The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
~ Psalm 34:18
Some people only dream of angels; we held one in our arms.
Our precious little angel, Seneca Sandidge Jr., beloved infant son of Seneca Sandidge and Kara Cook, of Madison Heights, went to be with our Lord on Wednesday, September 20, 2023. We may have only held you in our arms for a moment, but we will hold you in our hearts forever.

For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

…and to think, the first thing he saw when his little eyes opened was the face of Jesus.
