His birthday is in March, and this year he will spend his 12th birthday with Jesus. Christian passed away this morning (1/12) while in the hospital at Chapel Hill due to diminished lung volume. He was born with cerebral palsy.
In our minds we can see him walking and talking with Jesus. He is running, playing, and having a grand time in Heaven. He was never able to walk and talk, or run and play in this life, but right now he is whole and and he is happy. Christian had the most beautiful big smile and the brightest eyes. Did I mention he loved Country music and loved to watch Country music videos? He was a blessing to family, and his family was a blessing to him. Amy, Patrick, Leigh Kendra, and Justin are hurting due to the loss, but they know the truth, and the truth tells us in Revelation 21:4 (KJV),
"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." There is no more pain or suffering for Christian. This brings peace to the hearts of those that love him.
When Amy and Patrick Collins were awarded custody of Christian, his pre-existing condition caused burial insurance to be expensive. Due to the expense they do not have burial insurance for him. We approach you hoping that you will pass this along. Help if you feel led to. Any amount will be greatly appreciated.
I was not sure of an amount to place on this campaign. $3200 is just a number. Any money given will go to Amy Collins for the burial expenses for Christian. Amy will be in charge of final expenses and any and all money collected in this campaign. We know that the service and burial will not be before Monday 1/15/18, so that is the date I am providing as a marker for how soon funds are needed.
UPDATE: Because the goal has not been met and enough monies have not been collected to cover expenses the campaign has been extended through 1/30/2018.
On behalf of Christian's family, I thank you. Prayers are needed. Please pass this along.
