"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

The Last Video and Picture


We think this video was taken two days before she died. I just love how expressive her hands are.  At one point, it feels like they are saying "drum roll please......then wait for it.......wait for it....'ta da!" I like the little hand tussle between Abigail and Rachel.  (Let go! I want to do it myself!) I remember passing them in the Living Room, busy with other things.  I almost didn't take the video and I am so very glad that I did now...

Wearing Jean Shorts! Picture taken on July 29. I want so much to scoop her up and cradle her body in my arms....kiss those delicious soft cheeks!!!

Thanks for sharing the ups and downs with us. I feel that I have no words to say because I haven't been in your shoes but I am grieving with you and your family and you are all in my prayers daily.

How precious that video is! I love the picture as well. Still very hard to believe she is gone even for me. I'm praying along with you and so is my church. I have had a lot of people ask about how you guys are doing. I know and believe that this is tough for you guys especially for the children. Thinking and praying daily for you all

I love the video and how they are all interacting together. What a gift to have on film. Rachel is just beautiful...I can hardly fathom her not being with you now, but with Jesus. You guys are constantly in our prayers and we will especially pray for Ethan and Abigail.
