The following is from Chris. Continue to be in prayer for the difficult days ahead. Contact information is included at the end of the post in case you would like to send a card.
Because our little boy Zakkerey has passed on we are going to retreat back to Lubbock for a while. We need some time to heal, to think, and to figure out what our next steps are going to be. We are planning to have Zakkerey’s funeral this coming Saturday in Lubbock. (This has not been arranged yet though.) I can’t express enough our heart felt gratitude to all the people who has loved on us during this difficult time, thank you. May GOD’s grace, mercy, and blessings fall generously on each one of you. We love you all.
We will no longer be receiving mail at the hospital. We are no longer there. We will be returning to Lubbock on Wednesday (tomorrow).
One of the hardest days is yet to come. Zackary would have turned two years old Feb. 7. We will not get to celebrate that day with Zackary. If you have children then cherish every moment with them because we thought, I thought, that we would have Zak for many more years. We were unprepared to say goodbye, but we did. I held him in my arms as he passed away and said goodbye. Cherish the time with your children because you may not have it tomorrow, we don’t. Now all we have is memories, and I want my son so bad it hurts. Don’t waste time, love on them. Let them know you love them. This from a father (daddy) who knows the true pain of loss. The stuff and crap of this world isn’t equal to your time. When it’s gone, it’s gone. There is no going back, only memories.
