Today was Baby Jordan’s funeral – must have been one of the hardest things I’ve ever experienced. That precious family, hurting, so many questions, so few answers. The pastor who performed the service is a dear friend who has known them (all of us) for over 30 years, and did a beautiful job of sharing God’s love even in the midst of this pain.
I would ask that you continue to pray for Jordan and Bethany when God brings them to mind. They will find themselves at a crossroad when the numbness wears off – to trust God, or to blame Him.
BTW, the autopsy will take 6 – 8 weeks to be finalized, but initial reports appear to show “natural causes” – SIDS may be the final result.
Thank you for your prayers for us and for them.
God bless your day.
My dear, long-time friend, Lori, experienced a great loss yesterday, one I cannot even begin to imagine. She had only recently became a grandmother – Baby Jordan (Jordy) was born in January. He arrived a little early, weighing in at just under 4 pounds, and seemed to be thriving very well. Yesterday, though, Baby Jordy went home to Jesus. We don’t understand, we don’t even know what happened. He just stopped breathing, and the EMTs could not resuscitate him.
Jordy’s young parents are devastated, and my sweet friend is hurting not only for herself, but for her son, Jordan, and Bethany. Pamela and Dannye saw Jordan and Bethany last night, and their pain was almost more than my girls could bear.
Please pray for this family as they deal with all of this. Pray especially that Jordan and Bethany will embrace the Heavenly Father rather than push Him away.
Even from our pain… God bless your day…
