Remembering Michael Allen Church

Two years ago today my precious nephew, Michael Allen Church, went to be with Jesus! He had two and a half wonderful years with his mommy and the rest of his family and friends! He had many, he was very popular!! He was born on August 30, 2004. I will always remember going to see my sister in the hospital in Dallas after he was born. Then getting to go see him in the NICU. We got to talk to him, pray for him and just be there with them. He was born 2 months early and had some health issues. But God was watching out for him, because when he was about 2 months old home he got to go home and be with my sister. They were able to share those two and a half years together. We enjoyed 3 beautiful Christmas together. He had two amazing birthdays. He was there when my little boy, Zeke was born. They even had matching Valentine's Day shirts in 2007. I will always cherish the memories I have of this precious boy. He always had a peaceful spirit about him. I also want to honor his amazing parents. Sunny Parpart, my sister and Chris Church. They are truly people to be honored. They have taught me so much about unconditional love and how to be a great parent. I only hope that I can be as good of a mother to my children as Sunny is to Michael. Her love for him is beautiful. They have shown me so much courage and perserverence over these past two years. I love them both alot!! Below are some pictures of my nephew! May he look down on us and smile today and everyday! I can't wait to walk and talk with him in heaven one day!

This is him. His grammy is loving on him. She did this often. She loves him so very much!!

This is him and his Poppy! He was also a big fan of Michael. They were pretty close friends!

And this is Michael and his wonderful mommy! I love you both very much!!!!
