Another Little Saint...

Earlier today I was devastated to hear the heartbreaking news that Colleen's little boy, Bryce Philip Mitchell, died in his sleep this afternoon.

I am still in shock and, even though I know what it is like to lose a baby, I never seem to have the right words to say...   I just wanted to ask you all to please pray for comfort and healing for Colleen and her family, and to ask their new little saint to intercede on their behalf.

Last summer, my little nephew also died in his sleep.  I know how hard it is on the family, not to mention the unexpected financial burden this places on the parents when they are already dealing with so much suffering...

Elizabeth has set up a Memorial Fund for little Bryce to help defray the costs of the funeral.  Please considering donating!  Be generous if you can, but even little donations can add up fast when we all join together...  Thank you!

"Jesus said to her:  I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, although he be dead, shall live:  And every one that liveth, and believeth in me, shall not die for ever."  ~ John 11:25-26


  1. When Steven Curtis Chapman lost his little girl, he said something, which I found very comforting, "The vast majority of our time together is still ahead of us." May God bless and comfort this family. JMJ

  2. I really like Annita's comment. What sad, sad news. I will pray for that beautiful family.

  3. Praying for that wonderful family and that quote from Annita is so heartfelt and comforting and will be remembered always! Thanks for sharing this one Annita! Blessings! from another mom who lost a little one years ago!
