We have an angel in the family

Joshua passed away on Wednesday, February 13. He was sleeping and he just slipped peacefully away.

Yesterday, we had the viewing. I was overcome with how many wonderful people came and even more that mentioned to me that they couldn't come, but would have been if other things weren't in the way. His little spirit touched so many lives.

Today is the funeral. Sometimes, I think to myself "I can't believe I am burying my baby." It is just such a surreal thing and something no one ever imagines ever having I do.

I am so grateful for the short time that we had with Joshua. What an amazing experience we had with him. I am so grateful that I will have him to raise in the millennium and that he will be the extra motivation I need to live my life in such a way that I can be with him again.


  1. It was a beautiful service for a beautiful boy! You and Tim are incredible examples to me. And like you said in the funeral today I absolutely felt a special and strong spirit from Joshua the day I met him. I feel so blessed and grateful to have felt the Saviors love and been in the presence of a special little boy. He has touched my life. Love to you, Tim, and Logan.

  2. I wish I could've been there, Stephanie, but I was thinking about you and Tim and your family all day. I'm sure the service was beautiful. I never got to meet Joshua in person, but he has touched my life in so many ways. And I'm so glad you were able to take those sweet pictures of him. Love you guys!

  3. Stephanie, I hope you continue this blog, even though he has passed because you are sure to have many more experiences with and because of him. I love reading the strength and faith your family has and it is truly inspiring.

  4. It was a wonderful day. Joshua's funeral program is now on the mirror in our bathroom. Kyle and I are looking at it every day and remembering to hold our loved ones close. We are here for you in the difficult days, weeks, and months ahead.

  5. Stephanie what you and Tim have had to go through no parents should never have to do.
    You are in our prayers.
