Noah's Memorial Service

Today we came together with friends and family to worship God and remember who God is through the life of our little Noah.  It was a wonderful, tear-filled time.  The out powering of love from the people that God has placed in our life was/is truly overwhelming.

For the most part, Noah's story has been told.  What God has done in our hearts has been told.  We will continue to tell and retell his/His story so that what we have learned will not be forgotten.  Just like in the Old Testament when God had the Israelites build altars to remember something that God had done, Noah's life is our testament to what God has done and will continue to do.  He is good.  He is sovereign.  In all things.

Here's the link to the slide show I created and showed at the memorial service.  I'll post Tom's talk when we get it downloaded and uploaded.  He did such an amazing job putting to words God's working in and through this journey.  I'm so proud of him.

It was an amazing service, Jen! Noah and his siblings are blessed with amazing and strong parents. So proud of you both! Good luck in your continued journey towards healing.

We thought about you guys all day on Saturday...and watched the slide show that night. Mark and I were both in tears. What a beautiful tribute to such a precious boy. You are still in our prayers.

I have to admit that recognizing this little one I've prayed for is gone was one of the hardest things. My heartfelt sympathy, I will be praying, grieving and thinking of you all. That video was the most moving thing. Love you all...Draper's

Oh Jen, that was heartbreakingly beautiful. Thank you for letting your light shine even in the midst of such extraordinary circumstances.

I still pray for you and think of you.
