Thank you so much to Aaron Bender, a dear family member who took my camera and got these great shots. They are peaceful, beautiful photos that convey the spirit of that day.

Blue and Kelly,
I am truly sorry for your loss. I wish that I had been there for you just like you were there when I lost my brother. Blue, please know that I love you like my brother. You fill(ed) that role so perfectly. Please know that you and your family are in our prayers. We love you more that words can express. I wish that there was more that I could do or say other than call me if you need me, you know how to reach me, take your time...

Love,
Mavity (and family)

I don't know your family but a mutual friend (Cortney Shurtz) told me of your story. I am so sorry for your loss and know what you are going through. I lost my first child over 2 years ago, he was 3 days old and while the sweet ache never goes away you can find comfort in the gospel and the knowledge we have of the Plan of Salvation. Remember that you are loved deeply by your Heavenly Father and that He is acutely aware of your family. I know you will see your son again and what a sweet reunion! It doesn't feel like it now but it is a blessing to have this experience; testimonies grow, a deeper faith is acquired and your family grows even stronger. Again, I am so sorry for your loss and wish you peace and comfort at this time.

Blue and Kelly, I remembered this quote and thought that it really applies to your family. We feel like a part of your family as well.

“Our family is a circle of love and strength. With every birth and every union, the circle grows. Every joy shared adds more love. Every obstacle faced together makes the circle stronger.”

Love,
Erik and Rennie
