pictures from the last time I held my baby

Here are some pictures from Rowan's funeral. We are blessed beyond words with family, friends and fellow believers. Praise God for all of those who have stood beside us as we journey through this trying time.

Jeff did a wonderful job of sharing The Word,
and honoring our tiny angel.

pictures of Rowan, and the elephant from Josh (you're the best). Rowan was buried on top of Matt's great grandmother's casket. It was so incredible of the funeral home to allow us to use the same plot. All we paid for was the headstone for Rowan. It should be here in about 2 weeks, the stone in this picture is for Matt's great-grandmother (who was one of the 1st to be buried at Roselawn in 1972).

our Rowan was loved by so many...

Oh my precious new friend. How my heart aches for you and for your husband. In times like this, I have trouble finding words that seem appropriate, and as I've lost two babies myself I know that words simply do not suffice when a mother's heart, a parents heart, is broken.

You seem to have knowledge of the fact that our precious Father has not forsaken you, and is not out to spite you. For that, I am so happy for your heart and for your mind. How would we ever be mended witout the help of our gracious Father?

Praying that your relationship with Christ grows to a new level through your grief, and you find comfort in the grace that He covers you with.

Many blessings to you. Hugs. :0)
