Oh Amy, that is the sweetest comment to give to Jessica that you love her. This has been a hard weekend for Jessica & Miranda,& all those that loved Kiley. But to have friends like you means so much to Jessica. She loves you more that words can ever express. Thank-you for putting this on your blogg for the blogging world to read. We should always let those people know that have made a difference in our lives just how much they mean to us. With Kiley passing away just goes to show us we never know what someone else might be gong thru, so we should never miss a chance to let those people know that have a differnce in our lives, it just might make a diffeence in how they see themselves. Thank-you Amy for your love & friendship to Jessica. She loves you so much too.

Amy,

I have heard that before in the past, but you send it to me at such a perfect time. Thank you for the great reminder that the love of Christ is simple enough for a child to understand. I love you! : )

Thank you, Amy. That was very comforting to hear. Such big feelings and faith for such a little guy. What an example he has set. It is so amazing how the Lord speaks through even the voice of a child.
With the loss of my dear friend, Kiley, I have seen even more how big of a God we serve. He gives such peace and strength.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

Thanks Amy! I've been going through some things lately. It was a great reminder to know that God understands.
"Run to Him" - That's all I need to do!
Thanks again!
