Dear Beloved Family and Friends,
We are broken hearted this evening to share that our beautiful baby boy, Lemuel Craig Houston, entered peacefully into the loving arms of Jesus, while being held by his loving mother and father and surrounded by his siblings. We covet your prayers as we grieve his earthly loss and celebrate his heavenly reward.
“Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.”
2 Corinthians 5:6–8
We are so grateful for the medical care we have received beginning with the first responders at our home, the ER Staff at Harrison Medical Center, and the stellar care that we have received for the past 16 days at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit from Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital in Tacoma. Every Physician, Nurse, Respiratory Therapist, housekeeper, and hospital staff provided us with competent and compassionate care.
We are also humbled by the thousands from all over the World who have prayed for our precious Lem! We have good news, your prayers and ours have been answered, Lemuel is completely and finally healed.
“Bless the LORD, O my soul: And all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; So that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalm 103:1–5
