Please pray for Isabelle's family

This post was supposed to be for Isabelle and her fight for her life while waiting for a heart transplant. Instead it is a post for prayer for her family, sadly she passed away last night. Izzy and her Mom & sister were a huge part of our lives while at the Stollery hospital, they visited, laughed, cried, and shared so many times together with us. My girls Hailey & Sara are so sad they won't have their friend to visit or play with at the beach anymore. Many times when we were gone for supper, Sara & Izzy & Muskaan would be out in the hallway with the nurses, eating their supper together or watching TV. All of them would be laughing, and smiling and being goofy. Izzy was a spunky, silly, fun, and a loveable 6 year old girl. She was sure of what she wanted, and wasn't afraid to tell you! She stole all of our hearts, we miss you already Isabelle and you will be remembered always.

Please pray for Becky & Mady, they will need so much comfort & love right now. Pray that they will find relief in knowing Izzy is not suffering anymore, and hope that they will be with her again one day in Heaven.

"Yes, my soul finds rest in God;
my hope comes from Him...
Trust in Him at all times,
you people; pour out your hearts to Him,
for God is our refuge."

Psalm 62:5, 8 NIV

God knows our pain and sorrow, and he will never leave us. He is there for us in good times and in hard times. Lean on him and he will carry you through anything this life brings your way. His love for us is so great.
