Sammy Update

Hello family and friends. My heart is very heavy right now as I type these words to all of you. You see, it looks like Jesus is calling little Sammy home to heaven where he can be free of all pain and where he can run a jump for joy into the Father's arms. Sammy has lapsed into a coma as of yesterday and the hospice nurse has informed my brother that Sammy will most likely pass in the next 4 days.

Here is a message from his mommy, Jenn:
"Our precious Sammy is now in a coma. Please pray for him as he is preparing to enter into the embrace of his Heavenly Father. While we are grieving, we are certainly at peace knowing that he will soon be in paradise - free of pain, full of joy, and wrapped in the love of Jesus."

I remember the energetic feisty little guy we met for the first time last October and wonder why he can't stay with us and start school in the fall? And yet there is a peace that surpasses all understanding that is lifting all his loved ones up. We do trust that the Father has a plan in everything and we are saddened to lose him but excited for Sammy to experience the unsurpassed joy of being in the presence of Jesus Himself.

"Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not on your own understanding" Prov 3:5

Our lives have truly been blessed by knowing Sammy even for this short time. He is loved so very much by all of us but loved even more by his Heavenly Father and that is a comfort to us all. Thank you so much for all your support and prayers.

Ashley and I are leaving tonight for Washington, as my parents 50th Anniversary party is this coming Saturday. School starts Wednesday so Chester and Christopher are flying out Thursday after school and back on Sunday evening. I may fly directly from Washington to Virginia for his service, we will just have to wait and see what happens. Thank you everyone for your prayers - cherish every moment with your loved ones!
