Sweet Baby, Elisabeth Maxine

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

It is with a heavy heart that I share with you that Everly's friend Elisabeth Maxine has joined her in her forever home with Jesus.  You may recall that their family has been a constant support for ours over the past year and Brittney, Elisabeth's aunt, attended Everly's Celebration of Life. 

I know that Elisabeth's one year on this earth was filled with nothing but love from her family and friends alike.  They cherished every moment and savored each kiss and smile Elisabeth shared.  Her brothers doted on her, reading and entertaining her at every turn.  Dad, Mark, was Elisabeth's protector and buddy snuggling and giving out unconditional love.  Mom, Anissa, devoted herself entirely to the care of this precious child of God in every way that a mama can do. 

Now their world has been flipped upside down.  Now those moments will be but memories. 

They will cling to these precious memories in the days ahead, revisit them when the pain subsides.  When the fog dissipates to some visibility, they will look back on their miraculous year with Elisabeth Maxine and revel in her goodness, her perfection, and all that made EM (as we liked to call our girls since they BOTH have the SAME initials) HER. 

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Matthew 5:4
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”

Below is what the Scholes Family posted on Team Elisabeth Maxine's Facebook page:

Our precious and perfect Elisabeth Maxine passed away sweetly tonight (Sunday, April 19, 2015) in Mark's & my arms. We sat on the back deck with our boys in the breeze and trees as our beautiful girl closed her pretty eyes on Earth and opened them to see her Heavenly Father.

The photo is from just yesterday at The Wildflower Center. Surrounded by family and love we celebrated her miraculous, beautiful One Year of life on Earth.

Thank you, Lord for her 373 days with us."

Team Everly, please join my family and I as we lift the Scholes/Albracht family up in prayer in the days, weeks and months ahead.  We know all too well the gamut of emotions they will be going through and support is much needed.
