You don't know me but I have been following your journey with Tristan since his birth via the blog. I can't imagine what you are going through right now. Please know that you have people in Alabama praying for you.

Yvette and family,
Holding you close to our hearts!

To donate to the building renovation, do we just mail that to the same address as the church you have listed, or is there a seperate mailing for a designated account?

Sending our love from MI

My prayers and my heart go to you, Tristan and family. I know how it feels being a father of a T18. My son Joshua left us to Jesus Dec. 15th. I thank you for giving Tristan the best possible care and love. You are such great and loving parents. Although difficult and sad times , they are also joyful to know that Tristan is in perfect.
God Bless You

God Bless

Praying for you in the days and weeks ahead. I am praying that you will have much peace and joy amidst your sorrow.

Jenny said...

I know we've never met and probably never will, but I wish desperately I could be there tomorrow to help shower you with the love that I know will be flooding that church. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. I know there is much to celebrate in terms of his precious life. Love, Jenny

Laurie said...

I will be with you in spirit tomorrow, praying for your hearts as you celebrate Tristan's precious life. All of you are in my heart and I am asking the Lord to lift you up moment by moment. Prayers for Tanner and Tayden are gentle in my heart as I know they miss their baby. May your day be blessed tomorrow and love overflow to you straight from the Fathers heart. You are loved.

Thank you for the donation information. I was also wondering about medical bills - I know someone mentioned wanting to help with that (if that is your desire) in a post a few days ago. Is there a fund anywhere to help offset medical expenses your family has incurred while caring for Tristan?

Kenzie Stanfield said...


How I would give anything to be there with you tomorrow! We have been praying constantly for you guys. Please know that we love you and what Trayc said about the boys being together will remain with me forever. I love you!

In Christ's love and comfort,

Mom of 3 said...

We are praying for the family.

I am praying for you and your whole family tonight and will be thinking of you tomorrow. You have demonstrated such tremendous love and strength for all three of your sons. Let that love and strength help you through this difficult time.

Just Me said...

Sending prayers to you and your family. 56 days...with portions of each blessed day chronicled here in this journal. The joy you chose to experience in each treasured moment...may those wonderful memories be blessings to you in the coming days, weeks, months, years...

Thank you for sharing your precious son. In his short life, he blessed more people than many who live much longer.

Take care.
