Remembering our PRECIOUS Brent on his birthday..

He will always be "our hero and friend"...

I've always loved this thought:

"In God's plan every life is long enough and every death is timely.

And though you and I might wish for a longer life, God knows better.
And - this is very important - though you and I may wish a longer life for our loved ones,
they don't.
Ironically, the first to accept God's decision of death is the one who dies.

While we are shaking heads in disbelief, they are lifting hands to worship.
While we are mourning at a grave, they are marveling at heaven.

While we are questioning God, they are praising God."

My heart goes out to you. You do not know me I was just browsing my favorite blogs of the day and clicked on your site. I love the words you have wrote. Your son seemed like a precious child of whom God was pleased with. He will forever be a sweet angel.
I do not know the struggles as a mom that you had to face during this time. I am a mom and could not imagine losing either one of my children. I pray God's peace with always be with you and your family.
He is forever in your heart.
God bless you.

Dearest Tonya,

What a sweet and special tribute! I am sure yesterday was another tough day w/o Brent, but it was also another day closer to seeing his handsome face again!

I can't even imagine what a birthday party in heaven must be like. How amazing!

You are in my prayers.
Love, Kristin
