The last pictures we have

Posted by Erin Wilson On Wednesday, February 24, 2010 5 comments

I'm missing our sweet boy lot's today. Looking through photos with the girls today I realized these were the last pictures I have of Josiah. They were taken on January 20th. The day he turned 8 months old and just 4 short days before he passed. This was the second time we had gotten him down on the floor to "workout." It was so much fun to have him on the floor with us. I remember after his "workout" Milo sat with Josiah in his lap on the floor for a couple hours until his behind hurt so much he couldn't stand it any longer. So I traded with him and Josiah and I played on the floor until shift change. I remember that evening when the doctors rounded all being so excited to see us on the floor together. Josiah, Mommy and Daddy all had a great day!

We miss you, Josiah!

    Anonymous I am at such a loss for you guys.Please know that I care and I love all of you. I am so sorry that I can't find myself to be able to speak with you Erin. I feel like a complete moron but anytime I get close to you I become a basket case and freak out. I just don't think that would really be helpful so I keep running. For some reason in my mind if I don't say anything and if I don't send a card or call then all of this hasn't really happened when that is so far from the truth. I really didn't want to post anything on the site but I feel like I am being so stupid by the way I am dealing and processing everything you are going through. My heart is truly broken for you and it is my prayer that the good Lord will show me exactly what you need that I can provide so I will know it is all about His glory and not mine. I am praying. For all of you. I recently read a book by Randy Alcorn that talks about those who have gone ahead of us to Heaven. It talks about how even those in Heaven will be praying because it is an act of worship and just because we are in Heaven doesn't mean we won't worship. So I will continue to pray for Josiah and his worship experience and the strength for him to wait on his family to join him in Heaven one day. Stay strong Wilson family...the Lord will carry you as far as you need Him me. He's been carrying me for years!

    Erin Wilson Please know that the thing I want most right now is for people to talk to me and ask me about Josiah. I love talking about him! It helps so much to know that people care for our family. The support of friends and family gets us through this.

    Ruth Robertson I have followed your story. I heard about Josiah through Andrea and Greg Weaver. My heart sobbed when I heard about Josiah's passing. I am a mother of 4 girls,the youngest being almost 7 months old. I want you and your family to know that you are in my thoughts daily and I pray for you as well. May God continue to bring you peace and comfort during this difficult time.

    Penny Mentch I work at ERBC and my children go to Blue Ridge Middle and to release time... I have followed Josiah's short life through the internet and my daughter. I was so saddened at hearing of his passing. I will keep you all in my prayers. I am so moved at your faith through all of this. You have a precious family.
