Remembering Noah



This video was shown during the visitation at the memorial service for Noah.  It makes me cry every time I watch it.  Special thanks to Buddy Overstreet for putting it together for us.

I prayed Ps 34:18 for you after watching your video.

You don't know me, but I have followed your story with Noah the last few months.

I am so sorry for your great loss. I prayed tonight that the Lord would be near you in your brokenness.

It is obvious from the video that you all packed alot of fun and joy into Noah's year with you, and created memories that will last a lifetime. What a sweet, cute little angel you were blessed with. It will be pure joy when you hold him once again. My prayers are with you until that day. God bless.

I have been so touched by the story of Noah's life. I am a friend of Stephanie Locke's and have followed your story from her blog. I can't even begin to imagine how difficult these days are for you, but I know your faith will lead you both. I will continue to keep your family in my prayers. God Bless sweet little Noah.

I am moved to tears by your story, your strengh and your witness. Your family has been in my thoughts and prayers for many months. I'm so sorry that your time with Noah was cut short-- as seen through your pictures and your writing, you lived every day to the fullest and Noah was blessed to have such wonderful parents.

Hi i'm Olivia from Indonesia.
Maaf tapi saya lebih dapat berkata-kata dalam bahasa Indonesia.
Saya tidak sengaja melihat foto Noah pada blog The Dillard. Saya adik dari salah satu teman The Dillard (Titus, Imelda, & Lucas / The Campbell).
Saya hanya ingin menyampaikan bahwa saya "jatuh cinta" pada Noah. Dia bayi yang sangat lucu.
Saya merasakan kesedihan yang mendalam saat melihat video ini. Mata saya benar-benar banjir air mata. Tapi saya rasa kalian orang tua yang kuat dan penuh rasa syukur. Saya yakin Noah bangga memiliki orang tua seperti kalian.
Saya berusaha untuk selalu mendoakan kalian. Noah pasti berada di tempat yang paling aman dan nyaman selama hidupnya saat ini dan ia pasti akan selalu ada di hati kalian dan saya :)
Semoga kalian sekeluarga selalu dikuatkan dan diberi kesehatan.
Tuhan memberkati kalian.

Hi I'm Olivia from Indonesia.
Sorry but I could more talk in Indonesian. I not deliberate saw Noah's photograph in blog The Dillard. I the brother from one of the friends The Dillard (Titus, Imelda, & Lucas/The Campbell). I only want to delivered that I "fell in love" with" Noah. He the very funny baby. I felt the sadness that was deep when seeing this video. My eyes really the tear flood. But I your feeling strong parents and was full of the feeling thank heavens. I was convinced Noah proud of having parents like you. I tried to always pray for you. Noah must be in the most safe and comfortable place all his life at this time and he definitely always will be in your heart and I:) may you as a family always be strengthened and given by the health. God bless you you.

I've been reading for a long time. Lurking in the background, never quite sure what to say. Now, I'm still not sure what to say but I feel compelled to send my greatest condolences and why I am truly sorry I can say that little Noah knew nothing but love in his too short time here on earth. My prayers are with you.
