I want to share this with you... This image was taken the day that Adam was born. That's Adam's mom holding Adam... The lady on the right is my MIL... Adams Great-gradmother. And the little girl in the middle is Lillie, Adams big sister.
Lillie asked to say a few words at Adams funeral. She's 10 and she spoke with out notes and unrehearsed. She started out, "I want to tell you about my brother, Adam." She went on to talk about how he smiled with his whole body, she described how he laughed and how he cackled when she rubed her nose on a "special rib". She talked about what Adam liked and his favorite toys, songs and TV show... and how they played the theme song over and over he'd just smile.... elievable... Then she said, "I want to pray now." and she prayed that God would teach Adam how to crawl, walk, and run... and talk. That there would be plenty of kids for him to play with and told her mom to not be sad because God was holding Adam tight in his arms.... I wish I could remember more of what she said.
I couldn't have done as good of a job as Lillie did. And I certainly couldn't have held it together like Lillie did.
I do believe that God was talking to Adam's mom.... through Lillie.
It was simple yet so powerful.
It was a tear jerker. I'm tearing up right now thinking about.
Thursday was a tough day.
Please continue to pray for Mike, Mary and Lillie...
There is NO love like a mother's love for her child. And there is no grief like the grief over losing a child. I wish this on no one.
Another image of Lillie.
