Hello all. Our beautiful son Zander is now being held by God. He left his earth yesterday at 11:01 a.m. He was not in any pain and he was surrounded by many people that loved him. We are having visitation on Friday, November 7, 2008 at Red Bank Baptist Church (main sanctuary) here in Chattanooga/Red Bank from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. We are having a private graveside service on Saturday for Zander and he will be in a place where he can enjoy the beautiful trees. IN LIEU OF FLOWERS, MEMORIAL CONTRIBUTIONS CAN BE MADE AT ANY SUNTRUST BANK IN THE NAME OF ZANDER COVERT. We love each of you and thank you for the many blessings that you have given our family. Please keep Ethan, Raymond and the Weekend #31 men's team and candidates in your prayers. I will write again soon. Love to all. Zander, you don't have to move along anymore. You are home. Clancy

Election Day, November 4, 2008

Good Morning All! Today is the day we have all been waiting for. Tomorrow there will be no news. Yeah! Just kidding. I hope everyone is able to vote today. You will be a part of history today no matter who you vote for. Sorry for my delay in writing, but it has been hectic around the house and at work. Houston and Jackson are doing well and school is going well for both of them. Zander is doing well. We did see the ENT in recent days and this Friday, Zander will undergo surgery to dilate his esophagus again. Once Dr. Kelley finishes this part of the surgery, Dr. St. Charles will insert tubes into Zander's ears and then have an audiologist perform a detailed hearing test. As I understand it, it will be while Zander is under anesthesia so that the test can be as accurate as possible. The goal, at this point is to get Zander hearing something for developmental purposes. The quicker he can hear something, the better off he will be in his development. We are praying that the tubes assist him greatly and we still know that God is in control. Please pray for another miracle in our son's short life. Zander also sees the cardiologist tomorrow. Hopefully his heart problems are continuing to fade, but we will know more tomorrow. Thanks as always for the prayers, comments and encouraging words. We hope everyone is doing well and please keep Zander, Ethan and Raymond Powell in your prayers. I will write again soon. Keep moving along boys, We love you! Clancy
