Noah's video/1 month old

It's hard to believe Noah is 1 month old today. It's been such an incredibly difficult month. I didn't think it was possible to shed as many tears as I have these last few weeks. My heart & arms ache for my son SO much!! The kids often talk about what fun he must be having in heaven!!! I can't wait for the day when we are all reunited as a family!!

I wanted to share with you all the video I made for Noah's memorial service. The song I put to it is by Michael W. Smith and it sure feels like it was written just for us as Noah's name is even in it! I will include the lyrics below.

I love you Noah and I'll see you again soon!!!!!

I wanted to post his video directly here but I am having problems with it not showing up correctly. Just go to this link to view it.....

Where's the Navigator of your destiny?
Where is the Dealer of this hand?
Who can explain life and its brevity
'Cause there is nothing here I can understand
You and I have barely met
And I just don't want to let go of you yet
Noah, hello, goodbye
I will see you on the other side
Noah, sweet child of mine
I will see you on the other side
And so I hold your tiny hand in mind
For the hardest thing I've ever had to face
Heaven calls for you before it calls for me
When you get there, save me a place
A place where I, can share your smile
And I can hold you for more than just awhile
Noah, hello, goodbye
I will see you on the other side
Noah, sweet child of mine
I will see you on the other side.


  1. Each month will get a little bit easier but I think the ache never goes away. Sarah's 2nd birthday is coming up in October and I still ache to hold her warm little body. Our son Caleb (who was 3 at the time of her passing) asks to go to heaven frequently so that he can hold her too. It was impossible for me to talk to our son about it in the beginning months after her death but it's become easier in the last year.
    I pray for peace and rest for you!!

  2. It's been 19 yrs since we lost Kerrigan. There are many days that go by where she doesn't come to mind. But there are also days where I sit and cry, sometimes sob, longing to hold my daughter in my arms, to see her with her siblings, to spend time with her. It gets easier in that the hole becomes less obvious. But the pain never goes away, it just doesn't hurt with every step we take.


I enjoy hearing from each & every one of you! Thanks for taking the time to comment. :)
