|Let the memory of Chloe be with us forever|
"Thinking about you today baby girl! Didn't think it was possible to ache this bad for this long. I miss you SO very much. It takes my breath away to think of your beautiful face, cheerful smile, little hand that was always in mine. You were too perfect for this world. As much as I miss you, I continue to rejoice for you that you are in the arms of our loving Father. I'm doing everything in my power to make you proud, in hopes of one day hearing the words "well done, my good and faithful servant" from our amazing God. Chloe Kristine, I rejoice that I will spend all eternity with you my precious, sweet baby girl, worshiping the King of Kings. I continue on with living out the faith that our best days are yet to come. " I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body I live by faith in the son of God who loved me and gave himself for me. "-Galatians 2:20"
"What a sweet and beautiful little girl!! Alive in Christ and still loved and celebrated here on earth. Chloe's life is impacting so many people through her amazing mom! Stacie's witness is truly a testimony of how God's grace is sufficient when life's tragedies happen. As a mom who also lost a child I can tell you this experience is life shattering and heart crippling. When my husband and I lost our son, Stacie was there to walk beside us. Her ministry through Grief Share was a life line to us in the midst of agonizing pain. We saw through her how joy and sorrow can walk side by side. Thank you Lord that Chloe Brattain lived and that through her legacy lives are being healed!"
"Well today Chloe would be 15! SO hard to believe. One of the people in the GriefShare class I lead said it perfectly- In gets easier but it never gets better~! I miss her so much-she truly was my best friend and the best gift from God I will ever receive here on this earth! I give all the glory to God almighty for allowing me to use the horrific grief I've experienced to help others, through Biblical Counseling and GriefShare classes and counseling. God is always faithful!"
"To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power,
so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Thess 1:11-12"
"Thank you for sharing your heart with us. I cannot begin to imagine your journey through grief and loss. May our Lord enfold you, uphold you and fill you (and your family) with unbelievable grace, comfort, peace and love. We are missionaries in Zambia and in May this year we were catapulted into a similar journey when fellow-missionaries lost their 10 year old daughter after she collapsed and died due to arrythmia of her heart. In the midst of that very dark time it was all we could do but cry out to our merciful God. I am going to share this idea of a tribute/memorial website with this family. May God continue to bring healing to you. Your beautiful Chloe will never, ever be forgotten! P.S. I love the music you chose!"
"This was a wonderful idea Stacie. You are always in my prayers. I can't imagine how your heart feels on a daily basis. She was a beautiful, sweet little girl. Love you bunches!"
"Can't even begin to imagine what you feel day to day...my heart breaks for you. :) Hugs and love."
"Can't imagine the pain you still feel. What a beautiful, sweet little girl. I love that you have done this. God bless!!"
"I just created this sight for Chloe today, November 18,2013, almost 9 years after she left this earth!
Truly I think it's to help me, for all the times I just want to cry out and do cry out to God and many times feel like no one is listening!The pain hasn't gotten easier, I'm confused as to who or why anyone could say it does. The first 5 years I think I was in total denial and since then I have just lived my life one day at a time, one foot in front of the other. Living for one purpose- to glorify the God who gave me Chloe to begin with. There is NEVER an easy day-some days are unbearable, but the best days are tolerable at best. She was my life, my joy, my reason for smiling but the good Lord has shown me how much more I have to be greatful for. That doesn't make the missing her any easier, just makes life do-able! Through my heartache, tears and excruciating pain, day after day I smile and try to live a life that will be pleasing to God and that He may consider me worthy of the call to serve Him. I know that God has to understand the loss of a child because He "willingly" did so with His own son. Unimaginable!!!! So if anyone would like to share any memories or even if you, yourself are missing her please feel free to use this sight to express yourself. God knows all, sees all and is the great comforter and healer! May He give you even a portion of the peace He has given me!"
Have a suggestion for us?
