Sweet Kai ...

"At approximately 8:18am this morning, Thursday, October 29th, our gracious Heavenly Father gathered Malachi James Smith into His eternal arms. Malachi is now standing face to face with our Lord and Savior, completely whole, completely healed, and completely PERFECT. There is no greater joy than this."

These words,spoken with such amazing strength and resolve,came from Kai's mother Rachel, this morning.Our hearts are broken and aching for the Smith family and all who love sweet Kai.I know,our family is blessed and better for having known Kai.We have garnered our very own strength and hope by watching Kai's family pass through life's darkest time,still holding fast to their faith and belief in plan and purpose.

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love.” ~Washington Irving

My tears right now do not feel as though they are falling with power...it is my heart breaking for you, for Kai's family, for all those that fought by his side. He is happy, whole and with a loving Heavenly Father, but it is the rest of us that feel alone, scared and heartbroken that suffer the most. I am so sorry you have to see another one go Heather. I truly wish I were there to wrap my arms around you! Love and miss you and so so sorry to hear of Kai's passing. Seems too soon, far too soon! xo

Oh my...I didn't realize that it was so close to his time to go. Such heartbreak!!! I will pray for you as I assume you will need the strength to attend yet another funeral of an Angel taken away too soon.

Heartbreaking news just heartbereaking, Can't come to terms with why the world works the way it does. I pray that his family and loved ones find some comfort and peace knowing that Kai is no longer suffering, that he is at peace and in a better place. I pray for their strength.
