Sydney Grace Welcomes her Granddaddy to Heaven

Thank you everyone for your continued prayers for our family. Joel's dad passed away today. I would like to share a comment someone made today on facebook that made me feel good.

I can see Sydney taking Jimmie's hand and showing him all over Heaven..."look over here, Grandpa!"

Because of Mr. Fodrie's illness, he only got to meet Sydney Grace one time. Now Sydney Grace has her Nana Kay and her Granddaddy to hold her in heaven.

  6. I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your father-n-law!! Why does it seems like when it rains it pours at difficult times of our lives? What a beautiful thought of Sydney with her grandfather! Continuing to pray for you and your family

  8. Continuing to pray for you all. Thanks so much for the beautiful picture/card we received this week. There are so many things that we just don't understand here on earth. I rejoice in the fact that God has EVERYTHING in His hands and He cares about us. His ways are not always our ways. Rylan tells me about playing ball with Joel. I am so grateful that they get to share some moments. On a brighter note, I became a stem cell donor to my brother this week. He is in Chapel Hill and has cancer but we know that after this transplant,he will bounce back and the miracle is taking place. I am grateful that I was a perfect match for him. We are both recovering. Keep up the positive outlook and know that I think of you so often and pray for encouragement and hugs to bless you each day.

  9. So sorry for all the grief that your family has endured this new year. I can say that I have been there and only to be strong, lean on God! When I lost my baby Heidi at 5 days old, I had been through a similar pregnancy with the "option" of abortion and like you, had her with me for a few precious days. Thank God we didn't abort! But five months later, my best friend from childhood whom I leaned on a great deal, also went on to heaven. I never thought that I would have to be without my friend Misty, but now to know that she is taking care of my Heidi, is a blessing in itself. Take care Lindsay, of yourself and your family. Remember, when it rains, it pours so I am praying for your grief to find peace and mercy in the coming months and years. You are doing great! Just remember, they are together now, watching over you!
