~Praying it Forward~


March 6, 2016 at 3:33pm

In remembrance of our sweet Jesse… I am remembering and am so very grateful for all of you.  Family, friends, strangers and unknown prayer warriors stood by our sides… prayed for us, loved us, supported us, took care of us, protected us in so many different ways. People say that is gets easier over time but it does not get easier for me… I will always have an empty place in my heart until we met again.

I know that I (we) would not be where we are today without you and ultimately the love and promise of Jesus. He shined through you and your families. I wish there was some way I could repay but any payment would be inadequate because what was done for us was priceless.  So today, we were blessed in Prayer ~ Paying it Forward ~ to you all.  We pray that you too know how much you are loved and appreciated. We pray for you and your families to be blessed with good health, priorities that would honor your individual families and that you also feel the comfort and peace only our Lord can provide in times of suffering and trials.

Thank you for loving Jesse and our family by sharing this special day with us and lighting candles ~ Sharing His Light ~  We love you all! ❤

    Candle lit & prayers to honor the memory of Jesse & for peace in the hearts of Jesse’s family, loved ones & friends. May they have the comfort of knowing he now lives in heaven with his Heavenly Father & Savior, Jesus Christ.
    “For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.” Psalm 62:5-8 (ESV)
    In Christ Alone,
    Stefi Burkhard

    What an honor and a blessing it was to share this special day and time with you and your families as we all lite our candles in honor of Jesse. I lite my candle and thanked God for Jesse and celebrated his life an legacy along with all of you. God’s light shines through Jesse, Ingrid, Scott, and Savannah! Indeed your heart will always have that empty spot. I don’t think it gets easier, I just believe that God gives you the grace to endure and to use your beautiful memories to soften the void (as much as it can be softened).

    Resi, Rascal and I love you, Scott, Jesse and Savannah!
