Well Isaac, we did it.

Each step in this process has been so hard and brought about new waves of grief and tears. Today was no exception. Your dad said it best that there was only one person in the world like you. You were funny and quirky and made us laugh we are so sad that we won’t ever hear your voice again or see your smile.

But Isaac, despite the crummy weather, you were celebrated today. In the last two days so many people came to show us love and support and we are honored and grateful. Your dad and I did our best to share our love for you and even more importantly, the hope we have in Christ.

Isaac I was always so proud to be your mom and until my dying day – that will never change. We mourn because you are gone from our lives now but we cling tight to the promise that this goodbye today is NOT the end.

Son, I have always and will always love you. Mom
