Holden

There are really no words with what has been going on in my life since last Saturday, but I wanted to share my sister's blog with you....it will help explain. If you scroll to the second page, you can read Holden's story. My beautiful nephew.

I made Sarah and Chet this card. It's simple, but I wanted to get it done this morning. His one-week birthday. I'm going to mail it to them.

Thanks for reading!

I had already sent you a message on FB prior to checking on here. You and your family are in my prayers Charys and I've been thinking of you guys everyday since I learned what happened. I cannot imagine the pain you all are going through and I won't pretend that I do, just know that Holden's story has touched my life and I will be a better mom because of him. Your sister and Chet sound like amazing people who have a great support system and I pray that God will give you peace and strength. Love you.

Thank you for sharing her blog with us. She, Chet, you, Scott, your family have all been in my prayers since I read the news when you shared on Facebook. Your sister is INCREDIBLE. I can't believe her strength. I'd be angry, she instead has peace. I know that Holden is watching over his parents, and giving them the strength they need to get though.

It's heartbreaking when this happens. There's no explanation WHY it happens. But I guess God has a reason. Please let us know how everyone is doing as time passes.

Thank you for sharing Sarah's blog Charys. It allowed me to grieve for Holden and his family. What a beautiful boy Holden is, and what an amazing and special woman Sarah is. I continue to pray for all of you.

My heart just aches for your family. You are all in my prayers and have been since I first heard. Those letters to Holden were beautiful. He was the most beautiful baby boy. ((hugs)). Your sister is so strong. I am afraid I would be a crumbled mess and never be able to see things the way she is.

Again my heart and condolences go out to Sarah, Chet, you, Scott and the rest of your family. I have been keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers since I found out as well. I read her blog yesterday and the letters to Holden are just amazing. Sarah (&Chet) have such strength that is truly remarkable. Holden is a beautiful baby and those pictures and video are a wonderful tribute to him.

I hope you all continue to find the faith and strength that you need to get through this difficult time. Please update us when you can...and if there is anything that we can do please let us know.

Thank you for sharing. ***Big Hugs*** my friend

Thank you for sharing. I want to pray for your sister, her husband, and their little angel, and I will often in the days to come. What overwhelms me most in reading her blog is what a wonderful strength and love she shows. Just reading the blog has touched my heart in ways I can't explain and reminded me to trust God in my own small loss. I pray that they will continue to find that love and peace in the continuing weeks. I also pray that you will be comforted in the loss of your nephew... Huge hugs to you, special lady.

Charys - I read your sister's incredible letter to Holden and I can't stop crying, I cannot imagine going thru that. Your sister is lucky to have you in her life (and your collective faith to help you all thru this). Hugs to you and your family Charys!

Charys, I can't even begin to imagine what Sarah and Chet are going through right now. I have been thinking about all of you ever since I saw your update on facebook last Saturday. Thank you for sharing the link to their blog. I am there now, but haven't checked everything out yet. Holden is such a beautiful baby boy.

The loss of a child is such a sad thing to go through. But your sister's words are so amazingly beautiful to read. I find myself sadden reading sweet Holden's story, yet I find this sense of peace within his Mommy's words. She is an amazing woman. I just want to reach through the computer and hug her, and thank her for sharing her story with us. If I was have someone close to me lose a child, I would want them to read her incredible words. I think that someone else in her situation could be helped by her words.

Thank you for sharing such a beautiful and profound story of love. It brought me to tears. It also brought back memories of what my sister went through when she lost her daughter. Your sister is incredibly strong and forgiving, she's very much one to look up to! You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Please give your sister a huge hug for me! :bigarmhug:
