Rachel In Her Real Home

Rachel went to meet Jesus this morning at about 2:00am. She lived an unforgettable life in 3 days and 3 1/2 hours. Please be praying for her parents and 6 big brothers and sisters. Thank you.

They had some very sweet memories and she accomplished so much in her time here with us.

I am honored to share that one of the things they had time to do with her are her hand prints and footprints in Crayola Model Magic....yesterday during our visit, we gave them this idea from when we had Jacob. Dave expressed to me today how much that means to them to have that little token.....Jacob's life helped them treasure Rachel's memory in this small way....thanks Little Man.

I'm sorry for their loss, but so glad for the three-plus days they had with her.

I know Jacob is showing her all around heaven now. :)

Wow Karen,

I just read up on your weekend and want you to know I will be praying for Rachel's family and for you too sweetie. What a blessing to be used by God this way and getting to meet her too! How it must have blessed them to have you there, KNOWING that you "get it". I will be remembering them and you too to the Lord in the days ahead. It blesses me to know that she was surrounded by family at home when she went to be with Jesus. God bless you Karen and Jacob for your open hearts. I love you.

Laurie in Ca.

How great is our God...what plans He has for each life, even those that are a bit shorter than we'd selfishly like. Praise Him for Jacob and for how He continues to use Jacob and your family to serve others. We could never imagine the plans He has for us, but as we learn time and time again...they are great, they are awesome, and sometimes simply unimagineable!

I am planning on wearing my Official Fan of Jacob t-shirt today for National Day of Remembrance.

Karen,
I want to thank you for starting this blog for Rachel and myself and our family. I also want to thank all who have prayed and continue to pray for myself and my family.
These are difficult days ,but I KNOW that God has and will continue to use Rachels life for HIS glory and I am sooooooooo privelaged to be used by HIM in such a "wonder"ful way.
Karen...You and your family have been an inspiration to me and I praise God for bringing you into my life...Who knew we would be so blessed to, as you said, have someone who "gets it" right around the corner(kinda).
I love you guys and will be praying that God continues to use you ALL in mighty ways.

In HIS service,
Barb G.
