"Avery went to be with Jesus today. We are heartbroken.
The sixteen months we had with him were beautiful." - John and Audra Notgrass
The only three words that could describe today - Shock. Hysteria. Grief.
The only thing we are certain of - God is near. He is holy. He loves us. Avery is with Him. We will see Avery again.
Please be covering John and Audra with much prayer.
Please be praying for comfort, rest, peace, for God's grace poured out in incredible ways. Please pray they would sense God's nearness while the shock turns into reality, and grief covers every part of their lives. Please also keep Henry (7months old in Audra's womb) in your prayers, for protection and safety; and comfort for all of us who grieve.
"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." ~ Psalm 147:3
"The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart..." ~ Psalm 34:18
"Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them." ~ Psalm 139:16
Thank you for all your prayers.
I can't believe he is gone.
