We're a family. A family who stands up for what they believe in. A family who's had to endure one of the hardest things imaginable - the loss of a child.

Melila Nicholas 'Nicho' Austin Purcell, was born January 26, 2017, and during his short time here, he taught us more about love than most people can teach us in a lifetime. He taught us how to love unconditionally, to love freely without fear, and to love every individual on this earth, no matter what. And that's exactly what he did.

And so that is exactly what we will do. We will honor Nicho the best way we know how - To LOVE and be LOVED. We will carry on where Nicho could not. He may have only been here for a short time, but he left a lifetime of love and an imprint of his footprints is on our hearts forever.  Our hearts are broken and they will always hurt, but in time, the break will heal. And by having Nicho and love be our focus on this journey, we'll heal better than we were before because we have this hope as the anchor for our soul.
