It is a difficult week for CHD families

This has been a difficult week for CHD families. I cannot put words to the heartbreak so many of us are feeling as two angels have been given perfect hearts and have been called home to God.

The following words were posted on Ethin's care page, in memory of Ethan and while they may be difficult to read, somehow they bring comfort.

He Only Takes The Best

God watched you as you suffered, and knew you had your share.
He gently closed your weary eyes and took you in his care.

Your memory is our keepsake, with that we will never part.
God has you in his keeping, we have you in our hearts.

Nothing could be more beautiful than the memories we have of you.
To us you were someone special. God must have thought so too.

All our lives we shall miss you, as the years come and go,
but in our hearts you will live forever. Because we love you so.

God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you and whispered "Come with me"

With tearful eyes we watched you suffer and fade away.
Although we loved you dearly, you were not meant to stay.

A golden heart stopped beating, hard- working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best!

Please hold your little ones a little longer today and kiss them one more time.

Much Love to you All~
