"In the Bible it says, '"I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; NO ONE can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one."  

Cade is alive and with you God!  We believe that!  We know that your hand created this beautiful boy--who else could have done something so majestic and perfect and now you are face to face with him!  

Thank you for being the good father over Cade yesterday, today and tomorrow.  We thank you for the years we were able to be with Cade and we long for the infinite years we will be with him in the future!  Just as you are not dead, God, neither is Cade.  

But we do miss him!  

Cade, we don't say "you used to be" or "Cade was" we say "you are" and "Cade is"!!!  You are more alive than you have ever been!  It just sucks that we are so dead down here ha ha ha!!!  

I know the day comes where we join together as one and somehow you, me, your mom, dad, family etc all become ONE.  I long for that day.  But until that day we are honoring your life not death...for you cannot die just as God had promised!  

Let us feel a wink from you today.  Give mommy and daddy a hug.."

"Little Baby Cade!  I lit a candle for you today in your memory which has never passed!  You are as alive today as ever and we are 3 years closer to playing with you in the heavenly places.  You have had a positive impact on all of our lives!  We are all changed for the better because of you!  You are making us better people here on earth!  You are preparing our hearts for heaven as we carry out God's will right here!  Do you see what mommy and daddy are doing?  Do you see what your siblings are doing?  Wow they love you so much!  We all miss you so much!  You must be the most missed kid on earth I think!  But we are three years closer to seeing you face to face again!  We still see you when we close our eyes, but soon we will see you eyes open.  Thank you for forever changing us.  Thank you for forever changing the world.  Living your life you have singlehandedly shifted the atmosphere of earth to bring it closer to heaven!  And you are STILL doing that!  You are amazing!  I can't wait to see you.  Let's just sit somewhere in a grassy area and eat a half dozen chocolate donuts together!  You are pure love!  You created pure love with your life!  I lit a candle as a symbol of the reality that your life, your light, it burns on in our lives and can never be extinguished!  Today we are closer to each other because of who you are!  Today we are nicer, we love more, we care more, we seek to help others more, all because of a little burning light named Cade!  Smooch!!!"

"Hey Cade,
We just want you to know we are thinking of you. You always made us laugh when you came over and were always a very curious boy.
Thank you for the good times. We are missing you always.

"Cade, you would be 5 years old now. I wish that you could be here to celebrate with us. I think of you everyday. I miss it when you would throw your sippie cup at me and tell me to go get you milk in the middle if the night. You are so cute and energetic. Love you buddy.

Why does it feel like you are still alive?  Why do mommy and daddy and all the kids still FEEL like you are around and cannot accept the fact you are gone?  Why?  Because you are not gone, baby Cade!  That's why!  You are dancing in heaven!  You are dining at the table Jesus made for you!  By the way, what are the donuts like there?  Better than Bosa or Krispy Kreme???   Okay...sorry...dumb question!  They are amazing I am sure!  

God I thank you for bringing Cade into all of our lives and I thank you for his presence still there.  Thank you for taking care of your little boy.  I know the love the family feels for Cade is a mere reflection of the ridiculous radical love you have for him.  It must be so amazing for Cade right now we miss him and yet are envious of where he is, God!  Take care of the family as they miss him dearly!  Wipe those tears away in Jesus name and bring joy in its place, God!  You gave Cade a home like you give all of us hope, Jesus!  

Cade, we do not remember you only on your birthday.  Every donut eaten brings remembrance, every laugh heard, every smile, ever day that passes, every are remembered and loved and adored and missed dearly!  

We love you Cade!  And we love you, Brian, Steph and Family!"

"Happy birthday to the most beautiful boy that has ever come into my life. I cannot believe you are turning five today. It would've been a million times better if you were here today, or any day for that matter, but I am content knowing that you are in a better place and watching over me. I love you more than words can explain Cade Asher. Happy 5th birthday baby boy!
I love you to the moon and back, Big Sissy"

"Today marks the two year anniversary of the death of my little angel, Cade Asher. Cade was always smiling, happy and made others happy. I want to follow in his footsteps and do the same. He taught me so many life lessons without me realizing it until he passed away. Cade, you mean the world to me and I miss you more than I can say. I will always carry you and what you've taught me in my heart. I love you to the moon and back! Love always and forever, Big Sissy"

"God you reminded me this morning that it's not about us getting to heaven so much as heaven getting into us.  You say that through the Holy Spirit heaven resides in me!  In me!  In Brian!  In Steph!  In the kids!  And Cade is in heaven meaning Cade is in me!  In us!!!  Thank you, God!  Cade, that's why you feel so alive and fresh in our minds.  It's not some mirage or delusion it's really you!  It's really you, Cade!!!  We miss being around your earthly body, but I am thanking God that you can be with your family 24/7 now.  I know you are in a better place but ironically so are they, Cade.  

And you know all of us are watching over your daddy and mommy and making sure everything is okay with them.  They know they have friends that are more like brothers and sisters than anything else.  You have brought heaven to earth, Cade!  Time flies so fast I know we'll be playing with you soon.  Then we can all eat donuts together, little man!  Little battle spirit!  

In John 12:35 Jesus said "Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness come on you: for he that walks in darkness knows not where he goes."  Cade, I know you are playing with Jesus are part of that amazing light that I see inside of mom, dad and the kids...even myself.  

Today we are sad because we miss seeing your smile, but we have the faith that you see ours.  We have the faith that you are forever in our hearts helping us make decisions even about which donut to eat--chocolate or plain?  Dumb question ha ha ha!!!  Thank you for touching our lives in such a special way and thank you for continuing to touch our lives in that special way.  

God, I thank you for bringing the Perdue's and family into my life.  I also thank you for bringing peace over them during the hard times, when it's just too much.  Jesus you said you are the bringer of peace--the comforter, the counselor.  Would you comfort and counsel my family here today especially?  I thank you so much for all you do in our lives and if we ever seem unappreciative I could only ask that you inspire us to not be so--help us to be more like you, God.  We just want to reflect you daily in our lives.  Not about going to heaven but showing everyone what heaven is here on earth--at work, at school, etc.  And Cade you are part of that heaven we are displaying!  Every time we have the right to be angry at someone and instead are loving we are displaying a little piece of your love, Cade!  That's you, little man!!!  That's you!  Thank you, God for this gift of a boy who has forever changed our lives.

"Cade was not just my brother, but he was my best friend and my whole world. I remember going to wake him up in the mornings with my Dad and we would look around the room saying "Where's Cade?"  When my Dad got close to the crib, Cade would smack his arm and Dad would say "There he is!" Cade would crack up; he had the most adorable laugh. I love you to the moon and back Cade.
Love, Big Sissy"

"Cade man I don't know where to start I miss you like crazy and I wish I could still watch Finding Nemo with you and play cars I'm going to end it here because If I expressed all my feelings for you I probably would start crying I love you lil man"

"I have lots of funny memories...One I was thinking about today was when (on a daily  basis) Cade would rearrange the small table that had individual pictures of all 4 kids from the school year...we always noticed Cade would pull Colby's picture to the front of all the others. At first we would ask, "why are these always out of line?" one day we caught the lil man pulling Colby's forward"

"From Mady Sloan:

I remember when I helped "babysit" Cade and I got to help change his diaper and I got to tell Steph when Cade was crying.  Baby Cade is in heaven which means he is in our hearts.  We miss you so much and we know that you will always be with us."

"No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. My deepest condolences for the loss of your beautiful Cade.  Please know that Cade is now in safe place. Try to rememeber that it is better to have loved him on this earth for just a little while than to never have known him at all. We wish you all peace and love. Peggy and Judy"
