A Sweet Thing

So baby Wy was walking around his family's house on Sunday morning saying, "Dason, where are you?" He kept repeating it. Finally his mom said, "Wyatt, Jason is in heaven now." And Wy said, "Okay." And stopped calling for him. 
It just gave me a warm feeling when my sister told me what happened. I have always heard that little children are closer to the other side. And I like to think that Wy has seen Jason. And I bet he has.

That's sweet. Boyce still talks about Gram quite often, as if she's right here. It's sort of nice having the reminder of the impression she made on him, even though he's so young.

What a cute story! Kids are so precious and close to the other side. And, I love the drawings in your last post!

That is such a tender experience! I agree, kids are so close to the source.

I think children just have an extra layer of understanding. My good friend just lost her 2 month old due to heart problems. She overheard her 4 year old explaining it to the neighbor friend... "Katelynn lives with Heavenly Father now" So simple, so pure, so sweet!

Hope you are doing well! We'd love for you to meet our little guy sometime! Maybe IF we get some better weather soon we can do a BBQ with Julie and Devon. That would be great!
