Good-bye, Sweet Girl

The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. Job 1:21

Our beautiful daughter Maren Elizabeth is now peacefully resting in her Father's arms. We are heartbroken but will be eternally grateful for the three precious days we spent adoring her gorgeous hair, curling her tiny fingers around ours, and stroking what were undoubtedly the softest cheeks in the world. We praise God for the gift of time.

Thank you for your prayers throughout our sweet girl's life. We have felt nothing but love and support, which helped us ensure those three precious days were filled with nothing but love for Maren. We are so thankful for you.


  1. What a peace we have in knowing Jesus! Thank you for sharing your journey. I will continue to pray for you.

  2. Tiffany, Kevin, James, and family, may God continue to surround you with his love during this difficult time. Many prayers to your family.

  3. She is being welcomed into the heavenly gates with music and joy! May God provide you healing and peace until you can see her again.

  4. You have our continued love, support, and prayers, Tiffany and Kevin. Won't Anna, Hattie, Eleanor, Lorna, et al, be overjoyed to welcome Maren Elizabeth into their loving arms in her Heavenly Home?
    Thank you for always keeping us connected through these blogs. I'm sure they were not easy to write, but we grew to love your little one and we grieve with you. God be with you, today and always.

  5. Tiffany, Kevin and James- I am so sorry but am so thankful that you were able to spend 3 blessed days with your beautiful making memories. What a Blessing that your were able to take her home. I know that she is in Gods loving arms now. Love and peace to you all.

  6. I'm so sorry for your loss, Tiffany, Kevin, and James. Words can never do justice, but your church family is here for you. 3 days can in a way be a horrible trick, but at the same time a true blessing. Keep it a thought of blessing.

  7. Oh Kevin I am so sorry for your families loss. My family will carry you in our hearts and prayers. Peace to you as you celebrate and mourn.
