(as an update, I am sharing the latest Grateful Prayer Thankful Heart newsletter here for those who missed it)
Heartbroken with the sudden and unimaginable loss of a daughter and grandson, a wife and a child, from labor complications.
It is with the heaviest heart I share unimaginable sadness.
My dear sister has lost her precious daughter and grandson.
Her dear son-in-law has lost his beloved wife and his perfect baby boy.
a healthy pregnancy
grief beyond measure
a young woman with a smile that brightened the world
with a heart even bigger
a baby so perfect even in silence
prayers for this family
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes
In the blink of an eye, lives are changed and I try to be a help and encouragement to those are hurting so deeply. When time and inspiration permits I will resume posting. I plan to share a recipe Toni gave me years ago. I wish you could have known her. She would have brightened your day.
Amazing Grace was sung at the service for Toni and baby Trey. It was most lovely. If you’d like to read all of the words, click my recent post, John Newton’s Amazing Grace.
Or listen to the song on YouTube by Alan Jackson as Toni loved country music.
Oh, my dear friend, my heart has ached for you and your family since I first heard of your loss. Reading your words here again remind me that we need to hold each day as precious and time with our dear ones as more special than we usually do. I pray that God will continue to hold each of you close as you walk the hard road we face.
Praying for God’s comfort for you and your family, and extending my deepest sympathy.
That is so heartbreaking and shocking. Sending prayers to you and Toni’s family to help through the difficult time.
Dear Lord… please watch over and protect this family during this time of incredible grief and sadness. I am so so sorry.
Eyes welling up with tears. Your post was heartbreaking yet tender at the same time…

There are no words. You are all in my thoughts. A hug.
I can’t even imagine the depth of grief for your family. Thinking of you, your sister and Toni’s husband.

Oh, Lorraine, I am so sad for you and this precious husband, her parents and all concerned. What a shock! We so often just take childbirth for granted as we do life. May the Lord bring comfort and peace during this tough time. Love and hugs!
Oh, Lorraine, my own heart aches with this news! Yes, “unimaginable sadness.” My own daughter delivered a healthy baby son just a few days before this tragedy in your family . . . and I truly cannot imagine.
Dear God, have mercy!
You have my prayers for this dear girl’s mother and husband, this sweet baby’s grandmother and father, and all who loved them!
Words are hard to come by with such shocking news, I am thinking of you and your family.
