God Bless You Josey

Kerry fought and she did everything possible for baby Josey. She was in the hospital for 24 days fighting for Josey to grow while preeclampsia slowly shut her body down. She held on as long as possible.

This is what Josey’s Grandma Janet put on Facebook this morning,

“Little Josey was born tonight at 12:26 a.m., she weighed l lb. 1 oz. God took her to heaven before she was delivered. Thank you for all the prayers sent up for them. I love you all!”

She was a real beauty from what I have been told. I have no doubts that she was absolutely perfect. I look forward to Kerry telling me all about her perfect daughter.

God Bless you teeny tiny Josey. I know that your and Nolan are up there watching down on us. Wrap your arms around Kerry as she starts this difficult journey through grief, it’s a hard and long one. One I wish no one ever had to experience, it just isn’t fair.

Im so sorry Ashley!

Kerry did such a sterling job and I'm sure lasted much longer than her docs were expecting - 1lb 1oz was a great weight in the circumstances, huh? I'm just so very sorry for everyone that Josey didn't make it. That doesn't change the fact that Josey will forever be your family's other special little sweetheart - much wanted and forever loved.

Sending big hugs to you all. Thinking of Josey and Nolan xx

It's such a heart-breaking loss no parent should ever have to go through. I believe all of our children play together in heaven and we will see them again. God bless your family.

Katie said...

*HUGS* I'm so sorry for your family's loss. No one should have to go through that, let alone more than once in a family.

Hi, Ashley. I have never commented before even though I have read your blog for a while.I couldn't stay silent today- I am so sorry for the loss of Josey and your Nolan. Please know that you all are in my prayers and have been there for a while. My Meredith lived for 3 days in Oct,1974. I will never forget her.She was a preemie, too, but not as little as Nolan or Josey.I found BLM blogland about a year or so ago and all of you have helped me so much. I just want to thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings. I was blessed with a son and twin girls after Meredith.God Bless you all.

I am so sorry. I have been praying so hard for your family. I wish things could have turned out differently. I know that Nolan was there to help guide Josey back to Heaven with him. They will be there safe until they can be with you and Kerry again.

I'm so sorry for your family's loss. I said few prayers for Kerry and Josey. It's so heartbreaking to me that this has happened not once but twice in your family. My thoughts are with all of you.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. Josey is in Heaven and feeling no pain now. She is with Nolan and he will keep her safe and close at all times.

Kerry is a strong person I can tell and this loss will be difficult I know, but Josey will be watching over her and she knows she tried her very best.

Hugs to all of you. God Bless

Tracy said...

I'm so sorry Ashley. You, your cousin and the rest of your families remain in my thoughts and prayers.

*tears*

Sweet Kerry is entering the fight of her life, that of daily existance without her baby. I know you will support her every step of the way and she is lucky to have you Ashely...to love her through this incredible pain.

My heart goes out to you too, as you have re-lived Nolan's story and I know that brings back great heart ache.

Josey's Grandmother said it so well "Born Safely into the Arms of Jesus" May GOD wrap his arms around Kerry and her Husband and your family.

Much Love
