Gray Man's program for his Celebration

I wanted to post a program from Gray's "Celebration" tomorrow. There are so many people who want to be here with us, but are unable to do so. We are going to try and video some of the graveside service and hopefully post up the video. Kristi and I have something planned that really means a lot to us and will hopefully be a lasting memory to those who will be involved.










As one of the previous posts stated... I have run out of time. Gray Man received 4 packages today!! I wanted to take pictures of his "gifts", but I just don't have the time. Visitation starts soon. Thanks to all who sent packages. Gray got a picture frame from Kristi's high school friend Darlene, that says "My Little Monkey", which we have put a picture of him in and will be sitting our for the visitation. He also received a great card from the Smiths in South Carolina. There's also a little monkey with a birthday hat on from the Burkes in Connecticut. Another monkey came from Katie in Illinois... he came to us from the Encouragement Foundation in Arkansas. His name is Ned and he has quite a hairdo! Aunt Gwen sent some pretty amazing drawings... cough, cough. Just kidding Gwen, the drawings are way better than mine would have been. It seems she has a Mother's Rose bush planned for Kristi when we get home. Thanks to everyone. Wish I had time to write more.

I never thought a family i did not know could touch me as much as you guys have. I admire your strength but more than that--the love for your children. Grayson and Kinsey are adorable children safe in God's arms.

Please know you are in my prayers. Thanks for sharing your story of love and peace.

I found you through Kristy Bolte and I wanted to let you know how sorry I am for this heartbreaking loss you are going through once again. You have my heart and prayers now and in the days ahead. Your Grayson is a beautiful little boy. Asking the Lord to surround you with His love and peace as you walk this journey with two precious children in your hearts. I am so sorry.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

Have been thinking of you all evening; I'm sure Grayson's visitation was filled with family, friends, and love. You'll all be in my prayers tomorrow; I know his service will be beautiful and look forward to hearing about the "special" plans you have! You are truly amazing people!
May God Bless and surround you with his Love during this difficult time

Your program is beautiful. I love the cover photo of Grayson that you chose. I am so sorry for these difficult days & am thinking of your family today.

I have posted a couple of times, and have been following your journey for quite a while now. I have an idea for an online memorial honoring Grayson and Kinsey, but I would like (of course) to have the family's blessing before I did anything with it. If anyone has a chance, please email me, and I'd love to run the idea past you and see if it meets with your approval. You have all my prayers, and most of my thoughts today and tomorrow.

I am praying for all of you and your friends and family through this tough time. I especially pray for this weekend. I pray for peace. I pray for the most beautiful service. I pray for God to wrap his loving arms around you all showing you the grip he has on your two precious babies in heaven. God Bless all of you!

God Speed. That song is so powerful. I am so sorry you have to miss your sweet baby boy. My thoughts are with you. Know you must find so much comfort in eachother during these times. I refrain from saying difficult as I don't thing that is even a fraction of what you must be feeling.
