Heart strings to heaven

We will catch you all up on the last week or so very soon, but for now we wanted to share that our sweet baby Oakes is in heaven. He passed away this evening in my arms with his Pappa at his side, and his SLCH family quietly and respectfully lining the halls in the CICU. His passing was peaceful and quick. Greg and I are so very sad, we will miss him every minute of every day, however we both have peace in our hearts that his exhausting fight is over and that Oakes can rest free from his sick little body.

We thank you all for your love and support. Please keep us in your prayers as Greg, Isla and I begin to navigate life without Oakesie physically here with us.

We will share arrangements plans with you once we figure that out.


Much love, and endless heart strings,

Becky

  9. Praying for you and yours. Checking on Oakesie was the first thing I did every morning to see if there was an update and also every evening. Said lots of prayers for everyone and will continue with prayers for your precious family.

  10. May the love of those around you help you through the days ahead. Someone so special will never be forgotten . Our words can't mend the heartache, but your love for Oakesie will be a wonderful comfort and the dear Lord will always be as close as a prayer.
    Love you all, and will continue with prayers to heal.
    Love always , Jeri Schuurman
