People have been sending us e-mails, notes of encouragement. It has been a blessing. Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. He endured his pain and suffering differently than others. His behavior was different. He didn't scream and pitch fits,, even in extreme pain. In the middle of great pain Thursday, Nick walked in the door. Silas stopped crying, said, "Hi Daddy", and went back to crying. Don't teach me doctrine, the verse was timely and helped me out! We went yesterday and made all of the arrangements. The viewing is Wednesday, at Heritage Funeral Home, from 6-8pm. The funeral is Thursday, at Fellowship Baptist Church, at 2pm. Graveside services will be following at Heritage Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers we are asking that donations be made to the Silas Blackburn Memorial Fund. It is through Truth Baptist Church, 4015 Maynard Dr., Panama City, Fl 32404. You will need to put Silas Memorial Fund in the memo. If you need any other information, you can e-mail Nick at firstname.lastname@example.org or me at email@example.com Silas was full of life, and we'd rather not have a ton of flowers. We know there will be some, and that is fine with us. We miss Silas, like only someone who's lost a child can know. We are thankful for the prayers and notes of encouragement from everyone.
Boaz loved for us to color with him. And we would every time, just to see his face light up. When we colored he loved to scribble on it, just to tease us. Then he would look at us with that michievous look and smile his gorgeous smile.
Sometimes children say the funniest things. Other times it's soooo typical that you aren't sure weather to laugh, or cry!!!
Stonewall: "I'm gonna go to Walmart and buy an airhorn, then I'm gonna use it to wake up Sister at 6:30!" Then he laughs hysterically!!!
Timothy (7): When I grow up my house is gonna be shaped like an alligator. You'll have to go in the mouth to get in, then slide down and people will scream!"
