Joey, Jess and Walker – I feel as if I know all of you through Brenda.  My heart is broken for all of you and your family and friends.  As a mother who has lost her only child, I know your pain.  I was lucky enough to have my son, Seth, for 17 years.  The happiness that Adriana Joy brought to you in her short life is irreplaceable.  You are a beautiful family and I know that you have a long road ahead.  Please keep every memory, smile and moment close in your hearts.  A pastor once asked…”if God told you that you could choose to have your child again knowing that it would only be for a short time…would you do it?”  I know that I would because it is a love like no other.  Please take care of yourselves, she is always with you.

My heart is breaking for you and your entire family. My granddaughter Ariana is in the three-year-old class at Trinity. I was so sorry to hear of the loss of your little girl especially as I just had a great granddaughter born in December. May God keep his hand upon you at this time and give you peace and comfort.

My deepest condolences to the parents of Adriana Jo.  The hardest thing for parents to handle is the untimely passing of their precious little one, especially at such a tender age.  May you find comfort and peace for your hearts from God’s word the Bible.  When words fail us, we can always turn to his word to ease our pain and bring us a measure of happiness from his beautiful promises of seeing our loved ones again very soon.  Promises such as found at Revelation 21:3, 4 where he promises ‘death will be no more.’  May the God of all comfort be with you at this time.  (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4, Phillippians 4:6, 7)
