For Jeremiah, in Memory

The Christmas season is a time when families gather together, and those who are no longer with us are painfully missed. As most of you know, we have just returned from welcoming our first Grandson into the world.

Jeremiah True Harrell was born November 17th with a bright spirit, but too little blood to sustain life. Heroic measures failed, and he passed from his earthly father's arms into his Heavenly Father's arms after just ninety minutes of life.

His parents, Jeremy and Elisha, have asked me to thank you for all your prayers, and I hope you will continue with that. They also request that anyone so inclined will donate blood in Jeremiah's memory. You may save another little one's life.

I sing this song in his honor, and in memory of all those whom we miss during this holiday season and beyond.

That is a beautiful heartfelt tribute to your grandson. I'm so glad you were able to do it for him. I love how you mixed it with one of your best-loved songs.

Could you hear me clapping just now? I thought also of the two of my grandchildren whom I never got to meet, as they didn't make it to the light of day - They're in a clearer, brighter Light now. Thanks for the music.
