In Loving Memory

Here is a email I got from my amazing Aunt that lives in AZ.

Our family is saddened by the death of our little grandson Ryan Aaron Bankhead. He passed away on Friday morning. Our son Aaron and his wife Jen are devastated but with everyone's love, support and prayers have felt the love and comfort of our Savior with them. Ryan  was 7 months old and their only son. Ryan has three older sisters who adored their little brother.
We are so grateful and blessed for the knowledge of the gospel and God's plan for us. We feel his comforting spirit with us now. We appreciate all the prayer's from family and friends. It's the best gift they have shared with us.
God bless you and your family
Love, Gayle

Little Ryan got his blanket wrapped around his neck during his nap.  My heart breaks for my cousin and his wife Jen.  They are amazing people and I know they will grow from this challenge.  How lucky we truly are to know that families are for eternity.

That is so heartbreaking. Though I don't know them I will definitely pray for their family. My baby is almost seven months old and I just can't imagine what they are going through.
