In Memory of Baby Jedidiah

It's with great sadness that I share with you that Michelle and Cord Zamarripa had to say goodbye to their precious baby Jedidiah this morning.  He fell asleep peacefully at home, and did not wake up. 

As many of you know, Jedidiah was not supposed to make it through his birth, yet he pleasantly surprised us all by living. He was a true warrior and proved that we do not know all the answers. He showed us a great huge love in many ways, bigger than we can ever describe. That type of love is something that can only really be felt within. One of the ways he showed us how to live life was how he pulled family, friends, and total strangers together to help each other out in times of need.  We all slowed down a little, reminding us about the simplicities of life and how the tiny gesture of donating a meal or sending good thoughts to another human being is where we all should keep our hearts. He guided the way to a path so we could take notice the things that are most important. He gave us an abundance of hope. He showed us that above all, love is what matters. 

We are all mourning his loss. You and I and every single person who helped the Zamarippa Family. Every person who prayed or sent love to baby Jedidiah, we are brought together once again, unfortunately this time to grieve. We are deeply saddened by his passing and I encourage you to remember the wonderful things he taught each and every one of us. 

Parents never intend on having to say good bye to their baby. They never anticipate having to plan their funeral. That is where The Zamarripa Family is at right now. This fund has been established to try and ease the financial stress as they make challenging decisions in regards to their baby passing and how they wish to memorialize his short life.  

A generous goal has been set, this I know. But just like the path Jedidiah proved to us, I have hope that we will not just meet that goal but we will surpass it. I would like the Zamarripa Family to be able to have their son's funeral completely paid off so they can concentrate on learning to cope with the void they have to live with now. 

Funds will be transferred to Michelle and Cord Zamarripa directly.

If you are just finding out about sweet baby Jedidiah's passing, please know the family is heartbroken and wants to thank you for your understanding and prayers during this difficult time. Michelle and Cord thank you for everything you have done to help them; meals, prayers and the abundance of love. Please have them in your prayers and thoughts as they navigate through the days ahead.
