We buried our baby boy yesterday.
We buried our sweet Thomas. 

I thought the service was beautiful.  It was a gorgeous day with blue skies. The flowers were so pretty. Ken and Rick blessed us with their words and did a wonderful job honoring our boy. As Rick said, we were surrounded by the body of Christ and were comforted with each word and hug.

The presence of our friends and family meant more to us than anyone will ever know. We have been overwhelmed by everyone's love and support.   Every hug, card, meal, and flower arrangement has been a blessing to us.  We hope and pray that this is the hardest thing we will ever face.....and we are so grateful that we aren't going through it alone.  

"You're blessed when you feel you've lost what is most dear to you.  Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you."  Matthew 5:4 (MSG)
