In the arms of his loving mommy and daddy, Holden Archer Lee returned to live with his Heavenly Father early in the morning on June 4th 2012.
Our hearts are heavy but comforted by the knowledge that we will all live as forever families through the saving grace of Jesus Christ our savior. We are amazed at our friends strength and humbled by their love for each other, their sweet baby and their faith in God. This last week was not an easy one for Conor and I but it broke our hearts to think of our pals/buddies/friends that we love so much having to face something so agonizing. This morning I got up and read this talk by one of our church leaders - it has given me a lot of comfort after experiencing great loss in the past. It is still just as beautiful to me as the first time I read it and it warmed my heart to be reassured that there is a plan and that this courageous little family will one day be reunited and that their sorrow and heart ache will only be for a short time.

I am so honored to have been able to hold such a perfect little child in my arms, even if it was brief, and I know that although the toughest times are still ahead for his parents this little soul is watching over them and preparing a sacred home for them in heaven.
