Our sweet Dylan passed away this morning at 1:20 am. I say "our" because everyone that came in contact with Dylan, felt such a connection to and love for him. His incredible spirit changed everyone's hearts for good, including mine. So many emotions fill my body. I am happy for him that he is free from his sick body. That he is free from pain and from the many limitations that he had. I have a deeper sense of love for my whole family. Families are forever. I know this more now than ever! I know that life can be hard. Very, very difficult in fact. But we are never left alone.
After Dylan's spirit left his body, the song "In This Very Room" was going through my head. I mentioned it to Chelsea and she said the same song was in hers too. Here are some of the words.
"In this very room, there's quite enough love for all of us,
And in this very room, there's quite enough joy for all of us.
There's quite enough hope, and quite enough power
To chase away any blue. For Jesus, Lord Jesus,
Is in this very room."
My heart is broken, especially for my wonderful sister, her husband and kids. I know that our Heavenly Father and Savior is mindful of them. I don't think any parent should ever experience what they have, but I know that they will be there by their side. Their pain is deeper than I could ever imagine and I so wish I could take it all away. They have been and are amazing people. I'm so blessed to have them in my life.
Dylan will be missed by so many! He was so special that he didn't need to be here anymore. It is so hard to lose him, especially so young and we will forever be doing it for Dylan!
