Letters to Oliver

My sweet boy,

I found out today, September 7th, that you are now home in heaven, right where you belong. Your strong heart beat has now stopped, but don't think it went unnoticed.

Do you know you changed my life? Do you know you changed many lives? Do you know because of you people saw God because God used you as an instrument to bring people closer to Him, to bring Him glory?

You were mine for 20 weeks. I was blessed to carry you and love you. I will carry you in my heart and love you endlessly until we meet in heaven. I look forward to that day, my sweet baby. But until then I know Mary, our Mother, will hold you and tell you all about me.

Tomorrow, I get to see you. I can't wait to count your fingers and toes. It is going to be so hard to let you go, even though I know you are gone. Please, know how much I love you! You changed my world, Oliver...my Grace Baby!

Love,

Mommy

Rebecca, Zach, Zoe (my sweet baby God daughter) and little Oliver,
We love you all and are praying for the Holy Spirit to fill you with strength and fortitude like only He can. Christ left His Spirit behind so that you may never feel alone. The road ahead is tough, but not untraveled. I promise you that those who have traveled it before you have found themselves stronger, wiser and closer to God because of it! We are here for you! Thanks, Oliver, for being our grace baby.
With love,
Jenny, Ben and Flint Williams
