Please pray for the Rasmussens

Early last Sunday morning I got a call from Katie, my friend Kristie's sister. This is when my heart broke into a million little pieces. Kristie and her daughter, Samantha (a little younger than Emma), were involved in our Waco Moms Club until they moved to North Carolina last Fall. Kristie is the most positive, uplifting, encouraging and Godly woman I have ever met in my life. She is an absolute joy to be around or to talk to.

Kristie was pregnant during the move and gave birth to Miss Amber Grace Rasmussen this past January. I had talked to Kristie several times since their move. Last Sat night Amber passed away in her sleep. Kristie went to check on her and discovered that her precious baby girl had gone to Heaven. After a series of tests, it is being called SIDS.

I haven't been able to think about much other than the Rasmussen family. I hurt for Corey & Kristie. I can't imagine the pain that they are going through. Below is a link to their memorial letter.


  1. My heart stopped beating when Rachel told me. My chest literally hurt. I feel the same exact way as you do about Kristie. She is an amazing person. I never ever saw her without a smile on her face.

    The link didn't work for me, I'd love to read the letter.

  2. Marie - sorry the link didn't work. I e mailed it to you.
