About Amey Fair

I am Amey Fair, wife to Nathan, and home-educating Mom to Benjamin (9), Averic (7), Deacon (4) and Phoebe (2) . Phoebe was diagnosed with a rare childhood malignant brain cancer called Atypical Teratoid Rabdoid Tumor on January 1, 2012. She had complete resection surgery to remove the tumor on January 4th and began chemotherapy using the Dana Farber protocol on January 26th. A few weeks ago I was sleeping in the chair next to Phoebe's bed in the hospital when I heard her little voice drawing me out of sleep. It was 3 am and it took me a minute to shake off the slumber. "Mommy I'm a mean girl" I thought she said. "No Phoebe, you're a nice girl!" I replied. "No Mommy, I'm a MIRACLE!" Phoebe said. "I'm a MIRACLE, I'm a MIRACLE, I'm a MIRACLE!" she continued on. My tears welled up and spilled over as she made her declaration. Phoebe doesn't know the word "miracle" nor the concept, she's only 2. It was as if the Lord was speaking through her like a prophetic utterance. She fell right back to sleep and I sat there awake, lingering in the magical moment. Less than 40 children are diagnosed with Phoebe's type of cancer in the U.S. each year. This is why it's called "ATYPICAL Teratoid Rabdoid Tumor". So, I have titled this blog in honor of Phoebe, our "Atypical Miracle". We are YWAM'ers, serving in missions through Youth With A Mission since 1998. Before returning to the states 1 year ago, we lived near Guadalajara Mexico for 3 years. It was during our year of agricultural missions training in Waco, TX that Phoebe began exhibiting symptoms from the pressure of the tumor on her brain. Weight loss, lethargy, extreme thirst and vomiting were her symptoms. We have been granted sabbatical during this time to focus on Phoebe's intensive chemotherapy treatment and are renting a home in Dallas near the Children's hospital where Phoebe is being treated. Like the woman who touched the hem of Jesus' robe in Luke chapter 8, we cling to Him, knowing that He is Phoebe's healer. If we can just touch Him, be near Him, bring Phoebe to Him each day, we have hope. He is our hope. Thank you for coming along on this journey with our family. It's therapeutic for me to write it all out, and in so doing, I hope God will use it for His glory.

  1. Fair Family,

    My heart breaks with you tonight as you delivered the news you did. I’ve been reading since the beginning and I can’t imagine your pain right now. Phoebe was beautiful as was her spirit, and even though she’s with Jesus, that girl is still going to move mountains. She will always have a place in my heart. Your incredible faith gives me so much hope for life after death. I’m extremely sorry for your loss, but know your entire family was loved by so many.

  2. Words just do not seem adequate. Praying for the strength of The Lord to lift you and console you in your time of sorrow.

  3. Rest in Peace little Phoebe. May god give your brothers and parents the strength to get them through the days ahead. No family should have to go thought this. I will be praying for all of you. God Bless and love you.

  5. Fare thee well precious Phoebe. The vast amount of lives that you touched in your 4 years on this earth is nothing but amazing. Our family is both humbled and honored to have been a witness to your journey.

  6. So significant is her grace – so delicate is her touch that she has brought so much to thousands all over the world. Bless you Phoebe and your gorgeous family, you have taught me more than a lifetime worth of lessons as I have followed. Now it is time for rest for you all. I commit to your gorgeous girl my lifetime of not giving up on your cause – with our friends we travel this road to finding a cure for ATRT and all childhood brain tumours, whether it is here in Australia with our research projects or supporting others on this journey your strength remains here with us.

    Thank you Phoebe for helping me find my way back to the faith that is needed in our world.

  7. Oh YES ~ a nail-painting party, with ice cream and all those in Heaven who also love her and welcome her to new, unfettered life…

    ~and dear God, as Your Word tells us that You sent the Holy Spirit to be our Comforter, may Amey and Nathan and the boys feel the indescribable Shalom of His presence. May this be true, too, of all Phoebe’s kin and we who have followed the eloquent accounts of this amazing journey.

    I shall continue to pray for God’s tenderness and His Grace to touch you in the sweetest ways as you move through this time of grieving, hedged about by the Heavenly Host so the spirit of grief cannot light on any of you. There is work to be done, and you have been prepared for just such a time as this. With love and blessings.

  8. Praying with Dearest Phoebe in heaven. Lord Jesus bless all her loving family with Thy tender care. Thank You for the miracle of Phoebe, and bless her family for sharing her and their faith filled lives with us. They shine Your light into our hearts and sow hope in endless measure. Give us the courage, love, faith, and joy that Phoebe showed us all, so that we are witnesses too. Love, peace to all of you. Amen.

  9. God bless you and your precious family. Our prayers are for you and those wonderful boys. Rest in the arms of our Lord.

  10. I’m so sorry sweetheart. My heart aches for you & your family but oh how blessed they are in heaven to have Miss Phoebe there. I will be praying for peace & comfort for you all. Love & many hugs, Elaine

  11. I’m so sorry. No words can make it better, so I won’t try. Amey, Nathan, Ben, Averic, and Deacon, you are all in my prayers.

  12. Soar high with the angels, Phoebe. God bless us all with you! God be with your family and friends. Rest in peace, sweet angel! You were an angel among us and have impacted so many here on Earth. I know you were greeted by Jesus and all the loved ones in Heaven! I know my sons were right there to meet you…give them a big hug for me! Love you, Phoebe…and I will continue to pray for your amazing family! The brightest star I will see at night will be YOU!

  13. God Bless you and your family. I am lifting you up in prayer. What a precious
    Little girl Gods kingdom has inherited!

  14. I can’t imagine the pain that you’re having to endure with the loss of Phoebe. God gave Phoebe the ultimate healing when He called her home. May you find comfort in the arms of our Heavenly Father. We’ll continue to keep your family in our prayers.

  15. Thank you for sharing your journey in such an intimate and lovely way. I have been touched, encouraged, inspired, and reminded of God’s faithfulness over and over again. Thank you for the privilege of joining the army of prayer warriors. Thank you for sharing your little girl in such an amazing way. Phoebe is beautiful! And that will never change. My prayers continue to be with you all. Much love, Christine

  16. God bless the Fair family. Thank you for being an inspiration to us all and bring us closer to our God. I hope your journey was a little easier by sharing with us all. We will continue to pray. Precious Phoebe now lives in our hearts, too. Love you.

  17. I am a new mom that came upon your family’s story. A new mom that now holds her baby a little tighter every day and tried to soak up all the little things. Thank you for sharing and helping us all see not only Gods love, grace, and plan…but also to help remind us all that life is so very precious and that we should always soak up every little bit. Praying for your family and your heart Amey…before my son I would have thought I could understand, but I would have been very wrong. I know understand…my heart hurts for yours.

  18. Oh sweet little Phoebe.. Rest in peace beautiful girl. You are in the arms of the Angels now. To the Fair family.. The strength you have shown is absolutely beyond anything I could ever imagine. Praying for you all in hope that your strength will carry you through this difficult time.

  19. Her ‘bright, illuminated light’ grew dim, in what is seen here. Tho, not dim.

    Sad alongside you this morning. We have all come to love Phoebe, to love you. We continue.

    Groanings in prayer, for each of you, by name.

    People do not light a lamp and put it under a basket but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.
    In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they can see your good deeds and give honor to your Father in heaven.
    Matthew 5:15-16

  20. No words can make hurt any less. Praying for you. Fly, sweet baby girl, you have touched my heart and the heart of so many others.

  21. I’m so sad with you. Tears are streaming down my cheeks. Feeling your pain acutely, and praying to the only One who can bind up your broken hearts. I’m so, so sorry she is gone. The depth of your pain and sorrow must be suffocating… praying fervently for His peace and comfort and presence with you. All my love.

  22. I can’t imagine how you are feeling. Amy I prayed for a miracle last night for yout little Phoebe. It just don’t seem fair. Faith will help you. After my son away I was so angry. He left us two years ago and it seems like yesterday and an eternity. My precious son Kelly was 20 when he went home. But I don’t believe it was his time. No mother should have to go through this. But we did. So ironic that my son was such a good swimmer and yet he drowned. The only thing that got me out of bed in the morning was his brother and sister and my granddaughter. Lean on them and keep going. You sound do strong. God will help you. Just keep him closer than you ever have before. I wish I could hug you. but I’m sending one through this message from Mandan, North Dakota. You and your family are in my daily prayers. God Bless you. And Phoebe is playing with the angels right now.

  23. And with your final heartbeat
    Kiss the world goodbye
    Then go in peace, and laugh on Glory’s side, and
    Fly to Jesus
    Fly to Jesus
    Fly to Jesus and live!

    aching and weeping and rejoicing that her pain is done.
    praying you onward.

  24. We love you Fair family. Thank you for allowing us to travel with you down this amazing road to Phoebe’s wonderful home coming. Thank you for your love, strength and thoughtfulness during this time. Continuing to pray for you all.

  25. Precious little Phoebe is now with Jesus and is now cancer free. Your postings throughout her journey have touched so many and have brought so many people closer to him. Words cannot express our thanks to you for your diligence in your posts. It has truly been a powerful ministry, and one I will always hold deep in my heart. God bless your entire family. Phoebe honey, You are an Angel!

  26. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Phoebe was an angel on earth and is now an angel at our Fathers’ side.

  27. I am so sorry for all that precious Phoebe has left behind, but I rejoice in knowing that she is celebrating this Sabbath day with Jesus – no pain, no tears, all joy! Looking forward to meeting her there in person one day. May God bless you with comfort and peace until the day we all move home to heaven…

  28. Oh how my heart hurts for you all. This long journey of phoebe has now turned into a great adventure with Jesus. We will be forever changed by her grace and spirit while she was here. Praying for the dear Fair family for the days ahead.

  29. I have been following you guys from nearly the beginning. God bless your family in your time of loss, and bless you for having such a miracle here on earth. Words are sometimes too much, or hard to express. Thank you for allowing myself and others to share with you and your family in prayer and love.

  30. Praying for God’s love, comfort and gentle touch to wrap you all up and draw you close to Him. She has been restored and now lives on forever in your hearts. Bless you on this grief journey…we will be praying as you move forward. (((Hugs)))

  31. Prayers and hugs to your family…as a mom, I just can’t imagine. But what an amazing testimony she was to so many people in her short time here. How wonderful to know that her noggin feels just perfect today.

  32. ❤ My heart aches but rejoices for Pheobe gets to see the face of the Lord… how amazing is that! Phoebe will never be forgotten … so many will remember her light for years to come. My prayers and wishes to give each and every one of you a huge hug are with you.

  33. I am deeply sorry. Phoebe was and will always be my inspiration. A girl that has taught me more in life than anyone.
    I miss her so much.
    My love and my blessings to each one of you. Our love and our blessings. My entire family in Brazil sending their love as they have prayed for Phoebe each and every day.
    No words can make it better, and no words can describe, how much we will miss her. Our precious Phoebe.

  34. There are no words I can offer, only love and prayers for comfort. Thank you for sharing your amazing daughter with us, she’s touched my heart in ways impossible to understand.

    All my love & Blessings,
    Stevie

  35. Amey, my heart breaks for you and the family. May all the sweet memories of Phoebe comfort you. We will always have her in our hearts. Until we meet again…….

  36. I know that no words written could possibly bring comfort but know that Phoebe is in Gods presence and running, playing and pain free with a huge smile. Phoebe and your family have touched so many lives with this journey and your beautiful words and faith; thank you. God has a special place for the Fair Family you all truly walk with the Lord. GOD, please wrap yourself around this wonderful and faithful family.

  37. God has received a precious little angel who has touched our hearts and left a living legacy. We will meet her someday in heaven. Our hearts cry out for you and your family and closest friends AND for all the doctors and nurses who fell in love with her. Although I never heard her voice or her laughter, I feel I can right now. Thank you, Amey and Nathan for sharing her with all of us. May you feel God’s arms surrounding you and holding you now and in the days and months ahead. We pray for your precious sons too. Much love in Christ. The Fagans

  38. What words are there. I am so sad for all of you and what she went through in her young and short life. Glad she had your family with her through all of this and she knew only love.

  39. When it is my turn to go “home” and see my Jesus I look forward to meeting this precious gift, to hug her and dance with her. I will tell her how much her Mommy’s words about her changed me and brought me closer to Jesus.

  40. I have no words of comfort, only tears…joy for Phoebe, sorrow for you. Thank you for sharing as you have. To God be the glory….

  42. Peace be to your family. I’ve only followed Phoebe’s story for a short time. What a beautiful little girl. The only way to get through something like this is knowing you will see her again. There is no understanding, just acceptance that Jesus is Lord of all and is control.

  43. No words can accurately tell the anguish I feel for all of you. I will be lifting the Fair family up in my prayers each time you enter my thoughts. As a mom, and a sibling, I can not imagine how unbearable the reality feels. I pray you find peace knowing what sweet Phoebe is with Jesus and that one day you will be reunited again. So much love is coming your way today and over the weeks ahead as you start to navigate through this new chapter of life. Hugs, prayers, and loving thoughts to you all. Thank you for including us in this journey. Please know we will still be watching for the updates as you come together and face the challenges ahead. Love & support always.

  44. Phoebe, so sorry your gone from the terranial life but you are now in a place where pain is no more, nor suffering. Breaks my heart to know babies like you could have medical issues. Hope a cure for all cancer is found soon. Please give strenght to your family but most of all to your mommy whos heart is broken. Mommy, our Lord will give you the strenght and love you need to move forward for ur family. God bless you all.

  45. The road that all of you have travelled is unfathomable to me. That you have managed to take this voyage with such grace and dignity is clear testimony to the power of your faith and the strength and courage it has afforded you. I am humbled to know you through your writings and believe that reading about Phoebe and all of you has made me a better person and I thank you for that gift. I will continue to pray for all of you.

  46. God bless your family. Thank you for sharing your journey with all of us, I know it was so painful, but it was a huge wake up call for me. In a world such as ours these days, I’m very grateful to see people as selfless and god fearing as you. Maybe one day I will grow to be more like you. You are all in my prayers for peace and love.

  47. As a child, my favorite church benidiction is something we want to share with you today “May The Lord Bless You, May The Lord keep you. May the Almighty show you his way. Granting you peace and granting you courage. Grace for the living of each new day. Our prayers are with your family. In His Service, The Carnes Family

  48. I am truly heart-broken for your family but rejoicing in the news that Phoebe’s pain and suffering have passed. May her sweet spirit be forever present in your hearts and minds all the days of your lives. May you never lose that sense of wonder and delight that is your sweet Phoebe. I lift you all up in prayer that you be surrounded with whomever and whatever you need to continue on and to be glad in each day, even if you stumble and start to question it all. There will be days, but know that you have all done well in caring for and loving Phoebe and letting her go home to whence she began. Thank you for sharing your angel and opening your hearts to all.

  49. What a blessing you are. I can’t wait to meet you in heaven. Prayers for the family still here in our temporary home. Love you all.

  50. Christ Jesus, most merciful Saviour,
    Hear our prayers as we gather in Your name
    We commend this child into Your arms of mercy.
    Phoebe has been a blessing to all who knew her.

    She brought laughter, love and joy to all
    And in the moments when we faltered
    Phoebe provided a perfect message of hope and promise,
    that she indeed was a miracle, and that God is not a meanie

    Father, grant comfort and strength to those who grieve for her
    Embrace them with Your eternal love, her family, her loved ones,
    and the many, many from around the world who never knew this bright spark
    but were touched by her all the same

    Thank you for the love we would never have known,
    but for Phoebe’s brief days with us.
    Thank you for the joy she brought to so many people by simply being Phoebe
    May the angels surround Phoebe and the saints welcome her with joy.

    And Father, I ask now that you bring a special comfort to Amey, Nathan,
    Benjamin, Averic and Deacon, who were the world to Phoebe, just as she was the world to them. Surround them with Your love as they cling to Your promise that they will be reunited once more in Heaven.

    Lord God, we commend this child to Your everlasting care.

    In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen

  51. My heart breaks for your family! It seems so much more real when your precious angel has the same name as my own precious little girl! I am so deeply sorry for your loss! I rejoice with you in the knowledge that Phoebe is now with her heavenly daddy and is healed and whole and will never again feel pain or sorrow. I also deeply mourn the loss of her physical presence from your lives! I am asking Daddy God to wrap you all in his arms and carry you through until the day when you are reuinted with precious Phoebe again in heaven! I pray for an outpouring of supernatural comfort and strength over your family! Tons of love and hugs to all of you!

  52. I’m so sorry. Phoebe is no longer suffering. I have learned so much from all of you through this journey. You are one incredible family and Phoebe was such a lucky little girl to have all of you in her short life. Thank you for bringing me closer to God through this journey. My thoughts and prayers are with each one of you. May God bless the Fair family and hold you all close!

  53. Last night at around 10pm I was sitting on my porch and felt compelled to pray for you all. Pleading to God on your behalf, standing with you as a fellow mother, that God would heal your sweet girl, believing that He could. And if he chose not to, asking that God would carry you. Even though I only know you through your stories shared on this blog, the Holy Spirit has kept you and Phoebe firmly on my heart. I wondered through tears last night how on earth you could go on, take another step should your sweet girl be taken home to heaven.

    And then this morning, the news that God has taken her home. And the song in my head that immediately began playing —- “Because he lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives all fear is gone” We just so happened to sing this song at my church’s service today as well. God’s gentle reminder to me, that he will carry you, that he will help you in your despair, your grief, your unbelief in the days ahead.

    From our family to you, Fair family, we hold you in prayer. Thankful that you know Jesus. Thankful that precious Phoebe did too so that now that beautiful smile and bright blue eyes can gaze upon and worship Him forever.

    Melissa Weseloh, St. Louis MO

  54. I’m all over the place today emotionally, so glad that Phoebe’s pain is over and she has been healed and will never be sad again. At the same time, I’m so sorry you have to face life without her sweet heart for awhile. But more than all that, I’m rejoicing that we have a loving God who indeed is not a meanie (according to a wise and precious philosopher girl). I am so grateful to Amey and Nathan for letting us watch and learn from your family how to live life as God’s people. I will never forget you. Love, Suzy

  55. As I sit here and cry, I don’t even know what to say. You have been on such a journey. She is in a better place but will be missed here on earth. I pray that your family has comfort during this difficult time.

  56. I can’t begin to say things in any way better than all these beautiful, loving tributes. Thank you and angel Phoebe for sharing with us and for helping so many grow closer to our God.

  57. May our Lord be ever present with His all sufficient peace. Prayed for your sweet girl through this and will continue to pray for you guys. It was a blessing to know Phoebe! Will never forget that smile!

  58. Your bright, illuminated light is shining with Jesus. I am praying for your family as you grieve the loss if her light in your lives. May the love of God and his people buoy you through the waves of grief.

  59. Phoebe is now in Heaven with God and is no longer suffering. I am praying for your family and for God’s comfort for you. Thank you for sharing Phoebe and your love of God with us.

  60. Praying for your family! Phoebe taught so many of us that “God is not a meanie!” Amey, As a mother myself I just want to wrap my arms around you! Your faith in God has inspired me to be a better mother and wife. My heart is broken for all of you.

  61. What is left to say that all her praying friends and family have not said?

    My heart aches for your empty arms, and thrills at her presence with her Lord.

    I look more forward to heaven each day and Phoebe is now another reason why.

    No more sorrow or pain for that “miracle” of a child and you can rest in knowing that she is safe in her loving Father’s arms.

    I am so sorry for the loss to your family.

    Still praying in Jacksonville,

    • There is only agreement with all the beautiful comments before mine. My prayers of thankfulness will always be with the Fair Family in mind. Phoebe’s journey and the Faithful way her precious family travelled her journey with her, has renewed my Faith and inspired me to depend upon our Lord – no matter what. I know, through Faith, you will be comforted during this difficult transition. With my Love to All of you!

  62. I just found you today – an online friend asked me to pray for you – she told us who read her blog that Phoebe had gone Home. I clicked the link thinking I was ready to see your faces and pray. I was not. Oh – the praying part is going fine – the ready part? Not so much. Her face and little painted finger nails took my breath away. When I thought I was going to catch my breath, your writing and journey proved me wrong. As I ache for you – I also see your incredible faith – her faith. You invited us in to the beautiful private places and made us feel at home with your joys and sorrows. You shared your little girl. I am both blessed and grateful. I am praying for you. I will come back to look at her and pray for you. Because her journey has now begun anew in the Kingdom of Heaven – your’s is still here – with those of us who care but who will never be the kind of enough Phoebe was and will always be for you. When someone goes to Heaven we tend to say she was. . .but the truth is that Phoebe IS. She is your daughter, sister, and friend. She is with God. She is healed. She loves you. She is. You are. And because she is and you are, her story can live on in the lives the many she touched – even a stranger who came late. . .but not too late to receive the message that was and is Phoebe.

  63. I have been following your sweet Phoebe and your families story for a while now. Since then I have told many about Phoebe’s Journey! As I write this there is a knot in my throat! My heart aches for you all. In the short time that Phoebe was on this earth she has left quite a legacy. Such an inspiration for us all. With all that she endured she kept a smile and a positive attitude that left a mark on everyone that was lucky enough to meet her. I know that you will continue telling her story.

  64. Continuing to lift your family up in prayer. I am so sorry for your loss and am praying God’s peace, comfort, and strength over you all.

  65. Heartbroken with you all. The prayers will continue for your family from ours. Thank you for opening up your lives to so many of us, and sharing Phoebe with us all. I think of her often and feel so much a part of her journey, of the Fair family journey, even though we’ve never met. Press in, look up and know your family is being held up by so many prayers, and the solid rock that is Christ!
    Crying with you & praying for you in Idaho,
    Nicole Becker

  66. So sorry for the loss of your precious little girl. I can’t begin to imagine your pain. Rolf and I are praying for you to know God’s comfort, strength, and grace. Hugs.

  67. I was just introduced to this Blog via a facebook post. An unimaginable loss to your family that you shared so graciously. May your sweet girl fly with the angels and may God hold all of you who love her in his righteous right hand. Isiah 41:10.

  68. My heart is broken and yet I know that she was truly a miracle and that she is where she will no longer have to feel pain.She is in Heaven living the kind of life she deserved, knowing one day you will all be together again. God Bless you all and I pray that God give you peace and comfort knowing she is now with Jesus, and that she will be with you always as an angel watching over all of you. Shetruly was a miracle. Love you Phoebe

  69. Amey, I was doing my Bible study & this scripture was on the 1st page & I believe God wants me to pass it on to you. In Luke 7:13 it says….When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and He said, “Don’t cry.” Amey, let Jesus’ words wash all over you. Lean on Him to take away all your pain. He has Phoebe by one hand & is holding out the other to you. Praise God that one day you will be reunited. You are so blessed to be Phoebe’s mom. She touched so many of us & I can’t wait to meet her face to face one day too. I love you & your family & pray for God to surround you all with His comfort & peace.

  70. I too have been be touched by the faith and love your family has shared with all of us. My heart breaks for you. Since I found this blog I have prayed and thought of you often, even though I have never met you. But I know one day when we all go to heaven I will get to meet this precious angel that God allowed us to share for a short while. Please continue the work that God has chosen for you and your family. You have a great talent for sharing God’s love and grace please don’t stop now. God has Phoebe now and she is playing on those streets of gold. Just rest in the peace that only God can give.

  71. Heartbroken for you all…so many questions for the Lord. Sweet Phoebe has glorified Him greatly and so have you all with your testimony. Continuing prayers for you, dear family.

  72. Nathan and Amey, I am so very sorry for you and your boys. You guys all fought the good fight. I am crying for you tonight.

  73. Weeping with you. I’m so sorry for your pain yet so thankful that Phoebe is now in a place where there is no more pain or sorrow. Praise Him for our hope! My heart aches with you now as you are missing your precious little Phoebe. May you feel His arms wrapped tightly around you as you grieve together. Know that there are so many praying for you and weeping with you.

  74. I read your post last night – I was not ready…as I am sure you were not ready. How can you ever prepare for such a night as that. While we know precious Phoebe is in a better place, her heavenly father is holding her hand, walking through the streets of heaven. The peace we have is that she will not suffer or have any twinges of pain anymore. Phoebe story brought me closer to God, so I am thankful for that.

  76. My heart is breaking for all of you. May you all be carried and held close by Him in the days of painful, bittersweet rejoicing that she is now pain free and by His side, and has returned home. Although she has now left you in this world, know that she will forever be smiling and laughing with you, and is holding His hand, happy and at peace, dancing the streets of Heaven. Praying for you both, and your beautiful boys. xx

  77. As a mom that also lost our 3 year old daughter almost four months ago, I have felt the pain along side of you for your sweet little Phoebe. It is hard to say goodbye and really grasp that their fight is over. Her pain is gone and she has her healing is now. That has been the hope I have held onto in the hardest moments of missing my sweet girl. I’m sorry for your family’s loss and want to give you a giant hug and let you know I will be praying for you all! You are not alone in this journey, our family and many more will be praying for the loving arms of God to surround you and bring you joy in the middle of your deep sadness.

  78. Dear Amey and Nathan, our hearts are with you. Your angel girl has touched our lives and drawn us in. We are forever changed by her radiate love, beauty, joy and courage. Forever changed by your deep faith and bravery. Praying…praying…for His comfort to surround you and carry you. Good bye sweet Phoebe girl…we love you.

  79. When I lost my my mother, this helped me.

    I am standing upon the seashore. A ship, at my side,
    spreads her white sails to the moving breeze and starts
    for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength.
    I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck
    of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.

    Then, someone at my side says, “There, she is gone”

    Gone where?

    Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast,
    hull and spar as she was when she left my side.
    And, she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port.

    Her diminished size is in me — not in her.
    And, just at the moment when someone says, “There, she is gone,”
    there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices
    ready to take up the glad shout, “Here she comes!”

  80. Heartbroken for your loss of Phoebe here on this side of eternity. Thankful that her suffering is over. We are committed to lifting you in prayer as you continue on this journey. Continuing to pray without ceasing for both of you and your boys.

  81. Thinking and praying for your family. Sweet angel Phoebe has had such an impact on people all around the world. What wonderful parents and family she has. Bless you – praying for comfort and peace.
