Though we never met on earth, you are family to us and we love you. Can’t wait to meet you in Heaven. You are experiencing what life was meant to be and will be soon!

Your parents took excellent care of you while you grew in the womb; they already focused on Jesus and read to you Bible stories, prayed with you, and more which Jesus Himself probably has already told you.

Allie and John Lee,

You are amazing.

We are sorry for the temporary loss you have to endure, but Ezra is in Heaven and what’s amazing is he probably knows you better than you knew him. He’s grateful for you taking care of him. He’ll be waiting for you.

Thank you for serving Jesus “even when He didn’t”. You will stand through the fire with Jesus and come out stronger and more pure.

Love you forever

I don’t know you personally, but knew your sister, Amanda, while growing up at Chapman Memorial. I cannot imagine the road you have walked and the pain you are experiencing. My you experience God’s presence in a way you never have before, sustaining you through the days and weeks and months ahead. You are in my heart and prayers.
