You don't know me at all but I wanted to tell you and your husband how sorry I am for your loss. Words cannot define that type of pain. I was actually sending a tribute to my friends daughter who died Mothers Day of complications from a bone marrow transplant. She had leukemia that was in remission, but also a number of other awful things wrong that comprimised her immune system.
Your son is absolutely beautiful. I have three children of my own, my youngest is a boy who is 4. He was born with heart defects and I have spent many hours worrying about him and fearing he will leave me. You never know what will happen in life, but too lose a child has to be the cruelest of pains.
I hope you find a way to move through this and go on. Your baby will live forever in your heart.
All my love and hopes for you and yours.
God’s Lent Child “I’ll lend you for a little while A child of mine,” God said “for you to love the while he lives, And mourn for when he’s dead. It may be six or seven years Or forty two or three. But will you, till I call him back, Take care of him for me?
He’ll bring his charms to gladden you And – (should his stay be brief) – You’ll have his lovely memories As a solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, Since all from earth returns; But there are lessons taught below I want this child to learn. I’ve looked the whole world over In my search for teachers true And from the things that crowd life’s lane I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love? Not think the labor vain? Nor hate me when I come to take This Lent Child back again?”
“I fancied that I heard them say – “Dear Lord, Thy will be done For all the joys Thy Child will bring The risk of grief we’ll run. We will shelter him with tenderness, We’ll love him while we may And for the happiness we’ve known Forever grateful stay.
But should Thy angel call for him, Much sooner than we’ve planned, We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes And try to understand.”

God is with you. / Ella Angel Marty Howser's Mom Read >>
God is with you. / Ella Angel Marty Howser's Mom
God is your great comfort. You were a good mom and God knows that you did what you could. Do not beat your self up with the what if's. God gave you your baby angel Landan because he trusted you to raise him to bring glory to him. Even though his time on this earth was short,there was a purpose for it. It will come to you in the days to come if it has not already. Please know that you are in my thought and prayers. I know that there are no words that will help ease your pain right now and maybe never. God will always give you strength. Trust in him and ask him for it. God never sleeps and is always with you . We as parents do not understand why God calls our children home before us. But we have to trust God because he knows what is best. We are left here on this earth with a hole in our souls that will never heal. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Hold on to your memories of your sweet baby boy. He is always with you in your heart. Close
On the day God took you I thought that I would die I wondered where the time went? I asked alot of whys?? With people all around me I felt alone inside From all their words of comfort, I couldn't seem to hide, I thought I might be dreaming That I'd wake and find you here, I thought "This can't be happening." As I wiped another tear. On the day that you were laid to rest My heart broke yet again, I wondered if the pain would end, But mostly, I wondered when?? It's hard to be without you, At times the days seem long, Sometimes I just sit crying, When there's really nothing wrong. I wish we'd had more time, Before your life was done. I hope your resting peacefully, My precious one

My dearest Lacey & husband,
I found your site through our angel John Burke. My heart goes out as a mother and a christian. KEEP YOUR FAITH & hold it close. Some days will be better than others (as we're discovering) but there will never be a day that passes that you won't think about your precious Landon. After looking at your pictures I see that he looks just like an angel & the pictures you posted were a wonderful reflection of how we will see him when we get to that beautiful place that he beat us to! May our heavenly father come in and put peace in your heart and comfort you through the nights when you feel like you are not going to get any sleep. Continue to pray Lacey... it is what WILL get you through these holidays... and days after. Thinking of you in Alaska and praying for all of us & the salvation of those who haven't received Christ. God bless & keep you all safe. Blessings, Sheila
PS. If there is fishing in heaven then I assure you John was a GREAT fisherman & he will show Landon the way! <3 Close
Hi just wanted to take a min of your time and tell you how your lil boys story touched my heart. I really cant imagine your pain . I was sent to this site to see a friends wife's tribute and was drawn to Landans. I'm sure you are at atotal loss without your lil man . Know that altho your time with him was too short he is now with all the other angels, and , yes, God does have a purpose for him.I can imagine that you are thinking this is just not fair and it isnt. Faith is beleiving that which is unseen. I will kepp you in my heart and prayers.... Close

No words can begin to express my sympathy.. / Kristin Deininger (Daughter of Angel George "Butch" Kaschub )
I was on my father's website, as he passed away three months ago from a quick battle with pancreatic cancer, and something brought me to your site. I read Landan's story and watched the beautiful tribute to him while my 3 year old daughter sat on the couch, watching one of her shows before bedtime. You really made a beautiful memorial to Landan. Anyways, my daughter came into the office to tell me that her show was over and she was ready to go to bed, and with a kleenex filled with tears, I just grabbed her and hugged her. I took her to bed, read her a few books, said prayers, which I included Landan on, and I couldn't stop thinking about you, your family, Landan, and your loss. So I am back, and I feel like I need to say something, but I don't know what. No words can begin to express my sympathy. I am so sorry for your loss. I know that I will be struggling with my own loss this holiday season, and I thought that would be bad, but nothing can prepare a mother for the sudden loss of a child. I am so sorry. It just does not seem fair, but God must have a plan for this little precious, boy. May god be with you during this incredibly difficult time. You are a stranger, but we have been brought together by our two angels, and I will pray for you every chance I get. I want to add two more notes...the first, is that my father was a man who adored children. If you visit his page, you will see that his granddaughters, my daughters, brought a smile to his face in his final hours, even when we couldn't even get him to respond to us. I know heaven is filled with Angels, but I know that my dad is there with Landan, and they are buddies, playing games, and having fun. He will watch over him, I am sure of it...the second thing is THANK YOU. Thank you for sharing your story. What a wonderful way to carry on Landan forever by educating other parents out there. Don't forget to cry often, and please take care of yourself. I can't imagine what you are going through, but I am here for you and I will be thinking about you often. With sincere hugs, and prayers.

I lost my Landon too. / Nicole Hood (Passerby)
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I lost my son Landon on July 27th of this year. He was 5 months and 10 days old. I laid him down for his afternoon nap and found him gone when I went to lay his older sister down for her nap about 30 minutes later. He passed away in his sleep and the outcome was SIDS. There was nothing wrong with my little boy. I am so sorry, I know what your pain is like. Please feel free to email me if you need someone to talk to. Close

My thoughts and prayers are with you / Amy (Angel Mom To Vincent Pesa) (passerby)
Although my son had been ill for awhile we had the highest hopes that he would be fine. I have seen what you have seen though when my sons heart stopped and I can only tell you that in time the good times start to make those awful times fade and even though they never truly go away it does get better. Your son was very handsome I hope that he has become friends with my son up in heaven. My son was 2 and 1/2 and he was the sweetest little boy so I'm sure they became fast friends. My heart goes out to you and you family and if you ever need to talk just write. I know that you are probably tired of hearing that " I know how you feel and that he is in a better place" because no place is better for them then being in their mommy's arms. In a way what people say is true though because our boys are where we strive to be someday. My love and prayers are with you. Close
THINKING OF YOU... / DEBBIE BULGIN (BROUGHT TOGETHER THROUGH OUR PRECIOUS ANGELS. ) TO LANDAN'S FAMILY, I AM SO SORRY FOR YOUR PRECIOUS LOSS AND NO WORDS CAN TAKE AWAY THE AMOUNT OF PAIN YOU HAVE ENDURED DURING THIS LOSS.

I WANT TO SAY AGAIN HOW VERY VERY SORRY I AM AND HOPE THAT YOU CAN FIND SOME SORT OF COMFORT IN KNOWING THAT ONE DAY WE WILL ALL BE REUNITED WITH OUR LOVED ONES.PLEASE BE STRONG AND REMEMBER ALL YOUR GOOD MEMORIES OF LANDON.LIKE I HAD SAID IT IS HARD TO WORD THE RIGHT WORDS CAUSE THERE ARE NO RIGHT WORDS TO EXPRESS IN THOSE SITUATIONS. I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT MY HEART GOES OUT TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND I AM HERE IF YOU NED TO TALK.TAKE CARE AND SMILE FOR BABY LANDON CAUSE LOOKING AT HIS PICTURES HE WAS FULL OF SMILES AND YOU CAN SEE THE LAUGHTER IN HIS BEAUTIFUL BLUE EYES. GOD BLESS AND GOOD NIGHT.Close
I feel your pain..I went through the same as you! / Jania Fugate Read >>
I feel your pain..I went through the same as you! / Jania Fugate I am so so sorry about your beautiful Gorgeous baby boy. I know exactly what you are feeling. I went through the same thing...The whole trauma of seeing your baby losing his life and us as parents feeling helpless...I know. I am here for you. I wish I can just hug you and hold you tight cause your words remind me so much of the time when I heard the doctor pronounce my little girl dead...they still echo in my head. I am sorry. Just know I am here...we are united through the same feeling of losing our babies.
I WOULD LIKE TO SEND THE WHOLE FAMILY MY DEEPEST HEARTFELT SYMPATHY, AND TO THE GRANDPARENTS CAN I JUST SAY I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH,
AS GRANDPARENTS WE GRIEVE FOR OUR GRANDCHILD AND FEEL HEARTACHE THAT WILL NEVER GO AWAY BUT WE ALSO FEEL PAIN FOR OUR CHILDREN, TO WATCH THEM TRY AND DEAL WITH THE DEATH OF THEIR CHILD AND NOT BE ABLE TO COMFORT THEM OR TO MAKE THINGS BETTER FOR THEM (WHICH AS PARENTS WE ARE SOPPOSED TO DO)
I LOST MY ONLY GRANDDAUGHTER ON 1-10-05 AND THE PAIN IS AS RAW TODAY AS IT WAS THEN AND ACTUALLY HER DADDY (MY SON0 HAD MENNINGITIS WHEN HE WAS A BABY AND BY SOME MIRICAL HE MADE IT)
I WISH THERE WAS SOMETHING I COULD SAY TO EASE YOUR PAIN, JUST KNOW THAT YOU ARE HELPING YOUR CHILD JUST BY BEING THERE FOR THEM.
I WILL BE THINKING OF YOU OVER THE CHRISTMAS
AND I WISH LANDAN SUCH SWEET DREAMS UNTILL HIS MUMMY CAN BE WITH HIM AGAIN. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

MY HEARTFELT SYMPATHY / CHERYLCANNON NANNY TO HARLEI JR I'll be there
Daddy please dont look so sad, mummy please dont cry. cause i'm in the arms of Jesus and he sings me lullabies. please, try not to question god, dont think he is unkind. dont think he sent me to you, and then he changed his mind.
You see i am a special child, and im needed up above. im the special gift you gave to him, im a product of your love. I'll always be there with you, and watch the sky at night. just find the brightest gleeming star, thats my halo shining loght.
you'll see me in the morning frost, that mists your window pane. thats me in all the summer showers, dancing in the rain. when you feel a little breeze, from a gentle wind that blows. thats me, i'll be there, planting kisses on your nose. when you see a child thats playing and your heart feels a tug. thats me, i'll be there giving your heart a hug. so daddy please dont look so sad, and mummy please dont cry. I'm in the arms of Jesus, and he sings me lullabies.
I AM SO SORRY TO HEAR OF YOUR LOSS. HE LOOKED LIKE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE BOY HE IS NOW SAFE IN HEAVEN WRAPPED UP IN A BLANKET MADE OF ALL YOUR LOVE AND ROCKED IN THE ARMS OF ANGELS UNTILL YOU CAN JOIN HIM UP ABOVE........
if tomorrow starts without me, and im not there to see, if the sun should rise and find your eyes are filled with tears for me, i wish so much you wouldnt cry the way you did today, while thinking of the many things we didnt get to say, i know how much you love me...as much as i love you, and each time that you think of me, i know youll miss me too, but when tomorrow starts without me i hope you understand, that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand she said my place was ready, in heaven up above, and that id have to leave behind, all those i dearly love, i had so much to live for, so much that i should do, it seemed almost impossible that i was leaving you, i wish i could have said goodbye and kissed and seen you smile, i wish i could have stayed with you, even for a little while, but then i finally realised that this could never be, now emptiness, not memories would take the place of me, but when i walked through heavens gates i felt so much at home and when god looked down and smiled at me from his golden throne, he said "this is for eternity but i will ,promise you, although your life on earth is passed, here life starts anew, i promise no tomorrow but today will always last, and since each days the same up here, theres no longing for the past." god is so forgiving and i am truely free, and i will wait for you to come and share my life with me, so when tomorrow starts without me, dont think we're far apart, for every time you think of me im right here in your heart. xxxxxxxClose
TO ALL PARENTS "I'll lend you, for a little while, a child of mine,"He said "For you to love while he lives and mourn when he is dead. It may be six or seven years, or twenty-two or three, but will you till I call him back, take care of him for me? He'll bring his charms to gladden you and shall his stay be brief, you'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief. I cannot promise he will stay, as all from earth return but there are lessons taught down there that I want this child to learn. I've looked the wide world over in my search for teachers true, and from the throngs that crown life's lanes, I have selected YOU. Now will you give him all your love -not think the labor vain nor hate me when I come to call to take him back again." I fancied that I heard them say "Dear Lord, Thy will be done.
