Saying Good-Bye to Drake

Drake William Peterson

January 31, 2012 ~ February 3, 2012

Precious Baby Boy. We miss you already.

Glory Baby: By Watermark

Glory baby you slipped away as fast as we could say baby…baby..
You were growing, what happened dear?
You disappeared on us baby…baby..
Heaven will hold you before we do
Heaven will keep you safe until we’re home with you…
Until we’re home with you…

Miss you everyday
Miss you in every way
But we know there’s a
day when we will hold you
We will hold you
You’ll kiss our tears away
When we’re home to stay
Can’t wait for the day when we will see you
We will see you
But baby let sweet Jesus hold you
‘till mom and dad can hold you…
You’ll just have heaven before we do
You’ll just have heaven before we do

Sweet little babies, it’s hard to
understand it ‘cause we’re hurting
We are hurting
But there is healing
And we know we’re stronger people through the growing
And in knowing-
That all things work together for our good
And God works His purposes just like He said He would…
Just like He said He would…

I can’t imagine heaven’s lullabies
and what they must sound like
But I will rest in knowing, heaven is your home
And it’s all you’ll ever know…all you’ll ever know…

Stacy & Jon - There are no words to express the sadness Dave and I are feeling for you at this time. Just know we are praying for you daily. What a blessing it is to know you will see Drake again, and until then, he will watch over you from a place of peace and no pain.

Stacy - there are so many people who are praying for you and your husband as you go through this difficult time. God Bless You both, and I pray that you feel Him by your side and that you experience the peace that passes all understanding. I am so very sorry to hear about baby Drake.
