Evidence of Love and Support!

I wanted to share some of the beautiful cards and tags that I have received during all of this. It has been so uplifting to go to the mailbox and find another package or another card. All from wonderful people who are helping me get through this.

If you are one of those people that have taken time out for me to pray, to donate, to create and send a card, to write an e-mail, to think about Joey, PLEASE know how much I love and appreciate you.

I hope you realize what a significant help you have been to our family. It isn't what you do, it's that you do it. That you take the time to help me feel better. I have felt your love and strength and I am so grateful to you.

Love to you all!!


  1. Sending you much love Jen!


  2. It was a pleasure, helping you cope in these small ways, Jen! Gosh, I wish there were more that I could do! Hang on to your hope and faith! {{{{{{Hugs}}}}}}

  5. I have kept the prayer of Teresa of Avila stuck on the door of my dining room hutch for years, contemplating it every time I pass by. For those who aren't familiar with her words, it goes like this:

    "Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ's compassion is to look out to the world. Yours are the feet with which Christ is to go about doing good. Yours are the hands with which Christ is to bless all people now."

    Now, as I read all of the words of love and encouragement on your blog, on 2Peas, and elsewhere, I see Christ at work in this situation. I'm so sad for you and wish I could make it all go away. Yet the outpouring of love and empathy I see amazes me and gives me hope for the world.

    I wish I had some words that would truly comfort, but as a mom I know there's just nothing I can say, except, I'll be praying for you.

  6. Isaiah 41:10
    Fear not, for I AM with thee: be not dimayed for I AM your God. I will strengthen you. yea, I will help you. I will uphold you with my rightous right hand...

    I cannot begin to know what you are going through BUT I KNOW the GOD who does. I pray that He will give you HIs peace, His love, and send His people to comfort you today. May you feel the everlasting arms of Jesus holding you and your family at this difficult time.
    I am lifting you up before the throne today!!

  10. Jen, I learned about your son by reading Lisa's blog. I have a 12 year old son, too. I can't imagine what you're going through.
    It sounds like you have amazing faith. I know our Heavenly Father is here for us. He can comfort, He can heal and He can just plain love us. I will keep your family in my heart.
    Love and hugs,

  11. God Bless you hun.. and your family... and your precious Joey.

  12. I know how hard it is, I'm amazed at your strength! I work at Primary Children's on the infant unit, and I know the heartache, and the pain you have to go through. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Always.

  14. Jen...our whole family has been praying for your whole family...my girls often ask how Joey is doing. My Wednesday night class of 3-5th grade girls have been praying for Joey as well. I can not imagine what you are going through personally. I wish I was there to hug you and cry with you. Sharon Laakkonen

  15. Jen I am so so sorry for your loss. I am not a member at 2peas, but I read where you lost your sweet Joey last nite. We have been thinking and praying for you all. I can't imagine how hard this is for you. Nothing I can say or feel can help you now, but please know I am thinking of you all.

  16. Hi Jen, Heard about you over on Lisa's blog. I'm sending Joey, you and your family my prayers and well wishes. My heart goes out to you *hugs*.

  17. My children and I have heavy hearts tonight. Joey and your family have been @ the forefront of our minds, hearts and prayers. Sending you a million and one hugs. I am so very sorry...

  18. From 2peas I know that your beautiful son has passed. I am so sorry and know nothing will take away the pain or the hole in your heart. Lean on everyone around you, so many people care about you and are praying for you & your family.
    Please accept my condolences and know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  19. Jen, you and your whole family have been in my prayers. I am weeping right now for your loss...so thankful Joey did not go fearfully but peacefully. My heart is breaking for you...I can't imagine how difficult it is to say good-bye. Hugs and comforting thoughts going out to you!

  20. Jen, I heard about Joey on 2peas and have been thinking of you for days since.
    My heart is aching for you and your family. I hope you find peace knowing that Joey is no longer suffering, and that he is, and always will be, so very loved.
    Thinking of you lots today....

  21. I am sending so many prayers your way! I am so sorry for your loss. There are really no words that can comfort at a time like this, but I will pray that Heavenly Father will send angels to attend you and your family not just right now but in the months and years to come! Remember you don't have to be "strong" for anyone! Let it all out. It's okay to feel what you are feeling!


  22. Jen,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I can not imagine what that must feel like. I have followed your journey and admire your strength. I will hug my girls a bit tighter tonight; which I believe is Joey's gift to all of us...reminding us what family is all about.
    May you find peace,

  23. Thoughts and Prayers are with you.

  24. Jen, I'm so sorry. I have been and will continue to pray for you and your family. I'm posting on my blog tonight as well, so my readers can also be praying for you. May God comfort and give you, your husband, and your children peace and strength at this terribly sad time. Sending prayers and hugs to you and yours.

  25. Sending love, hugs and prayers from N Ireland.
