Safe In the Arms of God

At 8pm tonight, our amazing Lily Grace traveled upon angel's wings to be safe in the arms of God. We feel so blessed to have had Lily with us for 5 1/2 days. She was a real miracle to everyone who met her...surpassing all of our research and expectations. We treasured every moment with her. It was truly a pleasure to care and love for our Lily.

Details for services to follow soon. Thank you for all of your encouraging words and prayers.

What an amazing God we have, allowing you to take Lily to her earthly home before He took her to her heavenly home. You continue to be in our prayers.

Craig and Jessica, On Wednesday night, close to 8 p.m. 5 women held hands at the Pitman church of Christ and prayed for your family as we were being updated by Melva. We will continue to lift you and your precious family up to our Heavenly Father. We praise Him for Lily Grace's short life! Patti Sikes

Craig and Jessica-
I would have loved to have met Lily in person but am so glad that I can look at your blog and see her whenever I want. We are thinking of you all each and every minute. I cannot imagine the pain but I pray you find comfort in knowing Lily is smiling today.
With Love-

A few minutes ago I dropped my engagement ring on the floor and while down on my hands and knees I found myself in profound prayer for Lily, Jessica, Craig, the boys and all their family and friends.

Thank you for sharing this site with me. The photos are precioius treasures.

Although I met Craig under sad circumstances while choosing a headstone for Lily before she was born, it was seeing both of you on December 18th that the magnitude of your burden weighed heavily on my heart also.

Your faith and courage are amazing and Lily Grace could not have picked finer parents!

Please know that you are in my thoughts and in my prayers.

Best regards,
Patricia Seidman

Everytime I look at my children I will remember your beautiful Lily and be so thankful that I can hold them in my arms. I know the heartache you have is something I cant even begin to fathom but I promise you that Lily going to be with Jesus will not go in vain. I am so blessed and touched by you and by your story of faith. Praise God!
