My Sweet Angel

It has been one week since my little man became an angel with wings larger and more beautiful than I can ever imagine. In his short time he has shown me so much - how to love someone so deeply and truly, how to love someone that I never really had a chance to get to know. He will always be perfect and now he has a perfect playground in heaven. I miss him everyday and I know that people say it will get easier but now I don't see how it is possible. I prayed for so long to just be able to bring him home but now I would give anything to be back at the hospital with him.
Yesterday, Shane & I went to the funeral of a very special lady who we came to love the moment we started FBC Lake Providence. Mrs. Audrey Batton was 93 years old and went to be with the Lord on Friday. She taught in the children's ministry for 60 years and she was sharp as a tack. She always had a smile on her face and knew everyone by name. Our church lost the youngest and oldest in one week but at least I know that Ms. Audrey is taking care of my baby in heaven.
Many people have sent us letters, notes, and e-mails, and I do apologize for not getting back sooner but we are trying to spend as much time as possible with our older two boys right now. Hunter has realized what has happened and asking a lot of questions.
Please continue to leave comments andsend notes, e-mails and I promise I will try to do better.

Though He brings grief, He will show compassion, so great is His unfailing love.
Lamentations 3:32

You don't have to apologize for not replying to anything/anyone. I don't think anyone expects that of you right now. I just wanted to leave a note to let you know you are in my thoughts every day. I loved seeing the pictures of your sweet family and appreciate you sharing them with us. I was going to say one day at a time but I know for you right now it's one moment at a time.
((((BIG HUGS)))) for your whole family!!

I am so gald to see you writing and posting again. I have learned so much from you and your family. You have taught me so much about unconditional love and faith... that still amazes me. I am very proud we are a part of the same family. Your littlest boy was a tremendous testimony of God's miraculous works. Although I'm sure you miss him every moment, he more than deserves to be one His angels with the biggest pair of wings.
With love and adoration!
