Funeral {my glimpse of heaven is gone}

You can read Josh’s words on burying his son here.

 

My Dearest Jaxton,

You had all odds against you and yet you kept fighting. We knew the chance of you surviving was slim but we happily chose to carry you and love you the best that we could for as long as we could. We want you to know you were not a mistake. Your daddy and I prayed to have you and we are so glad we did.

But in the end one single extra chromosome took you away from us.

My heart is so heavy right now as I am missing you so much.  I miss holding your hands, stroking your cheeks, smelling your skin, kissing your nose, forehead, toes and frankly every part of you. I miss whispering into your little ears, reading you books, singing You Are My Sunshine and watching you feed. I miss staring over you just waiting for you to wake up so I could see your beautiful eyes.  I hope you know how much you mean to us! We had someone with you every moment of every day. You were never alone. You were loved every second of every minute!

As daddy and I were obsessing over numbers going up or down and as we celebrating over every small improvement we fell more and more in love with you. But now that you are gone I’m happy to know you are free from the constant beeping of machines, suctioning through the tubes, needles, the smell of hand sanitizer, and the relentless hum of the ventilator. As much as you loved sleeping on your left side and leg massages I’m sure heaven is a better place to be. A place with no omphaloceles, holopracencephaly, Trisomy 18 and no diaper changes which we know you will love!

I now know for certain I was carrying an ANGEL for 9 months. I shared your journey with the world and even before you were born you had an effect on hearts around the world. Literally, we had men and women from almost every state in the U.S. but even as far as: Afghanistan, Hollland, Egypt, Switzerland, Sweden, Costa Rica and South America just to name a few let us know how your life has effected them. I know you are an angel because who could touch so many lives with such a short amount of time. God had a special plan for you. I know that for 14 days I loved and cared for a beautiful Angel. I kissed an angel here on earth. I could have kissed you a thousand more times and it still wouldn’t be enough. As my fingertips felt your heart beating for the last time it all just happened so soon and suddenly my glimpse of heaven was gone.

I ache for you to be back with us and I could have bathed you in all the tears I have cried over you. My heart will never be complete with out you, my son, my angel, my sweetest Jaxton. You are the most special thing that has ever happened to me and I am so proud of you. I couldn’t be any prouder than to know how many peoples lives you brought closer to Jesus and I know that because of your life that number will continue to grow.  I don’t have the words to express how much I’ll miss you, but know that I desperately look forward to seeing you again.

I had the joy and privilege of being your mommy. Thank you for the best 14 days of my life.

We had over 80 people there some of which were his Nurses, Doctors, new friends, strangers and family. We know a lot of you drove hours upon hours to be there. Thank you all for celebrating the life of our son. It means the world to know Jaxton meant something special to you. It was a beautiful day that we were able to celebrate Jaxton’s life. But in true Jaxton fashion it had a twist! As we went to place his casket in the ground the cement vault was 1/3 full of water. I wasn’t about to put my baby in there Moses style and wanted the water out. Because the ground was so wet they needed to put him in a temporary place until the ground dried. So now we get to say good bye twice. It actually made me smile that we’d get to do this again and this wasn’t the last time I’d get to hug his casket.

It’s weird how life moves on even when you don’t want it to. Why isn’t everyone crying? Why is the earth still rotating? Why is the sun still shining? Why? So here I am looking at his last pictures over and over touching the screen just to try to get those moments back. I’m smelling his blankets, hat, arm band and anything that has a trace of his scent. How privileged I am to be able to have those memories with him. How fortunate I am to have been chosen to carry such a special baby.

  2. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints (Psalm 116:15). How precious to God was everything about Jaxton. Thank you for sharing him with us.

    Lisa and Josh,

    I don’t know if you remember me but I was an attendee at The Rising for a short time with fiancé and my daughter.

    I’ve been reading your blog and praying for you since one week before Jaxton’s birth. These last three weeks I have literally sat on the edge if my seat waiting for updates on your son, and my heart broke when Jaxton’s time here on Earth was done.

    Lisa, I am so encouraged by your faith and perseverance through this all. May you and Josh find the strength to push through this, and may your lives find a sense if peace and normalcy in the coming weeks. I continue to pray for you and your beautiful family, and I hope you will continue to be a blessing to others.

    God Bless you and your family, all four of you.

He and you have blessed so many people in your journey. We will continue to pray for God’s comfort, abundant love and blessings on your lives.

    My heart is aching Lisa . . . I thought about and talked about your family all weekend. I am so, so sad and sorry for your loss but couldnt agree more that you carried an angel for nine months. Jaxton truly was. I pray for strength for you in the upcoming days and know you will get through this with your astounding and inspiring faith in our Lord. All my love and support and prayers! xoxo

    I get tears in my eyes when I think of Jaxton with Jesus. Praise the Lord you (and all of us) will be able to see him again. He was so sweet. So cute. I’ve fallen in love with him from so far away. Thanks for sharing Lisa. You absolutely amaze me.

  15. I don’t know you, I’ve never met you, and you live so many states away from me. But my heart is with you, and I have such immense amounts of love and adoration for you, your husband, little boy and Jaxton. Reading your words as they escape off the screen into my heart, makes me really appreciate my own life, and it makes me want everyone else out there to appreciate it too. I hope you don’t mind, but I have shared your story with friends of mine. They really needed to have their eyes opened. I don’t care what religion anyone is or believes in, but you carry true and solid faith and that touches me deeply. Jaxton will always be in my memory, and I wish you the best. I know this might sound strange coming from a complete stranger, but I love you and you are in my heart good sister.

He will carry you… He was so blessed to have you for his mommy and Daddy… Just as I know you feel so blessed to have been chosen as Jaxton’s mommy and dad! Praying!

    My heart aches for you I can not imagine the pain sorrow and emptiness you all are feeling. I will continue to pray for you’re strength. Jaxton inspired so many people through you sharing his story with the world myself included. I know you said you were not strong that you didn’t have a choice but you are when I had my miscarriages I did not get out of bed for a while… you are living loving our Lord and continuing to share your life with us… if that is not strength I do not know what is… Thank you so much for your inspiring faith prayers for your continued strength

    Lisa and Josh,

    Thank you sooo much for sharing Jaxton’s life story. It’s people like you that make a difference in this world. It would have been much easier to give up at a time when you knew something was wrong, but you truly are amazing parent’s and gave it all you had. I can’t imagine the feelings you are experiencing right now, all i can say WOW Jaxton was really lucky to have the most amazing parent’s that God hand picked for him. We can all see how very much he was loved and adored here in his short journey on Earth. Until the day you meet again I pray for peace in your hearts knowing he is truly with his maker and will be waiting for his mommy and daddy with open arms.

    Lisa and Josh,
    Thank you for sharing your sweet little Jaxton with all of us. Thank you for sharing your Faith not only in words but in your Actions as well. So often the waves and storms in life tend to knock down what in it’s path. I am sure at times you feel or have felt like falling over. Instead, you cling to the sure foundation and solid Rock of Jesus. I appreciate your honesty, tenderness and unconditional love. What a blessing you and your story have been to me. Your family is in my prayers. Never stop sharing your faith, you will be so amazed at how God will use it for HIS GLORY! What a day that will be when the Lord returns and all of His children will be with him in His Glorious Kingdom! Patiently waiting with you till that day. In His Loving Kindness, Crystal.

    Lisa and Josh,
    You story has touched my heart in ways you can not even know. Thank you so much for sharing your story and Jaxton’s life! He truly was an Angel and now is is safe in the arms of Jesus. He had the greatest parents ever and they were hand picked by the Lord, who had even greater plans for him then we know. No more pain, no more suffering, no more illness, and no more monitors. One thing is for sure, there is NO shortage on Love for him! Not only from his parents, brother, and family, but from strangers that feel like they know him personally! We will all meet him one day and when that day comes, I am sure that we will all want to hug and kiss him and tell him Thank you for everything. I pray that the Lord is with you and your family in this absolutely heart breaking time. I can’t imagine the pain you are in and I pray that it gets better with time.
    Loved and NEVER forgotten Jaxton!!!

    Your story is amazing and so horribly sad at the same time. You have really touched my heart and it aches for you and your family. Jaxton was an angel on earth – you’re certainly right about that. I pray for your family and your son who is now in Heaven. I wish you the best. Your story is so moving and it’s so brave of you to share it with the world. With love.

    My heart goes out to all of you. It will be three years ago this Oct, we lost our little grandson Jayse, he lived for 7 days, we spent all this time at Riley Hospital and treasure those moments, he was born with a rare gentic disorder of Zellwigers Syndrome.
    Seeing all you have been through, and following your suituation with prayer everyday, I can honestly say, I know what you went through, and it so hard to give them up.
    But know that God heals and is with you during this time and always and that your son is no longer suffering and knew how great your love for him was here on earth and now as a special little angel he knows your love for always.
    God Bless you and your family and I will remember you in my prayers.

    I am in awe of your strength. Jaxton truly is an angel and God had bigger plans for him. The heartache you are experiencing is unlike that of anything God has ever placed on my heart. Our whole family continues to pray for your family’s peace in knowing that Jaxton has went on to bigger and better things in heaven. I am happy to say that I have shed as many tears over this precious child’s life as if he were my own. I am so sorry that Jaxton’s earthly life could not continue for years to come.

    With Love,
    The Marsh Family

  32. Oh my heart aches for you both. I pray for peace in the upcoming days, weeks, months, years. Your son touched far more lives in his 9 months plus 14 days that I have in the 30 years I have been on earth. What a legacy he is leaving here!

    Thank you for sharing him with us. It breaks my heart knowing the his picture was bigger than his little casket.

    “My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,’ says the Lord. Isaiah 55:8-9

    Continue to trust in the Lord and lean on Him when your grief is to much to carry alone. I am so happy to see through your pictures while there is sadness and grief there is smiles and such a love between Jaxton’s parents.

    Lisa, we have never met but I have been praying for you. I found your blog just two weeks ago, when I was 34 weeks pregnant with our son and googled pictures of cantaloupe since that’s the size of the baby at 34 weeks. The picture I clicked on was from your blog. Because I’m pregnant with a boy, because my husband is also a pastor, and most of all because of our shared faith in Jesus, I felt very connected to you and have been praying for you. I am unspeakably sorry for your loss. I’m praying today that God would fill you anew with his Spirit, wrap you in His arms, and give you supernatural strength to keep putting one foot in front of the other as you walk through this season.

    I know this is such a random thing to get a blog post from someone in Washington DC that you’ve never met – and I do not at all mean to intrude on what I am sure is an intensely personal time. I just wanted you to know that there is one more person praying for you and your family.

    Sincerely,

I know, as you know, you will see Jaxton again and you will be his mother and be able to raise him in a place that is so much more beautiful and peaceful than here. Who would have known 11 years ago, when we were just high school kids, you would someday have to face and endure such a trial, such a test of faith. Well you have most certainly passed the test with your unwavering faith and love. Thank you for sharing your’s and Jaxton story. You have taught us all so much. God bless you and your sweet family.

    Your love letter to Jaxton made me cry and smile at the same time. How is that possible? Thank you so much for allowing us out here in cyberspace to be a small part of this journey. Even though we’re separated by time and space, we are one in the Body of Christ and we all hurt when one of His little ones hurts.

    We truly, on this side of heaven, do not know the extent to which the hand of the Lord used little Jaxton’s life…and will continue to do so. Thank you again, Lord, for Jaxton. All of your creation is perfect! Salvation belongs to our God!

Blessed that your both seeing the positive of such a blessing. I can’t say much as I’m very saddened by your loss, no words on this earth could express what I feel for you. Blessings to your family.

    I just googled the name “Jaxton” (which is my 2-year-old’s name) and came across your heartbreaking story. Thank you for being faithful to tell what the Lord has done in this and glorifying His name throughout. Heaven gets sweeter all the time with those He as taken home and although I do not know you, I know you. Jaxton ran his little race very quickly and rests with Jesus. God bless your sweet family.
    In His Grasp,
    Arizona Jaxton’s mom.

    Hi Lisa and Josh, I chanced upon this blog while searching for a picture. I read the posts and cried and cried for your loss. I know this is a year later but I want you to know Jaxton has touched my life. And I don’t know how I would go on if I were in your shoes. Thank you for sharing your pain, your joy, your tears and your laughter. Thank you especially for sharing Jaxton with us. I pray the God will continue to bless you in so many ways you can’t even imagine. And that your little angel will continue to watch over us as we go through everyday of our lives…. Lots of love and prayers from Malaysia. Felicia, Rodney + Aedan
