We'll see you in Heaven, sweet little Gabriel...

Our granddaughter, Esther, gave birth to our little great-grandson, Gabriel on June 6. Sadly, he didn't survive, but we rejoice that he's in the safe arms of his Savior, Jesus! Gabriel had been diagnosed with a heart problem which would have required surgery immediately after birth with follow-up surgery in 6 months. His little heart just stopped beating before he emerged into this new world. I know he's loving his home in Heaven, and we sure would appreciate your prayers for his mommy, grandmom and aunt in Oklahoma who miss him so much. We pray that they will feel God's loving arms around them and that they will eventually feel at peace knowing that Gabriel is safe.

Shalom.
