The family that I shared with you about in November, whose little baby girl had the rare medical condition requiring a bone marrow transplant, suffered the most difficult weekend as their little girl passed away on Holy Saturday. She was just shy of 8 months. What a fighter! What an amazing little sweetie.
Her Caring Bridge website is here: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/quinnseymour. Her condition is called Junctional Epidermolysis Bullosa – Herlitz. Please pray for her parents and their little 3 year son as they grieve. And please pray for all the wonderful medical support staff they’ve had throughout these long hard months up here in the Twin Cities.
Thank you to everyone who was able to bring them meals, and prayed for them. I know it meant so very very much to them during this time.
Life is a gift! And so many facets of life and death are beyond our understanding and comprehension. What a very powerful example of love and faith this family gives all of us. Little angel Quinn is resting happily now and will be ready to joyfully greet them on the other side!
