to families in need in honor and memory of our beautiful children who we lost to Batten Disease this year. Princess Hannah and Connor are loved, dearly missed, and they continue to inspire us to help other families. We will provide as many Thanksgiving meals as possible based on total donations received. Please note: All food will be delivered between Nov. 22nd through Nov. 24th. Please click on the link to nominate a Treasure Valley family. If you would like to donate, we are accepting checks, cash, and PayPal donations via a PayPal account we set up for this purpose only. If you are interested in donating via PayPal, please message me for more info. Thank you for your help!
