  • My cousin died as a hero. A true hero. He was someone who radiated so much joy. Please keep this in your prayers. I will always be blessed to have had him as family. Love you, Riley. #CharlotteStrong #RileyStrong

  • hi, so honestly im not a fan of long insta captions. but yes they can serve their purpose so i want yall to read this: 
There are so many things I could say right now about the tragedy my family and I have been through these past few weeks. But I just want to seriously thank everyone who has reached out in any way, for paying respects, for your kind words, thoughts, prayers, letters, donations, anything and everything I really appreciate and I know my family does as well.
~ ~ ~
we were blessed to have Ri, and if you knew him, you were lucky to know him ! A sweet soul who had a love for those around him and for what really mattered. My goofy, protective, kind, funny personal body guard, he was my best friend and living the rest of this life without him is going to be indescribably difficult. And as a community, this sucks. To everyone who has been affected by this, remember that while this hurts, we are sad for us, not for him, because Riley is in the best place imaginable with his creator and angel friends. Remember that God is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. and I have no doubt we will see Riley soon❤️ ~ ~ ~
The reality of this even happening in the first place is hard to grasp, and im sure its been seen floating around social media, but in order to make a difference, some really incredible people in Riley’s life have started a foundation in his name to raise money for families that have been affected by gun violence, the Riley Howell Foundation. We have officially released details today so keep your eyes open for that, and any kind of monetary support would mean the world, the website link is in my bio ~ ~ ~
I’m forever proud of my older brother, Ri is a hero and his legacy will live on always! To everyone who reads this I hope Riley’s actions have moved you all to make an effort to love those around you endlessly and those close to you unconditionally, to do more, and to fear less. 🧡 #rileystrong

  • Real talk ladies, working out when your monthly friend visits you just sucks 🥴
—
But really it’s like a true blessing and a curse because after you get over the hump of getting your bloated cranky self into the gym you feel oh so much better afterwards. Hello endorphins goodbye cramps 💪🏽
—
I always remember when things get really hard in a workout and my trainer can tell I wanna quit, he hits me with the old “It’s only hurts for about ten seconds” line. Usually in the moment I scowl at him but I know he’s right. Same thing applies for the dreaded red tide week. Just food for thought 🤯
—
And side note...last week when he gave me that circuit and told me I could do the push ups on my knees I got excited for half a second and then realized that combo he put together is quit the finisher. 15 swings, then 8 push-ups, then 14 swings, then 8 pushups, then 13, all the way down to one. Ouch 😰

Cheers to the babes out there that got it in despite what Mother Nature is trying to pull. #WeGotThis ❤️

  • Sweet little @riley_yorkie... how LUCKY was I to get to know this sweet little soul! He was so full of life, so spunky and fun! A therapy dog, agility superstar, loving pup and perfect model 🐶✨ I'll treasure the photos I have of him and moments we shared on our photo adventures with his mom Deb. 🐾⁣⠀
⁣⠀
As many in our community have heard, Riley was attacked and killed by a small female Pitbull at the end of his walk earlier this week. A distracted woman let go of the leash, and nothing could be done in time to save him. My heart dropped and eyes filled with tears the minute I heard. 💔⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Riley could always bring a smile to your face with his cute personality and colorful photos 🧡 Head over to his page and leave some love & may Riley live on in our vivid memories of him forever! ⁣🌈✨

  • One year ago; heard the most devastating words a mother could hear and it was your child has cancer. She was diagnosed on this day last year with acute lymphoblastic leukemia B-Cell. We was admitted in Cincinnati Childrens hospital May 22-Jul 13. And she’s been in remission since August, and started maintenance therapy in January. This most definitely has been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to deal with, it’s still not over! We’re continuing to fight it, and cure it! Be able to look back at each other and say we did together! We beat cancers ass! This has not been easy. And we have two more years of chemotherapy! #RileyStrong #keepitupbabygirl #princesswarrior #beatleukemia #herfightismyfight #inthisfamilynoonefightsalone❤️ #lovemyriley

  • Every visit to campus by Rt. Rev. José A. McLoughlin, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina, is considered a special occasion.
-
Wednesday fit the bill in more ways than one.
-
Five Greenies took part in the sacramental rite of confirmation during Christ School's last Eucharist Chapel service of the 2018-19 school year – Ashe Hamrick '21, Connor Booher '20, Mitchell Donahoo '21, Peyton Surface '19, and Spencer Strickland '22. According to the Book of Common Prayer, candidates for confirmation "express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop."
-
Later on Wednesday, the Bishop also blessed 300 #RileyStrong bracelets that faculty and students will be wearing to honor the life of UNC Charlotte shooting victim Riley Howell. Howell has a personal connection to Christ School – one of his cousins is Greenie senior Hank Pritchard '19.

  • Riley is my oldest friend. After being diagnosed with a brain tumor a little over a month ago, he has used his testimony to share the peace that God has given him with others. Rather than becoming discouraged or feeling sorry for himself, he’s actually been an encouragement to those around him. Please support my friend with your prayers and at the Spaghetti Fundraiser this Thursday that will help to cover his medical and travel expenses for treatment. #RileyStrong

  • Good morning friends and furrends - with so many wonderful people and pups in our Instagram family. This is Debbie - Riley’s mom - doing a quick takeover of his account today. Many of you have heard the tragic news - Riley was attacked and killed by a small female pit bull at the end of our driveway on Saturday morning as we were finishing our morning walk. The handler was distracted scooping up that dog’s poop and quickly lost control of the leash. They were behind a large camper van parked in front of the building next door so I could not see them until we were about 30 feet away. Despite myself, the woman handling her boyfriend’s dog, and another neighbor who grabbed a broom and then a shovel, we could not save Riley. I will say that I do know some sweet pit bulls with responsible owners, but this was not the case here. 💔💔💔 Words can not express the pain I have been feeling the past four days. Today is #nationalloveyourpetday and for me, that was every single day of the 12 years I was privileged to have him with me. He was a wonderful, spunky, super smart dog who served as a therapy dog at St John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, along with reading dog work at @grantgeckos_smmusd and Muir Elementary for about six years. We did agility classes and competitions for seven years until he had his second knee surgery in 2016. Most recently I had really focused on trying to make his senior years fun - by taking him to some of the best street art all over California and meeting up with so many new Instagram dog friends and family over the last two years when I started to post more regularly. Many of you amazing people have been sending so much love to me and Riley. I am going to be reaching out to you individually over the next day or two. I cannot thank this community enough. I will continue to post lots and lots of Riley photos and videos - I have thousands banked. Thank you. 🙏🏻💔💗
