Baby, It's All Right


Grey left his broken body this afternoon shortly after 2. He simply fell asleep on his daddy's chest. There was no place that he liked better.
Run and play Little Man. Heaven is yours. We'll miss you Grey Grey. Thanks for the kisses.

Baby - Dave Matthews
baby it's alright
stop your crying now

nothing is here to stay
everything has to begin and end
like a ship in a bottle won't sail
all we can do is dream that the wind will blow us across the water
a ship in the bottle set sail

baby it's alright
stop your crying now

there was a weakling man
who dreamed he was strong as a hurricane
a ship in a bottle sets sail
he took a deep breath and blew across the world he watched everything crumble
woke up a weakling again

some might tell you there's no hope in hell
just because they feel hopeless
but you don't have to be a thing like that
you be a ship in a bottle set sail

baby it's alright
stop your crying now
it's alright
so stop your crying now
be a ship in a bottle set sail

Oh Nicole --- {{{hugs}}} I just don't know what to say... my heart is breaking for you. But I'm glad that Grey is no longer suffering. Give Seth an extra hug from all of us.

I'm so so sorry.

Nicole, I am so sorry. I wish there were more words to share, to say. I have to believe that God has a plan in all of this, maybe it was to bring this awful disease to the light of more eyes. I don't know.
Your family is in our prayers. Grey has found his peace.
Take care

Heaven is the place to be... I am so very sorry for your loss. Sometimes God's plans seem so wrong. I am praying for your strength. Peace

Dear Nicole and Bill - Little Grey should have had a longer life but he is at peace now in heaven and he knows how much you love him and miss him. He could not have asked for a better mommy and daddy during his short time on earth. I am so very sorry this happened.
I send you my love and sympathy.

This is not at all how
We thought it was supposed to be
We had so many plans for you
We had so many dreams
And now you've gone away
And left us with the memories of your smile
And nothing we can say
And nothing we can do
Can take away the pain
The pain of losing you, but ...

We can cry with hope
We can say goodbye with hope
'Cause we know our goodbye is not the end, oh no
And we can grieve with hope
'Cause we believe with hope
(There's a place by God's grace)
There's a place where we'll see your face again
We'll see your face again

And never have I known
Anything so hard to understand
And never have I questioned more
The wisdom of God's plan
But through the cloud of tears
I see the Father's smile and say well done
And I imagine you
Where you wanted most to be
Seeing all your dreams come true
'Cause now you're home
And now you're free, and ...

We have this hope as an anchor
'Cause we believe that everything
God promised us is true, so ...

So we can cry with hope
And say goodbye with hope

We wait with hope
And we ache with hope
We hold on with hope
We let go with hope
