Dear Lord, hear our prayer and wrap your loving arms around Wesley’s family and let this prayer comfort them in their time of grief.

We long to be with our dear beloved child, our hearts are heavy with deep sorrow and our breath is shallow. Please carry us, for we are overwhelmed by the pain of our grief. Words can not express the depth of our loss or the heartache we feel. We know you are with our dear beloved son Wesley, your heart is overjoyed by him. His breath is new life in Heaven. Please come and nurture our precious one. Thank you for the hope of eternal life that he has now received. Lord, you will keep him safe until we meet. We entrust him into your care now. Amen.

We are sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry and so heartbroken. I will forever love you Wesley. I will forever cherish the memories of running in our Grandparents yard on Fourth of July, Christmas and holidays. Always eating what our Mommas cooked but running out afterwards so we didn’t have to do dishes! Your wild unruly hair and our red solo cups! I hope grandma is holding you tight ♥️
