Please pray

jel48July 12, 2013

Please pray for my family. My grandson, Maison, 20 month old son of my stepdaughter, Emi and her boyfriend Josh, fell from a second story window last night. He has failed all neurological tests. They will be repeated in a few hours, but it's just to confirm what we already know. Please, please, prayers and good wishes only. We are hurting so bad right now. Please no negative comments.

How heartbreaking for you and your family, Jel. Medical miracles occur, so let's hope and pray for that. Keep us posted. I know the doctors will do everything possible.

Thank you all, for your prayers and kind thoughts and support. This kind of love and support is what has kept us going the last few days. I am sorry to have kept you waiting so long for more information.

Maison is a bright spot in the lives of everyone who knows him. He has the biggest, most delighted smile, and it absolutely lights up the entire room! He has such a personality for such a little guy!

Maison left us late Friday. He has a grandmother (Emi's mother) and other family members who, I am sure, were waiting to meet him with open arms. I know that smile is absolutely lighting up heaven now.

We will miss him so much.

Please continue to pray for all of us who were left behind.

Plans have not been finalized (later today) but the funeral will most likely be Thursday or Friday. Emi has a brother in the Marines who will not be able to get here until late Wednesday. We will wait for him.

Again, I have kept you waiting for a long time for an update and my very grateful thank you.

Saturday, we celebrated the life of, and said goodbye to the earthly body of our grandson, Maison. I can't begin to describe the feelings that one has, saying goodbye, even with the sure knowledge that a much loved grandchild is now in the arms of Jesus. I know that others here have had to say similar goodbyes. This is so much different than losing a grandparent, parent, or even a sister, as I did a few years ago. You never think that you will be here beyond the time of your children or grandchildren. And even then, I know it is so much worse for Emi and Josh, because they have to go to bed each night without him and wake each morning without him.

At the same time, we have been truly blessed to have him in our lives, and to share his brief 20 months on earth, with him.

Thank you everyone, for all of your love, prayers, and support. We appreciate all of you so much. You give us strength.

Please continue to keep all of us in your prayers. Emi and Josh, Josh's family, and Emi's family.
