In loving memory of Finnlee James Vanderpool

On the morning of March 20th my precious cousin Ashley went into labor with her firstborn at 40 weeks into her pregnancy.  Upon arriving to the hospital she and her husband Nathaniel were told their sweet boy no longer had a heartbeat.  He had shortly before entered into the gates of his Heavenly home.  

Sweet baby boy Finnlee James Vanderpool was delivered at 10:04pm on March 20th. Ashley, Nathaniel, along with their parents and siblings were able to spend some time with him.  He is absolutely beautiful and perfect and now wrapped closely in the arms of our Savior.

Friends we are at a loss for the grief that is being felt.  This little boy was so tenderly loved and wanted but we know in all things God is good and that he is safely in his presence.

With this gofundme I am hoping to give them the time they need to grieve and support one another.  This fundraising will go towards their hospital expenses, a memorial for Finn, and bereavement counseling.

Nate's career is in ministry at their church East Side Baptist in Kansas City, MO.  This additional assistance while not taking away their pain will give them some room to grieve without any additional worries or stress.

Most importantly we appreciate all of your prayers for them as they grieve.  We know we serve a God who loves and is in the midst of this storm right there with them.
