In the Presence of His Glory

As many of you already know from Esther's FB post, Ava is in the presence of Jesus. We wonder what joyful things she is doing: singing praises with the angels, worshiping her Heavenly Father, dancing and using her pain-free legs, laughing and being free of wires, ports and tubes... perhaps even knowing all sorts of things that remain a mystery to us on this side of heaven.

Despite the comfort of knowing that she is in the best place ever, the sorrow she leaves behind is real and deep. Mike & Esther have so appreciated your partnership in their journey, from near and far, friends and strangers. However, please respect the Lee family's desire and need to grieve privately at this time. Details about the memorial service will be shared according to their desires when it is decided.

At this time, the meal schedule will resume as originally planned, daily meals delivered to the Lee home. Frequency may be adjusted as needed.

Thanks for your continued prayers for the Lee family. While we rejoice that Ava is done battling cancer and is free of disease, the family she leaves behind is beginning a different kind of marathon. Thanks in advance for continuing to pray for them.

Grieving with hope still hurts.
Praying for comfort and peace.
Everyday that goes by you are closer to being with Ava again. Crying and praying.

My heart is broken and I don't have words for the pain you as a parent must be going through. Losing a child to cancer is devastating I know Ava is with our lord pain free it's still an unbearable loss. Mrs Lee it's OK to cry and scream I did it when I lost my brother to cancer at his tender age of 9. May she rest in peace, condolences from the Delgado family
