    I am so very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is such a difficult thing to experience. Please be comforted by the promises in the Bible. Jesus tells us at John 5:28, 29 that all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. What a loving provision put in place by the God of all comfort so we can have the assured hope of seeing our dead loved ones live again one day. Meanwhile as I pray for that day to come I ask Jehovah God to bless your family and give each of you the strength to endure this most trying time.

    My darling baby, I love you so much and I’m sorry mommy couldn’t do anything to keep you. I miss you and cry for you everyday. I wish everyday I could hold you in my arms and see your smile or hear you cry. I know I can’t blame myself but I do. I hope one day you forgive me for not being able to save you. I will be with you one day. I love you Gabriel Alexander Lee Shelby.
