Jonathan could not have picked a better family to bless in his short time here. He (and both of you) have touched so many so deeply.

{{{{{HUGS}}}}}

Pam said...

I am so sorry. 3 hours and a lifetime of memories. God bless all of you.

Heidi said...

What an angel to have.

You will still be in my thoughts and prayers long after this time passes.

Thanks for sharing his life with everyone. He has really changed some of the things I have been thinking about.

Just getting up to head to the airport and know that the 'light' is all around you as your sweet baby only left a short time ago with the angels, yet will never be gone from your hearts and all who love you. He is now 'blossoming' with the angels and saints in his rightful place with our Lord, our God. Know that prayers are floating continuously and surrounding you with love.
Look forward to seeing you!
Janet

It was such a blessing that you got to spend that time with him. My heart aches for you, I am so sorry.

Jaimey & Zack,

You may not know me, but my fiance is Jason Campaniello. I just wanted you to know that we have been following your story about Jonathan for the past few days and he has touched our hearts so deeply. You two are such strong and amazing people. Jonathan was so lucky to be born into such a wonderful and caring family. Your family will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.

You have been and will continue to be in my prayers. I think this time was the hardest for me, when I didn't have my angel Candace with me any longer. My heart aches for you, but I know our loving Heavenly Father will carry you both through this. I'm so grateful you were given some time with him. What a blessing. You're both in my thoughts and prayers. Much love, Krista

I am so happy and so sad for you all at the same time. I'm glad you had almost three hours with him and I know you took in every single minute. Bless you all - what a tough way to let go.

sorry miss spells

This might not help, but I believe that when a baby is taken from this world... It's because they are so perfect, there is no need for test. God must have been missing your sweet perfect little angel.

I'll be praying for you and that the spirit will comfort your home.
I'm so sorry for your loss!!!

Queen of Paper said...

one more thing... maybe you will find comfort in another friend that lost her sweet baby, just a few days old

Peace and Blessing to you guys! Your courage, strength, and perserverance is and was truly inspiring! 3 hours of the most amazing moments and memories. God could have not chosen a better family for Jonathan to be a part of. As a friend told me during and in my situation..."Planted on earth....blooming in Heaven!" Jonathan will not be forgotten and we will celebrate his life for years to come. Congratulations on the arrival of Jonathan, and my condolensces for his departure! Love you guys!

Your strength never ceases to amaze me. When I heard the news, I began to sob, and tears are still present, but I definitely know his time here on earth was predetermined. He has now returned where he is meant to be and will continue to watch over your entire family.

Thank you for including us on this journey and allowing us to be here for you. If you need anything, please do not hesitate to let me know. Anything at all. You'll continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

hugs,
michelle

Cookingmama said...

Thanks for sharing your story and for enjoying every moment with him. These days when so many choose to terminate a pregnancy it's neat to see a family welcome a baby unconditionally even though it must be very painful.

Marlyn said...

I am so happy that you had three beautiful hours with your little boy! I know you will treasure that time forever. Happy birthday Jonathan. Fly high on your new wings!

Gre said...

Wow, Jonathan was as tough as his momma. I'm so glad that you had three hours with him for love and cuddles. My thoughts are with you today.

Geneva said...

This made me think of your amazing outlook over the last several weeks.

"Death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because dawn has come."
--Rabindranath Tagore


Jonathan will be with you forever, watching with love from a beautiful place nearby and knowing you'll be together again in the fullness of time.

mo said...

Not sure what to say... I am so glad you were able to have as long as you did have with him. Lots and lots of love and hugs. You are in my thoughts.

eireann said...

Hi guys,

I am sending hugs and love and prayers to all three of you.

I'm sure when you started this you never imagined how many lives Jonathon would touch. But he and you have touched mine. I just wanted to let you know that.

JordanB said...

Jaimey you and Zack are such inspirations to me and anyone who has been touched by your lives. I am so very glad that you got three glorious hours with your angel and I feel certain that you savored every second of it. Your strength and attitudes will inspire me for the rest of my life. Baby Jonathan is so lucky to have chosen such wonderful and caring parents. Peace and strength be with you. HUGS.

I know that there is nothing I can say to help ease the pain you are going through. I do know that Johathan has amazing parents and a wonderful big brother. He will always be in your hearts and will always be with you!

It was an honor to meet your beautiful baby boy this morning. What a miracle. Looking into his eyes reminded me that each life is an absolute miracle, no matter now short or long their stay here on earth. His life has touched so many. I am in awe by your grace, love, and strength. I am honored to be your sister, and honored to be Jonathon's aunt. I love you so very, very much. We'll be waiting here at home with open arms.

Steve and Jenny said...

Zack, Jaimey, Grayson and Baby Jonathan, our thoughts are with you all! You are all wonderful and Jonathan is blessed to have you as parents and Grayson as a big brother. Our hearts go out to you today and with the days to come. Love, Steve and Jen

Jaimey & Zack,

I was so deeply touched by your precious little Jonathan, thank you for sharing him with us. His soft, smooth skin, precious little lips, tiny little fingernails, and perfect little feet have made a permanent impression on my heart. Jonathan was such a fighter and he really is such a beautiful little guy. He will always have a special place in my heart... as will you.

My thoughts are with the two of you and Grayson today and through the upcoming weeks and months.

Take Care,
Tasha

I have don't know what to say to express how I feel for you and Zach today. I admire your strength within yourself and compassion for your little angel. You are amazing parents and Greyson and Johnathon are such lucky kids to have you as such!! May God Bless you during these trying times. If you ever need to chat please do...I will definately be more caring and loving to my children today...a day another angel was born to guide and protect their family. {{{LOVE and HUGS}}}

Jamiey & Zack,
There is not enough words that can express my feelings for you, but what I can tell you is what someone else told me when I lost 4 beautiful babies...could never carry them to term after my first son was born. God Blessed you dearly and for a short time he Blessed you again but Jonathan was so special that he was needed for a purpose higher than what you could give him. He truly is an angel and you and your family are a blessing to all of us to have shared every moment of his life with us. You have a son as I do and I always look at the light in his eyes.He has given me so many Blessings you can't imagine. And now as I go thru radiation for my breast cancer he has been my life and my light, he is my special angel even though I lost 4 others there isn't a day that I think about them, but as the pastor told me you will see Jonathan again I Promise...he will be waiting for you with open arms. there is a song that got me thru my time of need and i think it is by lee ann rimes ...about the light in their eyes and things...I will find it for you...and if you find that you need to talk please feel free to contact me..I would Love to help in anyway..your angel is gone for now but not ever forgotten and you had 3 special hours with him...the Lord gave him to a good and loving family, but he gave him special wings as well, remember. Please e-mail me anytime, your in my prayers and thoughts, Love and Blessings, Brenda1958...Davidnbrenda@sbcglobal.net

My deepest condolences to you, Zack and Grayson. I'm so happy you had 3 hours with Jonathan. Much love...

He will be cherished by everyone.

Carolyn King said...

My deepest sympathies on the loss of your son Jonathan.

I found your blog through unity...already typed a message out but then lost it...but what I said before is that I know the deep sorrow you are feeling. I lost my first son 13 years ago--he lived for only 9 hours before we had to remove support. He had a post urethral valve obstruction that was not detected through ultrasound and so when he was born we were shocked that he was sick at all. The obstruction was a full one and because it went undetected it ended up killing his kidneys and bladder....

I know that he is in heaven...it is just so hard to be the ones left behind.

Please contact me if you ever want to talk. You are all in my prayers.

I am sorry to hear of the loss of your precious little boy. My daughter Josie blessed us with 5 days in 2000. Her memory still lives in our hearts, and I know you will always treasure the time you had. People will say ,"Time heals." I don't believe that, but I do want you to know, "Time eases pain." May you be surrounded by caring family and friends. Also, the photographer who started Now I Lay Me Down is our family photographer. She is a wonderful, amazing person. I am so glad you were able to have these pictures!

The love of your family doesn't appear to have boundaries. What a testament to love!

Big Texas prayers for you four. I wish Leslie and I could be there just to give you a hug or two. Can you accept long distance hugs? I hope so.

God loves y'all and has a wonderful plan for your lives. As time passes, the hurt modifies some, the love stays.

Phil & Leslie Petty
