Thankful we do not mourn as those who have no hope.[1 Thess 4:13]

  4. Tiny Angels rest your wings
    sit with me for awhile.
    How I long to hold your hand,
    And see your tender smile.
    Tiny Angel, look at me,
    I want this image clear....
    That I will forget your precious face
    Is my biggest fear.
    Tiny Angel can you tell me,
    Why you have gone away?
    You weren't here for very long....
    Why is it, you couldn't stay?
    Tiny Angel shook his head,
    "These things I do not know....
    But I do know that you love me,
    And that I love you so".

  5. So very sorry for your loss! Your beautiful little Logan has touched so many of us. Know that you are being wrapped in love and hugs from us. Praying you will know God's comfort. --Rick & Anita

    Your experience has touched us all, and God's comfort and guidance for you has been a gentle reminder of His loving care for us all.

  10. What a hard thing to post, thanks for thinking of us during this trying time. So sorry to hear of your loss on this earth, may God comfort you as you face the days ahead. Love, Shawn and Dora, and children

  11. So sorry to hear this sad news. Logan was a precious little bundle. Praying you will know God's comfort that only He can give. Love, Roger & Arlene

  12. I was reading Logan's blog before I went to bed last night. Special to know as much as you love him, God loves him more. When David's child died and he arose and ate, he was asked why he stopped fasting. He replied "I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me." (II Sam 12:23) Love to think about these little ones in a place we look forward to reaching as well.

    No more words... just prayers for your comfort and assurance that you're being thought of from Indiana.

    With love,
    Joel Riggs

  13. My father said that when leading sheep into new pasture, sometimes they wouldn't go. He would pick up a little lamb into his arms, and carry it across to the other side. Then the sheep would follow. Our kind Heavenly Father has taken our little ones to the other side to show us it is safe for us to follow when He calls us.
    May you know the comfort wherewith our kind Heavenly Father, comforted us in our time of need. Love and Care from us both, Dorine and Sherm

  14. Our hearts and love reach out to all of the family - at the passing of our dear tiny cousin - He touched many lives in a very short time!

  15. Our thoughts and care are with you... If there's anything we can do, please let us know.
    Lisa and Angela

  16. Deeply sorry for your loss. We lost a baby girl in 1996. She lived only 3 days. But one thing that gave us huge comfort was that her soul was safe. Heaven also has always seemed so much closer knowing that someone we deeply love is there already. And you'll always have a deeper empathy for others knowing these dark times now. Your baby boy was beautiful and he touched many lives in his short one. Sending deep care to you from Wisconsin. Duane and Linda Debelak

  17. Logan came into the world the day God called my Dad home. And to picture them "together" in Abraham's bosom, today, brings tears to my eyes. I can not fathom the deep inward pain you all must be bearing now, but I'm so grateful there is ONE we can talk to, to help us through these days of "doubts and sorrows". May each one be comforted in just the fact that God does care. Although not related by a natural blood, we are all related through the blood of the Prince of the King of Kings. May you each get strength to face each day that lies ahead. Love through the Lamb, Cathy Haddock and family.

  18. My heart aches for all of you. I'm sorry for your loss, but I'm glad that little Logan is at peace. Without a doubt he felt your love every second of every day that he was here. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
