Baby Jordan



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…

The Petty Bunch is what we have called our family since Bill and I (Janina) began our family back in the early 1980s. We have gone down many roads together - homeschooling our kiddoes, enjoying the freedom of entrepreneurship many years, working at "real jobs" other years. Through it all, we have been loved with God's everlasting love, and have found that underneath are His everlasting arms! We are blessed to have been married for over 36 years, and have 3 incredible adult children, a wonderful daughter-in-law, an amazing son-in-law, and SEVEN grandchildren: four precious granddaughters, three handsome grandsons - so far. We are empty nesters, still enjoy the life of an entrepreneur and the freedom it gives us to continue enjoying our kids and now, their kids!

  5. I am not sure, but I thought Emily said this little one’s funeral is today. I am pray for them and all of you this morning. I can’t imagine the pain you’re all suffering with this kind of loss and I’m praying God will bring peace and healing. I don’t know this family at all but my heart is breaking for them, trying to imagine what they must be feeling at losing their precious little one.
