    You have never seen me, but l know Carter from daycare. He was such a precious little soul. He never had a frown on his face. He would greet me at the door at daycare and hug my knees. I will miss him, and so will my children. When l told Serenity and Tristan about his passing, Serenity told me that Jesus got another angel. I totally agree with her.

    Take comfort in the memories you shared with Carter. He was loved by many, including us. Peace be with you.

    My heart is heavy with the news of your child’s passing. May the Lord wrap his arms around you in comfort, may He give you the guidance and strength to embrace knowing that Carter is forever watching from above with his angel wings and may He answer your questions as they come. I don’t recall the scripture verbatim, when we lost my Nephew 26 years ago, our Pastor said it’s natural to ask why, to know that God has a plan, and we may never have solid answers, but that is because He wants us to carry on, keep our loved ones memory alive and hard as it may be, move forward. You each will be in our hearts, thoughts and prayers….Miss MaLinda and family (friend of Adonis and Della) in Ottawa, KS God bless you all.
