  2. You know that if we could, we would be at Joshua's memorial. I'll bet there are thousands of people who feel the same way. In addition to praying for you, Matt, and Oceana, we will take time on Wednesday to think about Joshua and the amazing 67+ days he shared with this world. God loves you guys so much - may you lean on His everlasting arms.

  4. Susie,
    What a beautiful video. I want to thank you and your beautiful family for letting all of us share the life of Joshua. How great our God is! The past 67 days has taught me not to take things for granted and to celebrate each and everyday for the Lord. My family's prayers are with your family to have strength and to heal. Crystal in VA

  9. That was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. My prayers continue to go out to your family.
    Will Joshua be cremated and be with your family or will you have a burial service?
    I have definitly gotten to know this young man thru your words and pictures. God has definitly graced you w/his present for the time that you had. Joshua is such a blessing and such a cute little man.
    DUring the time of my father's illness my son got shoved to the side and I regret how he got treated but at the time my father needed the attention and my patience was so shot that I had none left for my one year old at the time. It was so hard but don't think ur a bad mother for having a little less patience with Oceana during this time. I read about that in one of your blogs.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

  33. i am crying my eyes out and i don't even know you. all i keep thinking is how can this be. I am 15 and sometimes it is so hard to understand this. I have been following your blog for months now and when i read that your boy passed....i just couldn't stop crying. i will be praying for your family. I can't imagine how hard this is..but I pray that God will get you through it. Keep trusting in Him. Your little boy was so precious and I can't wait till the day I will meet him face to face.

  41. Thank you Rose for this special tribute to Joshua. I will cherish it for the remainder of my years. I am so grateful for the blogland family who has joined with us and given us the strength to endure through this journey. Matt, Susie & Oceana, I desperately want to be there with you. My heart aches to hold you, cry with you, grieve with you. We are so very proud of every decision you have made in Joshua's behalf...and we believe God is so very proud also. I am certain you will hear "Well done my good and faithful servants" You have not chosen the easy path, and there awaits for you a crown on that glorious day. I can't wait to see it placed upon your heads!!! Precious, precious children of the King. (Susie, please make sure Matthew knows how proud his parents are of him...I don't know how involved he is with the blog, but I want him to know how highly we think of you both)

  44. Your family is such an inspiration of hope to me today. I just ran across your blog from someone else's blog and have been reading about your precious little son.

    Your lives are a true testimony to the hope we have in Jesus.

    I was having a bad day and your lives have encouraged me and caused me to look to Him for my strength and joy.

    Bless you during this heavy time of grief, survival and finding joy amidst the pain.
