Home… Healed… in Heaven…
And my heart is breaking for his dear family. This is from Bella Mella’s FaceBook status update:
Our beautiful and precious son, Andrew, went home to be with the Lord today. We loved on him, kissed him, sang and prayed. He was unaware, except by his spirit. The nurse and I bathed his body. I gave him his first bath and wanted to give him his last. Thank you to all who prayed for Andrew and continue to pray for our family. Life is hard. But God is good.
And this is from her friend’s blog earlier tonight:
It is with a heavy heart that I give you this update. I received a text from Melanie a little while ago saying, “Andrew went to heaven today.”
There are no words. Only tears. God has given me an idea about how to honor Andrew’s courage and legacy. I will let you know as it progresses.
For now. No words. Only tears.
Then they sat on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights. No one said a word to him, because they saw how great his suffering was. Job 2:13
Thank you for praying for Andrew. Now we need to surround Melanie, her husband Dan, daughter Audra (20) and brother Avery (15) with our prayers. I don’t know what to say, except “But God…”
Love to you all…
