Here is all 6 of us the day Chloe was born. She was 9lbs!

Lilly and Chloe's first picture together. Lilly can't wait until Chloe is ready to play with her!
Beautiful Mom and baby! Welcome to the world Chloe!

I am a friend of Sherry's and I am praying for you. I have cried and prayed for you all morning.

As I shared with Sherry and Amy both this morning, the Lord gave me a verse during my Bible Study this morning. I believe He gave it to me to share with you and the others I have already shared with (Sherry and Amy).

"The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the borkenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delievers him from them all." Psalm 34:17-19

Lilly's Mom and Dad,
I am a friend of Sherry's and I just want to say that I'm devastated for you over the loss of your precious one. I cannot imagine the pain you are in. I pray that God carries you and that He draws you so near that you can almost hear His voice audibly. I'm so, so sorry for all that you are going though.
Love,
Amanda

My heart hurts for you and your family as you mourn such a beautiful life. You will be lifted up in my prayers today, tomorrow and in the days and weeks ahead. May God's peace find and comfort you.

I don't know any of you, but, through a friend of a friend, Amy is on our SS prayer list and now you are too. Oh, how I wish there were words to express our sadness. Please know that we lift you up to the Father and pray that he holds you securely in his hands of grace and peace. In Jesus,
Sharon

Lilly's Momma and Daddy-Family and Friends,
I have just heard through Sherry and I just want to say that my Heart is just broken for all of you. I have been praying since I heard and will continue to lift you up as you go through this time. My prayer is that the God of Peace will CARRY you as you wake, as you sleep, as you cry, in every moment of grief!!
In HIS love,

My prayers are with you and your family during this very difficult time. I am a nurse at Medical City Dallas in the ER and briefly spoke to you both when you came in. I just wanted to tell you that the entire ER is praying for you and that our hearts are broken. This is the hardest part of being a nurse and working in this field. On behalf of everyone in the ER at Medical City we want to sent our deepest sympathy...
" He calms the storm, so that its waves are still." Psalm 107:29

Fran said...

Lilly's mom and dad....
I am praying for you every day and night. My heart is completely broken and I pray like all the others that God will reveal Himself to you in ways you've never known. May His angels on Earth surround you with love and comfort. I do not know you but have got you tucked in my heart.

In Him,
Fran

Kim said...

You are covered in prayer and I pray you feel the arms of Jesus wrapping you in His tender love. May His strength and peace sustain you as you go through this.

Kim said...

You don't know me and it would be very hard to explain how I came upon your blog. Through a chain of people I heard that you had lost your baby. I can not tell you how heavy my heart is for you. In July of 2004 we lost our 4 month old son in a tragic accident. We have been on quite the journey since then. So, when I heard you had lost your daughter I needed to write you a note and let you know that all though you don't know me, I will pray for you. I know it was because of the prayers of people all over the country, people we did not even know, that God gave us the strength to walk through that tradgedy. I encourage you, cling to Jesus! Only He can walk with you through all the agonzing pain of losing your child. I am so very sorry you have to go through this.

Jaclyn said...

I don't know you, but I am heartbroken and praying for your family. Last night I sat with a group of 7 other women in Houston, TX. and prayed for your sweet family. May the Lord comfort you and give you peace.

Erin said...

Lilly's Parents,
I know that you don't know me, but I came across your blog awhile ago, as I'm a friend of a friend of Sherry's and Amy's. I have no words that can possibly bring you comfort during this heartbreaking time, but please know that since I have read of this devastating news, both of you, your family, and your friends are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. May God be with you and bring you through this tragic time.

Julie said...

Jennifer and Richard,
There are obviously no words that can truly have meaning at a time like this. Our team is praying and praying for you and your family and we are here for you. May God comfort you and bring you hope.
Love Julie K and the Care Coach Team.

Shana said...

You are in my heart- and prayers. May God be with you in this difficult time.

You don't know me, but I read about what happened from Amanda's blog. I am so VERY sorry to hear about Lilly's passing.

There is so much I want to say. I have no words to make you understand why this has happened, but I AM praying for God's comfort for you during this time.

Nothing will make sense for a long time, but know God IS with you and He will never leave you. Cry out, scream, yell .. whatever you need to do and then pray and when you can't pray, know that there are MANY people standing in the gap for you.

Take it minute by minute, then move to hour by hour ..don't try to tackle each day all at once.

I know personally what you have experienced and will be praying for you specifically based on what my family went through.

God greatest peace upon you now .. He loves you.

Lisa said...

I am so sorry to hear about Lilly. I am a friend of a friend that is how I found your blog. I have been reading about Baby Lilly, and enjoying her updates. She was so prescious. The last update was on Monday, I hate to ask, but what happened to the sweet baby girl to cause such a sudden death?

jtdunham2000 said...

I am a friend of Amanda Ramsey's and y'all have been on my mind since I heard the news. It breaks my heart. Praying for strength for mommy and daddy.

Hello
We are complete strangers.
I do believe that God brought me to your website to pray for and encourage you. Are there words big enough or comforting enough in a time like this? I am not a blogger gal (yet), but what drew me to your site is a mystery to me, someone had asked for prayers for a Lilly, I went to look as we also have a "Lilli" or Lilliana HOPE" born in November.

My heart aches and breaks for you.
Tears abound. God has put it in my spirit to pray for ya'll. I will not stop praying for you and your little one. Know that God holds all 3 of you in the palm of His hand, despite the fact you are apart.

I will pray for you in the days and year to come. God WILL sustain you with HIS peace and HOPE for each day.
Blessings always!
Jill

Laura said...

No words....praying for you.

anne said...

may God give you comfort and peace. Praying for you guys.

Hillary said...

My heart breaks for you! I can't even begin to imagine! I pray God embraces with you with love and comfort like you've never known before!!

Crista said...

To explain how I stumbled upon your blog would be long and confusing, and though I don't know you, I need to reach out and tell you how much my prayers are with you and your family. My son is just 10 days younger than Lilly, and I can't even begin to imagine the heartache you're going through.

I've sent out a request through my prayer chain here in CT to send thoughts your way. Know that there are many strangers lifting their hearts to the Lord for all of you.

Tina Vega said...

I am so terribly sorry to hear of your loss... my heart breaks for both of you this morning. I believe the Lord led me here as I too can't even explain how I ended up at your site. I pray that you will both feel the Lord's strong presence surrounding you in the minutes, hours, and days ahead.

The Lord will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. Psalm 91:4

Chrys and Mike said...

I have been praying for you all week and will continue to.

"The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."

Tiffany said...

I heard of your terrible loss through your sweet friend Sherry.You do not know me but
I am continuing to pray for you and your family. I pray that God will give you comfort and strength during this difficult time.

Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

My prayer for you and your family is that you will somehow find comfort and let God carry you through this time.

She was a beautiful baby and I can tell by reading your blog that she touched many lives.

God Bless You !

I don't know you personally, but am a friend of a friend. I have a three-month old daughter and have held her a little tighter these past few days.
My hurt breaks for you and your pain that I cannot imagine. I am thinking of you often and grieving with you. I say a little prayer for your sweet baby every time I look at mine.

Jon, Erin, and Talia said...

I am a friend of Joy and I heard about your heartbreaking news. Please know that many people are praying for you, even those you don't know. There are babies too loved by our Heavenly Father to endure the pain and suffering of life on Earth. Lilly is being held in the strong, ever-loving arms of our Savior, protected and warm. We pray that God will give you comfort and peace that surpasses understanding.

LayneCameron said...

Richard and Jennifer,

Mark and I have been constantly lifting you and your family up in prayers. I can't convey how sorry we are you have to go through this.

We trust the Lord will be your comforter in the days ahead.

Marlee Belle said...

Hi! I found your blog through many different clicks! I just found this on The White's blog and thought it was worth sharing. You may have already heard or seen they lyrics but if not, I wanted you guys to. It is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman called With Hope...

This is not at all how
We thought it was supposed to be
We had so many plans for you
We had so many dreams
And now you've gone away
And left us with the memories of your smile
And nothing we can say
And nothing we can do
Can take away the pain
The pain of losing you, but ...

We can cry with hope
We can say goodbye with hope
'Cause we know our goodbye is not the end, oh no
And we can grieve with hope
'Cause we believe with hope
(There's a place by God's grace)
There's a place where we'll see your face again
We'll see your face again

And never have I known
Anything so hard to understand
And never have I questioned more
The wisdom of God's plan
But through the cloud of tears
I see the Father's smile and say well done
And I imagine you
Where you wanted most to be
Seeing all your dreams come true
'Cause now you're home
And now you're free, and ...

We have this hope as an anchor
'Cause we believe that everything
God promised us is true, so ...

We wait with hope
And we ache with hope
We hold on with hope
We let go with hope

I'm Melissa Reed's friend & just wanted to offer my prayers for your family. I am incredibly sorry that you have been dealt this trial. I do NOT know what you are going through, but Christ does. He knows exactly how you are feeeling. I am so sorry for your loss. Your little Lilly is absolutely beautiful & I'm sure brought SO MUCH JOY to MANY during her few short months on earth. I will pray for you to find peace in your life.

I'm friends with the Miles who are the cousins of Sam and Mandy. Melissa posted about your beautiful little angle and it just brought me to tears. Although we don't know you, we have been deeply touched by your situation and will be praying for Heavenly Father to lift you up at this time and comfort you.
