Gratitude

Thank you to...

...our parents who have loved us well through this entire journey.

...our friends who have called, written, emailed, texted, and come to Tuscaloosa to comfort us.

...to the Alabama athletic department who has overwhelmed us with encouragement and support and made us feel like family.

...the nurses and respiratory therapists at Children's Hospital who loved Noah along side of us and took great care of him (Special thanks to Sasha, Elizabeth, Kate, Vicki, and Frank in the PICU and to Courtney, Beth, Carri, and Amy on the 5th floor).

...Dr. Percy and Dr Winkler who spoke wisely and compassionately to us as we struggled with tough decisions.

...my friends in blog world who rallied so many to prayer and have shared our story far beyond what we could have imagined (Jodie, Fern, Katie, Heather... the list goes on and on).

...those we know and those we don't who have lifted Noah in prayer and showered us with love.

...our gracious Heavenly Father who has welcomed Noah home and healed every part of him.

This is what I was trying to say before the enter button got pushed by the cat.

We should be thanking you for sharing Noah with us and allowing us to take part in your journey. You have taught us more than a million thank you's can count.

As already mentioned, thank you for sharing your story and faith with so many people you don't even know! We will continue to pray for you over the weeks and months to come.
Norah reminded me today as we prayed for you that Noah is in Heaven with a healthy body! I pray you will continue to find comfort in that promise!

Deb, you and Josh are such an amazing example of faith. Here you are thanking everyone, when in all actuality we should all be thanking you for sharing Noah, your journey and especailly your faith in the Lord above.
You will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

I'm a lurker (friend of Heather Dillard) and have been following your story for months. I am beyond heartbroken for you. Please know you will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. I hope the prayers of the many friends and thousands of strangers who follow you in blogworld somehow brings you some peace during the days, weeks and months ahead.

There are no words to express the feelings of loss, to a parent. I pray that GOD gives you peace and strength in the days to come. Rely on friends and family to comfort you.
