I am humbled by the strength I see in Natasha and Reese.
They are so strong for Lane, they are so beautiful as a family. A family that so misses that sweet baby boy.
A couple of evenings ago, I watched my dear sister hold our baby girl Hazel. Her smile was warm and gentle as her tears were flowing. What a natural, loving mom she is.
My nephew Lane also held Hazel and showed us all the "tricks" he knows....he is a pro with babies because he so loved holding and entertaining Case.
The slideshow that will be played at the funeral has so many beautiful pictures of Lane holding his sweet baby brother, of Reese being a gentle dad, of Natasha with a happiness on her face that I love.
I am humbled by the faith I see in Natasha.
As everyone else will get back to life in the coming weeks, Natasha and Reese will be in the fog and haze of all of this. Keep them on your hearts. God hears our prayers.

Michele~ My brothers Mike and Nathan are friends with your brothers, so I have had the pleasure of watching theses boys grow into fine young men. I pray for your family and their loss and will continue to do so. I just wanted to let you know what wonderful words you have written about Natasha and Reese, and to let you know how lucky the are to have you as their sister.

God Bless!

Romans 5:3-5 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.

Continuing to pray for everyone...

Thinking so much of you and the entire family at this time. Know that we're praying and hoping that even though tomorrow will be such a rough day, that you'll all feel His presence and comfort carrying you through. Just think, heaven is rejoicing with sweet Case in it and I'm sure he's being held and loved on by not only Jesus but by your mama. Hang in there friend~
