Unspeakable Pain, Unanswerable Questions

Beautiful_baby_boyLittle Green Footballs has shown their colors as a wonderful site and community. I  love the readers of that site. Recently, it was discovered that one of their readers and faithful commentators was dealing with potentially losing his newborn baby boy to several unforeseen complications due to immunization. LGF immediately began spreading word asking for prayer for the Johnson family. Thousands upon thousands learned of their situation because of LGF and have been changed because of it. My whole family cried when visiting Chip (the father's site) and reading of the last few moments they shared with their little boy. Painfully and with deepest condolences, I write that Chip and Jennifer Johnson lost their beautiful baby boy, Alexander Locke Johnson on May 11, 2005 at the tender age of 12 weeks old. Alexander's parents have created a site in honor and memory of his precious life. Please extend your sympathy to them in their darkest hours. {And have an entire tissue box in hand as you read their story and view pictures of their son. }

May the God of all comfort and peace be with you. Chip and Jennifer, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this unspeakably painful time.
