I was going through my email folder earlier, totally bored, and came across where my dad sent me a copy of the 'transcript' from Logans funeral. I thought I would share it here. I read it and just cried and cired. I'm feeling really down tonight and I don't know why. Nothing has happened. But I guess it doesn't have to anymore does it? It can strike whenever.

Anyway, I just thought I'd share with people who understand.
(the reference to Go Rest High on That Mountain is because that is the song that was played at his funeral.


October 20, 2008

(Opening Prayer)


Logan Ray Gill entered and departed this world in Houston, Texas on October 6, 2008 and went immediately into the arms of Jesus. He was preceded in death by his great-grandfather Jessie Smith, great-grandmother, Shirley Bazar, and great-grandfather, Ray Heath.

He is survived by his mother and father, Laura and Mike Gill, and twin sister Ella Ann Gill of Dayton; grandmother, Mooneian Gill of Baytown; grandparents LeAnn and Rodney Bazar of Overton; great-grandmothers Ellis Mae Wade of Baytown and Pansy Heath of New London, great-grandparents R.E. and Jeweline Bazar of Lufkin; aunt and uncle Chrissie and Wade Bazar ,and cousins Ayden and Addie Bazar of Flint.

Letter from Logan’s Grandparents

Our dearest little Logan,

When we learned the news of your passing, we were stunned and our hearts were broken that you will not be here with us. We have struggled with how and why this happened. We do not understand it, but we have assurance in our heart that you are now with Jesus.

You are now our little angel in heaven, walking the streets of gold and enjoying the magnificence of heaven. We look forward to joining you there some day.

Although you never took a breath in this world you have impacted many lives. You are a son, a brother, a cousin, a nephew, a grandson and a great-grandson, and will be missed by all. We are proud to call you our grandson.

Your mother and father love you very much. We pray that God will provide healing and give them peace and understanding in the days ahead.

Your twin sister, Ella , is a beautiful baby girl. As we watch her grow up, we will tell her about you. We promise that you will never be forgotten.

So, go rest our little Logan. Go rest high on that mountain.

“Go Rest High on That Mountain” (song played)

(Don Cunningham’s Message)

I would like to join Mike and Laura in expressing our sincere gratitude for your love, support, and prayers during this time and in the coming months.

On Monday, October 6, 2008, Logan Ray Gill was born. It was his physical birthday, but also his spiritual birthday. On that day, Logan was born again.

Logan was the product of the love of Mike and Laura Gill, as was his twin sister, Ella. All the characteristics of Mike and Laura were within him, as was the Holy Spirit, as it was with Abraham and Moses, because of God’s promise.

We can take comfort in the fact that we will one day reunite with Logan in Heaven. Mike and Laura had an opportunity to share in an intimate way, this little boy. They were able to be with him during the time he was formed and grew. LeAnn commented that, “We didn’t get to know him, but we knew him. We saw his sonogram, heard his heart beat, and held him in our arms.”

Logan will always be remembered. He represents a significant chapter in Mike and Laura’s life. When we get to Heaven, we’ll rejoice and every tear will be dried when we again see Logan. He is resting in the arms of Jesus.

1 Peter 5:7 says, “Casting all your cares on the One who cares for you”. Be comforted in these words.

“Jesus Loves Me”

Jesus loves me!
This I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to Him belong,
They are weak but He is strong.
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes,Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

(Closing Prayer)
b/g twins Logan and Ella
Logan stillborn, loved beyond measure

I'm in tears, that was beautiful.

I really wish I'd been able to have a funeral for Cora. It just wasn't possible. But I've always wished I could have had the closure that would bring.

Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

That was beautiful.

I wonde rif my uncle has a copy of the eulogy he did for Colm.

When they persisted in questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let the person among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." John 8:7
