Shannon,
What a beautiful Baby! I'm so sorry for you and your family's loss. You and your family's faith is an encouragement to so many! God Bless You all.

I love Psalm 34:

17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
19 A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all;

Keeping you all in my prayers!

Shannon,
I have just now learned of your family's loss. I can't begin to imagine the pain that you all are feeling. I am praying that Jesus wraps his peaceful and loving arms around you all...as only he can. Baby Reese was too precious for words. Devastations such as this make everything else in the world seem so small and minute. Once again, my prayers are with you all.

God Bless your family,

Shannon I don't even know what to say. My heart is just breaking for you and your family. Reese is a beautiful Angel. Praying for all of you at this difficult time.

HeathahLee said...

Oh, Shannon, I am so sorry. My best friend, Kathy, has had to bury a child, so I've seen the pain firsthand, not having the slightest clue of what to do. Kathy recently told me (after burying Beth 6 years ago) that just being able to talk to me and know that I listened was the best thing I could do for her. I know Jason and Katie are so very blessed to have a sister like you!

Shannon, ever since I first heard word about Reece's early arrival and that the Rowe's needed prayer, your family has been in my thoughts and prayers often. I know how much you love Zach and are involved in his life, so I can imagine you are grieving the loss of your own memories, as well as those of your family. I am thankful that the peace and comfort of the Lord is with your family in this time and for the faith that ya'll have had in the midst of this situation. I am so sorry for your loss! Praying for your sweet family!
