earthly good-byes

today my sweet friend and her
family will lay to rest little Cash

he said his earthly good-bye this past friday
while in his mommy's arms
we who know the Lord...
are reassured that this is not a final good-bye
just an earthly one

and even though we know this is true,
that the good-bye is not a final good-bye
I know this is still going to be so very painful
for the sweet family...
he leaves behind a mommy, daddy and two little brothers
and many, many other loved ones

my friend has to say an earthly good-bye to her little grandson...
such a young little life, so full of laughter
and fun...
I would pray that they will be comforted
by the knowledge that little Cash is happy and in our
Father's arm right now.

if you have a moment, please think of and pray for peace and comfort
for my friend and the whole family today...

if you want to read about Cash here is the blog obituary

I know this is not the blog post you may have wanted to read today...I hesitated to post it...but I felt it needed to be posted.

may you have a wonderful day today...give that family of yours a hug!

My heart is breaking for this family. I visited their site and offered my condolences. Thanks for sharing.

We have often entertained angels unaware. Cash was certainly one of them. Prayers for all....

So very sorry for this family and friends of this little one gone too soon.
This makes my heart break.

May God comfort those close to Cash.

So sorry to hear about this precious family's loss. I think it's beautiful that you wrote this to honor Cash.

Praying for them all!! So very sad. I can't image lossing a child or grandchildren, but know friends who have. I think you needed to post this and that we as bloggers/writers should post what we feel we need to. Follow our hearts in the good and the sad times.

Beautiful tribute. Hugh HUG sent to you All!!! ~ Coreen xoxoxo

What strength
you have, my

about this little
one in such a
beautiful way.
I continue to hold
