    I am so sorry for your family’s loss of a sweet little warrior.
    Fly high sweet angel.
    I give you this, one thought to keep.
    I am with you still, I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,I am the sunlight on the ripened grain . I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the mornings hush, I am the swift uplifting rush.
    Of quiet birds in circled flight
    I am the soft stars that shine at night..
    Do not think of me as gone. I am with you still in each new dawn.

    Debi & Family,

    I wish I had the words, to say just how I feel,
    They all seem to escape me, except I know this pain is real.
    My heart is breaking for you, that CJ had to go away,
    Please take comfort in knowing,
    In Jesus’ arms he’ll stay.

    Sending you & your family many Prayers, hugs, & love. I am so very sorry for your loss.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of this precious little boy. I have two grandsons in heaven, and their loss was devastating, but I know where they are and I will see them when I die. My consolation comes from the Bible, which lets us know that all babies will be welcomed in heaven, and are safe with Jesus Christ. May the Lord give you His peace, which passes understanding. Philippians 4:6-7.
