My heart was sadden over the loss of your precious little girl and I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose a child, a part of you, can bring such overwhelming grief but the God of all comfort tells us at 2 Kings 20:5 he hears our prayers, he sees our tears, and he feels our pain. At we can read John 5:28, 29 that you will have your little daughter in your arms once again. May all the sweet memories you have give you calm and peace to help you through the dark moments until God’s promises come true. Again so very sorry for your heartache.

Well first of all I will say I am going to miss this sweet little girl. I have watch Joanna and the other children on occasion since they were born. very sweet well raised children. I started recently working for LEL taking care of Loretta and Joanna some. with my own family and grandson it is hard making enough time. When I first started working for LEL I thought I would do a journal on Joanna and Loretta, but then added them all. So here is some of what I put: Rebecca, sweet and talkative, Malachi sensative, Loretta strong willed and in charge, Jethro, busy, Deborah, adoralbe, then there is Joanna, sweet, sweet sweet, and a mommy's girl. When Joanna might be fussing her Momma would say Joanna, what wrong, and boy did she know her momma voice. Just like on Fri. Dec 27 at 12:01 when Jesus said Joanna time to come home I believe she knew his voice, what a blessing she has been. I was having a bad day on a day I went to Polly's to help with the children, it was my Father and brother's birthday and was thinking of them, they are in Heaven. Being with the children made the day better. Love it when I was able to feed Joanna with her tube feeding. When you would start feeding her she either smelled it or tasted it even thou it was going in her tube and she would get that tounge going, love her food. I will so miss her, but glad she is with the Lord and I will get to see her again someday. Even so come Lord Jesus.
