Dear blog readers,
Please pray for John and Audra Notgrass! Their 16-month-old son,
Avery went to be with Jesus just a little while ago!!!! Yesterday he was
airlifted to the hospital with a severe abscess abdominal infection.
He was put on life support and there was no brain activity.  They
couldn't do surgery while he was that sick. Oh, this is so painful 
especially for John and Audra as this is the third time they've 
lost a baby, two girls died before full-term. We love them. 
Please pray for them.

We love you, Avery! We will all miss you 'til we see you in glory!

"My heart is severely pained within me,"
Psalm 55:4


  1. I am so sorry to read this...what a tragedy. As the mom of two little boys, I will be sure to hug them a little extra today. What a precious little boy, what a beautiful smile he had. My heart truly breaks for his mom and dad..

    1. My heart is breaking for this family. They will be in my prayers.

  2. Thank you! It's so painful. They're so devastated. We heard that Avery died in Audra's arms! I can only faintly imagine. They need all the prayer they can get. Audra is deeply depressed. I don't blame her at all, but she's 8 months pregnant with another baby boy! All prayers and kind thoughts are welcome!

  3. OH, I cannot imagine their grief during this time. My heart breaks for them. We've known Audra and her family for years....I pray that God will teach them and comfort them through this difficult, difficult time. Poor poor Audra.

  4. I know! We didn't really get to know the Throwers until 2007, but we've come to love them and be good friends too.

  5. Never got to see the baby but knew Audra well. praying! come to my blog.
