Words can't decribe how difficult it is to write this...

(Brendan and Molly)

Please pray for our family. Early this morning, Molly went into labor to deliver our precious new little one. When we got to the hospital, during delivery they could not find the baby's heartbeat, and after delivery of our new baby boy, Henry Blaise Koop, we found that he had passed away. This loss is nearly unbearable for our family, but we also know God's will has been done and continues to be done in our lives. The shock of this will take so long to wear off, we will need to prayers of our family, friends, and the readers of this blog for many months to come.

Henry is now in the arms of our savior in heaven, and we ask for his prayers for us. He is our most precious intercessor!

Holy Mary, please pray for us, you know our pain!

You've been in our prayers all day. Literally, since hearing the news. Oh, I wish I were with you right now to give you hugs and cry with you! We're hurting with you. Please, please let us know if there's anything we can bring over or pick up or do. We'd like to bring over a meal, at least, sometime in the next week or so.

We're so sorry. You were in all of our prayers today and will be for the days and weeks to come. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help or lighten the load.

We'll be praying in a special way during this Advent season that Jesus and his mother Mary will give you comfort and peace.

The trials and tests we must face are sometimes unimagineable, yet so is the strength and grace the Lord can give us. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your families.
