  1. Prayers from our family to yours. We have never meet but have been praying for you each step of the way. He is in heaven and will be forever you and your husbands angel.

  2. Sawyer,
    Even though I never got the opportunity to meet you, I know you are a true warrior and you fought with everything in you. I know the Lord surrounded you in love and brought you home so you would no longer feel pain. I know that He will be with your parents and surround them in love and let them know that you are ok because you are being held by your heavenly Father. Even though I never got to meet you, I am a better person for being able to follow your life before and after birth. Because of you, I will hold my children a little closer and remember how wonderful you were and how loved you were by your parents and grandparents. Thank you for being such a powerful inspiration in my life. Even though I never met you, I will always love you.

    Josh and Ashlyn, you are in our prayers.

    Love You, Rene’, Bernie, Katelin
    and Will

  3. Josh and Ashlyn, I’m so sorry you lost your precious Sawyer! I know your hearts are broken. So many people prayed for all of you, love you, and want to comfort you. I wouldn’t pretend to know what you are feeling. Just know that you will continue to be in my prayers and I am asking The Lord to give you the peace that only He can give. God bless you.

  4. Even after last night I am at a loss for words. However, words are not what you need. Your friends are there with ears to listen and shoulders to cry on. Ashlyn, you and Josh are remarkable inspirations and I wish to thank you for sharing Sawyer with us. I wish I had known him while he was here. Because of both of you and Sawyer, I will try to lead by example. I thank God everyday for placing you in my life and may He give you the strength you need during this difficult time.

  5. My heart is breaking for Sawyer’s loved ones who weep for the loss. Hold fast to each other and take comfort in the outpouring of prayers lifting you all up. I am inspired by the strong faith of these young parents and know God will keep you in His mighty hand. I pray for strength and comfort during this time.

  6. Our hearts go out to you all at this time. May God give you the peace and strength you need.
