I can't put into words what I am feeling....just need to let you know I am struggling..........thank you for always being so loving and supportive to any of us when we need it........loving hugs to all.......

Just read this and so sorry. Only child loss that I know was a church friend that lost one of her small sons due to flash flood on her way home from Wednesday night services. My heart goes out to all involved. Praying God will give courage and strength in this time of need. Emmett is comforted now in the arms of God!

We all have times in our lives we need to escape and as a group, we do have in common our embroidery. Think of people that do not have a hobby to turn to. Do any thing to stay busy. it is therapy! Kay

Miss Vicki, I can only imagine the pain and grief of these parents. I don't know exactly how you are feeling; but I have been in the shoes of one who grieves the death of a child from SIDS. She is/was my great niece. The only consolation for me was that God had need of her more than we did and she is now HIS special little Angel. May HE bless and hold the parents in HIS gentle hands as HE holds their child in HIS loving arms. Hugs to you, know you are never alone.

I bawled my eyes out when you put up first post of the loss and crying now. I have been praying for the parents and all effected by this. We don't have the understanding for this. I can say I have been to service of two little ones and to see a young mother want to take baby from casket was too overwhemling. I do believe it was the hardest thing I have ever witnessed. My heart aches for all. Know I have been praying and send you my very deep heartfelt hug with those prayers.

Even though I do not know you, my heart is broken by your words. I have lost 2 cousins in similar situations about 2 years apart, and we still acknowledge their passing over 30 years later. I cannot say it gets easier, the pain is still sharp. They were here briefly and brought joy. We never were able to see them reach their full potential here on earth but are comforted to know that they are with our Father. I have been praying for peace for all involved in this situation and for others who have experienced such a loss. Especially to those who have miscarried. It is a loss too, you probably never were able to hold that precious child and tell them you loved them. To lose someone does leave a hole that only time can begin to fill. Remember those smiles and giggles, those were their gifts to us.

I Just read the poem on Toogie's photos of daughters house. Would those words be a comfort to Emmett's parents at some point? I am teary over both lost children, and I don't know these parents. It has to be the hardest loss there is. When you've worked through this a bit, you will be more able to support these dear parents. Stitch happy thoughts and bright colors, or a project for yourself you've been delaying.
