George Charles Garman 09/09/09 to 01/29/10

January 29, 2010 our world was turned upside down when our 4 month old little boy earned his wings after a battle with Mitochondrial Disease and awoke in the Lords loving arms.

"Life can not be measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away."

George's Guardian's of Grace Projects

Stocking project is now in full force collecting donations. We have a list of the items we can use. You can also choose to sponsor a stocking in memory or honor of someone else. We will include a paragraph or two in the cards we place in the stockings to let the recipient know about the person that means so much to you. Our paypal account is posted on this page and ready to take donations. Email us for a list of items needed or with any questions or information you would like included on a sponsored stocking/donation.

"I Can Tell" (Revised)

I can tell by that look my friend
that we need to talk.
So come take my hand
and let's go for a walk.
See, I'm not like the others -
I won't shy away
Because I want to hear
what you have to say.

Your child has died
and you need to be heard
But they don't want to hear
a single word.
They say your child's with God
so be strong
They say all the "right things"
that somehow seem wrong.

I'll walk in your shoes
for more than a mile
I'll wait while you cry
and be glad if you smile.
I won't criticize you
or judge you or scorn
I'll just stay and listen
'til night turns to morn.

Yes the journey is hard
and unbearably long
and I know you think
you're not quite that strong.
So just take my hand
"cause I've got time to spare
and I know how it hurts, friend,
for I have been there.

See I owe a debt
you can help me repay
for not long ago,
I was helped the same way.
And I stumbled and fell
through a world so unreal.
So believe me when I say
I know how you feel.

I don't look for praise
or financial gain
And I'm sure not the kind
who gets joy out of pain.
I'm just a strong shoulder
who'll be here til the end
I'll be your
Compassionate Friend...
