My house is quiet. No oxygen concentrator running, no pulse oximeter beeping, no suction machine running. It is very strange to us all not to have Esteven with us and will take some getting use to. Esteven had a sweet spirit and when he looked at you it was like he was looking into your soul.
Esteven went to be with Jesus at 8 pm on January 26, 2010 and we will miss him.
Any memorial funds sent in his name to CornerStone International US or ACCI Canada will be put toward his hospital bill.
Thank you for your continued prayers.
In His embrace
We just had a small ceremony at 2:00 pm. They build these tall concrete structures where you slide the casket into one of the slots, and then you put the headstone on the front. Dwight, Freddy & Luis were sealing the front with blocks and concrete.
There are so many mixed emotions for the doctors, Patti Sue and everyone who has cared for Esteven over the past several months. Above all though...everyone involved is happy that Esteven is now perfectly healthy and with his Father.... Mama Ines and Patti Sue both spoke at the ceremony and painted a beautiful picture of Esteven singing, running and playing like a healthy little child.
I've always loved the visual this verse in Isaiah provides, and I often focus on this in regard to the kids with disabilities whom I love so much...
