You don't know me but I have been following your tragedy.

I sit here continuing to cry for you and for your loss. My heart absolutely breaks and yet I look at the *story* of her life with you... the two people who loved her the most and the best... she was a very lucky and blessed little girl... as you have been blessed with her.

May God give you the peace that you so need! May he wash away your pain with his and everyone else's tears.

Richard & Jennifer,
I will forever cherish Lilly's photos as she has given new meaning to my "job". I was unaware of the affect those images would have while I was in your home photographing your precious baby girl. Lilly has touched my life in a way no other client could. I have prayed for you every day since I heard the sad news and will continue to do so for a long time. You are in my thoughts and prayers constantly. May God bless you both with peace, comfort, and healing.

Peace like a river,

Richard and Jennifer,
We think of you guys still quite often, praying for you and your family every day. The pictures are absolutely wonderful, she certainly is photogenic. May God give you strength, hope, and peace that one day you will all be reunited! God bless you~ Chris, Lauren and Bradley

I am so so sorry once again. I am praying for you both. She is so beautiful. My heart aches for you and I will continually pray. I am so sorry.

You don't know me. I come from a far off land called New Jersey. There was a link to your blog on a message board. I cannot begin to tell you how broken-hearted I am for you. I'm sorry that you are going through every parents' worst nightmare. It's just not fair, and it's mind boggling.

I have a 7 month old daughter, and Lily's story has made me appreciate her even more than I already did, which I didn't think was even possible.

I so admire your faith and strength. I think about you and pray for you every day. God will get you through this time.

May God bless you and peace be with you.

I found Lilly's video on your sister's website first, but I am so glad to have seen it again.

Your video is forever precious. It made me cry tears of sadness and tears of hope for the days and years to come. Your family is forever in our thoughts.

Love, The Rosens

Caedyn said...

I too am a stranger, a friend of a friend, etc. and I heard about your sweet Lilly. I have no words, only prayers. Your family truly is a testament of faith.


Tara said...

I'm not the New Jersey Tara. I'm another Tara. :-)

I loved seeing such personal and intimate photos of Lilly and so many of her family and friends.

She is/was blessed to have you as her parents...which you will forever be.

It's been said that the death of a loved one changes us...but I know that the life of a loved one changes us equally as much.

I know she changed and continues to change you. Praise God for the touch of this child in your life. I know you will never be the same because of her.

Brian & Debbie said...

I came across your blog on the nest. I remember seeing Lily's beautiful picture, the one of her in the knitted hat. Every time I saw it I thought wow she is a beautiful baby.

I am so sorry for your loss. I can't even begin to imagine the pain your are going through. Even though Lily was here only a short time, she was blessed to have such loving parents and so many family and friends that loved her so much.

I hope your friends, family, and your faith will help you both find peace during such a hartbreaking time.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Jon, Erin, and Talia said...

Absolutely beautiful!

Lisa said...

Jennifer and Richard,

So touching...I can not begin to imagine what you all are going through. This weekend our baby started shaking and after he was ok, I actually thought of you all, and almost just lost it. I hope you all find peace someday with all of this. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Please keep us posted on how you all are doign either by keeping Lilly's Pad as a memory or start another, as you can see many people still check the blog for updates of how you are doing.

In God's love.

Kalyn said...

I TOO am a friend of a friend, of a friend... and just wanted you to remind you that God only gives you as much as you can handle- and he always has a plan. Your family has been in my prayers and hearts since the day I found out about your situation. May the two of you stay strong together- and remeber that you can get through it TOGETHER!!!!!

Renee said...

So Beautiful. God Bless you all.

Scott and Kaye Birdsell said...

You are covered in prayer.

I praise the Lord for your story.

As I sit and think of how I would respond in a situation like your own, I question how I would hold up. Thankfully God doesn't ask us to "tough it out". He wants us to fall into His arms. I picture Him holding you tightly, sweet Mama.

"His power is made perfect in weakness."

Hollie said...

Beautiful! Still praying for you guys!

Jessica said...

You are in our prayers. She is such a beautiful angel.

Thank goodness for the Gospel.

Just think of the song "God be with you till we meet again..."

Wagner Family said...

I know and trust that our God is ALWAYS right, ALWAYS powerful and ALWAYS in control. I am still just heartbroken for your loss and think of your family daily. I am taking you all before His throne everytime I think of you. Know that people you have never even met are praying courage for you, strength for you, healing for you.....

Lilly has changed my life, and I never even had the privilege of meeting her.

Amy said...

Through many tears, I watched the video again this morning. Lilly is so precious. I am praying for you today, that God will give you His comfort in a miraculous way, until you see Lilly again in heaven. We are still weeping with you.

The movie you share of your gorgeous Princess Lily was very touching. She knew she was going to touch all your hearts. She knew and you all knew just how gorgeous and special and precious she truly was and always will be. Her eyes are the most gorgeous and biggest and bluest angel eyes I have ever seen!

Heres a montage Id like to share with you of my own Lily (Lilike)

AmyD said...

I watched the beautiful video today, in honor of your beautiful girl.

Richard and Jennifer you are a testimony of the strength and grace of our Lord Jesus. May God bless you richly and abundantly until the day you are reunited with sweet Lilly.

Jennifer... i was just readying your blog to catch up with people from HS... The story of Lilly was beyond touching.... I have two wonderful little boys that are my world.... I am a full time single father and i can not explain in words what it means to me to be that way... I also know the tradegys that do come.... On November 7 2003 my ex wife and i went to the hospital because something didnt seem right.... Well it wasnt late into the evening she gave birth to a baby boy only the baby was stillborn... I can not begin to explain how it felt... it took my breath away.... I was mad and angry with anyone and everyone... God included... I have sense in the last 6 years come to see it from a different side and I am okay now... While there are always questions and always wondering why we just have to trust in God that there was a reason that he needed these special angels up in heaven... I see that you too are now blessed with Mia... I know i dont have to say this but cherish every moment... We both know how easily and quickly it can change...
