Update: Andrew

It is with a heavy heart that I give you this update. I received a text from Melanie a little while ago saying, "Andrew went to heaven today."

There are no words. Only tears. God has given me an idea about how to honor Andrew's courage and legacy. I will let you know as it progresses.

For now. No words. Only tears.

Then they sat on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights. No one said a word to him, because they saw how great his suffering was. Job 2:13

This little precious angel is now with Jesus. Through our tears we know that for those that love Jesus, it is only a little while and soon we will be rejoined with those we love. Jesus promise that and that we can depend on. Melanie and her precious family will continue to be in my prayers...

Oh, I just heard through Angela's blog. I've prayed for this boy and his mom and I'm so sorry about Andrew. I know he is with the Father now, but I know his mom is hurting so badly. I have lost a child, and there is no pain to compare with it, I feel anyway.

I will be praying for her and hope you will keep us updated--if there is anything we can do!

Warren Baldwin said...

It is with heavy hearts that we receive this news. We know, though, that Andrew is rejoicing now as he enjoys his eternal victory. Thanks for the update.

Cathy let me know about this last night. I hated to hear this sad message! But we know that Andrew is in that Heavenly place with the Lord. It's sad here on earth for his family and friends, but can we even imagine what it's like for him at this moment.

Praying for Melanie and her family for peace during this trying time. My prayers are with her and the family who loved Andrew so dearly.
