Memories





This first video was played during the service on tuesday, and the second video was played at the end of the service, as we (the family) said our final goodbyes to Noah. Thank you so much Erin...we will treasure these always.

Desperately missing you, sweet Noah, more than words could ever say...

Those are so beautiful. I can't believe what an adorable peanut he was when he was born. My heart aches for you and the loss your family has suffered.

Thank you SO much for sharing these videos with those of us who know your family through the blog world. I will forever be amazed by the smiles that Noah shared with all.
He is free!

Keeping your family in my prayers,
Julia

If I feel 'cried out' ... Nichole...what must you feel. :( He is so free. So free. The videos are beautiful--the last video how it keeps going from up close smiling picture...to smiling picture...to smiling picture. It really struck me. He really was this ball of sunshine--just granted to you for a time.
Your comment of him being missed more than he knows...one thing that little boy knew FOR SURE is that he was 100% adored. Accepted. Absolutely treasured.

My husband sat down and viewed some of his pictures last night and said "oh Janice--he reminds me so much of Azlan" ;)

XOXO

Have been following for some time, and have always appreciated the pictures...but the video let me hear his giggles...priceless.

Thanx for posting these videos to let those of us who couldn't be there on Tuesday feel like we could honor his memory by watching the videos.

May God comfort you over these days when the incredible loneliness brings long lonely wails from deep within your soul.

These are just precious, beautiful videos of Noah. I cried and smiled as I watched them both over and over again. I loved hearing Noah's sweet laughter, it was music to my ears. My heart still breaks for your devasting loss. I can't imagine how you must be feeling. You are in my thoughts and prayers always.

Sincerely,
Beth

Dear Nichole, Brad, Kailyn and Joshua:

We just returned from our family vacation and I had not had a chance to connect electronically. Of course, one of the first places I checked was your blog. I am deeply saddened to learn of Noah's passing. I have now had a chance to read through your postings, the caring messages from family and friends, the tributes from so many of us who were touched by Noah's joyful smile and your steadfast, loving care.

I feel so blessed to have met Noah and experienced that smile first-hand. He was truly a gift from God. Although Noah spent far too short time and difficult a time with us here, he taught us all many lessons about love, courage, faith and the importance in trusting that God will show us the way.

I can only try to imagine your pain, but I can sense it in your postings. I know that your faith in God is unwavering, and with Him, and with the support of family and friends, you will find strength.

Noah truly has earned his angel wings, and he is watching over you now.

You are all in my most heartfelt prayers tonight.

Alison

What special tributes for such a sweet boy. I don't know your family except through the internet, but I can see how blessed Noah was to have such an amazing sister, brother, and parents. May his life always live on through your love for one another and others.

I know Kent and Dawn quite well and I remember them telling me how your little guy was such a fighter. What an amazing little guy you had...the joy that was on his face was just the most beautiful thing I've seen.

May you feel God's presence with you and your family, and may you know that you are never alone.

I don't know your family. I stumbled across your blog about Noah and in a moment he touched my heart. May you still be comforted by the comforter!
