Can you continue to pray for this family? Lisa was able to hold her son for half and hour (correction she held him for an hour AND a half!). That is a blessing, a blessing she had been praying for. I know it is going to be hard for them to see this as a blessing as they just lost a son but I pray that at some point they do and can be comforted by that.

This death has really effected me. I am not sure why, but I just can't stop from crying for this family. There has been so much pain and death lately. It's hard to see people you know, care for, or are close to go through such devastating events. But I stand firm in the knowledge that God loves us and he feels our pain with us. He never wanted the world to be like this and someday we will see a heaven that is free from all this crud.

Your friend's story has affected me too, and I don't even know her. It breaks my heart whenever I hear of a parent losing their child. I cry for them and can't shake the thought of how sad they must be and how sad I would be. I have such a fear of losing one of my own and it really breaks my heart when I hear about that fear coming true for someone else....even if I don't know them. I'm still praying for your friend and that she'll be comforted and find peace. :o(

I thought you would want to read what Christy Nordstrom wrote on her blog today....

By The Nordstrom Family

I met someone today, but only for a little while. His time with us was too short. He's made an impression on my heart, praise God, as only little ones can. He reminded me of my own child that I am waiting to hold again: tiny, sweet, soft... What a privilege to be allowed to experience precious moments with someone who's moments are known to be few. This is a treasure I will always hold dear, a gift I've been given today.
I witnessed a mother who bravely walked through painful waters and led her children safely through as they said hello and goodbye to their baby brother all in one day. She soaked in every second with him and took her time making beautiful memories and allowing others to make their memories, too. I watched a father, who's heart, I'm sure, is full of grief for a son he can not save, being strong for his wife and family. There were so many different broken hearts in that room, grandparents and friends, enjoying the moment and holding sadness at bay. It was the time to enjoy little Logan, and we did. Even the nurse was touched by his life. I caught her outside the room, releasing her emotions, tears flowing down her face as she expressed her admiration for her patient. Pictures were taken, hand and foot prints made, but all of these things are really just extra... he will never be forgotten.
Thank you Jesus for Logan, I accept your answer to our prayers but we'll all need help walking through our grief. I pray especially for his parents, bless them for trusting you and allowing you to control this outcome. Sustain them through this painful time. We leave Logan safely in your arms until we can see him again. In Jesus name, AMEN.

Love you. We can get through all things as Christ is our strength.
