Sweet Baby

This is the slideshow we made for the memorial visitation in Pelham. Christy Britten was the photographer that took the beautiful photos of Elizabeth Ann. We are so grateful to her for her talent and time.

The songs used are:

In The Garden (sung by Anne Murray) - This is Jeremy's favorite hymn (and my granddad's too).
Who Am I (Casting Crowns) - Just love this song.... and Mark & Melanie Hall
Glory Baby (Watershed) - Sweet song about babies gone too soon
Baby Mine (Dumbo movie) - Just a sweet mom to baby song that I've always loved

Please continue to pray for us as we grieve our loss and as Johnna physically heals. We are so thankful to each person who has visited with us, sent cards/emails/etc., brought food, sent flowers and lifted us up in prayer.

Much love,

Jeremy & Johnna

    Johnna, she would be proud to call you her mommy! You are wonderful!

  2. Hey you two,

    You are yet in my prayers as God continues to draw you nigh unto his loving breast. He can and will provide healing. "Let Him have His way with thee." The slide show was touching. Thank you for sharing your angel.

  9. Dear Johnna,

    I've been following your story since the prayer group was created on Facebook, and I've been crying for you all along the way. I cannot begin to imagine what this time has been like, and my heart is breaking for you and Jeremy. The pictures are incredible, and the video is truly beautiful. I know they will be a great comfort in helping you remember your time with Elizabeth Ann.

    Next month I'll be singing some songs on a concert by a composer named Eric Genuis. One of the songs was written about his baby daughter who died in his arms. You can probably relate to the words of this song...

    Angel In Disguise

    See deep in my eyes
    The window to my soul
    Tears like drops of rain
    And these tears of joy and pain
    Life’s a mystery life’s a wonder
    To behold your suffering child
    In your arms

    When the storm has come
    Let it come we’ll fight together
    When the thunder sounds
    In my arms you’ll be forever
    O that the world could see what my eyes see
    When I look in your heart such beauty
    Look beyond tiny one you will always be my child
    My child

    My little treasure
    My little angel in disguise
    My heart so moved
    To hear your gentle cries
    No words needed such a wonder
    To behold your suffering child
    In your arms

    All the years of dedication
    All the years’ uncertainty
    Can they compare with the joy I live
    When I hold you close to me
    It is I who is rich with your love little one
    Love so pure and unscarred by a world come undone
    Untouched by the cruel intentions of some
    I am so glad you’re in my life
    I’m so glad I’m part of your world
    The world is a much better place thanks to you
    And forever you’re my tiny girl


    You continue to be in my prayers.
